About the Study

Obesity rates have reached epidemic proportions not only across the United States, but across the world. Lifestyle intervention in the form of diet and exercise is always the first line of treatment for obesity, but it is difficult to achieve and maintain weight loss.  Surgical treatments also offer an effective alternative for some people with severe obesity, but surgery carries a large risk of complications.

RCR is conducting a 33 week research study to evaluate the effectiveness of an investigational medication injected weekly that, paired with diet and exercise, potentially could help with weight loss for individuals with a BMI between 30 – 40. Calculate your BMI by clicking here.
