Drug Testing Needs To Keep Pace
  • January 4th, 2009

Athletes have found ways to beat the system before with the help of scientists, who creates drugs that is undetectable.

But its the scientists no less, that found methods to identify such elusive drugs.

One such example drugs is benzothiazepines, a new drug, where it boost muscle endurance of an athlete.

Although benzothiazepines drug testing has yet to be done on human trials, it seems benzothiazepines might already be in the hands and being used by some drug cheats.

But is it a losing battle as it is said the sheer number of new drugs making it to the black market has increased.

It is reported for 10 blood boosting drugs out there, 1 could only be detected.

Well researchers have suggested to discourage such cheaters is to keep the sample urine of athletes for several years and testing it again once new drug testing method is developed.

Let’s hope sports in the coming years is ‘clean’ eh.
