Obesity is a disease that leads to significant co-morbidities such as diabetes, fatty liver and cardiovascular disease, and significantly shortens a person's life expectancy and quality of life. There is a need for safer and more effective treatments for obesity, such as innovative drug delivery systems, vaccines, gut microbiota modification, and gene therapy. Novel delivery systems may include 3D printing technologies and the application of AI approaches. Novel drugs, such as combinations of gastrointestinal hormones and other agents, are being explored and, when available, are expected to lead to significant weight loss with fewer side effects.
