The authors determined whether fear of anxiety symptoms mediates panicogenic responses to cholecystokinin tetrapeptide (CCK-4) in healthy subjects. Individuals with a preexisting high level of anxiety sensitivity (N = 10) experienced significantly more catastrophic cognitions and fear of somatic symptoms than did subjects with low (N = 9) or medium (N = 17) anxiety sensitivity, but they were not more susceptible to experiencing a panic attack. Thus, cognitive factors do not appear to be critical determinants of CCK-4-induced panic attacks.
