Frailty in older women possible of being treated with appetite-stimulating hormoneGhrelin, a hormone that stimulates appetite, can be used as an effective option for offering relief to older women suffering from clinical frailty. This finding was revealed by a study presented by Penn Medicine researchers at ENDO, The Endocrine Society’s 91st Annual Meeting.

Frailty is a common geriatric syndrome that is characterized by unintentional weight loss, exhaustion, weakness, and low levels of anabolic hormones prompting increase in risk of falls, hospitalizations, disability, and even death.

Anne Cappola, MD, ScM, Assistant Professor of Medicine in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, said that efforts to identify ways for preventing or treating common geriatric conditions has become highly important today due to the associated severe health consequences.

Trial of latest osteoporosis drug about to startA human trial of a new osteoporosis drug is about to be initiated by Endocrinologists at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and UPMC. The trial is expected to offer significant relief to osteoporosis patients suffering from weakened bones.

Principal investigator Mara J. Horwitz, M.D., an assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Pitt School of Medicine, and a practicing metabolic bone specialist at UPMC, said that 105 participants will be randomly assigned to receive either teriparitide, FDA-approved drug, or an experimental agent known as parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP).

New sports doping products sold on the Black MarketNon-steroidal and tissue-selective anabolic agents such as Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs) are being openly sold on the black market because of their performance enhancing characteristics, according to researchers from the German Sport University Cologne in Germany.

This finding emerged after detection of the drug candidate Andarine in a product sold via the Internet that highlighted that the availability of authentic SARMs.

Mario Thevis, Ph.D., and colleagues, said that SARMs that come with considerable anabolic properties are readily available without sufficient research on their undesirable effects. This issue was recently addressed at the Conference of Parties to the International Convention against Doping in Sport, held October 26-28, 2009 at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) headquarters in Paris.

  NFL claims no HGH (human growth hormone) used

NFL steroidsIn one of the stupidest statements we have come up on, we just found out that the NFL denies it’s players uses HGH (human growth hormone), excuse me? maybe it’s best to face up to reality! NFL has probably the highest anabolic steroid and HGH (human growth hormone) use in all sports. Let’s be fair, NFL players need steroids and HGH to play hard and fast and to recover from the 1000s of injuries they encounter each day. But, going out there and saying there are no steroids or HGH used or it’s not a “problem,” is just drawing the wrong attention. Later you’ll have 100s of congressional hearings about steroid use in NFL and probably HGH use and people will be brought up on charges for denying the drug situation.

The use of human growth hormone is more of a problem in baseball than in football, the president of the NFL Players Association insists.

“We feel it’s not something that’s common in our space,” former defensive back Troy Vincent said Wednesday before the start of the NFL scouting combine.
