ORX rats that were given GEB-L gained more body weight versus ORX-control, but not as much as normal-control.
The initial weight was measured on day of surgery (Ovx, Orx, or Sham) and the final weight on the day of sacrifice.
Orexo AB, with its headquarters in Sweden, is listed on NASDAQ-OMX (STO: ORX) and OTC market in the US (ORXOY).
Three days post-surgery when feed intake was normalized, initial body weight was taken and rats were assigned to one of the following five treatments: sham (control) group, orchidectomy (ORX), ORX + 200 ppm citrus crude extract, ORX + 200 ppm limonin, ORX + 200 ppm naringin for the duration of the 2 months study.
In addition, prepro-ORX mRNA and ORX-A in the pons and in the preoptic/anterior hypothalamic area increase during the dark hours and decrease during the day in lab rats, suggesting a role of ORX in the regulation of the sleep/wake cycle (Taheri et al., 2000).
Results: ORX did not affect red blood cell (RBC)-induced hemolysis despite lowering (p < 0.05) plasma antioxidant capacity; reduced (p < 0.05) plasma IGF-I, femoral density, femoral strength, time-induced femoral fracture, bone mineral content, bone mineral area; numerically (p = 0.07) lowered 4th lumbar density; decreased (p < 0.05) trabecular connectivity, trabecular number, femoral ash; increased (p < 0.05) trabecular separation in comparison to the SHAM group.
