rowth hormone deficiency, suffering from AIDS and short physical stature.

Over the years athletes have used growth hormone extensively thinking that it would assist them in building muscle and to increase performance. Moreover, since the presence of growth hormone in human body is difficult to detect through urine tests, in 2004 blood test was used to confirm its presence.

The newest study was conducted on 103 amateur athletes, who were of 18 to 40 years of age. For two consecutive months, they were given injections of either saline water or human growth hormone. A few of them were also injected with testosterone shots.

The only development that was unearthed was in support of bicycle sprinting, where a 4% increase in sprinting speed was noticed.
