Eligible study subjects were admitted after overnight fasting for an outpatient visit at the MGH CRC. Upon admission, two intravenous catheters were placed for phlebotomy and 10 mL/m2 of body‐surface area (BSA)/minute normal saline (0.9 mEq/mL) was infused over 2 hours. Blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygen saturation were measured every 20 minutes during the saline infusion. BSA was calculated according to the DuBois algorithm (BSA (in m2)=0.20247×height (m)0.725×weight (kg)0.425). Venous blood was sampled beginning immediately prior to the start of the infusion and at 40, 80, 120, and 180 minutes after the start of the infusion.

Background: The human growth hormone (hGH) has properties making it a potential candidate to treat obesity, however safety issues limit its long-term use. AOD9604 is a peptide fragment of the C-terminus of hGH (Tyr-hGH177-191), which harbors the fat reducing activity of hGH, without its negative effects. In this paper the safety data of AOD9604 obtained in clinical trials are summarized.


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.”
Plasma Nt‐proANP levels were measured by ELISA (proANP 1‐98; Biomedica Medizinprodukte GmbH & Co KG, Austria). Plasma Nt‐proBNP levels were measured using an electrochemiluminescence immunoassay (Elecsys proBNP; Roche, Indianapolis, IN). Mature ANP was measured using an in‐house immunoassay at the Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN; J. Burnett). Mature BNP was measured by immunoassay (Siemens, New York, NY). Intra‐assay coefficients of variation were <10% for all assays.
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).

Solcoseryl: Derived from calves’ blood and is believed to speed up healing of damaged or injured tissues, solcoseryl is currently used in humans as eye gel for corneal ulcers, a jelly/ointment for gangrene and bedsores, burns and wound healing, and inflammation of gums, lips and mouth ulcers. No major adverse effects been reported. Solcoseryl is not specifically banned under WADA as a substance but can potentially be banned as a method depending on how the substance is administered and how much is used.
The expression of β3-AR RNA was assessed by RT by using radiolabeled primers and Southern blot analysis. Labeled bands were identified and semiquantitated by phosphorimaging. RT-PCR analysis demonstrated that ob/ob mice express lower amounts ofβ 3-AR RNA in their white (Fig. 3A) and brown (Fig. 3B) adipose tissues, compared with lean C57BL/6J mice, in agreement with others (14). Figure 3A shows the effect of saline, AOD9604, and hGH on β3-AR RNA expression in epididymal adipose tissue from both lean and obese mice, respectively. The level of β3-AR expression increased significantly in response to AOD9604 and hGH only in the obese mice, correlating with the significant decrease in epididymal adipose tissue weights seen in these mice. The same correlation was observed in brown adipose tissue, where increased expression of β3-AR was accompanied by a decrease in brown adipose tissue mass in both lean and obese mice (Fig. 3B).
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
The simple science of amino acids linked together, via peptide bonds, brings to life this now common word – “Peptides”. Used for a variety of health, fitness and anti ageing concerns, Peptides can help in many ways to promote fat loss, build lean muscle, assist with injury recovery, increase agility, and many other anti ageing benefits. Peptides are amino acid chains that act as messengers in the cellular world by telling your cells what to do. One of the world’s best kept secrets for optimal health is Human Growth Hormone (HGH). HGH is so instrumentally important that its decline as we age is directly related to our health and quality of life. Modern medicine is now recognising its decrease as a clinical syndrome called “Growth Hormone Deficiency Syndrome”. By stimulating your Growth Hormone levels back to a level that is clinically predicted for your age will allow your body to perform at its peak which allows you to feel youthful and rejuvenated.
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.
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].
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

You're the only person around here who is big-noting yourself with facts and then made a complete fool of yourself. I don't claim to be a science expert. I can freely admit I was ignorant and confused by Essendon fans saying this wasn't a PED. So I did a quick google search, read a few things about AOD9604 and posted it here. Not sure what your deal is.

Advanced Obesity Drug 9604 (AOD9604), targets fat metabolism directly by enhancing the breakdown of stored fats and inhibiting the synthesis of new fats. It is a peptide drug derived from the fat-reducing activity of human growth hormone (hGH). hGH has been shown to cause fat reduction, but is not suitable as an anti-obesity drug as it also causes an increase in muscle, organ and bone mass as well as causing diabetes to develop. The effectiveness of hGH declines in older people, correlating with the tendency to put on weight as one gets older. In support of this, the clinical trials so far have shown a greater effect of AOD9604 in the older population.
Figure 1A shows the chronic effect of saline, AOD9604, and hGH in lean C57BL/6J mice on body weight and food intake. The hGH potently increased the body weight gain of these mice, reaching significance by d 8. There was an increase in body weight after AOD9604 only on the last day of treatment. In contrast, ob/ob mice (Fig. 1B) showed a profound decrease in body weight after both AOD9604 and hGH. Importantly, these effects were not attributed to changes in food intake in either the lean or the ob/ob mice (Fig. 1, C and D, respectively).
Nevertheless, the hypothesis that AOD9604 does not activate the hGH/IGF-1 axis had to be tested in humans. The studies presented here confirm the in-vitro results. In these studies no clinically relevant changes of IGF-1 levels were observed and no differences to the placebo treatment were found. Together with the lack of any other symptoms associated with known IGF-1 mediated effects, such as sodium retention, tissue oedema, hypertension, or impaired glucose tolerance, the results demonstrate that AOD9604 does not activate the hGH/IGF-1 pathway and therefore has no growth promoting effect.
Tissues from ob/ob and lean mice were cut into 100-mg pieces and homogenized with 1 ml TRIzol (Life Technologies, Inc., Grand Island, NY) using a PolyTron homogenizer (Kinematica, Lausanne, Switzerland). The samples were incubated for 5 min at room temperature to permit the complete extraction of the RNA from the tissues. An aliquot of 0.2 ml chloroform was added to each milliliter of TRIzol. The method of RNA extraction was as described by the manufacturer (Life Technologies, Inc.). The final RNA pellet was air dried for 5–10 min and then resuspended in 20 μl ddH20. RNA was quantitated spectrophotometrically using the A260/280 ratio.
First, when buying them, peptides are stored in the refrigerator. It is necessary to wash your hands before administering every preparation. Peptides are mixed with sterilized water. After taking 2 to 1ml sterilized water with a syringe, you should let it run down the wall of the peptide vial. Let it rest for ten minutes then mix gently. It is important not to stir the solution.
There are several limitations of our study. Given the nature of our physiologic protocols, which required two large volume saline infusions in obese patients before and after surgery, our sample size was modest. Nonetheless, we were able to elicit significant relationships of all four natriuretic peptides (ANP, Nt‐proANP, BNP, and Nt‐proBNP) across a variety of salt conditions before and after surgical weight loss. Our study population consisted of primarily females. We do not believe from prior epidemiologic studies looking at resting natriuretic peptide levels in obese individuals12 that having more men in our cohort would have modified our findings. Prior epidemiologic studies do not suggest that gender modifies the association between obesity and natriuretic peptide concentrations. We did not examine short‐term changes in the natriuretic peptide system, as a physiologic assessment immediately after surgery would have been impractical and potentially confounded by post‐operative shifts in volume or nutrition. We also focused on surgical weight loss because weight loss with non‐surgical treatments is less consistent. Thus, we cannot exclude any surgery‐specific effects. Because the saline infusion was indexed to BSA, less saline was given at the post‐weight loss visit. This could have created a “conservative” bias, eg, toward observing a smaller natriuretic peptide response after surgery. Indexing was performed to ensure that the amount of saline relative to plasma volume was relatively constant. Lastly, we did not perform a complete assessment of the renin‐angiotensin‐aldosterone system and the sympathetic nervous system, all of which could also be primarily affected resulting in the observed responses of the natriuretic peptide system after weight loss and/or saline loading.
But gene-therapy experiments have also resulted in patient deaths. The use of such therapies can cause the human body to experience fatal immune reactions to the vectors used to place the gene in the body. Another danger of gene therapy is an inability to control the expression of the gene, which could translate into a rapidly spreading cancer. Or the expression of the gene could spread from skeletal muscle into heart muscle, resulting in excessive heart muscle growth (known as left ventricular hypertrophy, or “athlete’s heart) that can cause premature heart failure.
One of the biggest concerns many of us have as we get older is: weight management. Maintaining a healthy weight is a lifelong struggle for many and can get harder as we get older. In fact, statistics show that 70% of American adults are overweight, and half of those adults are obese. We need to find ways to lose weight in a healthy manner, and more importantly keep off the weight, long-term. Ongoing research about collagen, a natural and unique type of protein, shows that collagen supplementation just might be the key in your journey to stay at a healthy weight and better your health.
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.
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.

An important component of losing weight and staying healthy is being active-whether by going to the gym or even just walking regularly. To stay active, we need to make sure our bodies stay strong, as well as avoid injuries or other aches and pains that may prevent us from working out. Collagen supplementation can help. Adding collagen protein into your daily diet can help support your bones and joints. In a 24-week study, researchers observed the effect of collagen hydrolysate supplementation on exercise related joint pain on 97 human athletes. The researchers found that collagen supplementation can reduce joint pain (3). Therefore, adding collagen into your daily routine can help in your weight loss plan by preventing pain and joint injury arising from physical activity and exercise.

There is evidence of involvement of organised crime in supply of the substances. The substances are offered for sale via the internet. Many of the substances are promoted as safe alternatives to traditional performance enhancing substances such as the anabolic steroids. Suppliers are making unproven assertions about the efficacy and safety of the substances.
An Australian-owned obesity drug, developed by Melbourne-based biotechnology company Metabolic Pharmaceuticals Limited, is set to enter final human trials next year after successfully completing a Phase 2b human trial which proved that the drug induces weight loss and is very well tolerated with no evidence of the side effects commonly experienced with existing obesity drugs.

The consumption of all dairy products have been shown to naturally raise IGF-1 levels , but I personally go straight to the source and both drink camel milk and other forms of raw milk (in moderation) and use goat’s milk colostrum. In scientific studies, colostrum supplements have proven to increase the amount of IGF-1 and IgA in the bloodstream (IgA is an important immunoglobulin that helps to ensure our immunity to pathogens, especially in the mucous membranes).
Depending on the intended use, and your desired results, the dosage levels are going to vary from person to person as well.
