Its Actions, Effects, and Regulatory Control

Furosemide in the Horse, a Testing Integrity Program (TIP) seminar and workshop held at the New Orleans Hilton Riverside, March 1, 1998. Convened by Dr. Richard Sams and Dr. Scott Stanley.

  • History of the use of furosemide and its role in the prevention of EIPH.
  • Effects of furosemide on racing performance and drug detection.
  • Regulatory approaches to the use of furosemide, including discussions of quantitative testing and proper sample collection technique.
