The effect of training, altitude exposure and athlete's sex on expression of genes know to change following autologous blood transfusion
Project Title: The effect of training, altitude exposure and an athlete’s sex on expression of genes known to change following autologous blood transfusion
Researchers: C. Gore (Australian Sports Commission, Belconnen, Australia), M. Ashenden (Science and Industry Against Blood-doping (SIAB) Research Consortium, Gold Coast, Australia), A. Hahn (Australian Institute of Sport Applied Research Centre, Canberra, Australia), J. Moerkeberg, R. Damsgaard, B. Belhage (Bispebjerg Hospital, Copenhagen, Denmark)
Year accepted: 2008
Summary: The aim of this study was to assess day-to-day variation of identified gene markers in blood samples from elite male and female athletes at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS), collected during both typical training regimens and altitude exposure, as a basis for evaluating the usefulness and limitations of using gene expression profiles as indirect markers of autologous transfusion.
