The American Journal of Managed Care

Obesity Treatment

The American Journal of Managed Care® is issuing a call for papers on obesity treatment. These papers, in addition to the journal’s regular content, will be published throughout upcoming issues of the journal.

Obesity is a serious, progressive, chronic disease associated with a spectrum of complications and poor outcomes. Until recently, FDA-approved medications for the long-term treatment of obesity in the general adult population had not demonstrated the ability to achieve guideline-recommended levels of body weight loss. The recent introduction of highly effective anti-obesity medications has provoked a sea change in the treatment of obesity, with new guidelines now recommending use of these novel therapies for the long-term treatment of obesity. However, these clinical advances also carry questions of how to ensure patients can access and pay for these therapies.
