Most basically and broadly, the term peptides refers to those substances that are made of amino acid chains. In the context of performance enhancement, however, the term is typically much more specific. In this case, it usually refers to a group of drugs that are based on human growth hormone. The most obvious among this group are the recombinant copies of growth hormone, somatropin and somatrem. However, “peptides” also includes a growing number of drugs based on growth hormone or its anabolic product IGF-1 (Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1), or agents that stimulate the production of these hormones in the body. In most cases, these drugs are also peptide molecules, though for the sake of simplicity we may include some compounds that are of the GH class, but not technically peptides in structure.
