Beta-2 agonists are on the list of prohibited substances in sport. Salbutamol by inhalation is permitted to treat allergic asthma, and/or exercise-induced asthma or exercise-induced bronchoconstriction. If the level of salbutamol in urine exceeds 1000 ng/mL, the result is considered as a doping violation with an anabolic steroid. We report a case of a track and field athlete who tested well above this limit during a competition. He had a valid therapeutic use exemption for the use of salbutamol… Expand

TLDR
Concern is expressed at the persistent failure of WADA to apply a correction down to a specific gravity of 1.020 when an exogenous substance is identified in the urine of a dehydrated athlete. Expand

TLDR
A track and field athlete who tested positive for salbutamol in urine during a competition received a 2-year ban for use of anabolic steroids, but this should not be considered an exceptional case, nor should its consequences be underestimated. Expand
Ergogenic Effects of Intake of Salbutamol, Caffeine and Theobromine on Non-Asthmatic Subjects
TLDR
Overall, salbutamol, the intake of which is restricted by WADA, did not have an ergogenic effect on athletes, while caffeine and theobromine, the usage of which are not controlled at all in sports competitions, had a performance enhancing effect on Athletes, according to the results. Expand
The World Anti-Doping Code: can you have asthma and still be an elite athlete?
TLDR
The World Anti-Doping Code (the Code) does place some restrictions on prescribing inhaled β2-agonists, but these can be overcome without jeopardising the treatment of elite athletes with asthma, a review examines those sections of the Code that are relevant to respiratory physicians who manage elite and sub-elite athlete with asthma.

Inhaled Salbutamol and Doping Control: Effects of Dose on Urine Concentrations
TLDR
These results indicate that after inhalation of doses up to 800 μg, urinary concentrations of salbutamol are well below the limits used in doping control, and compare these values against the current World Anti-Doping Code limits. Expand
Dose response of inhaled salbutamol on exercise performance and urine concentrations.
TLDR
It is suggested that inhaled SAL does not enhance time-trial performance, regardless of dose, and that urine cSAL after exercise is related to dose, demonstrates high variability, and is partially related to hydration status. Expand
Urine concentrations of repetitive doses of inhaled salbutamol.
TLDR
Blood and urine concentrations of repetitive doses of inhaled salbutamol in relation to the existing cut-off value used in routine doping control were examined and high variability in urine concentrations between subjects in both groups was found. Expand
β2-Agonists at the olympic games
The different approaches that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) had adopted to β2-agonists and the implications for athletes are reviewed by a former Olympic team physician who later became aExpand
The influence of exercise and dehydration on the urine concentrations of salbutamol after inhaled administration of 1600 µg salbutamol as a single dose in relation to doping analysis.
TLDR
In conclusion, exercise and dehydration affect urine concentrations of salbutamol and increase the risk of Adverse Analytical Findings in samples collected after inhalation of that maximal permitted (1600 µg) for sal butamol. Expand
Impact of Ethnicity, Gender, and Dehydration on the Urinary Excretion of Inhaled Salbutamol With Respect to Doping Control
TLDR
Asthmatic athletes using salbutamol should receive clear dosing advise and education to minimize the risk of inhaling doses of sal butamol that may produce urine concentrations of salButamol above 1200 ng/mL. Expand

Effects of inhaled salbutamol in exercising non-asthmatic athletes
TLDR
Inhaled salbutamol, even in a high dose, did not have a significant effect on endurance performance in non-asthmatic athletes, although the bronchodilating effect of the drug at the beginning of exercise may have improved respiratory adaptation. Expand
The effect of salbutamol on performance in elite nonasthmatic athletes.
TLDR
It was concluded that a therapeutic dose of aerosol salbutamol does not have an ergogenic effect in elite nonasthmatic athletes, and it is therefore recommended that inhaled sal butamol continue to be permitted in international competition for individuals with exercise induced bronchospasm. Expand
Inhaled salbutamol decreases blood ammonia levels during exercise in normal subjects
TLDR
The results suggest that β2-adrenoreceptors are involved in the regulation of blood ammonia during exercise. Expand
Salbutamol and high‐intensity treadmill running in nonasthmatic highly conditioned athletes
TLDR
It was concluded that a therapeutic dose of nebulized salbutamol does not improve performance in highly trained athletes during a high‐intensity run to exhaustion. Expand
Effect of salbutamol on muscle strength and endurance performance in nonasthmatic men.
TLDR
Oral salbutamol appears to be an effective ergogenic aid in nonasthmatic individuals not experiencing adverse side effects under the conditions of this study. Expand
Distinction of inhaled and oral salbutamol by urine analysis using conventional screening procedures for doping control.
TLDR
Different criteria for suspecting oral use of salbutamol are discussed, taking into account the data obtained by application of two conventional screening procedures for doping control: gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Expand
Test methods: anabolics.
TLDR
The more and more evident use, on a large scale, of substances chemically similar to the endogenous steroids obliges both the laboratory and the sports authorities to use the steroid profile of the athlete in comparison with reference ranges from a population or with intraindividual reference values. Expand
The effect of inhaled salbutamol and salmeterol on lung fuction and endurance performance in healthy well‐trained athletes
TLDR
Lung function increased significantly after exercise, but without differences between the β2‐agonists and placebo, and running time till exhaustion was significantly reduced after both the long‐and the short‐acting β2-agonist compared to the placebo. Expand
Treatment with inhaled β2-agonists or oral leukotriene antagonist do not enhance physical performance in nonasthmatic highly trained athletes exposed to −15°C
TLDR
The results show that the three asthmatic medications do not enhance physical performance during submaximal and maximal exercise in nonasthmatic highly trained athletes exposed to sub-zero conditions. Expand
Effects of acute ingestion of salbutamol during submaximal exercise.
TLDR
It is suggested that acute salbutamol ingestion improved performance during submaximal exercise probably through an enhancement of the overall contribution to energy production from both aerobic and anaerobic metabolisms. Expand
