Examining the Utility of GLP-1 Agonists as Neuroprotective Agents Through a Pilot Clinical Trial in High Risk Population With Neurocognitive Deficits and Obesity

This study is for people who have multiple sclerosis, acute leukemia (in remission), or long-COVID and a Body Mass Index over 27 and may struggle with cognitive issues such as remembering information, concentrating, or making decisions that affect everyday life. By doing this study, researchers hope to learn how liraglutide (Saxenda®), a weight loss drug, affects levels of a certain disease marker in the body called Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). Participation in this research will last about 21 weeks.
