Summary

This is a multicenter, un-blinded, open label, pivotal supplemental study to G130163 intended to evaluate the safety and efficacy of treating previous sham subjects in the Essential pivotal trial (IDE#G130163) with the active treatment (the placement of g-Cath EZ suture anchors along with diet and exercise). Compliant sham subjects (those who attended all primary IDE follow-up visits AND who continue to meet eligibility criteria as described in this protocol) will be offered this active treatment after their 12 month unblinding visit in the Essential pivotal trial.

Additional Information

Official title A Supplemental Open Label Multicenter Sham Cross-over Clinical Trial Using an Endoscopic Suturing Device (g-Cath EZ™ Suture Anchor Delivery Catheter) For Primary Weight Loss Essential Study (IDE G130163) Crossover Study
Principal investigator Tom Lavin, MD
Description This is a multicenter, un-blinded, open label, pivotal supplemental study to G130163 intended to evaluate the safety and efficacy of treating previous sham subjects in the Essential pivotal trial (IDE#G130163) with the active treatment (the placement of g-Cath EZ suture anchors along with diet and exercise). Compliant sham subjects (those who attended all primary IDE follow-up visits AND who continue to meet eligibility criteria as described in this protocol) will be offered this active treatment after their 12 month unblinding visit in the Essential pivotal trial. This supplemental study will consist of up to an 8 week screening period after each subject's unblinding visit, an enrollment (active treatment) day, and a 12-month follow-up period. All sham subjects in the Essential Trial (total quantity of one hundred eleven (111) subjects) are planned for enrollment, but the total quantity of sham subjects provided the active treatment will depend on the number of subjects who are compliant. The active treatment will be provided by the original investigator for that subject at the same investigational center (one of the original 11) used in the Essential trial. Collection of data will be accomplished by utilizing independent nutritionists/clinical research nurses to administer the diet/exercise plan and collect weight loss efficacy assessments. Efficacy assessments will also include changes in select co-morbidities, quality of life assessments, and changes in hunger and satiety, among others. Safety assessments include subject and investigator reported adverse events, physician follow-up assessments, and blood pressure measurements.
