Erythropoietin or EPOIt is the main growth factor involved in the regulation of the production of red blood cells in the human body. Isolation and production of this hormone for medical purposes are very beneficial. The hormone erythropoietin is able to cure various forms of anemia, effectively stimulating the production and maintaining the patient's required level of erythropoiesis. The effectiveness of the drug quickly replaced the previous less effective types of drugs, for example, Anadrol 50.
Recombinant human erythropoietin is a purified single chain of polypeptide hormone, with 165 amino acids in a row. The preparation is made from animal cells into which the gene code of human erythropoietin is introduced. The biological activity of recombinant erythropoietin is no different from human erythropoietin.
ERYTHROPOETIN IN SPORT
Erythropoietin in sports is common: athletes are dependent on EPO, as it is responsible for the production of red blood cells. It's no secret that among the sports that check the endurance of athletes, so-called "blood doping" is common. This procedure involves removing a certain amount of blood from the body in order to preserve it and then replace it. Right before the competition, athletes add to the body the stored blood (the body by that time just restores the lost amount of blood), due to which they have much more red blood cells. Thus, the blood carries oxygen much better around the body, due to which the athlete receives a noticeable increase in endurance. So the hormone erythroprotein, undoubtedly, for many athletes is a fine line between victory and defeat. However, the procedure, which includes erythropoietin dope, is very risky. Blood is hard to accumulate and difficult to manage, not to mention the problems that can occur as a result of excess of red blood cells. Some of the risks are reduced with the help of EPO, a drug that is often equated with "chemical doping of blood". Preservation and injection of blood may not cause any fear, but here the problems with the number of red blood cells can be very dangerous. With improper use of the drug, the concentration of the corpuscles can reach a limit level, and this will threaten the life of the athlete. With it, there can be a heart attack, stroke, seizure; known lethal cases.
There are also a number of side effects associated with the use of the hormone erythropoietin. Because of the change in the number of red blood cells, blood pressure may rise, after which headaches appear. Moreover, there are symptoms similar to the symptoms of the flu: the bones ache, there is a chill. Possible irritation at the injection site. Due to the fact that athletes use erythropoietin not under the prescription of a doctor, a strong manifestation of side effects should serve as a signal to stop the use of the drug. Do not risk your health for sporting excitement.

Erythropoietin is sold as an injection liquid, can be taken subcutaneously (between the skin and the muscle) or intravenously. Each of these modes of administration has its own effect on blood pressure. Due to intravenous delivery, the peak blood pressure level is reached as quickly as possible. The half-life also lasts not for long, about 4-5 hours. When administered subcutaneously, the drug will raise the pressure to a maximum of 12 to 18 hours. In an equal dose, this concentration will be much lower than if it were administered intravenously. The half-life is also much longer, about a day. In clinical use, the initial doses range from 15 to 50 units per kilogram of body weight three times a week. For this dosage the athlete weighing 70 kg will receive a maximum of 4000 units in one injection, that is, 4 ml of the drug. The reception is designed for 2-3 days. Erythropoietin as doping should be taken a few days or weeks before the competition, the maximum effect will be obtained on the eve of the competition.
The hormone-receiving erythropoietin should familiarize itself with the pharmacokinetics of the drug long before the beginning of taking Epogen. A special schedule for taking the drug should be created so that the athlete knows how best to take the epigen into each of the injections. The schedule will help to avoid complications that may arise due to the fact that the dosage of the drug was unknowingly calculated at the last minute. The above dosage in many clinical cases can vary up to 100 units per kilogram
