The big question for drugs like this is whether they don't just help muscle cells survive but cancer cells, too. That was the problem with fish oil supplements -- seemed to stop muscle wasting in one study but according to a lab study of biochemical products in mice models the interaction with platinum-based chemo created chemicals that might enable the cancer to resist the chemo. I think the researchers should be aware of this and may be able to comment on what has been seen in prior studies and pre-clinical research on that question.

Best hopes,
