Abstract

Objective: To detect exogenous recombinant human GH (rhGH) abuse in female athletes. Design: GH-dependent markers were assayed in serum of 100 female athletes (control group) and in a subgroup of nine female subjects treated with rhGH (0.09 IU/kg body weight, 6 days/week for 3 weeks). Methods: Cut-off values (mean + 2 S.D.) for IGF1, N-terminal propeptide of type III procollagen (PIIINP) and C-terminal telopeptide of type I collagen (ICTP) were calculated and arbitrary scores (1.5 or 2.0) were assigned to abnormal markers. By using the sum of individual marker scores, positive (≥3) or negative (
