Abstract

The gut hormone PYY 3–36 reduces food intake in humans and exhibits at least additive efficacy in combination with GLP-1. However, the utility of PYY analogs as anti-obesity agents has been severely limited by emesis and rapid proteolysis, a profile similarly observed with native PYY 3–36 in obese rhesus macaques. Here, we found that antibody conjugation of a cyclized PYY 3–36 analog achieved high NPY2R selectivity, unprecedented in vivo stability, and gradual infusion-like exposure. These properties permitted profound reduction of food intake when administered to macaques for 23 days without a single emetic event in any animal. Co-administration with the GLP-1 receptor agonist liraglutide for an additional 5 days further reduced food intake with only one animal experiencing a single bout of emesis. This antibody-conjugated PYY analog therefore may enable the long-sought potential of GLP-1/PYY-based combination treatment to achieve robust, well-tolerated weight reduction in obese patients.
