SARMs ( Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators ) are performance enhancers which have been used in competitive sports for some time. According to the many users of SARMS in the world of steroids, they are used because they are oral in nature and they target androgen receptors in the body effectively. The fact that they have to be ingested is a plus for Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators, since they take a short time to reach the bloodstream. SARMS are the most highly abused steroids in the world of sports and since they are cheaper and more effective a lot of drug companies are making them for the black market. According to users, the problem with other steroids is that they have their own unique limitations as they will cause the fluctuation of testosterone levels in the bloodstream. Androgenic effects of using SARMS are noticed immediately after they have been used. It is for this reason that it has been used for the treatment of osteoporosis in women. SARM is one of the few of its kind not to cause liver damage in its users. Most oral steroids have been modified to protect them from being damaged by the liver when it is being ingested and most of them cause a lot of liver problems due to this.
LABORATORY CONTROL: The PT reflects the depression of vitamin K dependent Factors VII, X and II. A system of standardizing the PT in oral anticoagulant control was introduced by the World Health Organization in 1983. It is based upon the determination of an International Normalized Ratio (INR) which provides a common basis for communication of PT results and interpretations of therapeutic ranges. 17 The PT should be determined daily after the administration of the initial dose until PT/INR results stabilize in the therapeutic range. Intervals between subsequent PT/INR determinations should be based upon the physician's judgment of the patient's reliability and response to Jantoven (warfarin sodium tablets) ® Tablets in order to maintain the individual within the therapeutic range. Acceptable intervals for PT/INR determinations are normally within the range of one to four weeks after a stable dosage has been determined. To ensure adequate control, it is recommended that additional PT tests be done when other warfarin products are interchanged with warfarin sodium tablets, USP, as well as whenever other medications are initiated, discontinued, or taken irregularly (see PRECAUTIONS ). Safety and efficacy of warfarin therapy can be improved by increasing the quality of laboratory control. Reports suggest that in usual care monitoring, patients are in therapeutic range only 33%-64% of the time. Time in therapeutic range is significantly greater (56%-93%) in patients managed by anticoagulation clinics, among self-testing and self-monitoring patients, and in patients managed with the help of computer Self-testing patients had fewer bleeding events than patients in usual care. 18
