CEDAR KNOLLS, NJ -- (MARKETWIRE) -- 04/01/13 -- MYOS Corporation (OTCBB: MYOS), a company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of muscle health nutritional supplements, functional foods, and therapeutic products, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and twelve months ended December 31, 2012.
"The successful launch of our first product through the distribution agreement we signed during 2012 and the recently released positive study results confirming the beneficial effect of MYO-T12 on suppressing myostatin levels have established a solid foundation for future growth at MYOS," said Glen Fleischer, Chief Executive Officer of MYOS. "Sales data from our distribution partner strengthens our belief in the strong growth potential for MYO-T12 formulations, the first clinically-demonstrated natural myostatin inhibitor.
"During the year ahead we will continue to build on this foundation as we work toward our goal of sustainable and accelerated revenue growth. Currently, we are actively pursuing three critical initiatives, and working in parallel to insulate our business from competition through strong, comprehensive layers of intellectual property protection. The critical initiatives are: 1) significantly advance the science behind MYO-T12 to demonstrate efficacy in chronic clinical studies with leading academic institutions, 2) refine and optimize the product through advanced food science coupled with our expertise in protein chemistry, all in close proximity to the core consumer target for muscle health products, and 3) secure an advantaged supply chain with the capacity and cost structure to fully support our future revenue growth as an emerging muscle science company."
