Information provided by:
Alizyme Identifier:
First received: September 7, 2005
Last updated: April 10, 2007
Last verified: April 2007
The purpose of this study is to investigate the amount of metabolites of ATL-962 in the blood and to investigate the effect of ATL-962 on the amount of fat that is excreted in the faeces in subjects who are obese

Condition Intervention Phase
Obesity Drug: ATL-962 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Randomized, Double Blind, Parallel Group, Repeat Dose Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Study of Four Doses of ATL-962 (40mg, 80mg, 120mg 240mg) in Otherwise-Healthy Obese Volunteers

Further study details as provided by Alizyme:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics of metabolites of ATL-962

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Effect of ATL-962 on faecal fat excretion
  • Safety and tolerability of ATL-962

Estimated Enrollment: 80
Study Start Date: April 2005
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2005
Detailed Description:
Obesity is a significant and increasing clinical problem. There is a need for effective therapeutic agents to help people reduce weight. ATL-962 is a lipase inhibitor which could reduce the amount of fat absorbed from a person's diet, leading to weight reduction.
