New Drug Could Extend Exercize Endurance?


Researchers at the Scripps Research Institute in Florida say they've developed an experimental drug that could someday lead to improved exercise endurance.

They say it boosts metabolism in the liver.

Lab mice given the drug were able to run 50 percent faster and longer than mice who did not get the drug.

Researcher say the findings could eventually help people who have conditions like obesity and congestive heart failure – which limit the ability to exercise.
