En workshop i Stockholm av World Anti-Doping Agency och Karolinska Institutet summeras med bl.a. följande:

The use of genetic information to select for or discriminate against athletes should be strongly discouraged.

Men också en uppmaning att lyfta upp frågan för fortsatt diskussion:

Greater interactions should be encouraged among the sports community, professional scientific organizations, licensing agencies and clinical research oversight bodies to stimulate awareness of the potential illicit use of gene transfer techniques for athletic and other enhancement purposes and to develop appropriate sanction mechanisms for illegal/or unethical application of gene transfer in sport.

Sports organizations at all levels, from student and amateur levels to international elite levels, should promote knowledge about the potential dangers associated with the misuse of genetic manipulations for athletic enhancement.
