Abstract

We investigated the extrinsic gut neural mediation of the suppression of food intake in male Sprague-Dawley rats induced by peripheral intraperitoneal administration of 2 μg/kg interleukin-1β (IL-1β), 100 μg/kg bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS), and 2 mg/kg muramyl dipeptide (MDP). Food intake during the first 3 and 6 h of the dark cycle was measured in rats with subdiaphragmatic vagal deafferentation (n = 9), celiac superior mesenteric ganglionectomy (n = 9), combined vagotomy and ganglionectomy (n = 9), and sham deafferentation (n = 9). IL-1β, LPS, and MDP suppressed food intake at 3 and 6 h in all surgical groups. The results demonstrate that neither vagal nor nonvagal afferent nerves from the upper gut are necessary for the feeding-suppressive effects of intraperitoneal IL-1β, LPS, or MDP in the rat and suggest that peripheral administration of immunomodulators produces anorexia via a humoral pathway.
