Considered the largest event in anti-aging medicine, the World Congress is expected to draw approximately 4,000 Medical Professionals and 300 Exhibitors from around the world.
Earlier this year, MYOS announced that in a clinical trial involving 60-75-year-old men and women, subjects who consumed Fortetropin on a daily basis experienced an increase of approximately 15% in the rate of muscle protein synthesis when compared with subjects who received a macronutrient-matched placebo. The results from this clinical trial will be presented by its principal investigator, William J. Evans, Ph.D., Adjunct Professor of Nutrition, University of California, Berkeley at the International Conference on Frailty & Sarcopenia Researchon March 11, 2020 in Toulouse, France.
Encouraged by positive results from this clinical study and previous studies showing that Fortetropin increases muscle mass and strength, MYOS decided to formally launch its longevity business by introducing its branded product, Physician Muscle Health Formula®. This product will be distributed through medical practices focused on anti-aging medicine across the United States. In addition, the Company will also debut a private labeling service. This service will enable physicians to develop their own Fortetropin-based nutrition products in consultation with the Company's scientists and engineers, leveraging our portfolio of scientific research and clinical trials. Members of MYOS' scientific and business development staff will be at the Company's booth (#2090) to meet with medical professionals and discuss opportunities for collaboration.
"Fortetropin has remarkable potential to improve human longevity and we are pleased to share our advancements on improving muscle health at the upcoming World Congress on Anti-Aging Medicine later this week," commented Joseph Mannello, CEO of MYOS. "Maintaining muscle mass and health plays a vital role in supporting an excellent quality of life as we get older and has been shown in numerous respected publications to be associated with improved longevity. Muscle plays a central role in movement, energy metabolism and bone health. The beauty of MYOS' approach to addressing muscle health is that our products are all-natural nutrition products that capitalize on a patented manufacturing process and are backed by a large body of preclinical and human clinical research," added Mr. Mannello.
