As a complex syndrome, cachexia has different clinical manifestations; anorexia appears to be one of the most frequent findings, together with weight loss. Anorexia is the cause and partly the consequence of metabolic changes and of progressive undernourishment. In cancer cachexia, weight loss is associated with a marked decrease of ...
Tuomisto J T - - 1995
Long-term regulation of body weight and food intake were studied after rats were subjected to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), which causes hypophagia and body weight loss, and to ventromedial hypothalamic lesion, which causes hyperphagia, metabolic changes and obesity. These two factors appeared to have an interaction, as ventromedial hypothalamic lesion initially aggravated ...
