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.
Our peptide therapies are also known as secretagogues – a substance that promotes secretion. These amino acid chains communicate with the body to produce or release growth hormone. The increased volume of human growth hormone produced by the pituitary gland causes an increase in the production of Insulin-Like Grow Factor-1 (IGF-1) by the liver and results in several health benefits such as:
But ever since the 1970’s, scientists have observed that although we produce substantial amounts of both IGF-1 and human growth hormone (HGH) in childhood, these hormones decrease drastically by the time we reach old age. They also noticed that IGF-1 could possibly be manipulated to extend life and to prolong the deteriorating effects of aging (you can read the research here).
Obesity is the Western World’s most common health problem, and has reached epidemic proportions according to the World Health Organisation. More than 20% of the adult population in developed countries are obese – more than 300 million adults worldwide. In addition, more than 50% of adults in developed countries are overweight. Obesity is associated with other health-related problems such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
In 2010, the company heard word that bodybuilders were importing knock-off versions of the patent-protected peptide from China, and started licensing the manufacturing rights out to other companies in an attempt to compete, as this was determined to be a better course of action than attempting to sue the Chinese company for patent breach (7, 8). Desperate to recoup this investment, they invested a small additional amount into developing a technology that allowed the peptide to be absorbed through the skin, in collaboration with a company called Phosphagenics (4). The peptide was then licensed for use in BodyShaper, an anti-cellulite cream. Phosphagenics later dropped AOD9604 from BodyShaper, citing excessive expense and ineffectiveness (3).

The increase in GH secretion due to IPAMORELIN (and other GHRP) leads to an increase in IGF-1 (thought to be the anabolic mechanism of GH). As we get older GH and subsequently IGF-1 decrease substantially. This decline is thought to be one of the major causes of the ageing process. By increasing these levels again there is increased collagen synthesis, promotion of lean muscle mass, bone strength, improved healing capability, improved sleep cycle, increased energy, repair and regeneration of internal organs, strengthening of joints/cartilage/connective tissue, and anti ageing effects on the skin.
Finally, the hexadecapeptide AOD9604 did not induce allergenic reactions when consumed over 24 weeks. Blood of patients was analyzed for the presence of anti-AOD9604 antibody formation at various times and at the end of the studies (latest time point after 24 weeks). In none of the performed studies, at no time, were anti-AOD9604 antibodies detected in serum collected from any subjects in any treatment group.
There are thousands of weight loss programs to choose from. A Google search for how to lose weight returns over 97 million results. With so much information out there, it’s easy to get overwhelmed or confused. Especially since most of the information you come across on weight loss is completely false. There are gimmicks and bad advice that lead desperate dieters down the wrong path, and the only measurable result is the decrease in the weight of your wallet!
The prescription form of IGF-1 most often injected is “mecasermin”, which goes by the trade name Increlex. Manufactured using recombinant DNA technology, mecasermin is clinically used to treat IGF-1 deficiency and stunted growth. It is also prescribed to patients who have developed antibody resistance to normal growth hormone therapy. Increlex is actually identical to natural IGF-1, meaning that it has the identical 70 amino acid sequence of IGF-1 that the body produces. In other words, it’s not some kind of growth hormone “precursor”. It’s just straight up IGF-1.
Without side effects with an appropriate assay, this peptide contributes to fat loss and muscle gain. CJC-1295 DAC could interest those wishing to rarely perform injections due to a stable rate over time rather than intermittent dosages, that provides the maximum necessary for optimal effect. Its use combined with a GHRP is interesting but not as much as with MOD-GRF whose peaks of free GHRH peptides would be coordinated with the GHRP associated.
Diets on point! 6 600 calorie meals totaling 200-300g protein, 50-150g carbs and almost NO fat. I do get a little fat in my diet from flax, trail mix and what not but all my food is natural, whole and as close to organic as I can get.. TONS of raw veggies. NO cardio atm, Ive got some bad injuries and issues developed from my last cycle so I take it pretty easy LOL. Maybe an hour on the bicycle 1-2x/wk.. Tough job tho so at work 8hrs a day working on diesel pile hammers keeps my heart rate pretty high all day
It is not advisable to generalize our results for the OA in a rabbit model because of the small sample size of this study. Further studies with larger sample sizes and longer follow-ups are necessary to establish the validity of our results. Moreover, the different effects caused by varying intra-articular dosages, formulations, and injection intervals need to be assessed.
Subjects were excluded if they had any of the following: history of myocardial infarction, heart failure, or left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction <50%, greater than mild valvular stenosis or regurgitation or any regional wall motion abnormalities by cardiac imaging, chronic renal failure or serum creatinine ≥3.0 mg/dL, atrial fibrillation, diabetes mellitus requiring insulin therapy, systolic blood pressure ≥170 mm Hg or diastolic blood pressure ≥100 mm Hg at the most recent weight center visit, a history of current loop or thiazide diuretic use, a history of obstructive lung disease, or thyroid dysfunction. Female subjects who were pregnant or planned to become pregnant within 6 months were also excluded. The Partners Human Research Committee approved the protocol. All subjects provided informed consent.
People who are serious about losing weight or improving physical performance may choose to use some of the controversial peptides. They are generally sold for research purposes, but many injectable forms of peptides have been used by athletes to increase the production of their body’s HGH to achieve increased lean body mass, decreased body fat, and improved recovery time after workouts. Peptides used for these purposes include:
However, I still had wrinkles on my forehead and the starting lines of crow’s feet around my eyes. These are two trouble areas I’m always focused on, so I was hoping drinking collagen every day would help smooth these out. Although I didn’t see any noticeable difference in terms of skin elasticity and my wrinkles, I only did the challenge for two weeks. I’m going to keep drinking collagen every morning and hope it will help my fine lines disappear. If anything, there are other positive health benefits I found from taking collagen that I’ll definitely make this part of my daily routine.
In a statement to Fairfax Media on Thursday, Calzada Ltd said: ''The US generally recognised as safe 'GRAS' status is being explored as another viable commercial path for the company to pursue to potentially derive early revenue. Whilst AOD-9604 was not successful in human trials aimed at obesity, the Company believes there is sufficient efficacy data to enable a potential food, drink or dietary supplement product to be successfully marketed in the US.''
Another way GH helps with fat loss is that it maintains blood glucose levels by inhibiting glucose uptake into peripheral cells, decreasing glucose oxidation for energy in the cells, and therefore increasing glucose production in cells from fat and amino acids (gluconeogenesis) (Copeland 1994, Ho 1996). The free fatty acids in the blood from lipolysis also partially block the insulin receptors on cell membranes, decreasing the effectiveness of insulin in triggering the removal of glucose from the blood, causing insulin resistance, or decreased insulin sensitivity. These all result in fat loss, especially from hard to move intra-abdominal fat stores (Johannsson 1997).
In summary, we found that weight loss in obese individuals undergoing gastric bypass surgery is associated with higher natriuretic peptide concentrations across a range of loading conditions. This observation is consistent with a higher “set point” of natriuretic peptide levels after weight loss. That these findings are accompanied by improvements in blood pressure, heart rate and echocardiographic diastolic function provides persuasive evidence that the increase in natriuretic peptides with weight loss is “primary” and not secondary to alterations in cardiac structure or function.
The human growth hormone (hGH) is a 191-amino acid long, single-chain polypeptide secreted by the pituitary gland under the regulation of the hypothalamus. It regulates a variety of biological processes in various tissues. When binding to the hGH-receptor it activates one of various signaling cascades, depending on the tissue. In the liver hGH induces the secretion of Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1). IGF-1 can stimulate growth in almost every tissue in the body, including skeletal muscle, cartilage, bone, liver, kidney, nerves etc. .
Tβ4 has been used at our clinic with a great deal of success in patients suffering from Lyme disease or other infectious and/or inflammatory conditions. Tβ4 is very well tolerated and has not been found to cause any significant side effects. It can be taken on its own or in conjunction with an existing therapy, making it a versatile and valuable drug.
There is the potential for the side effects associated with use of growth hormone when growth hormone secretagogues are used, particularly if the use is not under medical supervision. There are limited data on the safety of intravenous and subcutaneous use of AOD-9604 and on the long-term oral use of AOD-9604 in doses in excess of those used in clinical trials.
This is cutting edge science and i freely admit is a PE...you could argue whey, bcaa or even intermittent fasting does the same thing, just not as refined hence the argument and confusion is that the substance is grey because the peptide stimulates natural GH which not even wada or asada know how to pidgeon hole it....its mostly unclassified...this is why we will be just fine... are you starting to see the glaring holes in your facts yet?
Best deal I found searching around. I plan to read up on datbtrue's forum once I get accepted. Right now I'm thinking wake up, and inject 500mcg, shower, hit the gym, leave do cardio, then eat. At night before bed inject another 500mcg. Not set in stone yet as I need to read up more, but this is what I'm thinking. Currently running cjc 1295 no dac, ghrp-2, and igf-1 LR3, Hup-a, and green tea extract.
Increasing HGH release levels in your body naturally. It sounds too good to be true, but what if you could achieve just that by using a supplement? Using Ipamorelin alongside your exercise and diet regimen is going to help you achieve said goal. No two users are alike. For athletes or those who workout religiously, you might experience greater results than an individual who is overweight and just getting back into the gym after 10 years. So, take it with a grain of salt when detailing the results below. Dosage, your body composition, and other factors will play a role in the results you can expect to see when you incorporate Ipamorelin.
In addition, scientists have observed that those who supplemented with IGF-1 experienced a preponderance of new brain cell growth and new muscle mass and new studies confirmed this to be true, even among individuals with both brain damage and muscle-wasting sarcopenia. Furthermore, research studies have found IGF-1 to increase feelings of youthfulness, improve well-being, and even to alleviate depression.
In this study, plasma glycerol was also assayed as a measure of lipolytic rate. As shown in Fig. 5C, both AOD9604 and hGH increased glycerol levels following treatment in the WT mice, indicative of enhanced lipolysis. In the β3-KO mouse, however, no effect was observed with AOD9604. A significant increase in plasma glycerol from controls was observed following hGH treatment, but this was markedly less than that observed in the WT mouse. These data indicate the importance of β3-AR in the lipolytic response to AOD9604 in these animals and the necessity of the receptor for the chronic effectiveness of AOD9604 and hGH on fat reduction.
The original GRF (1-29) has a half-life of about 30 minutes. Half-life means the time within which half of the hormone administered will be destroyed within the body. This short half-life is due to the fact that the compound is highly unstable and breaks down soon. To increase its stability and to make it last longer, it was modified by adding 4 amino acids in its structure. This gave it the name Modified GRF (1-29) or Mod GRF 1-29. It was originally invented by DatBtrue. The portion of the molecule that actually stimulates the growth hormone secretion is found in the chain of 29 amino acids, so it is named GRF (1-29). This chemical also produces slow-wave sleep.
When the AFL Peptides scandal hit, Calzada was forced to clarify the facts about AOD9604, and put out a cleverly worded press statement aimed at potential investors, concentrating on the fact that AOD9604 had been proven safe in large scale clinical trials (neglecting to mention a lack of effectiveness) and spoke of the success of AOD9604 on stimulating bone growth, and on cartilage and muscle cell repair in in-vitro trials (2,4). The black market uses for this peptide in muscle repair and treatment of obesity were also mentioned in the release, and it is clear through media reports on this scandal that Calzada gained traction from the profile boost (8).
AOD9604 is a peptide fragment (hGH Fragment 177-191) of the C-terminus of Human Growth Hormone to which a tyrosine is added at the N-terminal end. Studies have suggested that AOD9604 is more effective than its predecessor AOD9401 in its ability to stimulate lipolytic (fat burning) and anti-lipogenic activity. Like Growth Hormone, AOD9604 stimulates lipolysis (the breakdown or destruction of fat) and inhibits lipogenesis (prevents the transformation of fatty food materials into body fat) both in laboratory testing and in animals and humans. Recent clinical research studies have shown that AOD9604 did show a reduction of body fat in the mid abdominal area in both obese, over-weight, and average built people.
It's really tough to tell. It has properties that suggest it might be, but the evidence simply doesn't exist to make any definitive claims. AOD9604 was designed as a modified fragment of growth hormone. The original intention was to create a drug that has the effect on adipose (fat) cells of growth hormone, without the other effects. This sort of drug development is littered with failures, because replicating a sequence of amino acids is not the same as replicating a protein and its effects. It's not just the chemical composition of a protein that determines how it interacts with other molecules (especially endocrine receptors, like those that growth hormone acts on), but also how that protein folds. There's only really one way to tell what your compound actually does, and that's to try it out.
The analysis of the AE was divided into the run-in phase and the treatment phase. During the run-in placebo treatment phase 70% of subjects experienced at least one AE, the incidence of which was similar across treatment groups (range 64.6% to 79.6%); the body system organ classes with the highest incidences (> 10%) of events were the nervous system (32.2%; mainly headache, 30.4%), gastrointestinal system (19.4%) (mainly diarrhea unspecified, 5.5%) and infections and infestations (16.6%, mainly viral infections, 3.5%).
Resting plasma concentrations of mature BNP and Nt‐proBNP were 14±3 pg/mL and 42±9 pg/mL before gastric bypass surgery and increased to 32±5 pg/mL and 107±20 pg/mL (increased by 50% and 31%), respectively (P=0.0009 and 0.0001) after the surgery. Circulating BNP and Nt‐proBNP concentrations during saline infusion were also higher after surgery compared with before surgery (Figures 2A and 2B; P<0.0001). The saline infusion itself was not associated with an increase in BNP or Nt‐proBNP levels at either visit (P=0.65 and 0.60, respectively).
Paracetamol is distinct from non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It is a para-acetylaminophenol with both analgesic and antipyretic properties. Originally synthesized in the 1880s and first released for use on prescription in 1955 in the USA and on 1956 in UK. It has been available in most countries, without prescription, for many years. Recent data suggests it acts via a central mechanism, whereby it is deacetylated to 4-aminophenyl and then conjugated with arachidonic acid to form N-arachidonoylphenylamine which is an exogenous cannabinoid (Hogestatt ED et al. 2005).
Actually, it's under S0 because it is not approved for human use by any regulating authority anywhere. The S2 category is the one relating to mimicking effects of other compounds or GH. But you were right, the OP is fundamentally incorrect. The real reasons that Dank chose this compound to administer to Essendon players is still a mystery but we can be certain it wasn't paid for or administered for the fun of it.
Figure 2A shows that neither hGH nor AOD9604 had any significant effect on the weight of epididymal adipose tissue in the lean mice. However, in the ob/ob mice, AOD9604 induced a 28% decrease in epididymal adipose tissue mass, and hGH induced a 40% reduction in epididymal adipose tissue mass (P < 0.05). Brown adipose tissue weights were also measured (Fig. 2B). In this tissue, both AOD9604 and hGH induced a reduction in the weight of brown adipose tissue in both the lean and ob/ob mice.
AOD is a peptide 15 amino acids long which mimics a small portion of the growth hormone that has the fat reducing effects (increases fat metabolism). It works by mimicking the way natural growth hormone regulates fat metabolism but without the adverse effects on blood sugar and growth that is seen if unmodified growth hormone is given. It stimulates lipolysis (break down of fat) and inhibits lipogenesis (non fat food being stored in the body as fat).
The discovery of the role of Tβ4 in the process of immune regulation has lead to its use as a valuable therapeutic agent. Tβ4 has been used in the treatment of HIV, AIDS, Influenza, colds, and various infections. It has been utilized in the management of various inflammatory conditions, as well as part of treatment following heart attack due to its cardio and neuroprotective effects.
Touting their discovery as “a great step forward in weight loss history,” the panel were quick to offer up their hard earned cash to back the entrepreneurial pair. “We were shocked. The most we were hoping for was some advice…we weren’t even sure that we would manage to get any investors,” explained Samantha. After outstanding offers from each panel member, the sisters burst into tears.
Comparing everything else is hard due to branding... don't want to start going into branding for obvious reasons. GH is incredible for fatloss but some brands add so much water it is hard to see the results to begin with. But due to the high serum and igf-1 from gh excellent results are to be had. Many factors come into play though which I am sure your well aware of. I think the ghrp's (2 and 6 for example) are excellent for fatloss if you keep up with the 4 daily injections in your research. Otherwise they are nowhere as effective due to the short peak times... so one must be organized and disciplined to get the full benefits.
