The research compound Tesamorelin was development in Canada and is included in the class of synthetic hormones known to be growth hormone releasing. These are peptides that consist of 44 amino acids. The mass of Tesamorelin is 5135.86 g/ mol, and the formula is C221H366N72O67S.
It has an amino acid structure similar to Aspardic acid, Fenylalanine, Asparagine, and others in the group. The common trade name is Egrifta, and it is known to stimulate receptors that initiate the release of hormones. It also binds these receptors that are similar in potency. It behaves as a hypothalamic peptide, meaning it improves the manufacture and release of growth hormones.
The white powder version of Tesamorelin is available with a high level of purity. Its current use is strictly for testing in laboratory trials and research. The lipolytic and anabolic effects are not currently being fully studies, but future potential for the treatment of disease is great.
More recent studies have shown an effect on the pituitary somatotroph cells, and this may be tested in further research as well.
