I don't know if anyone would be interested in this, but it has piqued my interest, although I haven't decided whether or not to participate. I have no idea if you are compensated, or what the drug is. I haven't heard anything about it. Stroll down the page and you'll find phone numbers for quite a few different states.

Studies do typically compensate, but I don't see the compensation for any of these studies listed. There's also a Leptin study that sounds quite promising, but you have to stay in the hospital for 2 months for that one I would look into this other one, but apparently, I'm too fat for the obesity study (it says your BMI can't be over 43, and mine is like 46 or something, so I would actually have to lose weight to be in this obesity study ).
