Sorry, Just like heaven, based on what you say, I'm still unsure exactly what treatment he has been getting. The quote from Toni is pretty general "growth factor treatment". Do you have a source of which specific growth factor treatment he has been getting? Thanks in advance if you can provide one.
It seems that there are a lot on growth factors on the banned list.
Never mind, I found it myself. He appears to have been getting plasma rich in growth (PRGF-Endoret) factors.
I'm guessing this is essentially what is generically called PRP, which was formerly banned by WADA, but then permitted as of Jan 1, 2011.
