    Hi I'm researching EPO for health at school and I'm struggling to find information.

    I need to know:
    When, Where and Why it was first made?
    How is it used?
    How much does it cost?
    And any info on high profile uses would be greatly appreciated

    Good article about the effects of taking EPO:

    The Science of Sport: The effect of EPO on performance: Who wouldn't want to use it?

    If you can get your hands on the original journal article so you can cite it properly that would be good for you.

    This one has lots of references which if you have access to a journal database will really help:

    Mike T Nelson Ramblings: Does EPO Enhance Performance?

    Athletes used to take EPO in relatively large amounts every week or so. They now Microdose (very small quantities every day) to avoid getting caught:

    Microdose EPO

    And finally this one is quite interesting

    Hope that helps.
