Glucocorticoids Threshold Working Group

In the current International Standard of the Prohibited Substances and Methods (the Prohibited List), Glucocorticoids (GCs) are prohibited during the in-competition period when administered by oral, intravenous, intramuscular or rectal routes. The Glucocorticoids Threshold Working Group (GCTWG) has been established to evaluate the status of local injections in the WADA Prohibited List as well as to define GC-specific reporting concentrations. The GCTWG will gather and review the available literature (published and unpublished) on GC excretion studies to elaborate a novel approach that differentiates doping from acceptable medical use in sport.
