Project: Development of a new and sensitive detection method for plasma-expanders

project duration
01-OCT-03 – 30-SEP-04
Plasma-expanders are a relatively new group of drugs that is misused in endurance sports. This is especially the case in the endurance sports where additional hematocrit controls occur. Research needs to be performed to develop a detection method for this type of substance because they appear on the list of prohibited substances and because of the health dangers associated with their misuse.
