PRAMLINTIDE

Symlin (pramlintide) at 120 mcg three times per day causes maximum weight loss

A dose of 120 mcg of Symlin (pramlintide) injected three times per day was as effective at causing weight loss as doses two and three times this large (240 mcg and 360 mcg) injected three times per day according to a new study.

"All three three-times-daily doses [of Symlin (pramlintide)] were effective over [one year], with 240 mcg and 360 mcg [three times per day] providing little additional benefit over 120 mcg [three times per day]," noted the authors of a new study testing Symlin (pramlintide) for weight loss.

PRAMLINTIDE

Symlin (pramlintide) at 360 mcg twice a day caused more weight loss than lower doses

When Symlin (pramlintide) was injected twice a day instead of three times per day, 360 mcg caused more weight loss than 240 mcg or 120 mcg according to a new study.

When given twice a day, injections were given before breakfast and dinner. The lunch dose was skipped.

"In contrast to three-times-daily dosing regimens, a clear dose-response relationship was evident among twice-daily regimens, whereby 120 [mcg twice a day] was suboptimal and 360 [mcg twice a day] elicited weight loss of a magnitude similar to the three-times-daily regimens," the authors of a new study noted.

"Thus, at higher doses, twice-daily dosing appears to be a feasible pramlintide regimen for weight loss."

Comment: In other words, 120 mcg three times per day causes as much weight loss as higher doses, however, if a patient only prefers to give themselves injections twice a day instead of three times per day, then giving 360 mcg twice a day also works. Read the entire article | Email this article

PRAMLINTIDE PLUS LEPTIN

Pramlintide plus leptin causes weight loss of 12.7% vs 8.4% with pramlintide and 8.2% with leptin

Obese people given two experimental drugs, pramlintide plus leptin, caused an average weight loss of 12.7 percent versus 8.4 percent in those given only pramlintide, and 8.2 percent in those only given leptin according to a study by Amylin Pharmaceuticals in San Diego, California, the company who is developing the drugs. The drugs were injected subcutaneously ( under the skin ) three times a day. The company suggests that pramlintide may help to restore leptin sensitivity which is diminished in obese people.
