• 索马鲁肽治疗肥胖的随机试验 • 索马鲁肽每周一次给药治疗成人超重或肥胖 • 利拉鲁肽对2型糖尿病有效 • 利拉鲁肽治疗儿童和青少年2型糖尿病患者 • 利拉鲁肽治疗青少年肥胖的临床试验






在这项随机、双盲试验(包括56周的治疗期和26周的随访期)中,我们纳入了单纯生活方式干预措施效果不佳的青少年(12~<18岁)肥胖症患者。我们以1∶1的比例将参与者随机分组,两组分别在生活方式干预措施的基础上接受利拉鲁肽(3.0 mg)或安慰剂每日1次皮下注射。主要终点是第56周的体质指数(BMI,体重[kg]除以[身高{m }的平方])的标准差评分相对于基线的变化。



共计125例参与者被分配至利拉鲁肽组,126例被分配至安慰剂组。在第56周时BMI标准差评分相对于基线的变化方面,利拉鲁肽优于安慰剂(估计差异,-0.22;95%置信区间[CI],-0.37~-0.08;P=0.002)。利拉鲁肽组113例参与者中51例和安慰剂组105例参与者中20例的BMI降幅≥5%(估计百分比,43.3% vs. 18.7%),两组分别有33例和9例参与者的BMI降幅≥10%(估计百分比,26.1% vs. 8.1%)。利拉鲁肽组的BMI(估计差异,-4.64个百分点)和体重(估计差异,-4.50 kg[绝对变化]和-5.01个百分点[相对变化])降幅超过安慰剂组。停止治疗后,利拉鲁肽组的BMI标准差评分增幅超过安慰剂组(估计差异,0.15;95% CI,0.07~0.23)。利拉鲁肽组发生胃肠道不良事件(81/125[64.8%] vs. 46/126[36.5%])和导致停止试验治疗的不良事件(13[10.4%] vs. 0)的参与者人数超过安慰剂组。两组中发生严重不良事件的参与者均很少(3[2.4%] vs. 5[4.0%])。利拉鲁肽组发生了1例自杀,研究者判定与试验治疗不太可能相关。



在青少年肥胖症患者中,与安慰剂+生活方式干预措施相比,利拉鲁肽(3.0 mg)+生活方式干预措施使BMI标准差评分有显著较大幅下降(由诺和诺德公司资助,NN8022-4180在ClinicalTrials.gov注册号为NCT02918279)。
