Abstract
Previous investigators in our laboratory have demonstrated that peptide YY (PYY), a putative gut hormone, exerts a potent emetic effect when administered intravenously to conscious dogs. The current study was carried out to examine the effects of an emetic dose of PYY on cardiovascular status, splanchnic blood flow distribution (estimated using 15 mu m microspheres) and small intestinal motility in anesthetized dogs.
