    mcimg Latest Counterfeit Analysis Report!!!

    Be aware !! Plz Check This Link.. 16 April 2009


    Anabolic Research Update:
    By William Llewellyn
    Counterfeit Analysis Report 16 April 2009

    This month, I’d like to take another look at the quality of anabolic steroid products and ancillary drugs on the black market. As anyone who studies the illicit anabolic steroid trade knows, high demand and huge profits offer strong incentive for the manufacture of counterfeit drugs. Over the years, this segment of the illegal business has grown exponentially. What was once a problem largely isolated to the United States, counterfeit steroids can now be found in literally every corner of the globe. Counterfeiting is a phenomenon not isolated to anabolic steroids, of course, and is commonly seen when the significant sales of anything valuable are diverted from legitimate to underground sources. Given the nature of drug products, however, the counterfeit steroid phenomenon is an especially important health concern to drug-using bodybuilders. As the number of these products grows, so too does the number of reports of low or no product efficacy, or worse— health consequences including abscess, infection, anaphylaxis and heavy metal contamination.

    Whenever analysis studies come along that offer us a small cross-sectional view of what is being actively traded (and consumed) on the black market, I always like to report on them. This month, we have the opportunity to review a particular good report from Germany. It covers the analysis of 70 different anabolic steroids and ancillary drug products at the Center for Preventative Doping Research in Cologne. All of the samples analyzed in this report were obtained during police raids of three illegal dealers of anabolic steroids. While this is not a set of tests from the United States (where most readers of this column reside), I believe the results are still very relevant, especially when you consider that Western Europe is known for less stringent controls and the greater availability of legitimate steroid drugs than the United States. In other words, the results should have been at least as bad had they been conducted in the United States.
    The Results
    Included in this article are the results of the study separated by drug type. I felt upon review that it allowed a somewhat interesting view of the “relative confidence” one could have for a particular type of steroid or drug, at least according to the numbers in this small report. It is important to emphasize that while a fairly large sample for this type of analysis, 70 drug products taken from three dealers is not sufficient to prove any specific market trend, overall counterfeit prevalence or brand legitimacy. Still, as we find in the results, counterfeiting is still very much alive and well and is an issue Germans have to deal with just as do Americans

    Underground Steroid Products
    Of the 10 samples of British Dragon (BD) products taken from one dealer, only two were shown to contain the labeled ingredients upon analysis. None of the samples, however, were shown to be devoid of steroid ingredients. Instead, there appeared to be a trend of substituting expensive ingredients for less costly ones. For example, all of the trenbolone products failed the testing, usually because they contained a base of testosterone instead of trenbolone. Since these all originated from one dealer and BD has been the subject of much recent counterfeiting and internal instability, it is impossible to determine if these had originated from the actual manufacturer. IP (international Pharmaceuticals) is the only other company identified as an underground operation during this testing and only their fluoxymesterone steroid was analyzed. It contained the properly labeled ingredient.

    Just FYI.... I had a dream last year that I orded 20amps of 250mg enth. (among a few other items) from the "chinaman" and I'm not sure wtf it was but it sure the f**k wasn't 250mg enth. It was so bad that I trashed 'em!!

    I dreamed I took 1000mgs within 14days and the only thing I felt was the pain from the injections. After 3 more amps, I quit and moved on to the AD 50tabs, which came from him too, and they were gtg, but they were a name brand.

    I talked to another guy yesterday who just had the same dream with CM's D-bol tablets.

    Normas never have any color top on them. They only come with a metal top. All others are fake. Just go to the company link

    almost anyone can make counterfeit labels look like the real deal with todays technology at their disposal, so your right! Hell even real Store Pharmacies like walgreens CVS, Rite Aid have been duped and recieved and filled prescriptions with counterfeit drugs from over seas. Damn shame and dangerous especially if the vial doesnt have the actual hormone in it, which it should if its counterfeit.
