Ethnic disparities ignored by doping testsCritical ethnic disparities in hormonal activity are ignored by doping tests and steroid (testosterone) doping tests should be scrapped for international sporting events, as per a research published ahead of print in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

The research suggested that a single indiscriminate threshold for picking up steroid abuse in international sport is no fit for the purpose.

Testosterone derivatives and other hormones, which have the potential to enhance testosterone levels, are among the most widely abused performance enhancing drugs in sports as per the WADA.
