Obesity is arguably the most pressing public health issue in the United States with its chronic progression that is associated with both type 2 diabetes and adverse cardiovascular health. Current therapies have struggled to achieve meaningful weight loss without compromising the overall risk-benefit of intervention. Following a series of high profile market withdrawals, the barren obesity drug landscape saw a relative rush of new treatment options come to market from 2012 to 2017. In this report, endocrinologists reveal how the current generation of antiobesity drugs compare with one another and what attributes the next generation of these agents will need to crack this medically important and potentially lucrative market.
