Development of tests for detecting hypoxia-inducible gene doping to enhance athletic performance
Project Title: Development of tests for detecting hypoxia-inducible gene doping to enhance athletic performance
Researchers: S. Lahiri, T.S. Khurana
Institution: University of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania, USA
Year accepted: 2007
Summary: We propose to develop a robust and standardized, blood-based test using 'molecular signatures' of hypoxia that will detect all the different forms (of small molecule and gene-based) hypoxia-induced gene doping that are currently in use (or likely to be developed in the near future) with great sensitivity and specificity to serve this need.
