A number of nandrolone cases in athletics occurred in 1999, which included high-profile athletes such as Merlene Ottey , Dieter Baumann and Linford Christie .  However, the following year the detection method for nandrolone at the time was proved to be faulty. Mark Richardson , a British Olympic relay runner who tested positive for the substance, gave a significant amount of urine samples in a controlled environment and delivered a positive test for the drug, demonstrating that false positives could occur, which led to an overhaul of his competitive ban. 
Microbial catabolism of phytosterol side chains yields C-19 steroids, C-22 steroids, and 17-ketosteroids (. precursors to adrenocortical hormones and contraceptives ).     The addition and modification of functional groups is key when producing the wide variety of medications available within this chemical classification. These modifications are performed using conventional organic synthesis and/or biotransformation techniques.  
Oral Trenbolone is incredibly hepatotoxic, and even short cycles can take a toll. For this reason, most people prefer injectable Tren steroids. If you are interested in avoiding injections, though, and you want to use Tren oral, use the smallest possible dose that provides results for the shortest period possible. Be sure to also incorporate some liver protection into your cycle, whether you choose to use milk thistle or a specially-formulated liver care product. Overall, though, the consensus is that both oral and injectable Tren provide the same results at the same doses.
