Actually no. This is the fist study to directly explain the reason why and how Clomid restores the HPTA with the abuse of AAS. Before it was just theory based on studies that indirectly showed that Clomid COULD restore the HPTA. It was a good theory but now its been completely proven. It was conducted in January, 2003.
