Potential form of treatment found effective for muscle atrophyA potential, new form of treatment has been identified to treat individuals afflicted with muscle atrophy. This finding was disclosed by an animal study that was presented at the Endocrine Society’s 91st Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

According to study co-author Andrea Graziani, PhD and molecular biologist with the Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine and the Biotechnology Center for Applied Medical Research, University of Piemonte Orientale, Novara, Italy, some of the presently prescribed treatment options for the complication include anabolic steroids (testosterone) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IFG-1) that may not be all that safe.

It was suggested by the researchers that des-acyl ghrelin, the appetite-stimulating hormone found in the body, could be useful as it offers a direct anti-atrophic activity on the skeletal muscle of mice for the complication that is usually caused injury to the nerves or fasting.

Natural hormone can guard muscle from atrophyA new treatment option was recently found by researchers to treat the common problem of muscle atrophy, as per results of an animal study that were presented at The Endocrine Society’s 91st Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

Some of the presently recommended options for treating muscle atrophy are anabolic steroids (testosterone) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IFG-1) but there have been some concerns about their usage due to safety and effectiveness, as per study co-author Andrea Graziani, PhD. and molecular biologist with the Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine and the Biotechnology Center for Applied Medical Research, University of Piemonte Orientale, Novara, Italy.

The review was supported by Italian agencies: Telethon, Regione Piemonte, and Italian Ministry for University and Research. The study findings were presented by Nicoletta Filigheddu, a researcher at the University of Piemonte Orientale’s Biotechnology Center.

Muscle get protected by natural hormone against atrophyDes-acyl ghrelin, a natural hormone, can be highly useful to protect muscle against atrophy. Though the protective mechanism is not yet known, it is distinct from the action of anabolic steroids and IGF-1.

This finding was presented at The Endocrine Society’s 91st Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. and was led by study co-author Andrea Graziani, PhD., and a molecular biologist with the Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine and the Biotechnology Center for Applied Medical Research, University of Piemonte Orientale, Novara, Italy.

Des-acyl ghrelin is a form of ghrelin, which is the appetite-stimulating hormone found in the body. It shares some biological activities with ghrelin like stimulating differentiation of other cells, including cells that are precursors to skeletal muscle cells.

Hormone stimulating appetite found useful for muscle atrophyA new treatment form has been identified to provide significant relief to people suffering from muscle atrophy, as per the results of an animal study that were presented at the Endocrine Society’s 91st Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

Study co-author Andrea Graziani, PhD, molecular biologist with the Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine and the Biotechnology Center for Applied Medical Research, University of Piemonte Orientale, Novara, Italy, said that some of the presently prescribed options including anabolic steroids (testosterone) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IFG-1) cannot be termed as completely safe.

The researchers noted that the appetite-stimulating hormone, des-acyl ghrelin, poses a direct anti-atrophic activity on mice’s skeletal muscle caused by fasting or nerve injury.

Muscle atrophy can be effectively cured with appetite-stimulating hormoneA new form of treatment with des-acyl ghrelin, an appetite-stimulating hormone, can prove to be effective when it comes to offering relief to patients suffering from muscle atrophy, as per results of an animal study that were presented at the Endocrine Society’s 91st Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

Muscular atrophy is a debilitating process that reduces quality of life besides resulting in extensive loss of muscle function and mass.

According to study co-author Andrea Graziani, PhD, molecular biologist with the Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine and the Biotechnology Center for Applied Medical Research, University of Piemonte Orientale, Novara, Italy, some of the currently recommended treatment options including anabolic steroids (testosterone) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IFG-1) cannot be termed as safe.

It was remarked by the involved researchers that the appetite stimulating hormone can be effective in providing a direct anti-atrophic activity on mice’s skeletal muscle that is caused by nerve injury or fasting.

Natural Hormone Can Replace Steroids In Treating Muscular AtrophyMuscular atrophy is a debilitating process that results in an extensive loss of muscle mass and function, which greatly worsens quality of life. It occurs in diseases such as cancer, diabetes, AIDS and heart failure, negatively affecting the patients’ prognosis. Also, muscular atrophy can occur with aging, inadequate food intake such as in anorexia nervosa, or as a side effect of glucocorticoid steroid therapy. Nerve injury also triggers severe muscular atrophy.

Researchers have found a potential new treatment for the common problem of muscle atrophy. There are few options to treat the problem, including anabolic steroids (testosterone) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IFG-1).

The researchers discovered that des-acyl ghrelin has a direct anti-atrophic activity on the skeletal muscle of mice with muscular atrophy caused by either nerve injury or fasting.
