  • The approval was based on the results of 2 studies from the P-III (SURMOUNT) trials incl. (SURMOUNT-1) & (SURMOUNT-2) evaluating Zepbound (inj.) vs PBO in individuals (n=≥5,000) with obesity, excess weight & weight-related medical problems
  • At 72 weeks, the patients (n=2,539) in the P-III (SURMOUNT-1) trial, showed a significant reduction in weight vs PBO. with individuals taking a low dose (5 mg) losing ~34lb & those on a high dose (15 mg) losing ~48 lb vs PBO (7lb). Additionally, compared to 1.5% in PBO, 1 in 3 patients receiving the highest dose, nearly lost 25% of their body weight
