By Zofia Zukowska (Editor), Giora Z. Feuerstein (Editor)

The NPY-family of peptides encompasses numerous teams of neurotransmitters and hormones, which exert various organic and pathological activities that undergo on all significant very important platforms. the popularity of the function of NPY in stimulation of nutrition consumption has already led to discovery of effective and selective NPY receptor Y-5 antagonists that are in medical improvement for weight problems whereas NPY Y1 receptors are precise for cardiovascular symptoms. examine into the a number of services of NPY and its receptors in neurological and affective problems also are actively pursued. This booklet is a distinct compilation of the newest breakthroughs in NPY/PYY neurobiology, cardiovascular and metabolic problems, written via overseas well known specialists with the target to synthesize prime innovations and information in aid for translational medication.
