CARDIOVASCULAR RISK + OBESITY
Before a new medicine can be prescribed by doctors, it must be tested. This is to see if it is safe and if it works as we expect it to. This study investigates if a medicine called semaglutide has an effect on reducing the risk of cardiovascular (CV) events (e.g. heart attack and stroke). Semaglutide is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat patients with type 2 diabetes, however its use in individuals with other conditions is investigational.
