Orexigen® Therapeutics COR-BMOD Study Published in the Journal Obesity
Date:8/3/2010

ch which may include a combination of behavior modification and pharmacotherapy," said Thomas Wadden, Ph.D., lead investigator and Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and Director of the Center for Weight and Eating Disorders.  "This study clearly demonstrates that when Contrave is added to a state of the art diet and exercise regimen, patients can achieve significant incremental weight loss."  

Results showed that the addition of Contrave to intensive behavior modification was also associated with statistically significant greater improvements in markers of cardiometabolic risk, including waist circumference, triglycerides, high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and fasting insulin.  The most common adverse events included nausea, headache, constipation and dizziness.  Observed adverse events were, in general, consistent with the other studies within the COR program and with the safety profile of the constituent components.

"Medication alone may not be the answer for the majority of obese patients, so it's important that we understand the benefits of a multi-modal weight loss program," said Michael Narachi, CEO of Orexigen.  "The results from this study reinforce our belief that a weight management strategy, addressing both the biological and behavioral drivers of obesity, can be successful."

Study Design

COR-BMOD was a 56-week placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized trial that enrolled overweight and obese adults.  A total of 793 patients were randomized to receive either Contrave32 + BMOD or placebo + BMOD in a 3:1 ratio.  Nine sites in the United States participated in the study.
