CEDAR KNOLLS, NJ--(Marketwire - Oct 15, 2012) - MYOS Corporation (OTCBB: MYOS), a company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of therapeutic products that improve muscle health and performance, announced today the filing of a new patent application to help prevent or ameliorate the loss of lean muscle mass in both normal and chronically ill individuals with the use of MYO-T12®.
MYOS believes that its leading product MYO-T12 is the first dietary supplement of its kind. MYO-T12 reversibly suppresses the activity of myostatin, a natural regulatory protein which inhibits the growth and proliferation of muscle cells in response to exercise or injury. MYOS is committed to its on-going research evaluating the therapeutic uses and benefits of this dietary supplement and is looking forward to publishing the results of this work in the future.
"Patent counsel Jura Zibas of the national law firm Wilson Elser commented, "MYOS Corporation's growing portfolio of patents will be central to the future of the company, which is focused on improving health and performance of the vitally important muscular system."
Peter Levy, Chief Operating Officer of MYOS, said, "Advancing earlier-stage research programs is essential to ensuring sustained long-term growth and development of our intellectual property portfolio and life cycle management of these important assets. We are hopeful that these efforts create additional innovative intellectual property, enhancing value for our company and our stakeholders, and making MYOS more attractive to the investor community."
