Natural gut hormone offers hope for new obesity drug

...earch showing that people with benign PP-secreting tumours have elevated levels of the hormone and yet appear to show no adverse side-effects. "These people may have had high levels of PP for ten or fifteen years without showing side effects," he explains. "In that sense, they have provided us with a natur...
