Fractyl™- REVITA 2 Trial
Fractyl is focused on addressing insulin resistance to improve the health of people with some of the most common metabolic diseases, including type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Fractyl has developed the REVITA™ duodenal mucosal resurfacing (DMR) system that involves a trans-oral, incision-free procedure to safely alter the mucosa of the small intestine and help improve how the body absorbs and processes nutrients from the diet.
We are enrolling patients in a randomized control trial who are on at least one oral medication but not yet on insulin. Learn more here: http://revitatrial.com/
