A peptide-based drug that targets the vasculature of adipose tissue induces weight loss and improves metabolic function in spontaneously obese monkeys. Fat Monkeys Get Trim The rapidly increasing rate of obesity worldwide is one of the biggest health challenges facing society today. Unlike related threats such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes, very few approved drugs are available to treat obesity despite some promising early-stage candidates. In a new study, Barnhart and… Expand
