Subjects meet inclusion for this study based on obesity (a high body mass index (BMI), which means too much weight for an individual's height), and they have Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF). This is a condition where the lower left chamber (left ventricle) of the heart is not able to fill properly with blood during the filling phase and the amount of blood pumped out to the body is below normal.
This study will help to find the best dose of HU6 for treating HFpEF, will help to see its impact on weight reduction, and will help to see its effect on subjects' ability to exercise and on how well they feel.
The study is a placebo-controlled double-blind study that will last approximately 28 weeks. There will be 8 clinic visits (approx. 6-8 hours), and 7 phone visits (approx. 20 minutes). The study drug will be capsules taken orally in the morning before eating.
Possible risks are loose bowel movements/diarrhea which was most prominent within the first 2-3 three weeks of dosing and seemed to improve with time and flushing, especially when alcohol is consumed.
This is a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled phase 2b clinical trial to characterize, examine and compare the effects of GLP-1 receptor agonist (semaglutide) in HIV-infected adult individuals with lipohypertrophy versus healthy controls with obesity but without HIV.
The two populations will be studied in separate but similarly-designed studies running in parallel.
Subjects in both populations will be assigned by chance (1:1) to semaglutide or placebo.
TARGET-HCC is a 15-year, longitudinal, observational study of the natural history and management of patients with HCC. The study will address important clinical questions that remain unanswered in the management of HCC with a unique research registry of participants with HCC from academic and community real-world practices. TARGET-HCC is disease focused, not drug specific, which allows for continuous acquisition of real-world evidence regarding the natural history, management, and outcomes of treatment with current therapies and new treatments that may be utilized in usual clinical practice.
