Further study details as provided by Essentialis, Inc.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare the single-dose and steady-state, fed and fasting PK profiles of two dose levels of diazoxide administered as DCCR [ Time Frame: 35 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess the impact of dosing in the absence of food on the steady-state pharmacokinetic profiles of two dose levels of diazoxide administered orally as DCCR under fed conditions [ Time Frame: 35 days ]
