Hypothalamic Obesity Clinical Trials Update




Posted by


We are pleased to share updates on several clinical trials focusing on hypothalamic obesity (HO), a challenging condition that affects many in our community. These trials are crucial steps forward in finding effective treatments and improving the quality of life for those impacted by HO. Here are the latest developments:

1. A Study of RM-718 in Healthy Subjects and in Patients With HO

This study is evaluating the safety and efficacy of RM-718, administered as a once-weekly injection. The trial is ongoing and aims to determine the optimal dose for patients with HO. Early results are promising, and we look forward to seeing more detailed outcomes as the study progresses. For more information, you can visit the Study of RM-718.

2. A Study to Assess Efficacy and Safety of LB54640 in Patients With Hypothalamic Obesity

The focus of this trial is on LB54640, a drug being assessed for its safety and effectiveness in treating HO. Sites for this study will be opening soon, providing more opportunities for patient participation. This is a critical step in expanding our understanding and treatment options for HO. To learn more, check out the Study of LB54640.

3. Efficacy and Safety of Phentermine/Topiramate in Youth With Hypothalamic Obesity

This study is investigating the combination of phentermine and topiramate for treating HO in youth. It aims to evaluate both the efficacy and safety of this treatment, offering hope for younger individuals dealing with HO. The trial is currently in progress, and we are eager to see how these treatments can benefit our younger patients. More details can be found on the Study of Phentermine/Topiramate.

These studies represent significant strides to find effective treatments for hypothalamic obesity. We are committed to keeping you updated on their progress and any new developments. Support and participation in these trials are crucial for advancing research and finding solutions for HO.
