  • This review provides a summary of currently available pharmaceutical therapies for the treatment of obesity, along with an overview of the pipeline of products currently in development, and the key mechanisms on which the major development candidates are based. In particular, the recent increase in understanding of the role of gut peptides in energy homeostasis is highlighted as a promising source of potential future obesity therapies.
