Tesamorelin, a growth hormone-releasing hormone analogue, decreases visceral adipose tissue in people living with HIV.

Lean muscle increase

Compared to placebo, 26 weeks of tesamorelin was associated with significantly greater increases of total muscle density (less muscle fat) within all four truncal muscle groups (rectus abdominis, anterolateral abdominal, psoas major and paraspinal muscle groups, p < 0.005); Table 2. The largest net increase was observed within the rectus abdominis (3.5 HU) of the tesamorelin arm. Although increases were also seen in the lean component of muscle density, only differences in anterolateral abdominal muscles were significantly greater in the tesamorelin vs placebo arms (p<0.005) [1]

Multivariate analyses adjusted for baseline values + treatment arm, and then one additional variable (change in VAT or IGF-1) are shown in Table 4. Compared to placebo, tesamorelin resulted in significantly greater increases in muscle density across all total muscle groups and in the lean anterolateral/abdominal and rectus muscle, even after adjusting for differences at baseline. After adjusting for changes in VAT, changes in total muscle density of both the rectus and paraspinal muscles remained significant, while other total and lean muscle groups were attenuated and no longer significant. Lastly, adjustment for changes in IGF-1 slightly attenuated effects, but statistically significant effects persisted across most of the total (anterolateral/abdominal, rectus, paraspinal) and the anterolateral/abdominal lean muscle component. [1]

Tesamorelin & reduction in abdomen fat

In a preliminary study of HIV-infected patients with abdominal fat accumulation, tesamorelin administered for 6 months was associated with reductions in visceral fat and additionally with modest reductions in liver fat. Further studies are needed to determine the clinical importance and long-term consequences of these findings.

Improved cognition in adults over the age of 60


Twenty weeks of GHRH administration had favorable effects on cognition in both adults with MCI and healthy older adults. Longer-duration treatment trials are needed to further examine the therapeutic potential of GHRH administration on brain health during normal aging and “pathological aging.” [3]

Reduced Carotid Intima Media Size (cIMT)

The extent of intervention effects on cIMT progression predicted the degree of CVD risk reduction. This provides a missing link supporting the usefulness of cIMT progression as a surrogate marker for CVD risk in clinical trials. [4]

Tesamorelin reduces cholesterol & Triglyceride


Treatment with tesamorelin resulted in significant decreases in triglycerides (−37 ± 139 vs. 6 ± 112 mg/dl, P < 0.001; treatment effect, −12.3%) and cholesterol to high-density lipoprotein ratio (−0.18 ± 1.00 vs. 0.18 ± 0.94, P < 0.001; treatment effect, −7.2%) vs. placebo. Tesamorelin improved body image [belly appearance distress (P = 0.002)], patient rating of belly profile (P = 0.003), and physician rating of belly profile (P < 0.001). Mean IGF-I increased 108 ± 112 vs.−7 ± 64 ng/ml (P < 0.001 vs. placebo). At wk 52, decreases in VAT [−35 ± 50 cm2 (−17.5 ± 23.3%)], waist circumference (−3.4 ± 6.0 cm), triglycerides (−48 ± 182 mg/dl), cholesterol (−8 ± 38 mg/dl), and non-high-density lipoprotein (−7 ± 38 mg/dl) were maintained (all P < 0.001 vs. original baseline) in the T-T group. Treatment with tesamorelin was generally well tolerated. No clinically meaningful differences were observed between groups in glucose parameters at wk 26 and 52. [5]
