    Abstract

    The effect of two cholecystokinin (CCK) receptor antagonists (L-364718 and L-365260) and of diazepam on voluntary food intake in chicken was studied. L-365260 significantly increased cumulative food intake at 30 and 60 min, whereas L-364718 had no effect. Diazepam also increased food intake at 30 minutes. It was therefore concluded that anxiolytic effects could account for an increase in food intake in the conditions under which the study was carried out. Consequently, the effect of L-365260 could either be due to its anxiolytic properties or to its direct effects on food intake control. © 1994.
