Biologists conducted an experiment on mice, which tried the drug for quick weight loss. The remedy makes certain groups of cells to produce more energy.
Morpholino (active substance) belongs to the group of synthetic oligonucletides. The connection is used in genetics to modify the activity of genes. One shot in the foot rodent increased heat buildup in this area and increased energy consumption.
Scientists have published the result of the experiment in the journal Molecular Therapy. With an abbreviated version of this article can be found on the pages of the magazine New Scientist.
Such experiments are important for finding promising methods of struggle against excess weight. Perhaps in the future the development of new methods of working for the people. Especially sharply this need experienced by people with obesity that is not amenable to standard methods of treatment.
