What is GTx-026
GTx, Inc recently publicized the results of a study regarding the potential efficacy of their selective androgen receptor modulator or SARM, GTx-026, in terms of treating Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).
The study is entitled, “Androgen Receptor Agonists Increase Lean Mass, Improve Cardiopulmonary Functions, and Extend Survival in Preclinical Models of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy” and was published in the journal Human Molecular Genetics.
The results of the study suggested that the SARM GTx-026 can be a more suitable treatment option for DMD compared to corticosteroids without the side effects arising from the long-term use of the same. Clinical research shows that although corticosteroids are effective in alleviating inflammation, continued use of the same can lead to other health issues like osteoporosis, hyperglycemia and muscle wasting.
Ramesh Narayanan, Ph.D., associate professor, Department of Medicine, University of Tennessee, director of the Center for Cancer Drug Discovery, and a consultant of the biotechnology company based in Memphis, Tennessee, United States, emphasized that GTx-026 is displaying positive effects that not just promise to help extend the survival of boys afflicted with DMD, but also reverse musculoskeletal complications that they may be going through.
Selective androgen receptor modulators or SARMs are basically special ligands that set off beneficial effects akin to the use of anabolic steroids when introduced into the body. These effects include increasing muscle mass and enhancing bone density. These compounds are also seen as a potential treatment for stress urinary incontinence in postmenopausal women.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) affects approximately 18,000 boys between 3 to 5 years old in the United States. It is characterized by musculoskeletal and cardiopulmonary complications and is caused by mutations in dystrophin, which is a protein that helps keep the muscles cells together. It is not uncommon that boys afflicted with this illness are at risk of respiratory and cardiac issues.
If GTx-026’s performance keeps up after the preclinical phase, this SARM could possibly revolutionize DMD treatment.
UPDATE (10-28-2019) – SARMS UNDER ATTACK
Unfortunately, most of our SARM products are being shut down for an unknown about of time. It's prohormones and SARMs that are being targeted.
Luckily, we're working with top secret suppliers that can get us the most hard core supplements yet.
Join the list because we'll ONLY be selling INVITATION ONLY through special links in the future.[mailmunch-form id="836268"]
Best Alternative: Right now, if you still want to purchase liquid or powder SARMs, we know a great company called SARMS4YOU that can ship super high-quality SARMs anywhere in the world. They have great customer service I’ve used them for years.
But I’d suggest you stock up on them NOW.
