Resource description

Project Title: Alternative steroid profile

Researchers: F.T. Delbeke, P. Van Eenoo (Ghent University, DoCoLab, Ghent, Belgium), W. Schänzer (German Sport University, Cologne, Germany)

Year accepted: 2005

Summary: This study proves the usefulness of minor steroid metabolites in steroid profiling as well as the relevance of direct individual monitoring of steroid profiles of athletes in the biological passport concept. The detection sensitivity of steroid profile screening can be substantially enhanced leading undoubtedly to more confirmable positive urine samples for misuse with endogenous steroids.
