Exploratory Study to Investigate the Effect of Dapagliflozin and Exenatide Combined on Body Weight (Dapalost)

Obesity is a medical condition which increases the risk of other diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Obesity-related risk factors for the development of other metabolic diseases include unstable glucose levels and high blood pressure. Dapagliflozin and exenatide are both approved worldwide for treatment of patients with Type 2 Diabetes. Dapagliflozin works by lowering glucose levels by inhibiting the renal reabsorption of glucose and thereby promoting its urinary excretion and energy loss and thereby reduction in body fat. Exenatide exhibits many of the same glucose-lowering actions of that of a naturally occurring hormone and leads to weight loss mainly via reduced energy intake, most likely via a central effect on appetite regulation. The purpose of this exploratory study is to investigate if a combination treatment with dapagliflozin and exenatide have a synergistic effect on weight loss in non-diabetic obese subjects. Subjects will be treated for 24 weeks with either active combination treatment or placebo (non-active treatment). Neither study personnel nor subjects will know what treatment is given.
