A Boston company named Compellis Pharmaceuticals said that it obtained an initial patent for a nasal spray that aims to treat obesity by blocking the olfactory activity in the nose, Boston.com reported Wednesday Dec. 6.
According to the report, the product is so made because the company believes when your sense of smell and taste is blocked, you do not crave for the foods that would otherwise drive you crazy.
The product CP404 works well in animal models. The company hopes to do human trials next year.
