Impact of cryopreservation on red blood cell function- New strategies to detect autologous blood doping
Project Title: Impact of cryopreservation on red blood cell function- New strategies to detect autologous blood doping
Researchers: Dr. M. Grau, Dr. W. Bloch
Institution: German Sport University, Germany
Year accepted: 2015
Summary: The aim of the study is to investigate the impacts of cryopreservation on RBC deformability and associated nitric oxide signaling pathways. We hypothesize an impact of cryopreservation on these parameters. Thus, the investigation of RBC function and related cellular pathways seems to be a promising attempt in order to detect autologous blood doping.
