DETECTION OF HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE ABUSE IN SPORT
Dallas, Texas – April 2004
The purpose of the 3rd Annual USADA Symposium on Anti-Doping Science was to discuss the detection of hGH. Two approaches to detection have been developed: detection of the physiological isoforms of hGH and detection of serum markers of hGH use. The goal of the meeting was to arrive at a consensus on the soundness of the scientific foundation for detection of hGH as used to enhance sport performance.
