Stephen Dank Found Guilty By AFL Anti-Doping Tribunal

The AFL anti-doping tribunal has found Stephen Dank guilty of 10 breaches. The controversial sports scientist was facing 34 charges including trafficking, attempt to trafficking and complicity in matters related to a range of prohibited substances.

The breaches mostly related to time of Dank with Essendon, but also included his stint with the Gold Coast Suns and dealings with a former Carlton coach.

An AFL statement read the Tribunal has found that the former Essendon support person has been found guilty of 10 breaches of the AFL Anti-Doping Code. The statement also revealed that the prohibited substances in question include Thymosin beta-4 and CJC-1295 and added that former NRL player Sandor Earl admitted to trafficking.

The tribunal said it is comfortably satisfied that Dank violated clause 11.7 of the AFL Code by attempting to traffick in, by selling, giving, transporting, sending, delivering and/or distributing to a third party or parties, namely the Essendon Football Club and athletes of the club, prohibited substances in a product known as Humanofort, namely Insulin Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1), Insulin Growth Factor 2 (IGF-2), Mechano Growth Factor (MGF), Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF), Follistatin and Thymosin Beta 4, between about January 2012 and September 2012. The tribunal also said it is comfortably satisfied that the former support person violated clause 11.7 of the AFL Code by attempting to traffick in, by selling, giving, transporting, sending, delivering and/or distributing to a third party or parties, namely the Gold Coast Suns Football Club and support persons of the club, a prohibited substance, namely CJC-1295, in December 2010.

AFL general counsel Andrew Dillon said the circumstances surrounding the case have been extremely difficult, given the amount of information and the number of parties involved and added the professionalism and diligence of the Tribunal has been greatly appreciated by the AFL.

The AFL anti-doping tribunal said it is not comfortably satisfied that Dank violated clause 11.8 of the AFL Anti-Doping Code by attempting to administer a substance prohibited both in and out-of-competition, namely Hexarelin, to various Essendon Football Club Players between about January 2012 and September 2012. It added the tribunal is not comfortably satisfied that Stephen Dank violated clause 11.6 of the AFL Anti-Doping Code by actually possessing, at various times between about January 2012 and September 2012, one or more substances prohibited both in and out-of-competition, namely Thymosin Beta 4 and/or Hexarelin, in connection with athletes (players) competition and/or training at Essendon Football Club.

It also said the tribunal is not comfortably satisfied that Dank violated clause 11.7 of the AFL Code by trafficking in, by selling, giving, transporting, sending, delivering and/or distributing to a third party or parties, namely the Essendon Football Club and athletes, prohibited substances in a product known as Humanofort, namely Insulin Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1), Insulin Growth Factor 2 (IGF-2), Mechano Growth Factor (MGF), Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF), Follistatin and Thymosin Beta 4, between about January 2012 and September 2012.

The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) is contemplating an appeal to that tribunal decision and said it is disappointed in the tribunal’s decision to clear Dank of a number of serious alleged violations.

  MGF II- Mechano-growth factor II

Mechano-growth factor II, or MGF II, is a variant of the IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1) that stimulates myoblasts division and helps muscle fibers to fuse and mature. Sportsmen, especially those into body building, use MGF-II as it helps in accelerating growth of muscles and promote fat mass reductions in the body.

In addition to this, Mechano-growth factor II is extremely beneficial in improving the level of endurance and muscle definition besides promoting immune defense improvements and strengthening of bones. This drug is also useful in reducing the cholesterol level and promoting accelerated recovery after intense workouts.

One of the biggest advantages associated with Mechano-growth factor II is that its users do not experience any side effects that generally occur with use of other drugs for gaining body mass. Moreover, MGF-II is second to none in ameliorating age-related loss of muscle strength and increased fragility. Medical studies in the past have suggested that MGF represents a target for therapeutic intervention to prevent age-related muscle loss due to its supposed ability to activate satellite cells and Mechano growth factor can also be used to preserve muscular phenotypes during onset of motoneuron-targeted diseases. It is believed that MGF is the most dominantly anabolic portion of the IGF-1 peptide and has the unique ability to promote greater increases in muscle weight and muscle definition, over a shorter time as compared to IGF-1 alone.

In addition to these advantages, Mechano-growth factor II, or MGF II, leads to muscle mass gains by improving the ability of wasted tissue to grow and activate muscle stem cells. It has also been shown to improve the upregulation of protein synthesis and inducing rapid muscle hypertrophy. Not only this, MGF-II has the ability to target skeletal tissue and promote muscle growth by repairing damaged tissues and can be considered potential as a generic means of treating muscle cachexia.

The recommended dose of Mechano-growth factor II is 100-200 mcg every day and the ideal frequency is two or three times a week. MGF-II is required to be injected subcutaneously 1-2 hours before training for imitating physiologic secretion. The best steroid cycle involving Mechano-growth factor II is of a period of five to six weeks.
