Mitchell S Steiner, Speaker at Obesity Conferences
Veru Inc, United States


Highlighting the concerns that muscle loss caused by GLP-1 receptor agonists may accelerate the development of frailty in at-risk older sarcopenic obese patients with potential for physical function limitations, may be responsible for weight loss plateau where GLP-1 seem to stop working, and may trigger the overeating with rebound fat and weight regain upon stopping GLP-1 RA.

Presenting the 5 clinical studies of enobosarm in older patients and in patients with a cancer induced loss of appetite hypocaloric-like state that provide strong scientific rationale for ongoing Phase 2b enobosarm + GLP-1 RA clinical study.

Supporting evidence that enobosarm in combination with a GLP-1 RA may potentially augment the fat reduction with higher quality total weight loss while preserving muscle and physical function

Audience take away:

  • Understand the current unmet needs with muscle loss caused by GLP-1 receptor agonists for weight-loss.
  • Appreciate the importance of high-quality weight-loss, preferentially removing fat while preserving muscle.
  • Learn about the development of new approaches to achieve high-quality weight-loss.
