Study Summary

This trial looks at how well a drug works and its safety in people with liver problems vs. healthy people.

Who is the study for?
This study is for people with different levels of liver disease, including fatty liver and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Participants will either have impaired liver function or be healthy volunteers for comparison.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial is testing Efinopegdutide to see how the drug behaves in the body (its pharmacokinetics) when given to people with varying degrees of liver health compared to those who are healthy.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While specific side effects aren't listed, the trial will monitor how safe and tolerable Efinopegdutide is, which means they'll look out for any negative reactions participants might have.

"Affirmative. According to the information published on clinicaltrials.gov, this research initiative that was first shared on November 22nd 2023 is still actively seeking participants. Specifically, 24 individuals are required from a single medical centre for enrolment in the trial."

Answered by AI

Who would be an optimal candidate for this research program?

"24 participants are sought for this trial, and the eligibility criteria prescribes that candidates must possess non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and be within 18 to 75 years of age."

Answered by AI

Does this clinical research include participants aged fifty or older?

"The age range for those that can enter this clinical trial runs from 18 to 75 years old. For individuals below the age of consent or above retirement, there are 33 and 364 separate trials respectively."

Answered by AI

Has the FDA endorsed Efinopegdutide for use in Healthy-Matched Control Group?

"Our team at Power assessed Efinopegdutide's safety in the Healthy-Matched Control Group to be a score of 1 due to this being Phase 1, meaning there is minimal evidence backing both its efficacy and security."
