Using a crossover design, we will compare the effects of a placebo to an angiotensin II receptor antagonist on the urinary sodium excretion response in obese normotensive subjects and untreated hypertensive African-Americans subjects. We expect that the urinary sodium excretion response to angiotensin II receptor antagonist therapy will be less ...


Investigating the Use of Quercetin on Glucose Absorption in Obesity and Obesity With Type 2 Diabetes

Postprandial hyperglycemia and the resultant hyperinsulinemia contribute to the cardiovascular complications seen in obesity and in type 2 diabetes.

This is a dose-finding study to evaluate the change in weight after 24 weeks treatment with 8 different doses of LIK066 compared to placebo in obese or overweight adults, followed by 24 weeks treatment with 2 doses of LIK066 and placebo.


The Addition of Probiotic Consumption to a Nutritional Intervention and Caloric Restriction on Body Weight and Composition in Overweight Participants

Limited interventional human studies suggest that probiotic supplementation may be a beneficial strategy for promoting weight loss when added to a nutritional intervention via their effects on lipid absorption and metabolic signaling molecules. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of addition of a probiotic supplementation to ...


Evaluation of Safety Efficacy and Thermogenesis-induction of RZL-012 in Overweight and Obese Volunteers

Obesity is a direct result of food-intake in excess of body energy expenditure. Therefore, a feasible approach to combat obesity is via energy-consuming activities, such as physical exercise. Unfortunately, our modern society is moving in the other direction, spending more time in immobilized positions, at work and at home. An ...


Effects of Carbohydrate in Diet and Supplements on the GI Tolerability of LIK066

The purpose of this study is to determine if LIK066 taken with a meal containing low carbohydrate is associated with less diarrhea compared to a high carbohydrate meal and to assess the potential effects of supplements such as psyllium or calcium carbonate on alleviating diarrhea associated with LIK066.
