    Hi everyone,

    I would like to ask for further information about how Actovegin had been introduced into de doping substances list, as it was not considered illegal until a couple years ago.

    Thank you very much,


    Spanish Medicine Student

    Hi, Asier

    Thanks for visiting Dopeology and for your question.

    Dopeology concerns itself with the presentation of a topology of doping-related activities rather than official prohibited lists. The aim of the website is not to judge right and wrong in individuals or organisations nor to follow any particular process of classification beyond the very general objects that are currently used.

    No individual product you will find on the Dopeology website has been included because of its status as a WADA-prohibited substance but rather because it is a product of interest in doping-related activities. Meanwhile it is true that a doping-related activity requires some instance of doping and this is why Actovegin is never the sole operator in any incident.

    Actovegin is a product of interest on the Dopeology website because it is still not apparent why its widespread systematic use would be applicable in the normal course of medical practice in relation to professional cycling. At the same time, its prevalence attests to an historic trend of experimentation with non-human derivatives.
