Due to the similarity of AOD9604 to the C-terminus component of hGH some parameters that are associated with hGH activity have been carefully monitored in the long-term studies: 1). Oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTT) were conducted to assess the effect of treatment on glucose handling. 2). Testing for any anti-AOD9604 antibodies in blood samples of participants was conducted to investigate if oral administration of AOD9604 resulted in the generation of neutralizing antibodies. 3). Serum levels of IGF-1 were measured to confirm the hypothesis that unlike hGH, AOD9604 does not act via IGF-1 or raise IGF-1 levels.
AOD-9604 is a variant of growth hormone which has fat burning properties and may be used by athletes to increase power to weight ratios by better utilisation of fat stores. During clinical trials it was also found to have an anabolic effect on cartilage tissue and may promote cartilage creation and repair and have a capacity to enhance muscle formation.
Prior to commencement of active treatment, 48.4% of subjects experienced at least one AE. The body system organ classes with the highest incidences of events (> 10%) were the nervous system (17.5%; mainly headache, 14.5%), infections and infestations (15.9%, mainly nasopharyngitis and upper respiratory tract infection, 4.0%), gastrointestinal system (12.4%, mainly diarrhea 3.2%) and musco-skeletal and connective tissue disorders (12.0%, mainly back pain, 4.0%), 32.9% of subjects experienced mild AEs, 38.6% experienced moderate AEs and 36 (7.2%) patients experienced severe AEs. The intensity of AEs was similar across all treatment groups. None of the AEs were deemed to be definitely related to the study treatment.
Five patients in the study reported a serious AE; three in the AOD9604 20 mg group (basal cell carcinoma, moderate lipoma and squamous cell carcinoma), one in the 5 mg group (breast cancer) and one in the 10 mg group (malignant melanoma). According to the investigator, none of the SAEs reported were considered to be possibly, probably or definitely related to study medication (see discussion).
cDNAs were synthesized by reverse transcription (RT) of 1.0 μg of each total RNA using oligo (dT)15 as a primer. The RNA in a volume of 7.7 μl H2O was heated to 70 C for 5 min then placed on ice for 2 min before the addition of a reaction mix containing 1× RT buffer (Promega Corp., Madison, WI), 1 mM deoxynucleotide triphosphates (dNTPs), 5 mM MgCl2, 18 U Rnasin (Promega Corp.), 20 U avian myeloblastosis virus RT (Promega Corp.), and 50 μg ml−1 oligo(dT)15 in a volume of 12.5 μl. Following a brief centrifugation, the reactions were incubated at 42 C for 45 min and then 95 C for 5 min. The completed RT reactions were stored at −20 C and used for PCR without further treatment.
Another side effect of the CJC-1295 is acromegaly, since it helps in increasing the levels of the growth hormone. Acromegaly is a condition where extra growth hormone is released even after the internal organs and the skeleton have finished growing. This causes thickening of the skin, deepening of voice, enlargement of jaws, and slurring of speech. Another effect of acromegaly is the swelling of the soft tissue in the internal organs. This could result in the weakening of the muscles of the internal organs, like the heart. This was tested during the phase 2 testing of CJC-1295.
Five of the submissions did not support the proposal while the sixth submission did. The former contend that potential risks of inadvertent use of caffeine in those at risk of an adverse event will be increased if selection of an analgesic is made without the assistance or intervention of a healthcare professional. There was also concern that the proposed exemption may result in an increase in liver damage due to excessive consumption of such a product. This was likely to result from people abusing these products as a source of stimulants.

Peptide supplementation is fast becoming Australia’s solution to a variety of health, fitness, and age-related concerns. Peptides have been around long before the recent media brought it to our attention through use in elite sport. The simple science of amino acids linked together, via peptide bonds, brings to life this now common word—peptides. Some of the benefits that peptides can assist you with during your journey to health and wellbeing include:


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.
Strengths of our study include the serial physiologic assessments before and after bariatric surgery. The gastric bypass procedure ensured a large degree of weight loss (≈27% mean change in BMI), while the administration of normal saline provided an acute stimulus for eliciting acute natriuretic peptide responses. Thus, we were able to compare the relative effects of weight loss and saline infusion, with each individual serving as his or her own control. This study design minimizes confounding from sources of natriuretic peptide variation that might correlate with BMI. We performed the post‐surgical assessment 6 months after surgery to ensure that acute hemodynamic changes from surgery had resolved and patients had attained most of their expected weight loss. Mitral annular early diastolic (e′) velocity at the lateral annulus has been accepted as an index of diastolic function24, 25 and we had significant improvement in e′ suggesting improvement in myocardial relaxation. Our echocardiographic findings are in accordance with the recently published meta‐analysis demonstrating benefits of bariatric surgery on diastolic function.26
It is also notable that the rise in absolute concentrations of ANP and Nt‐proANP after weight loss surgery was comparable to that observed with a 2‐L saline infusion. This observation suggests that the magnitude of obesity‐induced alteration in natriuretic peptide production is physiologically relevant. The slope of the natriuretic peptide response to saline challenge was similar before and after weight loss, suggesting that obesity does not blunt the responsiveness of the natriuretic peptide axis to salt challenge, but rather alters the “set point.”
Cartilage loss in OA is caused by proteoglycan depletion and chondrocyte death that in turn are caused by imbalances between catabolic and anabolic activities within the joint [5]. Growth hormone (GH) has been shown to correct this imbalance [6]. Although the exact mechanism underlying the effects of intra-articular GH injection is not known, GH in the synovial fluid probably enhances proliferation, matrix synthesis, and differentiation of bone and cartilage cells in vitro [7]. Studies have found that GH accelerates healing in animal models of OA [8,9]. However, intra-articular GH injections in humans are known to have detrimental pro-tumor and pro-diabetic effects. These negative effects are caused by the secondarily produced insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) [10].

After about a week of taking the collagen, I noticed my nails were thicker and stronger and were growing faster. Usually, my nails break and tear off after they grow, but after drinking my collagen, they were growing nicely and faster than normal. In fact, when I got a gel manicure, which is supposed to last up to two weeks, my nails grew out after about eight or nine days, leaving the bottoms of my nail beds exposed. Although it was annoying having to get my nails redone, it wasn’t a bad problem to have!
The rabbits were clinically observed daily at 14:00. The rabbits were placed on a 2-m2 ground area, and gait was individually assessed by direct observation for 20 minutes. The knee and ankle of the intact rabbit limb showed typical flexion and extension cycle during hopping. Lameness was defined as the inability to bear weight and the loss of typical flexion and extension cycle of the affected limb during hopping compared with that of the unaffected limb. The severity of lameness was not quantified. The time taken to return to normal ambulation without lameness of the affected limb was recorded for each group. The lameness period was checked by three independent physiatrists who did not have knowledge of the experimental groups.

For example, there are Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides (GHRP’s with names such as ipamorelin and hexarein) which allow for a slow and steady growth hormone release that produces a pulse which mimics natural growth hormone release times and Growth Hormone Releasing Hormones (GHRH’s such as Mod-GRF) for an even stronger natural release of growth hormone and greater presence of growth hormone precursors known as GH “frags” or fragments.


Often when something is too good to be true, it usually is. The reality is peptides are not a magic potion that substitutes good nutrition, exercise and lifestyle choices. Fundamentally, peptides enhance the body’s own natural processes to produce their various effects, and many of these protein chains are already produced in the body to a certain degree. Often referred to as “the fountain of youth”, certain peptides have shown to reverse the decline in metabolic processes and repair associated with aging, restoring the body back into a more regenerative, youthful state by stimulating release of the body’s own natural human growth hormone (hGH).

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.
Ipamorelin, like other growth hormone peptides, is used to increase production of your own growth hormone levels. Growth hormone levels are at their peak in our twenties, and then gradually decrease with age. There are a few different peptides including Sermorelin, GHRP2, GHRP6, and Ipamorelin. These peptides are listed in order of how recently they have been developed, with Ipamorelin being the newest and most commonly recommended.
also using a dose of 400mcg for the IPAM is really a waste of your peptides as anything above saturation dose will give diminished returns, saturation dose(1mcg per kg) is a dose that will give maximum return, if you double the saturation dose then you will not get double the GH pulse in fact no where near that, then the more you use the less added benefit you will get.
When taking Ipamorelin, you want it to be pushed through your system naturally, and at the same levels. If you are constantly altering the times you take it, or increase/decrease dosages during your cycle, this is not going to be attainable. To maximize the benefits and gains you are going to experience, dosage levels should be consistent, as should the timing of the dosage you are taking each day.

There were no significant changes in IGF-1 values observed during 24 hours following any AOD9604 dose compared with placebo. No significant differences in glucose levels were observed following AOD9604 administration compared with placebo with the exception of one isolated time point (8% increase 12 hour post treatment in one subject receiving 54 mg AOD09604). There were no clinically significant observable trends in vital signs, physical examinations, abnormalities noted in the ECG measurements, or findings in the safety-related laboratory tests throughout the study.

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).
Phenylephrine is readily eliminated by sulphate conjugation in the intestinal wall, and oxidative deamination by monoamine oxidative glucuronidation in the liver. Monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors can enhance the limited potential of phenylephrine for cardiac and pressor effects, by reducing metabolism. As a largely specific alpha adrenergic drug, with very weak beta agonism, there is little direct cardiac effect. However, in higher doses, there can be increases in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure and a reflex bradycardia. As an adrenergic agonist there is the potential to interact with other sympathomimetic drugs. In overdose phenylephrine can cause hypertension, headaches seizures tachycardia, and vomiting. There has been no evidence from carcinogenicity studies in rodents of any enhanced cancer risk over prolonged exposure.
If using it with CJC 1295, you can experience a correlation in increased muscle mass levels. With longer release periods, greater results are achievable. So, if you want to gain more muscle mass, or if you simply want to increase levels of lean muscle mass, you are going to realize these possibilities when you incorporate the use of Ipamorelin into your daily regimen.
Django Nathan, a medical doctor with a degree in molecular biology and genetics, takes peptides because of his busy lifestyle: "Quite a few doctors I know are using them because they have so many beneficial effects and so few side effects. We're not elite athletes – we live rushed lives that can involve 70 hour weeks so staying fit and getting good sleep is essential – and peptides aid that."
