Biochem/physiol Actions

Orlistat impairs intestinal fat absorption and is effective in weight management. It is regarded as a safe drug for treating obesity. It delays the progression of type 2 diabetes mellitus especially in obese and improves glycemic parameters. Long term usage of orlistat results in improved weight reduction and it may not contribute in colorectal carcinogenesis.
Orlistat, used in obesity research, is a pancreatic lipase inhibitor that acts locally in the gastrointestinal tract to inhibit lipase.
