New HGH test on the way?

Posted on: July 10, 2010 7:36 pm
 

There is talk of a new breakthrough HGH test that has the NFL excited. Expect the issue to move closer to the front burner in the Labor Negotiations.

CNBC offers the details:

A new test that provides a breakthrough in detecting human growth hormone in blood is expected to become available soon and make it more difficult for athletes to use HGH without getting caught.

It's a test some experts consider so good, however, it could blunt the push for the urine-based test sought by some in baseball and football, possibly stalling promising research that has already cost many thousands of dollars.

The new test, called a biomarkers test, scans the blood for chemicals the body produces after HGH use, which are detectable for up to two weeks. The test, expected to be available in the coming weeks or months, is a complement to — or maybe an improvement over — the current test, called an isoform test, which scans blood for synthetic HGH.

The isoform test detects synthetic HGH in the blood for only about 48 hours after use, making it easier for users to avoid detection.

For what it’s worth, the CFL recently agreed to HGH testing.
