lorcaserin group, compared to 2.2% of body weight, or 4.7 pounds, in the placebo group. Statistical separation from placebo was observed by Week 2, the first post-baseline measurement.
  • 22.6% of lorcaserin patients lost greater than or equal to 10% of their body weight from baseline, compared to 7.7% in the placebo group.

  • Lorcaserin patients who completed 52 weeks of treatment according to the protocol lost an average of 8.2% of body weight, or 17.9 pounds, compared to 3.4%, or 7.3 pounds, in the placebo group (p<0.0001).

Smith, M.D., Co-Principal Investigator and Professor and Assistant Director for Clinical Research at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center. "Obesity is a widespread disease; having a well tolerated and effective therapy that can be used by the majority of patients who need weight reduction could also have beneficial effects on co-morbid conditions, such as diabetes, lipid disorders, and cardiovascular disease."

The most frequent adverse events reported in Year 2 and their rates for lorcaserin and placebo patients, respectively, were as follows: upper respiratory tract infection (14.5% vs. 16.1%), nasopharyngitis (16.4% vs. 12.6%), sinusitis (8.6% vs. 6.9%), arthralgia (6.6% vs. 6.2%) and
