CEDAR KNOLLS, NJ--(Marketwired - Jun 11, 2015) - MYOS Corporation ("MYOS" or the "Company") (
MYOS' proprietary, core muscle-building technology, Fortetropin®, is based on fertilized egg yolk that is processed using patented technologies that maintain the bioactivity of its proteo-lipid complex. Clinical studies have demonstrated that a daily dose of Fortetropin® in conjunction with modest resistance training leads to significant gains in lean muscle mass and muscle size.
Neerav D. Padliya, Ph.D., Vice President, Analytical Development at MYOS, commented, "An important research focus of MYOS has been to elucidate the molecular changes that take place in an egg yolk upon fertilization. Understanding these changes could potentially lead to the development of therapeutics to address muscle wasting diseases such as sarcopenia and cachexia. Initial results from our research revealed differential expression of a number of important proteins in the egg yolk upon fertilization. We are continuing this research with the goal of identifying differentially expressed proteins and lipids in the fertilized egg yolk involved in the growth and development of muscle tissue."
Robert J. Hariri, M.D., Ph.D., Chairman of MYOS, commented, "Since MYOS' inception, the company has been committed to building a solid scientific foundation supporting the unique biochemical properties and activities of Fortetropin®. This remains an important focus area for MYOS as it continues its efforts to develop novel therapeutics to address the enormous unmet medical needs of patients around the world suffering from muscle related diseases."

About MYOS Corporation
MYOS is an emerging biotherapeutics and bionutrition company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of products that improve muscle health and function essential to the management of sarcopenia, cachexia and degenerative muscle diseases. MYOS is the owner of Fortetropin®, the first clinically proven natural myostatin inhibitor. Myostatin is a natural regulatory protein, which inhibits muscle growth and recovery. Medical literature suggests that lowering myostatin levels has many potential health benefits including increased muscle mass, healthy weight management, improved energy levels, stimulation of muscle healing as well as treating sarcopenia, a condition of age-related loss of muscle mass.
