Anabolic/Ergogenic Research Group (AERG)
The AERG is one of a handful of American research groups conducting research on use practices, motivations, consequences and complications of steroidal and nonsteroidal anabolic and ergo/thermogenic drugs – Appearance- and Performance-Enhancing Drugs, or APEDs – by elite athletes and instrumental users. The AERG has published several instruments for the study of these issues, including the sole reliable and valid diagnostic instrument for (the APEDUS). The AERG and possesses and is continuing to collect the largest and most complex internet-gathered samples of users to date.
- Publishing results of ergo/thermogenic use in the V1.0 internet sample of APED users.
- Building a V2.0 internet sample of APED users using an APEDUS-derived survey instrument
- Developing the concept of the Androgen Intoxication Syndrome and its implications for emerging social problems, including excess police violence caused by APED-using officers.
