PTD getting VINNOVA’s support
Pro Test Diagnostics AB succeeded in securing VINNOVA’s support to continue its focus on a detection test for re-transfusion of person’s own blood; allowing the individual to gain an advantage over others in sport performance.

Why doping in sport is so hard to catch
The Economist explains:
UCI releases CIRC report into doping and governance
“The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has released the long-awaited report from the Cycling Independent Reform Commission (CIRC), an independent, three-member panel tasked with investigating the causes and patterns of doping within cycling, as well as the role of the UCI and other bodies in those patterns.”
“The result of a yearlong investigation, the report paints a thorough portrait of extensive doping, cover-ups, conflicts of interest, ineffectual leadership, infighting, wasted resources, and poor governance.
It relies upon internal UCI documents and 174 interviews with active and retired professional riders, team managers, staff from both the UCI and the Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation (CADF), event organizers, laboratory personnel, anti-doping organizations, journalists, and more.”
