CEDAR KNOLLS, NJ--(Marketwired - May 11, 2015) - MYOS Corporation ("MYOS" or the "Company") (
In this double blind placebo controlled clinical study, 80 subjects will be randomized to four groups who will be supplemented with three different doses of Fortetropin® and a matching placebo. The study will examine the effect of various doses of Fortetropin® on plasma levels of myostatin and compare them to placebo.
Robert Ashton, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of MYOS, commented, "This study continues to build upon our current knowledge of Fortetropin®, a natural myostatin modulator that has been proven to enhance muscle growth. It is our hypothesis that lowering dosing levels will allow Fortetropin® to be formulated into new products and modes of delivery."
Dr. Wilson commented, "Our team is very excited to continue studying Fortetropin® in our human performance laboratory."
