Re: Lance Armstrong drops fight against US Anti-Doping Agency drug charges

Michele Ferrari has a cute way of trying to convince us he has never doped athletes.

- "Intravenous EPO": the knowledge that intravenous administration would allow a more rapid elimination can be compared to reinventing the wheel. It is well known ever since the appearance of rhEPO (late 80s) that the half-life (elimination) of the drug administered intravenously is approximately 5 hours, compared to the 20-25 hours with subcutaneous administration: this information appears on the therapeutic indications booklet inside the package. Surely there was no need for Dr. Ferrari to advise on what everyone already knew;

I feel so reassured now!
