Genetic Testing and Phenotypic Characterization of Severely Obese Pediatric and Adult Volunteers


Brief description of study

The purpose of this screening study is to identify people who have a rare genetic cause of obesity - specifically three genetic variants (a change in the DNA structure) of the POMC, PCSK1 and LepR genes that are currently known to result in obesity.

This screening study will not include any investigational drugs. You will be asked to provide a DNA sample and answer some questions about your medical history and hunger.
