Thanks for that link.
They don't really conclude anything, and chalk up the lack of knowledge to the fact that clinical trials would have difficulty getting approved.
But the question remains, and I think it's an interesting one--because if beneficial changes last a long time relative to current suspension lengths or to the length of a typical track career, a lifetime ban would be the only equitable solution.
Any new test would need either a baseline, or distinct evidence of past use, no matter when that use occurred.
If detected and use concluded, it would have to be investigated if the use had been for a legitimate therapeutic purpose, rather than for athletic advantage, such as could occur if somebody was voluntarily kept out of competition and totally ineligible from, say, 17-21 or 22 yrs of age, then released upon the scene while not currently using.
A fantasy, I know, but if the reward is big enough...
Thanks again for the link.
