AOD9604 – Description

AOD9604 is a synthetic peptide fragment derived from the C-terminus of human growth hormone (hGH), specifically comprising amino acids 177-191. It has garnered interest in scientific research due to its potential effects on fat metabolism and obesity. Unlike hGH, AOD9604 is designed to exhibit lipolytic activity without the growth-promoting effects associated with full-length growth hormone.

Key Features and Mechanism of Action

  1. Fat Metabolism: AOD9604 has been shown to stimulate lipolysis (the breakdown of fat) and inhibit lipogenesis (the formation of fat). This dual action makes it a candidate for research into obesity and related metabolic disorders.
  2. Safety Profile: Unlike full-length hGH, AOD9604 does not appear to affect insulin sensitivity or promote cell proliferation, making it potentially safer for long-term use in obesity treatment .
  3. Oral and Injectable Forms: AOD9604 has been studied in both oral and injectable forms, which is relevant for its potential use in clinical settings and offers versatility in administration routes for research purposes .

Research Applications

  1. Obesity and Weight Loss: The primary area of research for AOD9604 is its potential to aid in weight loss by enhancing fat metabolism. Studies have focused on its ability to reduce body fat in animal models and human trials .
  2. Metabolic Disorders: Beyond obesity, AOD9604 is being explored for its effects on metabolic parameters such as cholesterol levels and blood glucose, which are often altered in metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes .
  3. Cartilage and Joint Repair: There is emerging interest in the potential regenerative effects of AOD9604 on cartilage and joint tissues, although this is a less established area of research compared to its metabolic effects .

Preclinical and Clinical Research

  1. Animal Studies: In animal models, AOD9604 has demonstrated significant reductions in body fat without adverse effects on glucose metabolism or organ health. These studies provide foundational data supporting its lipolytic properties and safety profile .
  2. Human Trials: Clinical trials in humans have shown promising results in terms of weight loss and improved metabolic profiles. One notable study demonstrated that AOD9604 could reduce body fat in overweight and obese individuals without significant side effects .
