Start-Ups in Obesity

The unanimous rejection of Sanofi-Aventis' obesity drug rimonabant by an FDA Advisory Committee in June hasn't put off the host of firms, large and small, seeking an answer to the obesity epidemic. Despite the many drug casualties in this area, still, it seems, no approach is ruled out.

Omentec Biosciences Inc.

Omentec was formed around omentin, a protein selectively expressed in visceral (central) adipose tissue, where fat is stored. Visceral obesity, as opposed to subcutaneous (peripheral) fat accumulation, is associated with a higher risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. That omentin is found mostly in visceral adipose tissue suggests it may be an important signaling factor in fat metabolism, insulin sensitivity, and inflammation, with therapeutic and diagnostic applications.
