Androgenic-anabolic steroids (AAS) have been misused by athletes at the Olympic Games, both before and after they were prohibited in sport in 1974. Systematic doping with AAS occurred in the German Democratic Republic (GDR) from 1965 to 1989 which assisted that country to win many medals at Olympic Games, especially in female events. Currently, AAS are the most frequent category of prohibited substances detected in the urine of athletes both globally and at the last two Summer Olympic Games… Expand
Do anabolic-androgenic steroids have performance-enhancing effects in female athletes?
TLDR
It remains unclear whether endogenous hyperandrogenism seen in some medical conditions such as disorders of sexual development (DSD), congenital adrenal hyperplasia and polycystic ovary syndrome, confers any competitive advantage. Expand
Proscribed drugs at the Olympic Games: permitted use and misuse (doping) by athletes.
TLDR
This paper discusses Olympic athletes who have been known to dope at past Games and some medical indications and pitfalls in the TUE process. Expand
Sports supplements and Anabolic Androgenic Steroids
Recently, the use of sport supplements has become so common among most athletes. These supplements may contain undeclared substances that are banned by such international authorities as WHO, IOC andExpand
Studying the effect of anabolic androgenic steroids on the oral health of athletes
TLDR
The results showed the dental caries indices: PUFA and DMF showed no significant difference among athletes; this could be due the low age of athletes using anabolic androgenic steroid and the use of these drugs out of medical supervision, and may suggest that long term studies are needed to verify the cariogenecity of anabolicandrogenic steroids in human mouth.

Doping and musculoskeletal system: short‐term and long‐lasting effects of doping agents
TLDR
The purpose of this article is to highlight the early and the long‐lasting consequences of the doping abuse on bone and muscle metabolism. Expand

The Effects of Anabolic Androgenic Steroids on Performance and its Adverse Side Effects in Athletes
TLDR
Despite performance benefits, numerous side-effects of anabolic androgenic steroids such as; increased sexual drive, occurrence of acne, increased body hair, aggressive behavior, fluid retention, elevated blood pressure (BP), sleeplessness, increased irritability, feelings of low libido, increased appetite, enhanced transpiration, increased feeling of well-being and depressive mood states have been reported.

The Physiological Effects on Hormones levels and Kidneys Functions Induced by The Anabolic Androgenic Drug (Sustanon) in Male Guinea Pigs
TLDR
The current hormonal results proved the occurrence of severe abnormal alterations in the serum levels of the thyroid gland hormones, Cortisol and Insulin under the influence of Sustanon treatment, indicating that abusing SUSTanon for long periods by athletes can cause serious pathological hormonal disorders in the abusers. Expand
Efectos de la suplementación con testosterona sobre el rendimiento en resistencia
TLDR
Doping with testosterone could have a potential effect on ergogenic resistance patterns, however, such improvements can have negative effects on the health of the athlete like metabolic, organic, psychological disorders and immunosuppression. Expand
The use of bioassays to detect designer androgens in sports supplements
TLDR
The overall hypothesis of this thesis was that designer steroids contained within sports supplements are potent androgens, and the Australian sports supplement market was screened for undeclared androgenic substances. Expand

Anabolic-Androgenic Steroids
TLDR
The existing scientific evidence coupled with an overwhelming number of anecdotal accounts argues against devoting significant resources to this area of investigation at present, and efforts should be expanded in the areas of prevention and education. Expand
