This paper reviews the prevalence of legal and illegal stimulants in relation to doping-control analysis. Stimulants are among the oldest classes of doping agents, having been used since ancient times. Despite the ease with which they can be detected and the availability of sensitive detection methods, stimulants are still popular among athletes. Indeed, they remain one of the top three most popular classes of prohibited substances. Because the list of legal and illegal stimulants is extensive… Expand
Trend of Drug Abuse in 2011– 2014 in Italy
Doping, although was born as a medication and not with the purpose of enhancing performance, is a widespread practice in all sports, between amateur and gym-goers. The Italian sports federations wereExpand
Sport-Specific Use of Doping Substances: Analysis of World Anti-Doping Agency Doping Control Tests between 2014 and 2017
TLDR
The data suggest the prohibited substances used as doping agents might be substantially different depending on the type of sport and thus, sports-specific anti-doping policies should be implemented to enhance the efficacy of anti-Doping testing. Expand
Stimulant Doping Agents Used in Brazil: Prevalence, Detectability, Analytical Implications, and Challenges
TLDR
The high prevalence of stimulant doping in Brazil can be attributed to several reasons, including “self-administration,” a “body-shaping” culture, and the use of nutritional supplements. Expand
Use of psychotropic substances among elite athletes - a narrative review.
TLDR
The most commonly used psychoactive substances among elite athletes were alcohol, nicotine, cannabis, stimulants and (prescription) opioids. Expand
Dietary Supplement and Food Contaminations and Their Implications for Doping Controls
TLDR
Food was found to be a potential source of unintentional doping, the most prominent example being meat tainted with the anabolic agent clenbuterol. Expand

TLDR
In this annual banned substance review, emerging and advancing methods in the detection of known and recently outlawed substances are reported. Expand
Trends in counterfeits amphetamine-type stimulants after its prohibition in Brazil.
TLDR
The chemical analysis revealed that the seizures capsules labeled as Desobesi-M (fenproporex 25mg), actually contained the active pharmaceutical ingrediente (API) sibutramine, indicating that two seizures had common origin. Expand
A pilot study of non-targeted screening for stimulant misuse using high-resolution mass spectrometry
TLDR
Non-targeted analysis of stimulants by PCA as applied to athlete urine samples was demonstrated for the first time to be capable of flagging positive samples in sport competitions, showing its promise as a complementary screening tool alongside classical methods and as a straightforward approach for selecting samples for long-term storage. Expand
Misuse of prescription stimulant medication in a sample of college students: examining differences between varsity athletes and non-athletes.
TLDR
Varsity athletes were significantly less likely to engage in past-year MPS and were motivated to do so for different reasons, and athletes more often cited a need to enhance athletic performance as the impetus for their misuse. Expand
Doping in sport and exercise: anabolic, ergogenic, health and clinical issues
TLDR
This review will outline the anabolic, ergogenic and health impacts of selected doping agents and methods that may be used in both the sporting and physique development contexts and provides a brief tabulated overview of the history of doping. Expand

TLDR
This review examines the pharmacology of stimulants prohibited by the World Anti‐Doping Agency, including drugs like ephedrine available in many over‐the‐counter medicines and agents with abuse potential as recreational drugs. Expand
The continuing story of nutritional supplements and doping infractions
TLDR
The NZVT experience has shown that paper-based quality systems are still prone to possible contaminations, which leads to the conclusion that the best possible solution for athletes who wish to use nutritional supplements must include laboratory-based analysis for doping substances, preferably repeated for every new batch.

The main effects of exercise on hGH production and the use and effects of rhGH in athletes are discussed, and the most promising method appears to be the direct approach utilising immunoassays. Expand
Problems of the use of pseudoephedrine by athletes.
TLDR
The results of this study have shown that athletes were using PSE frequently and in high doses between 2004 and 2007 when this substance was permitted by WADA and it is possible that athletes can obtain a positive result of doping control with CATH after the use of PSE. Expand
