Development of pharmacotherapies for the treatment of sarcopenia

Rooks, Daniel and Roubenoff, Ronenn (2019) Development of pharmacotherapies for the treatment of sarcopenia. Journal of Frailty and Aging.


The review briefly summarizes the definition of sarcopenia and commonly used assessments and provides information on preclinical studies and clinical trial findings of the more advanced drug development programs for the treatment of muscle wasting, including the bimagrumab program. No data have been included in this article that have not already been published (and approved) in article or abstract format. In addition, we discuss several related issues that are needed to facilitate the development of a safe and efficacious pharmacotherapeutic that could be used as part of a treatment plan for older men and women with sarcopenia.
