We tested the hypothesis that prolonged administration of moderate doses of recombinant human erythropoietin (r-HuEPO) accelerates the initial rate of rise in pulmonary O2 uptake (V̇O2) in response to submaximal exercise and increases the maximal rate of O2 uptake (V̇O2,max). Sixteen endurance-trained athletes were divided into two groups: r-HuEPO- (n=9) or placebo-treated (n=7). r-HuEPO or placebo (saline) injections were given s.c. 3 times a week for 4 weeks. Exercise testing, before and… CONTINUE READING
