abstract
The use of several blood doping agents results in changes of hemaotological parameters. Several of these substances cannot be detected directly in urine or blood. The changes in bloodprameters however might offer an opportunity to detct misuse by this substances, e.g. changes in hematocrit are already used to give a suspension in several sports. This research will try to find additional parameters and extend the knowledge on the parameters already in use.
