Furazabol (Miotolan) is a derivative of the anabolic steroid stanozolol. It differs from stanozolol by having a furazan ring system in place of the pyrazole. It has a c-17alpha methyl group, which allows it to be taken orally and causes heptatoxicity in some individuals. The more intriguing characteristic of this steroid is that (unlike other anabolic steroids) furazabol has the ability to lower cholesterol levels.
Additional recommended knowledge
Diversion of this obscure pharmaceutical steroid to the black market rarely occurred while it was being manufactured by Daiichi Seiyaku Company in Japan. However, a number of underground labs (UGL) have produced limited quantities of Furazabol in recent years. Additionally, a non-methylated derivative of Furazabol called Furaguno is currently being sold over-the-counter on the sport nutrition market in the United States in 2006 and 2007.
The Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson tested positive for Stanozolol after winning the gold medal in the 100 meter sprint at the 1988 Summer Olympics. His doctor, Dr. Jamie Astaphan, maintains that his urine sample was sabotaged because Johnson was administered Furazabol which would have cleared his system well in advance of the competition.
