A Study of the Efficacy of Subcutaneous Phosphatidylcholine and Deoxycholate Injections for Localized Fat Removal

20:41 EDT 23rd April 2014 | BioPortfolio


The primary objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholate subcutaneous injections for localized fat removal.

Subcutaneous injections of the study drug will be efficacious in decreasing localized fat deposits due to the known fat necrosis effects on fat tissue after study drug tissue incubation.
