It is most commonly used now as an additive in several injectable forms of penicillin to reduce the pain associated with intramuscular injections. Because of this, procaine is very difficult drug in a regulatory environment.

dermorphinDermorphin is a unique peptide that has been isolated from the skin of certain South American frogs. It has been determined that dermorphin produces analgesia in certain test systems and that it produces these effects by interacting at the same receptor as morphine. However, dermorphin has been shown to be more potent than morphine on a mg per mg basis. Dermorphin is not approved by the FDA for use in any species, and use in the horse for any purpose is not approved.

triamcinolone acetonide and methylprednisolone Triamcinolone Acetonide is an RCI Class 4; corticosteroid used for the treatment of multiple conditions. Often used in joints to control inflammation resulting from degenerative joint disease. Methylprednisolone is an RCI Class 4; quick-acting and longer-lasting corticosteroid used to treat inflammation. Often used in the joint (tradename Depo Medrol®) to alleviate the symptoms associated with degenerative joint disease (arthritis).

theobrominePlant alkaloid found in chocolate as well as in a number of other foods, including tea plant, that can act as a bronchodilator. Theobromine, theophylline and caffeine are all methylxanthines and their metabolism is interchanged, so one can sometimes find any of them from the administration of any of the other two compounds. Most consider theobromine to be an environmental or dietary contaminant. Theobromine is also found in husks of the cocoa nut. Since the husks are sometimes used as bedding for horses, there are opportunities for horses to be exposed to the theobromine in the bedding. Furthermore, shipping containers that were previously used to transport cocoa may contaminate horse feed if the containers are not adequately cleaned. Findings are quite rare above the 2 mcg/mL threshold.

caffeine and 2 metabolites of caffeine (2nd violation for this horse within 1 yr)Caffeine is an RCI Class 2; while caffeine has no known therapeutic use in the racehorse, many of the findings are the result of contamination due to the ubiquitous nature of caffeine in products such as colas, chocolate and coffee. Positives that result from suspected contamination would result in lower penalties. Theophylline is an RCI Class 3; used to treat respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Is present in tea and cocoa beans so it could also be an environmental contaminant. Suspected cases of contamination would warrant lower penalties.

DMSO overageRCI Class 5; often used as part of topical leg paints due its ability to improve the absorption of other substances, has anti-inflammatory properties and can be administered for this purpose as an oral or intravenous jug. Positive tests are typically the result of the latter use due to the small concentrations resulting from topical use.

caffeine and theophylline (2nd offense)Caffeine is an RCI Class 2; while caffeine has no known therapeutic use in the racehorse, many of the findings are the result of contamination due to the ubiquitous nature of caffeine in products such as colas, chocolate and coffee. Positives that result from suspected contamination would result in lower penalties. Theophylline is an RCI Class 3; used to treat respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Is present in tea and cocoa beans so it could also be an environmental contaminant. Suspected cases of contamination would warrant lower penalties.
