gaminator slots net,Scientists were last night claiming a victory over the drug cheats after the discovery of a new designer steroid. The World Anti-Doping Agency admitted that there were other designer drugs in circulation but this one, called desoxymethyltestosterone (DMT) was discovered by Canadian customs officials in a shipment of bottles coming in from the United States.
A mystery whistle-blower subsequently tipped off WADA that the drug had been found.,rummy offline

Olivier Rabin, the Science Director at WADA, said: ‘‘This is the second designer drug that we have discovered and we believe it was created purely for doping in sport. Without referring to an epidemic situation, this proves that THG was not a one-off. This new substance has been discovered so quickly because we learned some lessons from the THG story.’’,place bet odds

Christiane Ayotte, the head of the WADA-accredited lab in Montreal that carried out the analysis on DMT with scientists from Canadian customs, said: ‘‘We had a lot of fun working together and were very excited by this problem. We were very impressed at the level of sophistication of the chemical reaction that was used to produce this substance.’’
THG, she said, was a one-step modification of a known substance. ‘‘But in this case we know, because we exactly reproduced the way they made this product, that it is at a level of sophistication that we have not seen before.’’,best online poker sites free money
Ayotte warned: ‘‘They used chemical reactives that are very dangerous, involving flammable and toxic substances.’’,free poker sites for us players
Ayotte noted that the drug would probably have shown up in tests because it contained ‘‘a characteristic feature of methyltestosterone.’’ She added: ‘‘This was not clever. There is still work to be done on identifying the pharmacological properties of this drug, in terms of its effect on performance.’’,ibet888 malaysia

Ayotte said: ‘‘The publicity surrounding THG meant that designer drugs became desirable so similar substances will be found. This is business as usual for the anti-doping laboratories.’’
