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.
An OGTT was performed at screening and after 12 and 24 weeks of treatment. At these visits blood samples for assessment of glucose and insulin were collected immediately prior to and 2 hours after an oral glucose load. After 12 weeks the overall change in pre-load glucose was -0.02 units and there were no significant differences between the randomized treatment groups (P = 0.73488). The changes in pre-load glucose in the placebo group differed by -0.08, -0.06, and -0.07 units from those obtained in the AOD9604 0.25 mg, 0.5 mg, and 1 mg treatment groups, respectively; none of these differences were statistically significant. Similar results have been obtained after 24 weeks of treatment. The overall change in pre-load glucose after 24 weeks treatment was 0.04 units, and there were no significant differences among the treatment groups (P = 0.62787). Estimated differences from placebo in change in pre-load glucose were -0.03, 0.02, and 0.06 units for the AOD9604 0.25 mg, 0.5 mg, and 1 mg treatment groups, respectively; none of these differences were statistically significant.
Peptide therapy encompasses numerous different drugs with varied effects, ranging from immune modulation and tissue repair to fat loss and muscle building. Our center has seen very positive results in patients with CFS, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Lyme disease, and fibromyalgia, among other conditions. Ask your physician or speak to a patient representative at (877) 508-1177 to find out if peptide therapy is right for you.

The weight lost by the 1mg group was slightly more than that achieved by the world’s largest selling prescription obesity medication in similar trials over the same period, without its troublesome side effects. The trial results also demonstrated a small but consistent improvement in cholesterol profiles, and a reduction in the number of patients with impaired glucose tolerance.

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).
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”.
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.
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.
Several epidemiologic studies have reported lower circulating natriuretic peptide concentrations in obese individuals.12, 14 However, these studies have been observational and confined to a single time point of measurement of natriuretic peptides. To our knowledge, only one previous study has examined the association of obesity with salt‐induced natriuretic peptide concentrations. Licata and colleagues found reduced, salt‐loaded plasma ANP concentrations in 9 obese individuals compared with 10 lean controls.21 They did not examine the influence of weight loss on the natriuretic peptide system. Thus, the present study is the first to provide serial, physiologic data from the same individuals over time.
It is well established that hGH is a lipolytic hormone (15), but the exact mechanisms used are still unclear. In this paper we present data that suggest that hGH and its lipolytic fragment (AOD9604) induce their chronic in vivo actions on lipolysis in part by modulating the expression of theβ 3-AR. Human GH has been shown to affect the in vivo expression and function of β-ARs in vivo in sheep (16). Data presented in this paper indicate that chronic administration of hGH influences expression of the β3-AR in adipose tissue in the ob/ob mouse. In brown adipose tissue (BAT), these compounds also increase expression of β3-AR expression in the lean C57BL/6J mouse. The increase in expression induced by chronic hGH or AOD9604 treatment correlated with the decrease in adipose tissue mass. We therefore hypothesize that treatment with either hGH or AOD9604 enhances β3-AR expression, which has been observed in murine 3T3-F442A and human SK-N-MC cells in vitro (11).

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.
Recent advances in the field of regenerative medicine, such as the use of platelet-rich plasma and stem cell injections, are emerging as the preferred options for treating OA. This is in part because patients do not desire only temporary alleviation of symptoms. Rather, patients also seek permanent correction and repair of the underlying biology for regenerating the damaged tissue in order to permanently alleviate their symptoms [4]. The aforementioned treatment options have been used in several areas of medicine for delivering growth factors to optimize healing.
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.
Very tough to say. I am not a doctor and this is not to be taken, interpreted or construed as medical advice. Please talk with a licensed medical professional about this. These are just my own personal thoughts and not a prescription or a diagnosis or any form of health care whatsoever. I could possibly help but would need to see your health history, blood, biomarkers, etc. I'd be happy to help you via a personal one-on-one consult. Just go to https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/coaching. and then choose a 20 or 60 minute consult, whichever you'd prefer. I can schedule ASAP after you get that.
Paracetamol has long been considered very safe, without the risks of gastric injury associated with aspirin and NSAIDs. But there are distinct risks of liver injury, usually following overdose situations. In response many international regulatory authorities have taken steps to reduce the pack sizes of paracetamol, and to restrict release in some environments to pharmacies. In the USA, FDA has required prescription acetaminophen, when it is usually combined with an opioid, to reduce the dose per dose unit to 325 mg, but without reducing the maximal daily dose. No change of dosing in the USA has yet come for OTC acetaminophen. Use of paracetamol should be kept to a minimum in patients with underlying liver and renal disease. It can reduce the effects of lithium, ACE inhibitors, beta blockers and methotrexate. However, it remains one of the safest and most effective analgesic drugs, particularly in the elderly where the risks of gastric bleeding with NSAIDs are more common, and carries minimal side effects.
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.
Metabolic turned their attention to human studies and performed six clinical trials on 925 people between 2001 and 2007. Not one of these trials showed that AOD9604 caused any weight loss or changes in body composition (3). In 2007, the company that owns Metabolic, Calzada, reported to their shareholders that AOD9604 showed no promise, and was being abandoned as a weight loss drug (2,3). The failure was blamed on inefficient absorption of the peptide drug through oral administration, as was used in the trials, even though rodent studies had shown the oral delivery route to be effective. At this point, Metabolic had sunk a massive $50 million into development and trials of AOD9604.
Collagen is also supposed to help with joint pain. Although I (luckily) don’t have chronic pain in my joints, my knees do flare up from time to time ever since I ran a half marathon a couple years ago. I also get some soreness in what feels like the bones in my legs a couple times a week, usually after a run or intense cardio session. If drinking collagen would ease this pain, then I was game.

Hey Elvia, do you think that using DAC for short periods of time at your proposed dose is still effective for fat loss? Say for four weeks at 4mg a week? I know peptides need to be used for awhile before effect can be seen. I was thinking about doing 4mg a week for 4 weeks with Injectable l-carnitine for my last 4 weeks before summer haha. In your experience is it worth it to spend the money on the DAC for such a short period?

For example, insufficient protein or calories can cause IGF-1 to plummet, while ample calories can cause IGF-1 to increase. For example, one study of women who fed with excess calories over and above their normal metabolic rate noted a 19% increase in IGF-1 after two weeks of overfeeding, with 46% of the weight gain from  lean mass and 54% from bodyfat. Fasting insulin doubled in these women, and testosterone levels also significantly increased.
Following amplification, PCR products were electrophoresed on 1.3% agarose gels and transferred onto Hybond N+ membranes (RPN 303B, Amersham Pharmacia Biotech) by Southern blotting in 0.4 M NaOH/1 M NaCl. The membranes were rinsed for 5 min in 0.5 M Tris-HCl (pH 7.5)/1 M NaCl and then in 0.3 M NaCl/30 mM sodium citrate, and air dried. Membranes were apposed directly to a phosphor imager screen for 18 h, and scanned using a Storm PhosphorImager and data quantitated using MCID software (Imaging Research, Inc., St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada). The β3-AR product bands were normalized against the β-actin control, averaged, and RNA isolated from treated animals was expressed against control animals.

As simple and basic as it is, eating less calories is much harder in practice than it sounds. Ask anyone who has ever gone on a diet before! Everyone knows if you want to lose weight, you need to eat less. It’s the first step of any legitimate diet and fitness program, but how much less, and what to eat remains a mystery to many dieters. Or, the results don’t come quickly enough and the dieter gives up before real results are experienced.


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.”
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.
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.

It has to be noted that three of the SAEs were skin cancer forms. Since the study was performed in Australia, a country with the highest incidence rate of skin cancer (http://globocan.iarc.fr/), this cumulative incidence is not improbable. Furthermore the study was performed on clinically obese subjects with a BMI ≥ 35 kg/m2 (BMI ≥ 35 kg/m2; Median BMI: 40 kg/m2, range: 35 to 67 kg/m2). It is known that the incidence of several types of cancers is associated with increased BMI [26].
For Growth Hormone (GH) to perform its anabolic (muscle building) affects it requires the presence of the body's most anabolic hormone: insulin. This is in contrast to GH related fat loss which requires insulin to be absent. However, since GHRP and fast-acting GHRH (Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone) products (i.e. Modified GRF 1-29) still need time to stimulate the body to release GH from the pituitary gland, the insulin spike must come after the injection and not before, otherwise the GH release will be blunted.
Twelve WT and 11 β3-KO male mice aged between 12 and 14 wk were used in the chronic administration study. The animals were housed individually in cages under the conditions described above. The animals were divided into three groups: WT [control (saline; n = 3); AOD (250 μg/kg·d; n = 4) and hGH (1 mg/kg·d; n = 5)] and β3-KO [control (saline; n = 3); AOD (250 μg/kg·d; n = 4); and hGH (1 mg/kg·d; n = 4)]. On d 0, all animals were anesthetized with sodium pentobarbitone and a collection of blood (200 μl) was taken in heparinized tubes (Terumo, Somerset, NJ) for glycerol determination. The plasma was isolated by centrifugation and stored at −20 C until required for analysis. For the following 28 d, the animals were given a single ip dose of compound at 0800 h each morning. Their food intake and body weight were recorded every second day and results expressed as a change from d 0. On d 28, the animals were anesthetized with sodium pentobarbitone, blood was collected for plasma glycerol determination, and they were then killed by a lethal injection of sodium pentobarbitone to the heart (35 mg/kg). Their white epididymal and brown subscapular adipose tissues were collected and weighed.
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.
Yes, Ipamorelin can help you lose weight. But, if you are not exercising, and aren’t eating well, it can only do so much. There is no magical supplement which will undo laziness and a horrible diet – keep this in mind. When using it for fat loss, make sure you are exercising. Doing so will naturally increase weight loss results, as you are going to burn more calories, along with the caloric deficit you are already on, for greater results. Further, your diet matters. If you are eating 5000 calories of junk per day, no supplement will help you lose weight – no matter how potent it claims to be!
Two submissions supported the proposal as advertising was considered to bring important benefits in terms of better information for consumers on the availability of a combination product with rapid and effective pain relief and reduced doses of analgesic. Responsible advertising will alert consumers that combination products are available from pharmacies with advice from the pharmacist. One submission opposed the proposal as it was believed that there would be no benefit to the consumer by amending Appendix H to include a new entry for paracetamol/ibuprofen.

AOD9604 is promoted heavily by various manufacturers as a substance that is able to burn fat and assist in the repair of muscle and cartilage. The fact that this product derives from, and claims to mimic the effects of a powerfully anabolic banned substance provides a psychological incentive to many potential users, as does the attention drawn by the AFL "peptides" scandal of early 2013 and the subsequent report by the Australian Crime Commission (1).

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.
In June 2011 the Advisory Committee on Medicines Scheduling was referred a proposal by the delegate to consider up-scheduling of five (5) then unscheduled substances contained in cold and cough preparations into Schedule 2. One of these substances was phenylephrine and many public submissions received rejected this proposal on the grounds of the paracetamol/phenylephrine exemptions in the Schedule 2 entry. The committee made similar comments and the delegate agreed that the current exempt from scheduling status of phenylephrine was appropriate.
