  • Description

    In Canada, scientists have developed a new system of laboratory tests to determine the misuse of drugs by athletes. Following the recent banning of a World Cup football player after traces of a forbidden drug were found during a routine check, sportsmen and women can now undergo a precise analysis, which shows up everything from a quick cigarette to a pep pill. Bill Laing of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation visited the test centre in Edmonton and met the man in charge of the project, Dr Ron Coutts, Professor of Medicinal Chemistry.
