7-methoxyflavone Overview

7-Methoxyflavone is a methylated flavonoid that can be synthesized chemically or obtained from extracts of Zornia brasiliensis and various plants belonging to the Meliaceae and Rutaceae families. This compound is of interest due to its potential impact on testosterone levels. It is believed to function by inhibiting the aromatase enzyme, which is responsible for converting testosterone and other androgens into estrogens. By blocking aromatase, 7-methoxyflavone may contribute to increased testosterone levels. Consequently, some supplement manufacturers have included 7-methoxyflavone in products marketed for its purported ability to enhance testosterone levels and improve athletic performance.

Epoetin Beta Overview

  • Methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta injection is used to treat anemia (a lower than normal number of red blood cells) in people with chronic kidney failure (condition in which the kidneys slowly and permanently stop working over a period of time) in adults on and not on dialysis and in children 5 years of age and older on dialysis who have already received another treatment for anemia. Methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta injection should not be used to treat anemia caused by cancer chemotherapy and should not be used in place of a red blood cell transfusion to treat severe anemia. Methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta injection is in a class of medications called erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs). It works by causing the bone marrow (soft tissue inside the bones where blood is made) to make more red blood cells.
