Doping-Meldonium can take months to leave body, says drug maker

LONDON, March 21 (Reuters) – The drug that has produced more than 100 positive doping tests since being outlawed on Jan. 1 can take “several months” to completely leave the body, the manufacturer of meldonium told Reuters on Monday.

A number of athletes say they took the cardiac drug before it was banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

Latvian manufacturer Grindeks said “its terminal elimination from the body may last for several months” and depends on a variety of factors such as dose, duration of treatment, and sensitivity of testing methods. (Editing by: Ossian Shine)

Hundreds of workers and retirees are rescued from the pension lifeboat

Hundreds of workers and retirees will have their pensions protected after they were rescued in a deal that unions hope will set a precedent.

Around 350 members of car parts manufacturer Covpress’s pension scheme faced reduced payouts when the scheme was sent to the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) as the company went into administration last October.

But they have been transferred to the new owner, steel giant Liberty House.

It is thought this is the first time any pension scheme has been taken out of the fund. 

Eddie Williams, joint administrator from Grant Thornton, said it was due to the willingness of all parties, the financial health of the scheme, and the strength of the business.

Covpress’s scheme had around £20million in assets. 

Unite regional officer Adrian Ross welcomed Liberty’s actions, adding: ‘It reverses a trend where companies or potential new owners think they can dump their pension responsibilities onto the PPF, which is underpinned by the taxpayer.’

Liberty’s takeover of Covpress this week saved 740 skilled jobs at the plant in Coventry.
