Gelesis (Boston) recently announced that it has received FDA clearance for its Plenity weight management prescription drug.

The drug is a weight management aid for adults who have a body mass index of 25-40 kg/m2 and is supposed to be used with diet and exercise. It can be used in people with and without comorbidities like hypertension, type 2 diabetes or dyslipidemia. The company says that there is no restriction on how long the drug can be used in weight management.

“This FDA clearance is a major milestone for the Gelesis team and our technology, and we are thrilled to be able to bring this new prescription product to the millions of people looking for a safe, validated and convenient treatment option to manage their weight without surgery or stimulants,” Yishai Zohar, founder and CEO of Gelesis, said in a press release. “With Plenity, Gelesis is introducing a completely new approach with a unique mechanism of action to aid in weight management, with efficacy and safety supported by positive data from large clinical studies.”
