Britain Gets Wonder Drug That Busts Fats

A new drug that busts fats as well as tackle health problems like diabetes and smoking has been introduced in Britain//. The drug has been estimated to reduce bodyweight by up to 10 per cent.

The drug Rimonabant, also called as Acomplia, has been said to be the first drug that targets the natural body system which governs several factors controlling weight, appetite, metabolism and energy use.

In addition it has been found to have the capacity to combat a smoker’s craving for nicotine.

Drug regulators have decided to grant a license throughout the European Union for Rimonabant. And Britain is the first country to receive it. According to experts 20 per cent of Britain’s are possible candidates for treatment.

However, the drug has to also receive approval from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence. The NHS also receives advice from this institute for best practice and they are not expected to receive guidance on Rimonabant for at least two years.

With the drug expected to cost £55.20 per patient per month, or £1.97 per tablet, treating even a fraction of the eligible group could cost the NHS billions.

Sanofi Aventis, the drug’s manufacturers, argues that the drug gives good value for money as against the £7 billion-per-year cost of overcoming obesity and overweight problems.

Trials were conducted on more than 6,000 patients in America and Europe. It was found that about a quarter of those patients who took Rimonabant lost more than 10 per cent of their initial body weight after a year. Half of them lost over 5 per cent of body weight. Waist circumference showed a reduction of approximately six to seven centimeters.

Significant improvements were also noted in glucose, cholesterol and triglyceride blood fats readings. In addition high-density lipoprotein fats or the good cholesterol showed an increase of 8 to 9 per cent although only half of this could be attributed to
