Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
The reason we are doing this research is to get information about the ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon to learn if it is safe and if it works. We want to learn if older teenagers who are overweight will lose weight and if their other medical problems will get better. ORBERA™ is a special balloon approved by the FDA for overweight adults, and we would like to try using it for overweight teenagers.
