The purpose of this study is to test whether the study medication given as an injection under the skin (subcutaneous) is safe at different dose levels and to find out what effects, good or bad, has on you. The study medication is an antibody (a type of protein) that is made to recognize a receptor on adipose (fat) tissue that may help reduce your resistance to insulin (a hormone your body makes to help you use sugar) as well as increase the amount of energy you release and decrease the number of fat cells you store.
