Renowned Experts to Share Early Insights Into Why Bariatric Surgery Improves Type 2 Diabetes for Many Patients
Date:6/24/2011

t of weight loss, a benefit widely acknowledged by leading advocacy organizations such as the American Heart Association and the International Diabetes Federation.(1,2,3,4,5,6) Yet real-world practice is slow to catch up to science. In fact, about 15 million people in the U.S. have morbid obesity, but only 1 percent of the clinically eligible population is being treated for morbid obesity through bariatric surgery.(7)

MARS: A Groundbreaking Research Partnership

To address this need, EES has partnered with experts at the Metabolic Diseases Institute at the University of Cincinnati and the GI Metabolism Laboratory and Weight Center at the Massachusetts General Hospital on the Metabolic Applied Research Strategy (MARS) project.  MARS research is designed to help deconstruct, understand and reinvent bariatric procedures in ways that lead to new therapies that are less costly, less invasive, and more effective than current options.

"There is a critical public health need to find novel ways of addressing the obesity epidemic and related co-morbidities, including type 2 diabetes," said Jessica Grossman, M.D., Medical Director, Medical Affairs and MARS, Ethicon Endo-Surgery. "We believe this research will make a valuable contribution by guiding us in the development of innovative, less-invasive and more accessible treatment options."

MARS researchers have been working to deconstruct current bariatric surgical procedures and understand their mechanisms at tissue, cellular, molecular and genetic levels. This knowledge can be used to develop novel therapies that increase procedure effectiveness, decrease risks and costs, and identify patient populations who most benefit from them. It also can be used to reproduce the therapeutic mechanisms of current bariatric surgical procedures by using less-invasive, less-risky, or less-costly approaches.
