    The anabolic effect of GSK20881078: human study
    By: Ergo-Log

    In January 2018 we wrote about the SARM GSK20881078, which researchers at GlaxoSmithKline are now testing on humans. Doping hunters keep a close eye on GSK20881078, and have already developed a test for it. [Eur J Mass Spectrom (Chichester). 2018 Feb;24(1):145-56.] The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism will soon publish a human study, which for the first time gives an idea of the anabolic effect of GSK20881078 in humans. However, the study also suggests that GSK20881078 may have serious side effects.

    The researchers gave GSK20881078 to 100 healthy over-50s for 8 weeks. The subjects were both male and female, and received different doses.

    The men who took 4 milligrams of GSK20881078 every day gained one and a half kilos of lean body mass over a period of 8 weeks. Women who used 1.5 milligrams of GSK2088078 daily, gained 3 kilos of lean body mass.

    GSK2088078 works. But it seems that GSK2088078 may also have some serious side effects. The amount of total testosterone in the men went back two-thirds during their SARM treatment. Two weeks after the end of the course the testosterone levels had not yet recovered.

    Something similar is the case with free testosterone, although the matter is more subtle there.

    Also take a look at the effect on the HDL mirror. It drops by 30-45 percent. Oi.

    The side effects above are measured midway through the cycle. What the side effects are after 8 weeks, we do not know, when the cycle had ended. The researchers, who have been paid by or even work at the company that wants to put GSK2088078 on the market, have not measured it. Or they would rather not tell us.

    "GSK20881078 was found to produce potentially clinically significant increases in lean mass with a differential dose response between sexes," the researchers write. "Changes in clinical chemistry were consistent with those previously reported for other SARs and were relatively mild, monitorable, and reversible in nature."

    "Further research is now planned to study the effects of the lean mass gains observed."

    An anticipatory hmm...
    If GSK20881078 will soon appear on the black market - undoubtedly with imaginative names such as GeSKadrol-1078 or GeSKavar - we honestly expect that this SARM will have serious side effects. If at a dosage of 4 milligrams of GSK20881078 the HDL level decreases by 40 percent within 4 weeks, what happens when a cycle of 8 weeks with a daily dose of 20 milligrams?

      Test for doping with YK11

      About five years ago YK11 came on the market: a steroid-like substance developed by Japanese scientists with an anabolic effect. YK11 is a SARM, but also a myostatin inhibitor. It became popular as a research chemical and 'rogue supplement'. German doping hunters from the German Sport University Cologne have developed a doping test for this curious substance.

      Concern has arisen regarding the presence and persistence of trenbolone in the environment. Trenbolone acetate is an anabolic steroid used to promote growth in beef cattle. It is hydrolyzed to the active compound, 17beta-trenbolone (TB), which is also one of the metabolites...

    • Plasma steroid-binding proteins: primary gatekeepers of steroid hormone action.
      by WesleyInman


      Biologically active steroids are transported in the blood by albumin, sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), and corticosteroid-binding globulin (CBG). These plasma proteins also regulate the non-protein-bound or 'free' fractions of circulating steroid hormones that are considered to be biologically active; as such, they can be viewed as the 'primary gatekeepers of steroid action'. Albumin binds steroids with limited specificity and low affinity, but its high concentration...

      Transgender Boxer (Female to Male) Patricio Manuel Makes History with First Pro Win

      Los Angeles (AFP) – Transgender boxer Patricio Manuel made history Saturday with a unanimous decision victory over Mexican super-featherweight Hugo Aguilar in Indio, California.

      Manuel, 33, became the first transgender male to fight professionally in the United States.

      “I wouldn’t trade any of it. It was worth everything I went through to get to this point,” Manuel said,
