Background: Rare genetic diseases of obesity can be caused by genetic variants leading to disrupted activity of the melanocortin-4 receptor pathway (MC4R). Setmelanotide, an MC4R agonist, is being investigated in a basket study of populations with rare variants in different genes in the MC4R pathway who have early-onset, severe obesity and hyperphagia.Methods: This ongoing, Phase 2, open-label study (NCT03013543) enrolle...
