Leuprorelin Trial Results
Just thought I'd let everyone know that the MDA website ( has published the results of the Leuprorelin trial results earlier done in Japan.

Kinda disappointing but at the same time curious in that the point of the study focused on swallowing versus overall muscle improvement.

I guess it's even more disappointing for those of us who were wishing to enter next year's hot dog eating contest.

Luis, this was phase three of the trial. The first two phases were focused on overall health. It is my understanding that in the first two phases there appeared to be come benefit for swallowing so they decided to continue to the trial to see if it actually did benefit swallowing.

I believe you can still enter the contest. Just ask for the hot dogs to be pureed before hand.
