PHARMACIST WEIGHS IN: Also in Sydney, Chip Le Grand wrote pharmacist Nima Alavi, who prepared the peptides that sports scientist Stephen Dank "allegedly injected into Essendon players," said that he did not know "with any certainty what they were given." And "neither, he said, could the anti-doping investigators." Alavi said that a batch of Thymosin peptide he supplied to Dank in Jan. '12 was "intended for testing only and not for human use." ASADA suspects that Dank "administered those peptides, untested, to Essendon players." Dank denied this. Alavi said that if that happened, it was "impossible to know whether the players were given Thymosin Beta 4, a substance that is banned, Thymosin Alpha 1, a substance that is permitted, the similarly permitted Thymomodulin, or something else altogether" (THE AUSTRALIAN, 6/20).
