    I would love to be a study for this new medication, it may not help me but it could possibly help someone else in the future.

      That is commendable, Margaret. Unfortunately, there is no immediate testing with humans scheduled at this time that we know of, but if this developed, we would post the information here on this blog.

    How would one go about being in a trial for this?

      Thank you for writing, Vickie. You’re not the first to ask how to participate in a trial for ghrelin! While the research we reported on is encouraging, unfortunately, as stated in this article, “drugs that work in mice often do not work the same way in people.” There is no immediate testing with humans scheduled at this time that we know of, but if this developed, we would post the information here on this blog.

    I think that is wonderful news. How long would the studies be on humans? I would love to try it. I would try anything. This COPD is nasty.

      It is indeed encouraging news, but unfortunately, as stated in this article, “drugs that work in mice often do not work the same way in people. Extensive testing in patients would be required to prove the value of this therapy.” There is no immediate testing with humans scheduled at this time that we know of, but if this developed, we would post the information here on this blog.
