AOD9604 is a peptide (a chain of amino acids). AOD stands for “Anti Obesity Drug”. This peptide has an amino acid sequence that mimics the lipolytic region of human growth hormone (the region of this hormone thought to be responsible for burning fat) and it has been promoted variously as a weight loss supplement, as an aid to muscle and cartilage repair, and a treatment for osteoarthritis. It is also known as lipotropin and Tyr-hGH fragment.
