Symposium: New Developments in Doping Detection

Mar 04, 2015

Session 350, Room 262, 8:30 a.m.

This Monday morning session will be presided over by Janusz Pawliszyn of the University of Waterloo (Ontario, Canada).

The session will begin with a presentation by Christiane Ayotte of the INRS-Institut Armand-Frappier (Laval, Canada) titled “Doping with Anabolic Androgenic Steroids: Adjusting to New Realities.” Ayotte’s presentation will focus on several complementary techniques, each of high specificity and sensitivity, to provide conclusive evidence to support an anti-doping violation.

Following Ayotte, Krzysztof Gorynski of Nicolaus Copernicus University Collegium Medicum (Bydgoszcz, Poland) will present “Exploring the Potential of High-Throughput Solid-Phase Microextraction for Analysis of Prohibited Substances in Urine, Plasma, Blood, and Saliva,” Gorynski will discuss the first successfully developed and validated SPME protocol that requires very little sample handling for simultaneous analysis of more than 100 prohibited doping substances from urine.

Daniel W. Armstrong of the University of Texas at Arlington (Arlington, Texas) will speak next on the topic “Chiral Separation in Doping Detection.” This presentation will provide a comparison between new and older enantiomeric separation approaches in terms of doing “real time” analysis of the drugs and their effects on biological systems.

After a short recess, Marilyn A. Huestis of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (Rockville, Maryland) will give a talk titled “Anti-Doping Testing for Novel Psychoactive Substances,” focusing on the development and validation of qualitative and quantitative LC–MS-MS assays for the most important urinary metabolites of new synthetic cannabinoids for which no metabolism has been available.

Janusz Pawliszyn, whose talk is titled “Non-Invasive In Vivo SPMS Sampling of Human Saliva,” will give the final presentation of the session. Pawliszyn will present an assay that offers fast and reliable multiresidue analysis of saliva as an attractive alternative to the standard analysis methods.
