Recommended Conferences for Growth Hormone in Sports
Growth Hormone in Sports
As per available reports about Growth Hormone in Sports 1 National Symposium
is presently dedicated exclusively to sports medicine.
in sports refers to the use of growth hormones (GH or HGH) for athletic enhancement, as opposed to growth hormone treatment for medical therapy. Human Growth Hormone
is a prescription medication, meaning that its distribution and use without a prescription is illegal. There is limited evidence that GH doping improves athletic performance, although the perception that it does is common in the Sporting Community . Potential side effects of long term GH doping could mirror the symptoms found in sufferers of acromegaly, a disease in which the anterior pituitary gland produces excess growth hormone. Overview
Human growth hormone occurs naturally in the human body.

Scope & Importance:
in sports refers to the use of growth hormones (GH or HGH) for athletic enhancement. Human growth hormone occurs naturally in the human body. Use of exogenous human growth hormone (HGH)
and Nutrition Markets
are estimated to be at $3.3 billion and is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 9.3% to reach $5.7 billion by 2017. Knee application still holds the largest share among others due to the high frequency of ACL injuries along with other conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, meniscal cartilage damage, and patellar chondromalacia.
Basketball and soccer are two sports in the spotlight for an increase in the number of professional and non-professional players. These games, along with many other regional games, have increased in popularity in the past decade. This can be seen from almost a 5% to 8% rise in number of basketball players every year. These games, becoming popular in Asian countries such as China, Korea, India, and Eastern Bloc countries, can promote a very favourable outcome for the intensive sports medicine market. Research has shown that due to the large number of players and popularity of sports, the incidences of injury are high. This is predicted to propel the sports medicine market and create emerging markets in the growing economies of Asia and Latin America.
The first description of the use of GM as a doping agent was Dan Duchaine’s “Underground Steroid handbook” which emerged from California in 1982; it is not known where and when GM was first used this way. In 1989 the International Olympic Committee became the first to brand human growth hormone a banned substance. Although abuse of human growth hormone for athletic purposes is illegal in the U.S., over the past decade it appears that abuse of HGH is present in all levels of sport. This is fueled at least in part by the fact that HGH is more difficult to detect than most other performance enhancing drugs, such as anabolic steroids. Athletes competing in power sports, bodybuilding, professional wrestling, mixed martial arts, swimming, baseball, strength sports, track and field, cycling, soccer, weight lifting, skiing and endurance sports have been said to abuse human growth hormone, including in combination with other performance enhancing drugs such as androgenic anabolic steroids including testosterone, certain products which claim to enhance HGH, and erythropoietin (among others).
There has never been an adequately large randomized controlled trial showing definitively that HGH provides benefits to athletes and that there are no significant adverse drug reactions; there have been many small studies and several of these studies were recently reviewed and analyzed in a meta-analysis While the authors indicated that the meta-analysis was limited by the fact that few of the included studies evaluated athletic performance and by the fact that dosing protocols in the studies may not reflect real-world doses and regimens, their conclusions were as follows:
"Claims that growth hormone enhances physical performance are not supported by the scientific literature. Although the limited available evidence suggests that growth hormone increases lean body mass, it may not improve strength; in addition, it may worsen exercise capacity and increase adverse events. More research is needed to conclusively determine the effects of growth hormone on athletic performance."
With regard to adverse drug reactions, there is data from animal studies that "long-term administration of human growth hormone can increase the risk of diabetes, retention of fluids, joint and muscle pain, hypertension, cardiomyopathy, osteoporosis, irregular menstruation, impotence and elevated HDL cholesterol."
A report from the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on steroid and growth hormone use found that the misguided use of HGH by professional athletes and entertainers was fuelling the industry peddling the drug to the general public for medically inappropriate uses.
