A derivative of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and sharing a similar chemical structure of the steroid epitiostanol, once ingested, epistane binds to the receptors of the body that are responsible for building lean muscle mass. It is a readily orally active compound, meaning it is best in capsule form for oral administration over injection. Once ingested epistane works by increasing the level of activity in the cells in androgen receptors, upon binding to these receptors, epistane signals for an increased retention of nitrogen within that cell as well as an increased level of protein synthesis, leading to an increased performance as the muscles can perform/recover/grow better.

Athletes, like all others, may have illnesses or conditions that require them to take particular medications. If the medication an athlete is required to take to treat an illness or condition happens to fall under the prohibited list, a therapeutic use exemption may give that athlete the authorization to take the needed medicine. Criteria for granting a therapeutic use exemption are 1.) The athlete would experience significant health problems without taking the prohibited substance or method, 2.) The therapeutic use of the substance would not produce significant enhancement of performance, and 3.) There is no reasonable therapeutic alternative to the use of the otherwise prohibited substance or method. Note hormone replacement therapy (HRT), . supplementing with prescribed testosterone in any form to raise testosterone levels due to natural decreases that occur with aging (even if to just elevate levels to within ‘normal’ ranges), is NOT considered a medicinal exception. Persons using HRT would not be eligible for WPA/NANBF/IPE competition.
