Abstract:



Clenbuterol and other β-agonists are commonly misused as repartitioning agents in meat production and as doping substances to improve athletic performance. Numerous reports on food poisoning throughout Europe prompted the EU regulatory offices and FDA to implement a ban on the use of β-agonists as growth promoters. Several analytical methods have been developed for detecting illegal administration of these compounds, based mainly on chromatography and immunoassay screening. This article deals with the pharmacological aspect of β-agonists in growth promotion, control of their abuse and methods of analysis.
