ZGN-433 caused 24 obese women to lose, on average, a kilogram a week for a month – with no harmful side effects. This is a stunning rate of weight loss, especially as the women ate normally and were not given exercise advice. The drug works by encouraging the fat tissues to release fatty acids into the bloodstream to be converted into energy. The same drug has also been discovered to encourage the production of ketone bodies releases the fat to be burned up. larger trials will still be required and more funds will still have to be raised to aid this purpose of marketing an otherwise promising diet pill. If the redeveloped drug well achieves its purpose to combat obesity problems, market reception is expected to tremendously rise.
