Blog: 2017 Prohibited List
A reminder that the 2017 Prohibited List (the Prohibited List) published by the World Anti-Doping Agency comes into effect on 1 January 2017.
It is important for athletes to be aware of changes to the Prohibited List to help protect their health, career and the integrity of their sport. ASADA’s Check Your Substances (Global DRO) online tool will be updated when the changes come into effect.
While most of the changes are simple clarifications or examples, we would like to highlight the addition of the following substances to the Prohibited List for your information:
|S2||GATA inhibitors (e.g. K-11706) and Transforming Growth Factor- β (TGF-β) inhibitors (e.g. sotatercept, luspatercept)||These substances modify an individual’s blood production.|
|S6||Lisdexamfetamine||It is a stimulant found in Australian medications for the treatment of ADHD. It is an inactive pro-drug of amfetamine.|
|S7||Nicomorphine||It is an opioid analgesic drug, which is converted to morphine following administration.|
