The clinical trial will look at how well the therapy can reduce blood sugar levels and body weight in people who are overweight and have Type 2 diabetes.
The investigational therapy and clinical trial medical check-ups are free of charge, and travel costs will be reimbursed.

To be eligible, participants also need to be overweight with a BMI of over 30, be able to visit their local participating medical clinic approximately 10 times over 5 months, and are aged from 18-65.
