Abstract

The antidiabetic drug metformin causes weight loss, but the underlying mechanisms are unclear. Recent clinical studies show that metformin increases plasma levels of the anorectic gut hormone, peptide YY (PYY), but whether this is through a direct effect on the gut is unknown. Objective: We hypothesized that exposure of human gut mucosal tissue to metformin would acutely trigger PYY secretion. Design, Setting, Participants, and Interventions: Mucosal tissue was prepared from 46 human colonic and 9 ileal samples obtained after surgical resection and ex vivo secretion assays were performed. Tissue was exposed to metformin, as well as a series of other compounds as part of our mechanistic studies, in static incubations. Supernatant was sampled after 15 minutes.
