Overview

This trial is active, not recruiting.

Condition obesity
Treatment adults presenting for surgery in the neck area
Sponsor Translational Research Institute for Metabolism and Diabetes, Florida
Start date November 2014
End date September 2019
Trial size 40 participants
Trial identifier NCT02274805, TRIMD FH 644456

Summary

The purpose of the study is to gather tissue (from the neck region), specimens (blood and urine) and medical record data from many patients and store them in one place so that scientists have the information they need to conduct research and learn about new ways to predict, identify and treat illness, specifically those related to obesity and diabetes.
