Oral Presentation Will Highlight Positive Impact of Fortetropin® on Stimulating Muscle Protein Synthesis in Clinical Trial at University of California, Berkeley

CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., Nov. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MYOS RENS Technology Inc. ("MYOS" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: MYOS), an advanced nutrition company and the owner of Fortetropin, a proprietary bioactive composition made from fertilized egg yolk that helps build lean muscle, announced today that an abstract based on the results from a clinical trial evaluating the impact of Fortetropin on the rate of muscle protein synthesis in older men and women has been accepted for an oral presentation at the upcoming International Conference on Frailty and Sarcopenia Research ("ICFSR") that will take place in Toulouse, France (https://frailty-sarcopenia.com/) on March 11, 2020 at 12:15 pm.  The presentation, entitled "Effects of Fortetropin on the Rate of Muscle Protein Synthesis in Older Men and Women: A Randomized, Double-Blinded Control Study," will be given by the Principal Investigator of the study, William J. Evans, Ph.D., Adjunct Professor of Nutrition at the University of California, Berkeley.

In this clinical study, 20 subjects, men and women 60 to 75 years of age, consumed either Fortetropin or a macronutrient-matched placebo for 21 days along with daily doses of a heavy water tracer. After 21 days, a muscle biopsy was collected from each subject and analyzed to determine the average muscle protein synthesis rate. For subjects who received Fortetropin, the average muscle protein synthesis rate was significantly higher compared to the placebo group.

Muscle loss represents one of the most important causes of functional decline and loss of independence in older adults. Age-related muscle loss (sarcopenia) is commonly observed in many older adults and is also characterized by a decrease in the rate of muscle protein synthesis. In addition, low muscle mass is associated with increased risk of hip fracture and disability. Fortetropin was shown to increase the average muscle protein synthesis rate, providing the potential to improve muscle health among older adults. There are very limited options available to address age-related muscle loss. Geriatricians commonly manage this through lifestyle interventions such as diet and exercise.

"This study shows Fortetropin's remarkable potential for managing age-related muscle loss in older adults.  The ICFSR is the most important medical conference in the world focused on highlighting advances in sarcopenia research.  We feel truly honored that research highlighting the clinical impact of Fortetropin will be presented for the first time at this meeting.  The results from this clinical study will form the cornerstone of MYOS' 'Healthy Aging' Business," commented Joseph Mannello, Chief Executive Officer of Myos.

"I look forward to sharing the exciting results from this clinical study with the scientific community at the ICFSR meeting," commented Dr. Evans, a key opinion leader in sarcopenia. "Fortetropin clearly has a robust effect on the rate of muscle protein synthesis in older adults. It is rare for a nutrition product to show such a consistent and positive effect. We look forward to continued scientific collaboration with MYOS."
