EPO Testing

Bernard Lagat’s medical expert reviewed the testing of his B sample. You can download his entire report, but one conclusion is, “the antibody used does not provide an unequivocal identification of rhEpo and specifically does not discriminate between natural and recombinant erythropoietin!” This means that since every normal person’s kidneys produce EPO all the time, there are always trace amounts of EPO in everyone’s urine. That’s why the scientific author included the exclamation mark (not a commonplace in scientific writing). The report raises such serious doubts about the current protocol that Lagat’s call for a suspension of EPO testing until a better test can be developed is valid and appropriate. (11/27)
