Increase Height And Grow Taller Using Faslodex

Me: I don’t think it can be any clearer from the last sentence of the paper but Faslodex injections can definitely lead to increased final height and longer growth time by acting as an estrogen blocking agent. The dosage of Faslodex used in the experiment was 100 microg/100 g body weight so for a person about 150 lb, that is about 68 milligrams of the Fasladex compound. So far I have not done any research to see what exactly is Faslodex but only know that it is an estrogen inhibiting agent.

Sex steroids accelerate bone maturation, but it is believed that estrogen action is needed for terminal epiphyseal fusion. In this study, we investigated the effects of a new estrogen-blocking agent, Faslodex (ICI 182,780), on estrogen-accelerated skeletal maturation in immature mice. On day-of-life 2 through 8, mice pups received either estradiol (5 microg/100 g body weight), Faslodex (100 microg/100 g body weight), a combination of Faslodex + estradiol, or vehicle alone. Skeletal maturation was assessed with a scoring system based on the size and appearance of epiphyseal plates in the forepaw and the lumbar spine. Estradiol caused acceleration of bone maturation in our mouse model (p < 0.05). Faslodex blocked the effect of estrogen, such that the mice receiving Faslodex + estradiol did not vary significantly from controls. Faslodex may prove useful in the treatment of patients with diseases causing rapid skeletal maturation, such as precocious puberty.
