Adjunct Phentermine + Topiramate After Bariatric Surgery in 12-24 Year Olds

2019-09-24 05:27:29 | BioPortfolio


The goal of this pilot study is to establish the feasibility and initial efficacy of the combination of phentermine and topiramate for adolescents and young adults who require additional risk reduction after bariatric surgery. This study will use a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blinded design to evaluate an adjunctive 12-week intervention of phentermine + topiramate + standard of care vs. placebos + standard of care 6 months after bariatric surgery, among 12 to 24 year olds who don't achieve expected weight loss or who remain severely obese (n=10 total).
