A Study of Retatrutide (LY3437943) in Participants Who Have Obesity or Overweight (TRIUMPH-1)

A Master Protocol to Investigate the Efficacy and Safety of LY3437943 Once Weekly in Participants Without Type 2 Diabetes Who Have Obesity or Overweight: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial (TRIUMPH-1)
medical condition:
Obesity | Overweight | Chronic Knee Pain | Knee Osteoarthritis | Obstructive Sleep Apnea


The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of retatrutide in participants who have obesity or overweight (J1I-MC-GZBJ master protocol) including subsets of participants who have knee osteoarthritis (OA) (J1I-MC-GOA1) or who have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) (J1I-MC-GSA1). This study will last about 89 weeks and will include up to 24 visits.
