LIPO-202-CL-31 was a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2 proof of concept trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of two doses of LIPO-202 versus placebo for the reduction of submental bulging due to subcutaneous fat. The trial enrolled 162 subjects at 12 sites across the United States. Subjects were randomized 1:1:1 and received up to either 0.3 mcg, or 3.0 mcg dose of LIPO-202, or placebo. Subjects received up to 30 subcutaneous injections of LIPO-202 or placebo once a week for eight weeks and follow up visits to assess safety and efficacy occurred one week and four weeks post the last treatment.
The study endpoints included both safety and efficacy measurements. Efficacy measures assessed improvement in the subject’s submental region as evaluated by both the patient and clinician, covering overall subject satisfaction and evaluation of submental fat thickness by calipers.
