Thymosin Alpha-1

Thymosin Alpha-1 is a major component of Thymosin Fraction 5 found in the thymus. The thymus is responsible for regulating the immune system. Thymosin Alpha-1 is prescribed to optimize the performance of your immune health and improve general wellness by preventing infections such as the common cold or the flu. It acts to augment T-cell function; T-cells are a part of the adaptive immune system which fights off infection. It is best prescribed to be taken once daily until vial is empty.

How does Thymosin Alpha-1 work?
T-cells come in two forms: killer and helper cells. Killer T-cells are responsible for hunting down and destroying our body’s own cells that are cancerous or infected with bacteria or viruses. TA-1 is thought to modulate the immune system by augmenting T-cell function. TA-1 may affect thymocytes by stimulating their differentiation or by converting them to active T-cells.

What forms of Thymosin Alpha-1 are available?
TA-1 is available reconstituted for subcutaneous injection.

What you need to know about Thymosin Alpha-1
Thymosin Alpha-1 appears to be well tolerated. No adverse drug interaction has been observed. No side effects, other than some irritation or burning sensation at the site of injection, have been reported.

Benefits of Thymosin Alpha-1
Thymosin Alpha-1 has been shown to exhibit antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties, increase vaccine effectiveness, suppress tumor growth, enhance the function of certain immune cells, help eradicate unhealthy cells, stop infection or cancer growth, strengthen your immune system, and improve symptoms associated with chronic fatigue.

Thymosin Beta-4

Thymosin Beta-4 has been found to play an important role in protection, regeneration, and remodeling on injured or damaged tissue. Thymosin is a hormone secreted from the thymus. The thymus is responsible for regulating the immune system and tissue repair. Thymosin Beta-4 is prescribed for acute injury, surgical repair, and patients that were once athletes and accumulated injuries over time. It acts as a major actin-sequestering molecule and can be taken after cardiac injury for better healing of the tissue in the heart. It is best prescribed to be taken once daily for 20 days.

How does Thymosin Beta-4 work?
Thymosin Beta-4 is typically found in both types of muscle in the human body – skeletal (the muscles that are required to move) and smooth (muscles such as those in the heart). When damage to the tissue occurs, Thymosin Beta-4 is upregulated. It is released in the body to help people heal from traumas. In the process of healing from injury, it also acts to reduce the amount of scar tissue and improve flexibility. It also has potent anti-inflammatory properties. Its primary function is to stimulate the production of T cells, which are an important part of the immune system. Thymosin also assists in the development of B cells to plasma cells to produce antibodies. Thymosin Beta-4 is a member of a highly conserved family of actin monomer-sequestering proteins. In addition to its role as a major actin-sequestering molecule, Thymosin Beta-4 has a role in tissue repair.

Benefits of Thymosin Beta-4
Thymosin Beta-4 has been shown to calm muscle spasms, improve muscle tone, increase exchange of substances between cells, encourage tissue repair, help maintain flexibility, reduce inflammation of tissue in joints, encourage the growth of new blood cells in tissue, increase endurance and strength, and prevent the formation of adhesions and fibrous bands in muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Melanotan I
Melanotan I and Melanotan II are both analogs of the peptide hormone alpha-melanocyte- stimulating hormone (a-MSH) that induces skin tanning. Like its predecessor, Melanotan I, MT-II plays a role in stimulating melanogenesis and thus provides a protective mechanism against UV rays, since under its actions, melanocytes are able to increase production and secretion of the hormone melanin. Scientists have also noticed that MT 2 had a positive effect on libido due to its aphrodisiac properties. Additionally, MT 2 exhibits a mild positive fat-mobilizing effects. Melanotan I is an FDA approved drug under the brand name Scenesse. Scenesse is most used to treat patients that have an intolerance to light.

Clinical Research
A pilot phase I study was conducted with a cyclic heptapeptide analog of alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (alpha MSH). The lactam-bridged molecule, called Melanotan II (MT-II), has the structure of AC-Nle4-Asp5-His6-DPhe7-Arg8-Trp9-Lys10 alpha-MSH4-10-NH2 (MT-II) and has super potent melanotropic activity in vitro. A single-blind, alternating day (saline or MT-II), placebo-controlled trial was conducted in 3 normal male volunteers starting at the dose of 0.01 mg/kg of MT-II. Subcutaneous injections of MT-II or saline were given daily (Monday-Friday) for 2 consecutive weeks. Two subjects were escalated by 0.005 mg/kg increments to 0.03 mg/kg and one to 0.025 mg/kg. The 0.03 mg/kg dose produced Grade II somnolence and fatigue in one of two subjects (WHO standards). Mild nausea, not requiring antiemetic treatment, was reported at more MT-II dose levels. A stretching and yawning complex appeared to correlate with the onset of spontaneous, Penile erections which were intermittently experienced for 1-5 hours after MT-II dosing, depending on the MT-II dose. Two subjects had increased pigmentation in the fact, upper body, and buttock, as measured by quantitative reflectance and by visual perception 1 week after MT-II dosing ended. These results demonstrate that MT-II has tanning activity in humans given only 5 low dose every other day by subcutaneous injection. The recommended single MT-II dose for future Phase I studies is 0.025 mg/kg / day.
