|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years to 70 Years
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
- 1. Subjects willing to comply with study requirements and have signed an informed consent form.
2. Age 18-70 3. BMI ≥ 35 kg/m² or BMI ≥ 30 kg/m² and hypertension or diabetes mellitus 4. Documented negative pregnancy test in women of childbearing potential. 5. Women of childbearing potential agree to remain on contraceptives for the duration of their trial participation.
1. Subjects receiving any prescription or over the counter weight loss medication within 30 days prior to randomization (including GLP-1 analogs).
2. Previous GI surgery that could preclude the ability to place the device. 3. Subjects with a history of abnormal GI anatomical findings documented on imaging study, which in the opinion of the investigator, may impair implantation of the IGB device 4. Subjects with severe GERD that are not responding to Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) 5. Known abnormal pathologies or conditions of the upper gastrointestinal tract.
6. Subjects with symptomatic gallstones within 6 months prior to randomization 7. Coagulopathy defined as hgb <10g/dl and platelet < 100,000/ml or diagnosis of hemophilia, factor X deficiencies or fibrinogen abnormalities 8. Subjects requiring prescription antithrombotic therapy (i.e. anticoagulant or antiplatelet agent) 9. Subjects unable to discontinue NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) or any other drugs with bleeding as a potential side effect during the study duration.
10. Subject is or has been enrolled in another investigational study within 3 months of participation into the current study 11. Subjects not residing within a 3 hour driving distance of the study center.
