Study Description

Study GPIJ is a Phase 3, international, randomized, double-blind, parallel group, event-driven study to investigate the reduction of morbidity and mortality with once weekly investigational study medication treatment compared to placebo in adult participants living with obesity and Cardio Vascular Disease risk. The study includes a

  • screening period
  • dose escalation treatment period, and
  • maintenance treatment period.

The dose escalation treatment period is the first 24 weeks of the study. The maintenance treatment period duration depends on when the specified number of endpoint events for the final analysis occurs. If the maintenance treatment period extends beyond 264 weeks (Visit 28), participants will continue extended maintenance visits (EMV) every 12 weeks until the study ends and the final visit occurs.
