Treating muscle loss in older adults

What we are studying

The purpose of this study is to see if an investigational medicine called BIO101 could be used to treat sarcopenia, including sarcopenic obesity, in the elderly. Sarcopenia is characterized by a progressive loss of muscle mass and decreased muscle capacity, which appears around age fifty and involves an increased risk of falls and fractures.
