Pharmacological cheating in sports is not a new phenomenon. Unfortunately, the modern era has witnessed explosive growth in new and different ways to achieve false victory. Advances in biochemistry, medicine, and other fields have benefited humanity in countless ways. Sadly, however, some have abused these advances for, “pursuit of victory at all cost”. A recent article by Dr. Timothy Noakes (1) highlights the breadth and depth of the problem. He discusses several “cheating venues”, but for this article I wish to focus on one, erythropoietin.
Erythropoietin (pronounced, ah-rith-ro-poy-tin, and abbreviated, EPO) is a relatively recent entry into the deceitful pursuit of glory. EPO is a protein hormone produced by the kidney. After being released into the blood stream it binds with receptors in the bone marrow, where it stimulates the production of red blood cells (erythrocytes). Medically, EPO is used to treat certain forms of anemia (e.g., due to chronic kidney failure). Logically, since EPO accelerates erythrocyte production it also increases oxygen carrying capacity. This fact did not long escape notice of the athletic community.
Structural Characteristics :
Erythropoietins available for use externally for medical purpose are produced using recombinant DNA technology. Isolation and synthesis of this hormone is very useful for performance enhancing purpose. Structurally this hormone is a single chain of polypeptide containing 165 amino acids. Exogenous EPO taken for strength and performance enhancing purpose is classified as erythropoiesis-stimulating agent (ESA) but can be detected in blood tests due to difference from endogenous one. Hemax (EPO) became famous in 1998 after many positive doping results during Tour de France.
Hemax can be stacked with HGH like Glonotropin, instead of taken individually. To get best result effective dosages of both hormones must be injected. It is safe to inject Hemax while taking Anabolic /Androgenic steroid such as Testosterone, Nandrolone etc.
Hemax is generally used for treatment of anaemia resulting from chronic kidney failure, inflammatory bowel disease, and myelodysplasia. It is generally injected subcutaneously or intra venous.For performance enhancing purpose recommended dosage is 15-50 U /Kg of body weight. This comes out to be 1000 -4000 IU per injection every 3-4 days. The dosage should be started 7-10 days before the event so that the peak activity is reached around the event.
