Delaying the Effects of Aging Through Safe Hormonal Therapy

July 7, 2017

A group of Spanish researchers has developed the basis of a new model to better classify patients when it comes to prescribing anabolic hormone supplementation.

A researcher from Faculty of Sciences for Physical Activity and Sport (INEF) at UPM engaged in a research project that shows the role of muscular function in the correlation between the hormonal status and hospitalization and mortality risk. As a result of the Toledo Study for Healthy Aging, researchers have designed a clinical method to classify patients that can receive hormonal therapy safely to mitigate the negative effects of aging.
