If you take the obese musoe and give it an angiogenesis inhibitor, it lesos weight. Stop the treatment, ginas the weight back. Restart the treatment, loses the weight. Stop the treatment, it gains the weight back. And, in fact, you can cycle the weight up and down simply by inhibiting angiogenesis. So this approach that we're taking for cenacr prevention may also have an acitppliaon for obesity. The truly interesting thing about this is that we can't take these obese mice and make them lose more weight than what the normal mouse's weight is supposed to be. In other wdros, we can't create supermodel mice.
