... Hello everyone, Has anyone heard any updates (or have first hand information) on the clinical trials Wyeth performed last year for MYO-029 (myostatin blocker)? I was hoping that they would have mentioned something about the results in their second quarter financial results yesterday, but they didn't.

... I was wonderig if anyone has read anything about ACVR2B? It is a myostatin inhibitor that seems to work about 3 times as good as MYO-029. In 2005 Wyeth was doing clinical trials with mice, and found this out, while at the same time, they were doing human trials of the MYO-029. I wonder if that discovery is what is delaying the announcement on the MYO-029 results? You can... (9 replies)

I contacted Acceleron, as I'm interested in being involved in their clinical trials.... (15 replies)
... Mark Thank you for your response. She has LGMD2B. Both my aunt and uncle are carriers. They were checked. After speaking w/ my aunt I understand that she is doing physical therapy occassionally but doesn't want to commit. She's young and wants her life. Understandable in a way. She also is on vitamins and creatine. She told me they didn't do anything anyway. She... (5 replies)
