Administration of Hydrocortisone in Young Healthy Male Volunteers

2019-10-28 13:56:49 | BioPortfolio


The misuse of cortisone or hydrocortisone for doping purpose in sport has been widely reported in the literature, but to date, no formal testing procedure is available and applicable in an anti-doping laboratory to detect hydrocortisone doping abuse , i.e., administration by systemic way.

The investigators therefore propose to identify biomarkers that clearly distinguish between an authorized local administration of hydrocortisone and a prohibited systemic administration, by studying the impact of 5-day administration of hydrocortisone per 2 different routes.


Clinical research with two groups of ten volunteers one group with 5 days with local administration (cream, applied to healthy skin) one group with 5 days with systemic route of administration (per os)

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A naturally occurring glucocorticoid. It has been used in replacement therapy for adrenal insufficiency and as an anti-inflammatory agent. Cortisone itself is inactive. It is converted in the liver to the active metabolite HYDROCORTISONE. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p726)


A metabolite of PROGESTERONE with a hydroxyl group at the 17-alpha position. It serves as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of HYDROCORTISONE and GONADAL STEROID HORMONES.

The wide middle zone of the adrenal cortex. This zone produces a series of enzymes that convert PREGNENOLONE to cortisol (HYDROCORTISONE) via 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYPROGESTERONE.

The main glucocorticoid secreted by the ADRENAL CORTEX. Its synthetic counterpart is used, either as an injection or topically, in the treatment of inflammation, allergy, collagen diseases, asthma, adrenocortical deficiency, shock, and some neoplastic conditions.
