The natriuretic peptide system, the primary salt‐excreting system in humans, acts as an endogenous antagonist of the renin‐angiotensin‐aldosterone system.9 The primary circulating natriuretic peptides are atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and B‐type natriuretic peptide (BNP).10 ANP is produced primarily in the atria, while BNP is derived from both the atria and the ventricles.10, 11
However, both the original GRF (1-29) and the Mod GRF 1-29 required frequent dosages. So a new compound called CJC-1295 was created which was far more stable. This compound was made by adding Lysine – which is a non-peptide, and is also called Drug Affinity Complex or DAC. Since the original Mod GRF 1-29 does not contain DAC, it is named as CJC-1295 without DAC. However, the actual CJC-1295 is not only difficult, but also very expensive to produce. This is why it is not produced or used extensively. The Mod GRF 1-29 is far easier and cheaper to produce.
Endurobol (GW501516): Classified under a group of drugs called peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) agonists, Endurobol’s potential abuse in athletes is based on animal studies that showed it could improve endurance, increase fat metabolism, improve glucose uptake in skeletal muscle tissue, and increase in muscle gene expression. At the moment, there is insufficient evidence for these sport performance outcomes in humans. Human side-effects are currently also unknown. Endurobol is prohibited both in and out of competition under WADA’s Prohibited List.
Specifically, T α 1 has been shown to enhance the function of certain immune cells called T and dendritic cells. This is very important to anyone with a depressed immune system or suffering from an infection, as these white blood cells play pivotal roles in the body’s defense process. T cells, for example, come in two forms: killer and helper T cells. Killer T cells are responsible for hunting down and destroying our body’s own cells that are cancerous or infected with bacteria or viruses. Helper cells work with the other cells of the immune system to orchestrate and carry out appropriate immune responses.
Mean gross morphological and histopathological scores in Group 1 were significantly higher than those in Groups 2, 3, and 4 (p<0.05). Mean gross morphological and histopathological scores in Group 4 were significantly lower than those in Groups 2 and 3 (p<0.05). However, there are no differences between the mean gross morphological and histopathological scores of Groups 2 and 3 (Figures 4 and 5).
To obtain the best results from a fat loss program, and the most amount of fat loss from your peptide supplementation, you should be following a diet which is high in protein, moderate in healthy fats and low in carbohydrates, and be physically active. At the very least you should be doing some high-intensity lifting a couple of times a week alongside the implementation of cardio. You should also have your hormone levels balanced to optimise your metabolism.
Results: AOD 9604 had no effect on serum IGF-1 levels, which confirms the hypothesis that AOD 9604 does not act via IGF-1. Results of oral glucose tolerance test demonstrated that, in contrast with hGH, AOD 9604 has no negative effect on carbohydrate metabolism. There were no anti-AOD 9604 antibodies detected in any of the patients selected for antibody assay. In none of the studies did a withdrawal or serious adverse event occur related to intake of AOD 9604.
For example, if 100mcg more were to be administered after the first 100mcg (making the effective dose of 200mcg), then the second dose will achieve only 50% of what the first dose already did. A 100mcg more (making a total of 300mcg) will achieve only 25% more of the initial dose. This implies that, in order to increase the effect of the compound, only a little more of it can be successfully administered after the saturation dose.
Twelve WT and 11 β3-KO male mice aged between 12 and 14 wk were used in the chronic administration study. The animals were housed individually in cages under the conditions described above. The animals were divided into three groups: WT [control (saline; n = 3); AOD (250 μg/kg·d; n = 4) and hGH (1 mg/kg·d; n = 5)] and β3-KO [control (saline; n = 3); AOD (250 μg/kg·d; n = 4); and hGH (1 mg/kg·d; n = 4)]. On d 0, all animals were anesthetized with sodium pentobarbitone and a collection of blood (200 μl) was taken in heparinized tubes (Terumo, Somerset, NJ) for glycerol determination. The plasma was isolated by centrifugation and stored at −20 C until required for analysis. For the following 28 d, the animals were given a single ip dose of compound at 0800 h each morning. Their food intake and body weight were recorded every second day and results expressed as a change from d 0. On d 28, the animals were anesthetized with sodium pentobarbitone, blood was collected for plasma glycerol determination, and they were then killed by a lethal injection of sodium pentobarbitone to the heart (35 mg/kg). Their white epididymal and brown subscapular adipose tissues were collected and weighed.
AOD9604 is a peptide fragment of the C-terminus of human growth hormone (Tyr-hGH177-191). It is prepared by solid phase peptide synthesis and contains an additional tyrosine residue at the N-terminal end that stabilizes the peptide. Investigation on the secondary structure of AOD9604 showed similarities to the homologous region in the naturally occurring hGH molecule . Animal experiments confirmed the fat reducing potential of AOD9604, which seems to act directly on fat metabolism without influencing appetite. In genetically obese strains of rats and mice, AOD9604 was shown to affect body weight reduction, stimulation of lipolysis and inhibition of lipogenesis. Adverse effects, as seen in similar studies using intact hGH [18, 20, 21], were not observed with AOD9604 supplementation.
For example, studies have shown that people deficient in IGF-1 have an increased chance of dying from a heart attack. This is because IGF-1 prevents the death of heart cells and offers protection to heart cells when the cells are stressed, such as during a heart attack or long amount of time without oxygen. IGF-1 has a similar protective effect on brain cells.
The mean time (± SD) taken for recovery of normal ambulation was 25±2 days in Group 1, 15±3 days in Group 2, 16±2 days in Group 3, and 11±4 days in Group 4. The lameness period in Group 4 was significantly shorter than those in Groups 1, 2, and 3 (p<0.05). The lameness period in Group 1 was significantly longer than those in Groups 2 and 3 (p<0.05). However, there were no differences in the mean lameness period between Groups 2 and 3 (Figure 6).
Melanotan II is an analogue of alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone, the hormone responsible for pigmentation in skin and hair. This peptide has been shown not only to increase skin pigmentation, resulting in a substantially tanner skin tone, but also to stimulate fat loss and increase libido. Its aphrodisiac effects were so substantial that it was the basis for the development of another peptide designed exclusively to address erectile and sexual dysfunction—Bremelanotide PT 141.
This particular peptide offers therapeutic benefits similar to those of hGH. CJC 1295 is a growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) analogue. In other words, it is a molecule that serves the same purpose as does GHRH—the hormone that stimulates the anterior pituitary to release hGH. However, unlike GHRH, which has a half-life of only minutes after IV administration, CJC 1295 is able to remain active in the body for extended periods due to its ability to bind to a protein in the blood known as albumin and avoid degradation by various enzymes. CJC 1295 increases an important growth factor, IGF-1, in addition to hGH, leading to fat loss, lean muscle growth, and enhanced sleep.
You’ve already learned that sufficient protein intake (above 0.5g/lb of body weight) can assist with adequate IGF-1 and growth hormone production. Whey protein provides your body with a complete profile of necessary amino acids, including leucine. Leucine is an amino acid that promotes greater muscle protein synthesis and assists the body while gaining lean muscle mass and losing fat tissue simultaneously.

The male β3-KO mice and wild-type (WT) that were used in this study were offspring of animals provided by Dr. Bradford Howell (Beth Israel Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA). The animals were bred and housed in the central animal house facility (Monash University). For chronic studies, animals were housed in the Departmental Animal Facility (Biochemistry, Monash University). For acute energy expenditure studies, animals were transported to the Department of Medicine (University of Melbourne), acclimatized, and killed following experimentation. The WT andβ 3-KO mice genotype were verified by breeding records and RT-PCR analysis performed in the laboratory of Professor Roger Summers.
Collagen is also supposed to help with joint pain. Although I (luckily) don’t have chronic pain in my joints, my knees do flare up from time to time ever since I ran a half marathon a couple years ago. I also get some soreness in what feels like the bones in my legs a couple times a week, usually after a run or intense cardio session. If drinking collagen would ease this pain, then I was game.

The weight lost by the 1mg group was slightly more than that achieved by the world’s largest selling prescription obesity medication in similar trials over the same period, without its troublesome side effects. The trial results also demonstrated a small but consistent improvement in cholesterol profiles, and a reduction in the number of patients with impaired glucose tolerance.
Following amplification, PCR products were electrophoresed on 1.3% agarose gels and transferred onto Hybond N+ membranes (RPN 303B, Amersham Pharmacia Biotech) by Southern blotting in 0.4 M NaOH/1 M NaCl. The membranes were rinsed for 5 min in 0.5 M Tris-HCl (pH 7.5)/1 M NaCl and then in 0.3 M NaCl/30 mM sodium citrate, and air dried. Membranes were apposed directly to a phosphor imager screen for 18 h, and scanned using a Storm PhosphorImager and data quantitated using MCID software (Imaging Research, Inc., St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada). The β3-AR product bands were normalized against the β-actin control, averaged, and RNA isolated from treated animals was expressed against control animals.
Between 2001 and 2006 six human clinical trials with the hexadecapeptide AOD9604 have been performed, 893 healthy, in all but one study, clinically obese adults participated in these studies and are the basis of this safety evaluation. The details of the individual studies are listed in supplementary data. The first 3 studies were dose-escalating studies investigating the acute effects of various dosages and two application routes (i.v. and oral) in healthy or obese male subjects. These single dose studies were followed by a 7-day multiple dose study (METAOD004) as well as two long-term clinical trials (METAOD005 and METAOD006) where the safety and tolerability of chronic oral treatment with AOD9604 was investigated.
One proposed mechanism for reduced natriuretic peptide concentrations in obesity is the relative abundance of natriuretic peptide clearance receptors (NPR‐C) in adipose tissue.13, 22 Elevated insulin has also been linked to increased expression of NPR‐C in obese subjects.23 On the other hand, plasma Nt‐proANP and Nt‐proBNP levels are reduced in obesity to a comparable degree as the mature peptides. Because the pro‐peptides are not known to bind to NPR‐C, impaired synthesis or secretion likely plays a role in obesity.
Ipamorelin is a pentapeptide, meaning that it is composed of five amino acids, that mimics the body’s natural GH release. Ipamorelin is a growth hormone releasing peptide (GHRP) and analogue of the hormone Ghrelin. It induces GH release and increases the number of somatarophs(cells responsible for GH release) in a GH pulse by suppressing somatostatin.

Acromegaly is characterized by an excessive amount of articular cartilage in joints caused by excess GH secretion . The tremendously thick articular cartilage in acromegaly can be explained by the local production of IGF-1 in cartilage cells through GH receptors [9,18]. Long-term treatment with GH might induce hypertrophy of the cartilage and changes in the joint geometry because of altered subchondral bone structures. Long-term treatment with GH by local injections may also be associated with various risks, including glucose intolerance, insulin resistance, diabetes, cancer, edema, and hypertension [26–29]. AOD9604 is not an agonist with a high affinity to the GH receptor and does not stimulate the production of IGF-1. Therefore, AOD9604 may be safer than human recombinant GH for the long-term treatment of OA.
