At the World Championships 2016 in Kuala Lumpur Dr Shiro Matsuo spoke about the Anti-Doping Code and addressed the precautions players must take when taking medicine.

“I have been working for the International Table Tennis Federation on the Doping Control Panel since 2008 and on the Therapeutic Use Exemption Panel since 2011”, said Dr Shiro Matsuo. “During this time, I have dealt with some “positive” cases and a lot of Therapeutic Use Exemption applications.”
