To make this discovery, Gassmann and colleagues used three types of mice: those that received no treatment, those that were injected with human Epo, and those that were genetically modified to produce human Epo in the brain. Compared to the mice that did not have any increase in Epo, both mouse groups harboring human Epo in the brain showed significantly higher running performance without increases in red blood cells.

One thing about these so called ''exercise pills" if ever fully implemented and that is even if they could help the body for health akin to exerising they'll never be able to replace the endorphinic effect that one gets from actual exercise. Sometimes when i go to the gym and just for a 30 min high intensity weight lifting workout or when running stadiums at the local high school football staium when finished i'm as high as kite with the surging endorphins.

So for disabled or very old people then yeah sure this would be good for them.

This isn't a pill to replace exercise. It's a pill to increase the desire for exercising. Which, for highly unmotivated people (like with depression), it could be helpful.
