A synthetic anabolic steroid similar in structure to testosterone, which has enhanced tissue-building properties and less androgenic effects than testosterone. Methandrostenolone is on the World Anti-Doping Agency's 2005 Prohibited List. In November 2005, Xavier, the Middlesborough and Portugal International footballer, was given an 18-month ban after testing positive for the anabolic steroid; he is appealing against the decision, claiming that he unknowingly took the drug in a contaminated supplement.
