PROHIBITED SUBSTANCES

Use of International Non-proprietary Names (INN)

With the assistance of the World Health Organisation, the nomenclature of some substances on the List has been updated to International Non-proprietary Names (INN). For ease of the reviewer the previous name has been included and no substance has been deleted.


S1. Anabolic Agents

• Changes were made to the definitions of “exogenous” and “endogenous” for purposes of clarification and accuracy.


S2. Peptide Hormones, Growth Factors and Related Substances

• Releasing factors are prohibited and that is made clear in points S2.2, S2.3 and S2.4. In addition other prohibited growth factors are listed separately.

S5. Diuretics and other Masking Agents

• Vasopressin V2 antagonists (vaptans) were added as an example of a diuretic subclass.


M1. Manipulation of Blood and Blood Components

• For the purpose of scientific accuracy, the term allogenic was introduced.


SUBSTANCES AND METHODS PROHIBITED IN-COMPETITION


S6. Stimulants:

• Some drugs that metabolize to amfetamine or methamfetamine have been reclassified because improved analytical techniques permit the identification of the administered drug and corresponding metabolites; MDMA and MDA are reclassified because they are now recognized as less likely to be used as doping agents; cathinone and its analogues (e.g. mephedrone, methedrone, α- pyrrolidinovalerophenone) and trimetazidine have been added as examples to reflect emerging patterns of drug use.


SUBSTANCES PROHIBITED IN PARTICULAR SPORTS


P1. Alcohol

• Changes were made to the wording describing the blood alcohol threshold, in the interest of accuracy.
