Comments
This drug is a stabilized synthetic peptide analogue of the hypothalamic peptide GHRH. The approved formulation is the acetate salt. As with many peptide molecules there is some ambiguity in the literature and on online rescources as to the exact structure and stereochemistry of tesamorelin, therefore we have chosen not to include a chemical structure here. Please see the links above to PubChem, ChEMBL and ChEBI for alternative representations of the structure.
