Overweight / Obesity Trial

Weighing Your Options

Cake at the birthday party. Pizza on a night out. Candy at work. When you’re struggling to lose weight, it can feel like everywhere you turn, temptation lurks. You want to lose weight, but nothing seems to work. This is a heavy burden for the more than 1.9 billion people worldwide who are overweight or obese.

As you know, being overweight or having obesity can lead to other health issues, as well as emotional and mental stress. And with new diet and exercise programs promoted all the time, it can be hard to choose and then stick to a weight loss plan. If you’re not sure where to turn, the SURMOUNT-1 Study may be an option for you. Beyond a potential new weight management treatment option, study participants will also receive counseling and support to make healthier choices.

About the SURMOUNT-1 Study

We are looking for adults ages 18 and older who are overweight or have obesity and have been unsuccessful in achieving a healthy weight on their own. Those with diabetes mellitus will not qualify.

Individuals will be evaluated to determine their eligibility to participate in this study. Each person who qualifies will receive either the study drug or placebo, as well as study-related medical exams and laboratory tests, all at no cost. Compensation for travel may also be available.

What You Should Know about Clinical Research Studies

Clinical research studies aim to answer specific questions about how medicines work in the volunteers who take them. You should feel fully informed about what to expect from participation in a clinical research study.

Researchers use clinical research studies to:

  • Answer specific health questions
  • Learn about the effects and safety of investigational drugs
  • Help find new ways of using approved medications

Regulations and policies have been developed to help protect the rights, safety, and well-being of people who take part in clinical research studies and to help ensure that these studies are conducted according to strict scientific and ethical principles. Before a clinical research study can begin, and institutional review board (IRB) or ethics committee (EC) must review and approve the study.

Participation in any clinical research study is completely voluntary, and you may withdraw from the study at any time for any reason. Before volunteering for a clinical research study, it is important to weigh the potential risks and benefits of participation, which the study team will inform you of, as well as possible side effects. To make an informed decision, gather as much information as possible and talk to your healthcare providers about any questions you may have.
