Weight Loss Meds Development

Today it was announced that Corcept Therapeutics Inc., of Menlo Park, Calif., reported results from two preclinical studies that show their new drug in development called "Corlux" can induce weight loss following olanzapine-induced weight gain and prevent the weight gain induced by olanzapine, brand name Zyprexa, which is one of several atypical antipsychotics that carry a warning of weight gain as a side effect.

This drug is still just in early stage trials - we'll report more as it gets closer to larger scale human trials, and potential general availability.

More Information: Corcept Therapeutics Inc.


Corlux is the same as RU486, the abortion pill if I remember. I believe Corlux is for psychotic major depression.
