Use of testosterone enanthate has been shown to significantly increase strength within 6-12 weeks of administration (2, 9), however, it is unclear if the ergogenic benefits are evident in less than 6 weeks. Testosterone enanthate is classified as a prohibited substance by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and its use may be detected by way of the urinary testosterone/epitestosterone (T/E) ratio (16). The two objectives of this study were to establish (a) if injection of (-1) testosterone enanthate once per week could increase muscular strength and cycle sprint performance in 3-6 weeks; and (b) if the WADA-imposed urinary T/E ratio of 4:1 could identify all subjects being administered (-1) testosterone enanthate. Sixteen healthy young men were match-paired and were assigned randomly in a double-blind manner to either a testosterone enanthate or a placebo group. All subjects performed a structured heavy resistance training program while receiving either testosterone enanthate ( (-1)) or saline injections once weekly for 6 weeks. One repetition maximum (1RM) strength measures and 10-second cycle sprint performance were monitored at the pre (week 0), mid (week 3), and post (week 6) time points. Body mass and the urinary T/E ratio were measured at the pre (week 0) and post (week 6) time points. When compared with baseline (pre), 1RM bench press strength and total work during the cycle sprint increased significantly at week 3 (p < ) and week 6 (p < ) in the testosterone enanthate group, but not in the placebo group. Body mass at week 6 was significantly greater than at baseline in the testosterone enanthate group (p < ), but not in the placebo group. Despite the clear ergogenic effects of testosterone enanthate in as little as 3 weeks, 4 of the 9 subjects in the testosterone enanthate group ( approximately 44%) did not test positive to testosterone under current WADA urinary T/E ratio criteria.
Anabolic steroids are synthetic versions of hormones that human body produces naturally. Their main role is to assure increased physical performance in all sports and athletic pursuits. Steroidal compounds enhance stamina, strength, weight and size of muscles and may improve the energy levels during physical training. Oral and injectable steroids posses the ability to increase athletic performance, have a positive effect on red blood cells production and bones density. The steroids are used in accordance with requirement and needs of any athlete individually. There are special compounds which are not suitable for women and a series of anti-estrogen products which main role is to counter the eventual side effects of steroids use and to restore natural testosterone levels of the human body. These compounds nowadays became an important part of muscle building process among professional athletes and bodybuilders, as well as regular people, males and females that have the goal to become more attractive and exhibit good looks.

North America, powered by strong demand for advanced TRT products in the ., dominates the global testosterone replacement market by accounting for almost % share in it. In fact, the . occupied about % of the North America market in 2015. Europe follows North America vis-à-vis market share. Other important markets are Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America. Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit speedy growth because of significantly higher healthcare investments. China and India hold out a solid potential for the TRT market. South Korea and Japan too will impact sales positively due to a growing population of geriatrics. In Latin America, Brazil is the primary TRT market with maximum share.
