Doping, intended as the administration of banned substances to ameliorate fitness and improve athletic performance, has became a tremendous problem for the public health. The use of artificial means to modify results of sport competitions might elicit serious health consequences, corrupt fairness, and currently represents a sport illicit and a penal crime, as currently sanctioned by the Italian legislation.
