2014-08-26 22:47:05 | BioPortfolio


This is a multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, Phase 2 study. Patients will be treated for a total of 12 weeks. There will be a 6 week follow-up period after the treatment period ends. Patients will be randomly assigned to low dose CJC 1295, high dose CJC 1295 or placebo.

The objective is to assess and compare the efficacy, pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of CJC 1295 in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) associated visceral obesity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition of having excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominal obesity is typically defined as waist circumferences of 40 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women. Abdominal obesity raises the risk of developing disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension and METABOLIC SYNDROME X.

The condition of weighing two, three, or more times the ideal weight, so called because it is associated with many serious and life-threatening disorders. In the BODY MASS INDEX, morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2.

Agents that increase energy expenditure and weight loss by neural and chemical regulation. Beta-adrenergic agents and serotoninergic drugs have been experimentally used in patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) to treat obesity.

A status with BODY WEIGHT that is grossly above the acceptable or desirable weight, usually due to accumulation of excess FATS in the body. The standards may vary with age, sex, genetic or cultural background. In the BODY MASS INDEX, a BMI greater than 30.0 kg/m2 is considered obese, and a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese (MORBID OBESITY).

The discipline concerned with WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY.
