Obesity is a medical condition that occurs when a person carries excess weight or body fat that might affect their health. Obesity is defined as having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more, a calculation that takes a person’s weight and height into account. There are many reasons why some people have difficulty avoiding obesity. Usually, obesity results from a combination of inherited factors, combined with the environment and personal diet and exercise choices.
Obesity is not just a cosmetic concern. If an individual is obese or has excess weight, it can increase the risk of developing a number of diseases and health conditions. These include heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, and some types of cancer.
We at Artemis Institute for Clinical Research conduct clinical trials for investigative medications for the treatment of obesity. Qualified research participants will receive financial compensation for their time and travel, study-related medical and psychological evaluations, and the investigative study medication at no cost. Help advance medicine and medical research through participating in our clinical trial!
