WADA issues alert on GW501516

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has issued an alert regarding the black market substance GW501516, which it understands is being used by some athletes.

According to WADA, GW501516 was a developmental drug that was withdrawn from research and terminated when serious toxicities were discovered in pre-clinical studies.

It is believed to cause serious side effects and WADA is urging all athletes not to succumb to the temptation of using the substance for performance enhancement.
