Canker sore drug helps mice lose weight without diet, exercise

(Could it help humans, too?)

(CNN) -- A relatively obscure drug used to treat mouth sores has made obese mice thin -- and the mice didn't have to eat less or exercise more, according to a study at the University of Michigan.

Doctors at the university will begin studies in human beings later this year. Hopes are high, even though many drugs that work in mice do not work in humans....

Maybe the drug doesn't work and the mice lost weight because their canker sores made eating too painful.
