The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has confirmed an amendment to Section S2.1 of the 2014 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods.

Hypoxia-Inducible Factor (HIF) activators Xenon and Argon will be added to the 2014 Prohibited List, after the recommendation was made and approved by WADA’s Executive Committee.

The revised 2014 Prohibited List will take effect on 1 September 2014.

The change to the List reads as follows:


The following substances, and other substances with similar chemical structure or similar biological effect(s), are prohibited:

1. Erythropoiesis-Stimulating Agents [e.g. erythropoietin (EPO), darbepoetin (dEPO), hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) stabilizers and activators (e.g. xenon, argon), methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta (CERA), peginesatide (Hematide)].

The revised 2014 Prohibited List can be found on WADA’s website and WCF website here.
