Chairperson: Prof Fabio Pigozzi (ITA) Members: Prof. Joseph Cummiskey (IRL)Prof. Alessia Di Gianfrancesco (ITA)Prof. Paolo Borrione (ITA) Overview: If an athlete, to treat a pathological condition, requires a medication falling under the Prohibited List, a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) may give that athlete the authorization to take the medicament he needs. Any decision regarding the grant, withdrawal, denial and recognition of TUE’s are taken by the UIPM Therapeutic Use Exemption Committee (TUEC). The TUEC is composed by at least 3 physicians with experience in the care and treatment of athletes and a recognized knowledge of clinical, sports and exercise medicine. The TUEC may seek whatever medical or scientific expertise it deems appropriate in reviewing the circumstances of any application for a TUE. A Therapeutic Use Exemption will be granted only in strict accordance with the following criteria: 1. The athlete should submit an application for a TUE on a form provided by the UIPM. 2. The athlete would experience a significant impairment to health if the Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method were to be withheld in the course of treating an acute or chronic medical condition. 3. The therapeutic use of the Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method would produce no additional enhancement of performance other than that which might be anticipated by a return to a state of normal health following the treatment of a legitimate medical condition. 4. There would be no reasonable therapeutic alternative to the Use of the otherwise Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method.
