Published on

Innovent Biologics (OTCPK:IVBIY)

Innovent Biologics (OTCPK:IVBIY) reported that the first subject in the higher-dose group of their phase 2 trial of mazdutide in Chinese adults with obesity had been successfully dosed.

According to the manufacturer, the purpose of the placebo-controlled trial was to assess the safety and effectiveness of mazdutide in Chinese individuals who were overweight or obese.

At week 24, each dose of mazdutide exhibited significant efficacy on body weight loss compared with placebo, according to results for the low dose groups – 3.0 mg, 4.5 mg, and 6.0 mg – reported by the company in June. It is planned to enroll 80 people who will be given mazdutide 9 mg or a placebo for 24 weeks.
