Abstract

MARQUES, Marlice Aparecida Sipoli; PEREIRA, Henrique Marcelo Gualberto  and  AQUINO NETO, Francisco Radler de. Control of doping with anabolic agents: the steroid profile and its regulations. Rev Bras Med Esporte [online]. 2003, vol.9, n.1, pp. 15-24. ISSN 1517-8692.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-86922003000100004.

The concept of steroid profile is discussed in this paper. The main metabolic routes are presented. The importance of evaluating steroid profiles is demonstrated, with special attention to clinical medicine and sports. Parameters used in the literature for doping control of endogenous steroids are briefly evaluated, as well as the factors responsible for alterations in the normal steroid profile. Special focus is turned to the latter approach.
