Epogen is often used by athletes in endurance sports. It causes your body to make more red blood cells
so your blood has greater oxygen carrying capacity. I don't think it has any effect on muscle
mass. EPO can cause potentially fatal blood clots. At least
one cyclist on the Tour de France has died from an EPO related blood clot.
