Obesity is arguably the most pressing public health issue in the United States. The prevalence of obesity is extremely high, and its chronic progression is associated with type 2 diabetes and adverse cardiovascular health. Because lifestyle modifications are hard to maintain and metabolic surgery is inaccessible for many obese patients, there is considerable market opportunity for prescription weight-loss agents. Following a long period with a desperate lack of treatment options, a comparative rush of new treatment options has emerged since 2012. As drug therapies struggle to achieve the optimal balance between efficacy, safety, and affordability, gaining traction in the market and the confidence of physicians has been challenging.
