I think this is all because the authorities are unconvinced that there is any clear benefit to the product as a PED. That said, nobody wants to open up a grey area where technically legal Actovegin could be used as an excuse for possession or use of IV equipment.Cloxxki said:I seem to remember the Russian was also hauling around IV equipment. So claiming he was just going to drink the stuff may not have held up there.
Is EPO allowed for oral use?
Since when is a substance only banned based on selected modes of administration? If it's forbidden for IV, can I get away with carrying a bottle of the stuff to a race, as long as I don't have a needle on me?
