    Oxyntomodulin - A Frost favorite / TrialsTo Begin EOY

    In closing, I'll mention one product that the people around me know is one of my favorites and it's called oxyntomodulin. Oxyntomodulin is a naturally occurring hormone that's produced in the gut in response to a meal. It's designed, it's nature's way of, I should say, of controlling our appetite so that we avoid overweight and obesity. Our product given once a week, and this is a big issue because a problem with this product although it's been known for a long time, is the duration with acting, given once a week makes them eat normally, they shrink back to their normal size and the Type II diabetes goes away. We hope to have this product in human trials sometime around the end of this year.
