Brief Summary:

The subjects and evaluating investigator will be blinded to the treatment, thus maintaining double-blind status. By nature of the varying volumes of injection, the treating investigator will be unblinded to the treatment. A series of 3 injection sessions will be performed spaced 4 weeks apart.

Canfield Vectra 3D imaging will be performed at baseline and at each follow up visit. Follow up visits will be performed 3 and 5 days after each injection session to assess for side effect and tolerability profile. After the final injection session, additional follow up visits will be performed at days 90 and 180 to assess for efficacy. Subject weight will be recorded at baseline and at end of study.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Fat Reduction Drug: Sodium Deoxycholate Drug: Triamcinolone Phase 4

Detailed Description:

This is a Single-site randomized, double-blind comparison trial of Kybella injections with or without triamcinolone acetate for the reduction of submental fat. 20 subjects will be enrolled into the trial. Of these 20 subjects, 5 will be randomized to receive Kybella injections alone whereas 15 will receive Kybella plus triamcinolone acetate in the following way:

  1. Kybella alone: 2 mg/cm2 of Kybella will be delivered in up to 50 injections spaced 1.0 cm apart at 0.2 mL/injection for a total dose of up to 100 mg of sodium deoxycholate.
  2. Kybella plus triamcinolone: 0.2 mL of 2 mg/cm2 of Kybella will be mixed with 0.05 mL of 40 mg/mL of triamcinolone acetate and then delivered in up to 50 injections spaced 1.0 cm apart at 0.25 mL/injection for a total dose of up to 100 mg of sodium deoxycholate using a 30 gauge (or smaller) 0.5-inch needle.

The treatment area will be bounded superiorly by a line 1 cm inferior to the mandibular margin, laterally by the sternocleidomastoid muscles, and inferiorly by the hyoid bone. The subjects and evaluating investigator will be blinded to the treatment, thus maintaining double-blind status. By nature of the varying volumes of injection, the treating investigator will be unblinded to the treatment. A series of 3 injection sessions will be performed spaced 4 weeks apart.

Canfield Vectra 3D imaging will be performed at baseline and at each follow up visit. Follow up visits will be performed 3 and 5 days after each injection session to assess for side effect and tolerability profile. After the final injection session, additional follow up visits will be performed at days 90 and 180 to assess for efficacy. Subject weight will be recorded at baseline and at end of study.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: without triamcinolone
sodium Deoxycholate without triamcinolone
Drug: Sodium Deoxycholate
Other Name: Kybella

Active Comparator: with triamcinolone
sodium Deoxycholate with triamcinolone
Drug: Sodium Deoxycholate
Other Name: Kybella

Drug: Triamcinolone
Triamcinolone 40mg/ml




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of Efficacy of Kybella with Triamcinolone in the Reduction of Submental Fat [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]
    evaluate the efficacy associated with Kybella injections for the reduction of fat of the upper neck in the treatment of submental fat with and without added triamcinolone acetonide. An evaluator blinded to the study will grade the level of improvement of the submental fat using the Clinician Graded Submental Fat Rating Scale.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of Safety of Kybella with Triamcinolone for Reduction of Submental Fat [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Differences in rates of edema, erythema, tenderness, and erosion/ulceration, based on blinded evaluator assessment, will be compared between subjects treated with Kybella with and without triamcinolone
