IOPs at week 4 between the treatment groups (TTFC and betablocker

North Korean shooter Kim Jong Su was stripped of his silver and bronze medals after testing positive for a banned betablocker
, Spanish cyclist Isabel Moreno was expelled after testing positive for EPO in a pre-competition check, and Vietnamese gymnast Thi Ngan Thuong Do was caught using a prohibited diuretic.
To prevent the influence of confounding factors, the study excluded subjects who regularly made use of oral contraceptives (Mueck, Seeger, Petersen, Shultze-Wintrop & Wallwiener, 2001; Seeger, Ludtke, Graser, Wallwiener & Mueck, 2000), antidepressant drugs (Breier, 1995; Linnoila, Miller, Bartko, & Potter, 1984), and betablocker
drugs (Neftel & Gautschi, 1986); subjects who had a body mass index (BMI Kg/[m.sup.2]) above 30 (Bjorntorp, 1995); and subjects who had a cigarette-smoking habit (Benwell, Balfour & Anderson, 1990).
