Meanwhile, more Phase II clinical studies are planned for the next 12 months including a study examining the efficacy of oral administration, which has been shown to be effective in laboratory animals. This will be followed by a weight loss study. Confirmation of the age-effect will also be sought. Metabolic aims to start a two-year Phase III studies program in 2003, which would not place final FDA approval before 2005.
In lean animals, neither AOD9604 nor hGH had any effect on epididymal white adipose tissue mass or expression ofβ 3-AR RNA, indicating that in lean animals, this fat tissue is not a major target for these drugs in this study. In contrast, the mass of BAT in lean animals was reduced by both hGH and AOD9604, and β3-AR RNA expression was increased by both these compounds. This could possibly suggest that the increased expression of β3-ARs in brown adipocytes sensitizes catecholamines to dissipate heat.

The secret to health and wellness has been revealed. Recent scientific developments and studies have confirmed that the use of peptide supplements under the careful supervision of hormone doctors, will help to deliver your body to a state of youthful proportion and function. Through peptide supplementation, you enable the body to regenerate, enhance and perform to its optimal level.
In addition to reducing calories, increasing exercise, and drinking enough water – there are other things in your life you can do which can help make losing weight easier. None of these things will help you lose weight if you don’t first get your caloric intake correct, but they can provide assistance and side benefits that make you feel better in general.
We found that osteoarthritic rabbits administered intra-articular AOD9604 injections had better outcomes with lesser morphological and histolopathological damage than was observed in the control group. AOD9604 is a disulphide-constrained peptide that comprises 15 amino acids from the C-terminal sequence of human GH and an additional N-terminal tyrosine residue: YLRIVQCRSVEGSCGF . The exact mechanism underlying the action of GH in OA is unknown. Previous studies have shown that GH can act directly on the growth plate by stimulating local production of IGF-1 and by increasing cartilage metabolism [9,16] and chondrocyte proliferation . Although AOD9604 is not a high-affinity agonist of the GH receptor and does not stimulate the proliferation of cells transfected with the GH receptor, it retains some functions of GH . Initially, AOD9604 was investigated for the treatment of obesity in humans. In rodent models of obesity, AOD9604 showed a similar effect of weight loss as that observed with GH . However, AOD9604 does not induce diabetes and does not stimulate the production of IGF-1 .
In ob/ob mice, both AOD9604 and hGH reduced both white and brown adipose tissue mass and increased β3-AR RNA expression. This suggested that an elevation inβ 3-AR RNA expression is associated with increased fat metabolism and a reduction in the fat tissue mass in the ob/ob mouse model. Obese mice have lower levels ofβ 3-AR expression in their adipose tissues than lean mice, shown in this study and others (14). The ability of AOD9604 and hGH to increase the level ofβ 3-AR RNA expression in obese mice to a level that is comparable to those in lean mice is an exciting finding. However, it must also be considered that both hGH and AOD9604 may influence the expression of other members of the adrenergic pathway, such as the β1-ARs, hormonesensitive lipase, and signaling proteins, which are all expressed in adipose tissue and associated with lipolysis. The importance of the change inβ 3-AR expression with AOD9604 and hGH in humans is not established and will depend on the use of potent and selectiveβ 3-AR agonists that are active at the human receptor.
In order to demonstrate safety, several human studies were performed with AOD9604 (supplementary data): 1). METAOD001: A Phase I (double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose escalation) safety study with doses (ranging from 25 to 400 µg/kg AOD9604) administered intravenously to 15 healthy adult male volunteers presenting with a BMI between 24 and 30 kg/m2. A single dose of recombinant hGH (0.12 international units/kg) was administered intravenously as positive control. 2). METAOD002: A Phase IIa (double-blind, placebo-controlled 4 × 4 Latin Square design) safety study with single doses (25, 50 and 100 µg/kg AOD9604) administered intravenously to 23 healthy clinically obese males presenting with a BMI ≥ 35 kg/m2. 3). METAOD003: A Phase IIa (double-blind, placebo-controlled 4 × 4 Latin Square design) safety study with single doses (9, 27 and 54 mg AOD9604) administered orally (capsules) to 17 healthy, clinically obese males presenting with a BMI ≥ 35 kg/m2. 4). METAOD004: A Phase IIa (double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose escalation) safety study with multiple daily doses (9, 27 or 54 mg AOD9604) administered orally (capsules) for seven days in 36 healthy clinically obese males presenting with a BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2. 5). METAOD005: A Phase IIb (randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled) study to assess the efficacy (reduction in body weight), safety and tolerability of 12 weeks treatment with daily doses (1, 5, 10, 20 or 30 mg AOD9604) administered orally (capsules) in 300 healthy, clinically obese males, and females of non-child bearing potential, with a BMI ≥ 35 kg/m2. 6). METAOD006: A Phase IIb, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to assess the efficacy (reduction in body weight), safety and tolerability of 24 weeks treatment with different doses of AOD9604 tablets (0.25 mg, 0.5 mg, 1 mg, or placebo) in 502 obese adults.
The amazing effects of HCG on the hypothalamus were discovered by Dr. Albert T. W. Simeons in 1954, who observed that malnourished women tend to give birth to healthy babies with normal birth weights. Dr. Simeons concluded that women are able to do this because the HCG hormone that their bodies naturally produced during pregnancy helped their bodies to metabolise subcutaneous fat. hCG released by the embryo also helps women with weight redistribution (helps prevent uneven deposits of weight on thighs, abdomen, hips etc) and therefore women concerned with hormonal weight gain are ideal candidates for this diet.
Despite its announcement to the stock exchange in 2007 that trials showed at 24 weeks participants lost one kilogram at best, only last month Metabolic told its patent holders that it was going ahead with attempting to license the product in the US for use in sports drinks and dietary supplements. It is also pursuing commercial opportunities in the veterinary industry. This is after its chief, David Kenley, admitted several months ago that there is no proof it had any body-enhancing effects in humans.
Peptides are defined as a compound of two or more amino acids in which a carboxyl group of one is united with an amino group of another. With the elimination of a water molecule, a peptide bond is formed. To put it more simply, peptides are just small proteins. When the number of amino acids are less than 50, these are peptides. When higher than 50, these are proteins. The peptides are therefore small chains of amino acid which are present in all cells of the body. There are several kinds of peptides: oligopeptides, polymers, proteins, neuropeptides and peptide hormones. These are synthesized naturally by the body. Peptides will therefore be used primarily to make a more abundant amount of hormones in the body. The latter will then produce new hormones such as Testosterone or corticosteroids. It is these two hormones that are considered anabolic or indirect anti-inflammatory.
It is also important to note that whether you are a long-time user or a first-time user of Ipamorelin, your body is going to react differently to that of the next user. Like the benefits you will experience, the side effects you are going to experience will occur differently, and at different dosage levels. So, it truly is a trial and error period you are going to go through with a test run of Ipamorelin for new users. You have to find what works for you, how your body will react, and what potential side effects are lingering ahead, in order for you to achieve the greatest results, and eventually find the proper dosage and cycle level, which is going to work the best for your body and system.
Human Growth Hormone (hGH) is not only important for growth processes during childhood, but plays a pivotal role in lipid metabolism throughout life. It is well known that hGH is involved in the regulation of lipolysis and lipogenesis. Therefore, hGH was implicated as a good potential candidate for the treatment of obesity. However undesired side effects, such as induction of glucose intolerance and insulin resistance, diabetes, acromegaly, cancer, edema, and hypertension [10-13] rendered therapeutic doses of hGH unsuitable for long-term treatments in humans.
Application would result in all current OTC paracetamol/ phenylephrine products being up-scheduled to S3. Applicant’s justification for changing current combination products from exempt or S2 to S3 is on theoretical basis only, and no evidence provided of clinical risk. Pharmacokinetic study found that co-administration of paracetamol with phenylephrine increased plasma phenylephrine levels - applicant says this has potential for cardiac safety risk in susceptible patients.
Technically, it is a “protein-peptide hormone” which means that it consists of 70 amino acids bonded together. Just like the peptides I’ve written about in the past, this means that it must be injected, because otherwise IGF-1 simply degrades in the gut, rendering it useless. Your own human growth hormone release promotes the synthesis of IGF-1 in your liver (and to smaller amounts, synthesis of IGF-1 by your muscles), your liver and muscles then synthesize IGF-1 and then, in the case of your liver, subsequently package the IGF-1 with binding proteins for transport into the blood. In a type of anabolic positive-feedback loop, IGF-1 then further increases growth hormone’s anabolic effects.
Serum IGF-1 levels remained relatively constant over the dosing period with no apparent differences between treatment groups. Fasting plasma glucose and serum insulin levels remained unchanged throughout the treatment period. Furthermore, no changes in any of the OGTT parameters were observed from day 1 to day 7 of treatment. There were no study related clinically significant findings in the safety related laboratory tests, vital signs, or ECG measurements.
“We are delighted with these results,” stated Metabolic Pharmaceuticals CEO, Chris Belyea. “The evidence from the trial is that over 12 weeks AOD9604 induces competitive weight loss with accompanying health benefits at a low dose and has superior tolerability. Our next major focus is a partnership with a major pharmaceutical company to assist in financing late stage longer term human clinical trials for worldwide marketing approval as a prescription treatment.”
I'm using 100mcg 6am-12pm-6pm(3xday) HGH Fragment 176-191 and the last shot around 6pm taking 100mcg of GHRP-6 from SouthernResearchCo, I gotta brag on their quality and value there's no others on the same level (IMO)! I dropped 10-15lbs as soon as I started too! NO catabolic or any adverse effects. Well, I did get head aches and super shits when I first began but by wk2 I notice nothing and feel so great! My tummy looks so much better too, my wifes all jealous as hell n gets mad saying she wont compliment it cuz I use drugs to attain leanness lol Fk it
But for maintenance of adequate and natural IGF-1 and growth hormone, and to achieve that sweet spot of not becoming to pro-growth while also not becoming a weak, muscle-less noodle, that sweet spot of producing adequate insulin without producing too much, and that sweet spot of increasing cellular repair without letting cellular division get “out of control”, I have indeed been implementing three specific strategies: my IGF-1 “trilogy”.
For those who are just getting started, make sure you go gradually. Start off with an eight-week cycle, and start off with 200 mcg (rather than 300) per day. Doing a test run will allow you to see how your body is going to react. If all goes well, you can then increase your dosage cycle to an 8 to 12 week period, and possibly add an additional injection dose daily, or increase to 300 mcg with each use.
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.
The final study involved an assessment of the acute effect of AOD9604 and a β3-AR agonist (BRL37344) on energy expenditure, fat oxidation, and glucose oxidation in WT andβ 3-KO mice. When AOD9604 or BRL37344 were administered to WT mice, an acute increase in fat oxidation and energy expenditure occurred, with an associated reduction in glucose oxidation (Fig. 6A). The effect plateaued 18 min following injection and remained stable for the duration of the experiment. The response to the two compounds was very similar, despite the fact we have previously shown that AOD9604 does not directly interact with the β3-AR as demonstrated by ligand binding studies (11). This clear separation of pathways was further confirmed in Fig. 6B in which AOD9604 clearly increases fat oxidation and energy expenditure inβ 3-KO mice, whereas BRL37344 does not. The KO mice neither decrease their glucose oxidation in response to AOD9604 nor show a prolonged increase in fat oxidation and energy expenditure in response to AOD9604.
From the standpoint of protein synthesis and muscle repair, IGF-1 injections have also been shown to enhance the anticatabolic effects of insulin and to increase the protein synthesis normally induced by growth hormone. This is because, like insulin, IGF-1 encourages amino acid uptake into muscle cells, stimulates peripheral tissue uptake of glucose (which lowers blood glucose levels), and suppresses liver glucose production. That last fact is important and is actually why IGF-1 is even being considered as a diabetes-prevention drug. Insulin resistance can cause the liver to produce excess glucose, which then causes even more insulin insensitivity and can eventually result in type II diabetes, and IGF-1 can decrease the need for this type excessive insulin release.
Cerebrolysin—also known as FPE 1070—is a synthetic nootropic drug. Nootropic drugs are substances that enhance cognitive functions such as memory, creativity, and motivation in otherwise healthy individuals. This peptide is extremely small, allowing it to penetrate the blood-brain barrier and act directly on the neurons of the central nervous system. Cerebrolysin has been found to improve the metabolic activity of brain tissue, shield neurons from harmful substances, and stimulate the peripheral and central nervous systems. In addition to its utility as a nootropic substance, the drug has potential as part of a treatment plan addressing Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, and moderate to severe head injury.
One combination of natural supplements that boost IGF-1 with no injections required would simply be a one-two combo of whey protein and colostrum. Throw small bits of natural dairy into the mix and you’ve got a pretty potent trilogy for not just increasing IGF-1, but also all the fat loss, lean muscle gain, and cellular repair mechanisms that accompany a surge in growth hormone.
Results: After a single injection of CJC 1295, there were dose dependent increases in mean plasma GH concentrations by 2- to 10-fold for 6 d or more and in mean plasma IGF-I concentrations by 1.5- to 3-fold for 9–11 d. The estimated half-life of CJC 1295 was 5.8–8.1 d. After multiple CJC 1295 doses, mean IGF-I levels remained above baseline for up to 28 d. No serious adverse reactions were reported.
Follow the same routine as shown above for "intermediate" persons. However, as soon as possible after your weight training you should also inject 200mcg of PEG-MGF (IGF-1e) and/or 50mcg of IGF-1 LR3 preferably into a muscle (although due to the long half-life of both products, sub-q injections are also acceptable). If injecting intramuscularly, you should make sure that the muscle you are injecting into is not covered by a thick layer of fat. Usually due to the length of insulin syringe needles, injections are therefore limited to the biceps for most persons.
The first reason is that CJC-1295 DAC is a GHRH (growth hormone releasing hormone) acting directly at the pituitary, while GHRP products indirectly stimulate GH by causing the release of Ghrelin. Rotating the products would therefore ensure one method of GH stimulation does not get "worn out" from repeated exposure to the peptides. The second reason is that even though CJC-1295 DAC has been proven safe in much higher dosages than we recommend, since it causes a continual GH release (GH bleed) no one can be certain how continual use would affect the pituitary in the long-term, so it's a case of being "better safe than sorry" and never using it for longer than 6 months at a time without a break.
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.
Experimental animals were anesthetized with an intramuscular injection of xylazine (Rompun®; Bayer Co., Seoul, Korea) at a dose of 1.9 mg/kg and ketamine (Ketar®; Yuhan Co., Seoul, Korea) at a dose of 46 mg/kg. The right knee joints of all rabbits were shaved and sterilized. Then, 2 mg of collagenase type II from Clostridium histolyticum (Sigma Co., St. Louis, MO, USA) was prepared for intra-articular injection. Collagenase was dissolved in a sterile phosphate buffered saline (pH 7.4) and filtered with a 0.22-μm membrane. The solution was slowly injected into the right knee joint using ultrasound guidance. The same injection was repeated 3 days after the first injection, as previously reported (Figure 1) .
Mod GRF 1-29 and CJC-1295 are still being researched. As such, they are not yet medically utilized or approved. Though some firm protocols for the use of these peptides have been developed, the dosage of the compound is not yet medically confirmed. In a study conducted by researchers on 21 to 61 year-old subjects, it was found that depending on the dose, the concentrations of the growth hormone increased to up to 10 times for at least 6 days. Also, the concentration of IGF-1 increased to up to 3 times for 9 to 11 days.
A total of 18 patients (3.6%) reported at least one SAE. The distribution of SAEs was similar among all treatment groups (Table 2). The most common SAEs reported were in the injury, poisoning and procedural complications body system class (6 patients, 1.2%). The others were general disorders and administration site conditions (2 patients; 0.4%), infections and infestations (2 patients; 0.4%), musculo-skeletal and connective tissue disorders (2 patients; 0.4%), and vascular disorders (2 patients; 0.4%).
The ACMS recommended that Growth Hormone Releasing Hormones (GHRHs), Growth Hormone Secretagogues (GHSs), Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides (GHRPs) as well as new individual substance entries for CJC-1295, ipamorelin, pralmorelin (Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-2), Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-6, hexarelin and AOD-9604 be included in Schedule 4.
Getting enough sleep is essential to feeling good – and losing weight. “It’s not so much that if you sleep, you will lose weight, but if you are sleep-deprived, meaning that you are not getting enough minutes of sleep or good quality sleep, your metabolism will not function properly,” explains Michael Breus, PhD and the clinical director of the sleep division for Arrowhead Health in Glendale, Ariz.
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.
Simply Vital is an online service that acts as an agent between the customer and "Initially we were inundated by men wishing to find a way to add muscle quickly, but now in excess of 60 per cent of our weekly orders are women wanting products to help with results ranging from fat loss and anti-ageing to general well-being," says owner Michael Abdallah.
