Scientists seek volunteers to trial drug to combat obesity

Researchers are looking for volunteers to trial a revolutionary new drug to combat obesity. The capsule has been laboratory-tested on human tissue for more than four years by scientists at Queen Mary University of London, UK, in a project part-funded by the charity Bowel & Cancer Research. The capsule, packed with a mix of natural oils, is believed to ‘trick’ the gut into thinking it’s full and suppresses appetite. Researchers believe it could reduce the need for bariatric surgery and help solve the obesity crisis.
