... MYO-029 is a medicine. Let me try to explain MYO-029. I'll try to keep it simple. First, do an Internet Image search on "Belgian Blue Cattle" and also "Myostatin Mighty Mice" These pictures will show you what happens if an animal is born WITHOUT myostatin. Myostatin is a substance in your body that keeps your muscles from growing huge and out of control. Next, do an... (42 replies)
... Hello, First thing is first. I am 24 and was diagnosed with FSH in 2002. My father and younger brother both have FSH and are barely ambulatory. Fortunately, I have excellent strength and mobility due to the late onset of my disease progression. I, like everyone else, are awaiting the results of myo-029 and waiting for ace-031 to begin phase 1 of their trials. I have two... (42 replies)
... Hi Allan, The Jain Foundation is specifically concentrating on the 2 types of Muscular Dystrophies that are caused by Dysferlin deficiency. This would be Miyoshi Myopathy and LGMD2B. I am sure like us, they are hoping that MYO-029 can help that type of MD as well as many others. Mark (42 replies)

... There have been a few bits and pieces of information lately, most recently in MDA's Autumn Quest publication, viewable online. It seems that more than one researcher believes that MYO-029 by itself is not going to block myostatin production. They believe that there is another force at work, and the 2 forces must work together to block myostatin (and allow muscle to grow more... (42 replies)
... Allen, To answer your question 3 or 4 posts up...the drug was administered by IV every 2 weeks. At least this is what I understand. I applied for the trial in Feb of 2005 and received all the info, but in the end I wasn't chosen :( Anyway, the subject might be moot for now. There seems to be both hopeful and non-hopeful news coming out of the study. MDA Quest magazine... (42 replies)

... 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)?

... Hi everyone, I live in Croatia, and I had very hard time to get my diagnosis confirmed. It took for about 10 years of wondering, changing doctors, surfing the web, etc. First they taught it was Becker, then they sent my blood to France and after some waiting results came out - LGMD2A. Last month I sent an e-mail to the Wyeth to see what is going on with myo-029 and they... (42 replies)

... I contacted my doctor today and he said the "results of the paper have been published and unfortunately there were no clinical benefits". What exactly this means I do not know. I have not read the results yet but thought I would comment on what I heard. (42 replies)
... After reading the results I withdraw my previous post except that I guess we can hope for Ace-031 to work or the link that discuss genetic therapy..thank god we have viruses (42 replies)
... Allan1970. That is bad news though shouldnt be of too much surprise. Research has shown that simply inhibiting myostatin is not enough. Maybe wyeth thought the Ace-031 product might eventually take over because of its predicted success. Why go for something that will probably be overtaken in the not so distant future?
