Results Mean gross morphological and histopathological scores were significantly higher in Group 1 than in Groups 2, 3, and 4, and the scores were significantly lower in Group 4 than in Groups 2 and 3. The lameness period in Group 4 was significantly shorter than those in Groups 1, 2, and 3. The lameness period in Group 1 was significantly longer than those in Groups 2 and 3. Conclusion: Intra-articular AOD9604 injections using ultrasound guidance enhanced cartilage regeneration, and combined AOD9604 and HA injections were more effective than HA or AOD9604 injections alone in the collagenase-induced knee OA rabbit model.
Thirty-two rabbits were divided into 4 equal groups. Four different solutions, including saline, HA, AOD9604, and AOD9604 with HA, were injected in each group on a weekly basis for 4–7 weeks after the first collagenase injection. Group 1 received intra-articular saline injection (0.6 mL). Group 2 received intra-articular HA, (Hyruan-plus®; LG Life Science, Daejeon, Korea) injection (6 mg). The molecular weight of HA was measured at 3.0×106 Da, and it was prepared to a 10 mg/mL concentration. Group 3 received intra-articular AOD9604 (Metabolic pharmaceuticals, Melbourne, Australia) injection (0.25 mg per 0.6 mL). Group 4 received combined intra-articular AOD9604 (0.25 mg) and HA (6 mg) injections. All injections were administered by a physiatrist, using a commercially available ultrasound system with 3–12 MHz multi-frequency linear transducer (E-CUBE 15®; Alpionion Medical Systems, Seoul, Korea) under general anesthesia and under sterile conditions (Figure 1). No medication was administered after the injection. The rabbits were euthanized by CO inhalation 9 weeks after the first collagenase injection (Figure 2).

OxySelect Pink is one of the best choices for women looking to get leaner.
The particle size of a drug molecule is a crucial factor in the effects of intra-articular injections. The larger the particle size, the longer the drug will stay in a joint, thereby increasing its efficacy . The short residence time of intra-articular AOD9604 when dissolved in saline was due to its rapid uptake by local circulation. However, the combination of AOD9604 with HA may result in more residence time and better effects in the joint. Recent studies [21–23] have shown that the addition of HA to nanoparticles improves the drug effects by increasing drug bioavailability and decreasing systemic absorption after topical administration.
The β3-AR and actin primers were intron spanning to potentially reveal contaminant genomic DNA (none observed). Reverse primers were labeled before the PCR in a reaction mixture containing 120 pmol oligonucleotide, 70 μCi[γ -33P]ATP (Bresagen, Adelaide, Australia), 1× One-Phor-All Plus buffer (Pharmacia Biotech, Uppsala, Sweden) and 20 U T4 polynucleotide kinase (Pharmacia Biotech) in a volume of 40 μl. Following incubation at 37 C for 30 min, reactions were diluted to 100 μl with H2O and heated at 90 C for 2 min.
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.
ASADA gave advice to the ACC, and perhaps Essendon, that AOD-9604 was not banned under the S2 category. Given the expectation that AOD-9604 would not be anabolic because it lacked the ''anabolic region'' of HGH, it is perhaps understandable that ASADA did not classify it under S2 in 2011 and 2012, although its close structural relationship to the banned HGH should have been sufficient to include it on the banned list.
These segments of the synthetic peptide AOD9604 have been researched for their in vivo effects in laboratory mice musculus. Results have shown that AOD9604 have resulted to a short-period increase in blood glucose and a more sustained increase in plasma insulin, together with other fragments such as 172-191, 177-191 and 178-191. In addition, the researchers have suggested that functionality of the peptide depends not only in the informational sequence but should also have the correct physical configuration (Ng and Borstein 1978). Also, AOD9604, being a region of high accessibility to proteases and also rich in proline, have been demonstrated to affect the conformational change in the cytoplasmic domain of the band 3 of erythrocyte membrane protein by serving as the hinge for the pivoting of the two subdomains. This then suggest that such residue is significant in conformational changes be serving as sites for peripheral protein binding in some body cells (Low et al. 1984).
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
For CJC-1295 DAC there are no particular diet restrictions that need to be followed due to its long half-life. For GHRP products the following should be observed as insulin and fatty acids can blunt the release of GH in the body and therefore make your injections less effective: •Avoid eating/drinking anything high in fat for 3 hours before your injection and anything high in carbohydrates for 1-2 hours (always do your injection on an empty stomach). •Wait at least 20 minutes after your injection before eating/drinking anything with calories.
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%).
The other submission commented on the consideration to place AOD-9604 in Appendix D. The submission supported listing in Schedule 4, but raised concerns that listing the substance in Appendix D would limit any future development work, including clinical trials that are currently being conducted on the substance. The submitter notes that there are currently 5 clinical trials notified to the TGA using this substance , with these approved clinical trials going ahead on the basis that the substance is safe for human use. Inclusion in Appendix D may place unnecessary burden on those conducting these clinical trials.
AOD has been shown to target abnormal fat stores, and to prevent fat from being stored in the cells. Studies have shown that it reduces the most stubborn fat regions (like abdominal fat). It also has other benefits including increasing muscle mass, increasing IGF-1 (insulin growth factor) in a positive way to metabolise fat, and increase the amount of energy burned for the same amount of activity.

These “protein chains”, are not just turned to by gym junkies for their muscle synthesising and fat burning properties. With peptides for injury recovery and repair, cognition, anti-aging, sleep, tanning, improving libido, or anxiety, to name a few, this growing market caters for everyone. Unfortunately, there has been a lot of stigma in the public eye due to media and press, shaming their use and clouding potential in debilitating chronic conditions such as obesity, muscle atrophy, osteoarthritis, dementia, Alzheimer’s or even recovery post stroke.
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.
Because these peptides are so numerous and variable in structure, their effects are likewise varied and wide-ranging. One class of these peptides are known as growth hormone secretagogues, and cause the secretion of one’s own, natural hGH in the body. These peptides have been shown to be very useful in the treatment of age-related conditions, osteoporosis, obesity, and various chronic inflammatory diseases, and have several advantages over traditional hGH administration.
CJC 1295 has shown some amazing results as a growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) analog. Not only has CJC 1295 shown potential to increase growth hormone and IGF-I secretion and effects, but it has been able to do so in very large amounts. CJC 1295 Stimulates Growth Hormone Secretion, and will keep a steady increase of HGH and IGF-1 with no increase in prolactin, leading to fat loss, and increased protein synthesis thereby promoting growth.
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.
When it comes to losing weight, no matter how little amount, it’s an uphill struggle…all the way! Using peptides correctly will provide surprisingly good results if the user can also put in some effort from the very start. Just by reducing your food and calorie drinks along with some daily exercise will soon reward you with a noticeable decrease in weight and fat loss.
We enrolled 15 obese individuals (mean BMI 45±5.4 kg/m2) undergoing gastric bypass surgery. Before and 6 months after surgery, subjects were admitted to the clinical research center and administered a large‐volume intravenous saline challenge. Echocardiography and serial blood sampling were performed. From the pre‐operative visit to 6 months after surgery, subjects had a mean BMI decrease of 27%. At the 6‐month visit, N‐terminal pro‐atrial NP (Nt‐proANP) levels were 40% higher before, during, and after the saline infusion, compared with levels measured at the same time points during the pre‐operative visit (P<0.001). The rise in Nt‐pro‐ANP induced by the saline infusion (≈50%) was similar both before and after surgery (saline, P<0.001; interaction, P=0.2). Similar results were obtained for BNP and Nt‐proBNP; resting concentrations increased by 50% and 31%, respectively, after gastric bypass surgery. The increase in NP concentrations after surgery was accompanied by significant decreases in mean arterial pressure (P=0.004) and heart rate (P<0.001), and an increase in mitral annular diastolic velocity (P=0.02).
In total 118 AEs were reported. No SAEs were reported. The most common adverse event reported by 16/23 subjects (69.6%) was mild or moderate headache. From all the reported AEs three events were reported of severe intensity (one in the 50 µg/kg AOD9604 group, 2 in the placebo group), with one of those events (a feeling of chest tightness) deemed possibly related to the AOD9604 treatment. Mild or moderate euphoria deemed possibly related to treatment, was reported by 5/23 subjects, during the periods when the AOD9604 was administered. There were no reports of euphoria during placebo administration. In total, there was no observable trend between the different treatment groups with respect to the incidence of certain AEs.
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!
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.
As it is not yet approved for use in this country (or any other), it should always have been considered banned under the S0 category, which states that any pharmacological substance that is not addressed by any of the subsequent sections of the Prohibited List and with no current approval by any governmental regulatory health authority for human therapeutic use (e.g. drugs under pre-clinical or clinical development or discontinued, designer drugs, substances approved only for veterinary use) is prohibited.
In plasma, different isoforms and fragments of hGH were found . Research on specific domains and fractions of the protein revealed that they can be assigned to different actions of the protein: In vitro and in vivo experiments have shown that several fragments of the amino terminal region of hGH, namely 1-15, 1-42, 6-13, and 32-46, exhibit an insulin-potentiating action [14-16]. The region hGH 108-129 was found to evoke high mitogenic responses , while the carboxy terminus hGH177-191 seemed to be a lipid mobilizing domain, inhibiting the acetyl-CoA carboxylase activity in adipocytes and hepatocytes .
AOD9604 is a new synthetic peptide fragment that comprises a modified 15 amino acid region of GH with a tyrosine component to help stabilize the molecule. Similar to GH, AOD9604 aids weight reduction in rodent models of obesity and was originally developed for the treatment of obesity in humans . Additionally, it does not stimulate the production of IGF-1 , has positive effects on the differentiation of adipose mesenchymal stem cells into bone, and was found to promote proteoglycan and collagen production in isolated bovine chondrocytes in an in vitro study by Metabolic Pharmaceuticals (patent applied [WO2013082667]). Its positive effects include promoting the repair of bone and cartilage in cases of OA.
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.
Various experiments have been conducted to test the effectiveness of CJC 1295-DAC in vivo and the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism has reported dose-dependent increases in mean plasma GH concentrations by 2-10 fold for more than 6 days and increased IGF-1 concentrations 1.5-3 fold for 9-11 days after a single injection. Mean half-life was shown to be 5.8-8.1 days, also after multiple doses mean IGF-1 levels remained above baseline for up to 28 days. No serious adverse reactions were reported in any group.
Thymosin alpha-1 (T α 1) is a peptide, or small protein, consisting of 28 amino acids. T α 1 is produced naturally by the thymus gland. The thymus is located behind the sternum and between the lungs, and is where immune cells known as T cells mature and are released, prompted to do so by the T α 1 peptide. T cell production and action within the body is vital to adaptive immunity—the mode by which immune cells are able to recognize and eradicate foreign invaders.
Ultimately, it needs to be trialled in athletes. But that would never happen. As a substance with no therapeutic use, there is no need to ever test it to determine its effect on athletic performance. You don't need the same standard of evidence for drugs like EPO (synthetic replicas of hormones), where the primary biological effect studied in clinical trials of non-athletes is clearly and blatantly performance enhancing. With something like AOD9604, the waters are much murkier with respect to athletic performance.

Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS version 14.0 (SPSS, Chicago, Ill). The differences of gross morphological and histolopathological findings and lameness period among four groups were assessed using the Kruskal–Wallis test. The Mann–Whitney U test was used to compare the gross morphological and histolopathological findings and lameness period between two groups, and p-values <0.05 were considered statistically significant.
These findings suggest that the acute effects of AOD9604 are quite different from the chronic effects. Enhancedβ 3-AR expression appears to play a major role in the chronic effectiveness of the compound in terms of fat metabolism and weight loss. The acute effects observed in this study confirm that the β3-AR is not the sole mediator of this action. The increase in β3-AR expression in response to hGH and AOD9604 would permit enhanced lipolytic sensitivity. Identification of the components of the intracellular pathway(s) and effector(s) activated by AOD9604 are currently being investigated. The results presented in this paper suggest that the effectiveness of AOD9604 and hGH may partly rely on their ability to increase levels of β3-AR RNA expression in models of obesity in which the numbers of the lipolytic receptor are low. These unique properties may give AOD9604 an advantage over other lipolytic agonists such as adrenergic agents and hGH, which exhibit undesirable side effects when administered chronically (22).
