Another positive step in obesity research: Julio Rosenstock, MD, is a co-author of an article now featured on The New England Journal of Medicine homepage, and in the publication’s weekend email briefing. From the article, Daily Oral GLP-1 Receptor Agonist Orforglipron for Adults with Obesity: “At week 26, the mean change from baseline in body weight ranged from −8.6% to −12.6% across the orforglipron dose cohorts and was −2.0% in the placebo group. At week 36, the mean change ranged from −9.4% to −14.7% with orforglipron and was −2.3% with placebo.”
Dr. Rosenstock is a distinguished Principal Investigator and directs Velocity’s site in Dallas, TX.
