Participants needed for study of medicine for binge eaters

March 05, 2009

Binge eating is a growing problem, affecting both men and women. It threatens successful weight loss and is linked to weight regain and severe obesity. Adult men and women who binge eat at 3 or more times a week and are currently under treatment for their binge eating are needed for a Penn State study. The purpose of the study is to test whether a new drug can help reduce food craving and binge eating. If you are interested in this study or other studies being done at Penn State on obesity and diabetes contact Kathy Peters, MS at (800) 393-0782 or email
