THG Identified In A Used SyringeTetrahydrogestrinone, a designer steroid that was unidentifiable long ago has been identified by researchers at the Olympic Analytical Laboratory at UCLA in Los Angeles.

THG (Tetrahydrogestrinone) was identified after a spent syringe was anonymously provided to the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

The FDA has advised all health effects in the serious use of designer steroids and said it cannot be legally marketed without approval.

Dwain Chambers will be welcomed backThe first athlete from Britain to be banned for using performance enhancing drugs, Dwain Chambers, will be welcomed back into the British team, the new national head coach said.

Dutchman Charles van Commenee told the BBC that Chambers is a very good athlete and he is more than welcome back in the team after serving his sentence.

London 2012 chairman Sebastian Coe, an admirer of van Commenee, said that there should be no place in athletics for the likes of Chambers.

According to a plea agreement filed Wednesday in United States District Court in San Jose, California, VMG Global pleaded guilty to charges of introducing unapproved drugs into interstate commerce with the intent to defraud and mislead.

The company had cooperated with the government to resolve the case in a fair and appropriate manner as per Rick Collins, a lawyer representing VMG Global.

New detection system for performance enhancing drugsA new detection system that could be used to test athletes for performance enhancing drugs is about to be developed by scientists at the University of Nottingham.

The research is led by Professor Colin Snape in the University’s School of Chemical, Environmental and Mining Engineering and published recently in Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry.

The research is expected to offer a more reliable way of detecting drug molecules in the body.

Marion Jones still cannot accept guiltThe disgraced American sprinter, Marion Jones, opened up on The Oprah Winfrey Show but still does not find it easy to take the complete responsibility for the drug use episode that had tarnished her career and the Sydney Olympics.

It is worth noting here that Jones lied before the investigators when shown a phial of “the clear” denying use of drugs but partially made a confession when she was about to be sent to prison.

Jones maintained that she did not suspected anything illegal in the substance given to her by Coach Trevor Graham and considered it as flaxseed oil.

  Doping claims of Ben Johnson fall on deaf ears

Doping claims of Ben Johnson fall on deaf earsClaims and confessions of sabotage and cover-ups disclosed in autobiography of Ben Johnson will not be investigated by the governing world body of athletics because the body is not obliged to act under its own statue of limitations.

Johnson, the disgraced Seoul Olympics 100m champion, claims that his drink was spiked with the banned steroid Stanozolol just before he went for a urine test after his Olympic triumph.

The claims will not be explored as the International Association of Athletics Federations has a self-imposed statute of limitations for eight years in doping cases and the Johnson doping incident traces back to the Seoul games that ended 21 years ago.

Tetrahydrogestrinone discovered in spent syringeTetrahydrogestrinone (THG) was a new thing for the world of doping till the time a spent syringe was not anonymously provided to USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency).

But after it was provided, Don Catlin and his team of researchers at the UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory in Los Angeles were able to crackdown chemical formula of the substance inside the spent syringe.

The best part of this story is that plans to curb use of this steroid have already been formulated by development of accurate urine detection test for the same.

The discovery of this synthetic designer steroid has given a respite to doping scientists who always want to stay ahead of doping sportsmen.

Tetrahydrogestrinone discovered in anonymously provided spent syringeA new synthetic designer steroid has been discovered by the by researchers from the UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory in Los Angeles after it received it from the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

This anonymously provided spent syringe was handed to it and Don Catlin and his team of researchers were able to crack down the chemical formula of this steroid. This new steroid is known as Tetrahydrogestrinone (THG) and plans have already been put into action to ensure that no sportsman makes use of this drug in the future.

It has been remarked by the FDA that this steroid can be legally marketed without its approval as it can result in serious health repercussions.

  New Designer Steroid found in Syringe

New Designer Steroid found in SyringeA previously unknown designer steroid in a syringe has been identified as Tetrahydrogestrinone (THG) by researchers from the UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory in Los Angeles.

After the discovery of this new designer steroid, steps have already been taken to proceed with the development of an accurate urine detection test to identify its usage in the future.

The previously undetectable anabolic steroid in a spent syringe was anonymously provided to the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). This led to a study by Don Catlin, who was able to detect an unfamiliar substance and following it by founding its chemical formula.

From News-Medical.Net:

Urine samples were purposely spiked with the newly identified THG and various analyses carried out to determine how the substance could be detected. Although it is not detectable by standard doping control screening, THG was found to be easily detectable by alternate methods. Once detection methods were established, the substance was administered to a baboon both intravenously and intramuscularly, and its excreted urine collected for analysis. It was determined that THG is detectable in urine after both IV and IM administration.

The designer drug identified in this study is different from anabolic steroids previously found in athletes‘ urine samples. The Food and Drug Administration has warned that its use could pose health risks, and it cannot be legally marketed without approval.

Lead researcher Catlin attributes this discovery to the provision of crucial inside information, and believes it to be a valuable contribution to doping control. He says, “Now that there’s a test for THG, anyone using it can get caught, and it’s unlikely to be found again in an athlete’s urine sample.”

The FDA has warned about serious health consequences from its usage and has said that it cannot be legally marketed without its approval.
