Abstract

The timely update of the list of prohibited substances and methods of doping (as issued by the World Anti-Doping Agency) is an essential aspect of international anti-doping efforts and represents consensual agreement by expert panels regarding substances and the methods of performance manipulation in sports. The annual banned-substance review for human doping controls critically summarizes recent innovations in analytical approaches; its purpose is to improve the quality of doping controls by reporting emerging and advancing methods that focus on detecting known and recently outlawed substances. This review surveys new and/or enhanced procedures and techniques of doping analysis together with information relevant to doping control that has been published in the literature between October 2009 and September 2010.
