Question: What are the procedures for applying for a therapeutic use exemption (other than for T.R.T.) for an unarmed combatant in Nevada?
Answer: Unarmed combatants may apply for a therapeutic use for certain substances found on WADA's list of prohibited substances. If an unarmed combatant believes he or she has a therapeutic use for such a substance, he or she must apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (T.U.E.). It is the responsibility of any licensed contestant, or contestant who may be seeking a license in Nevada, to apply for a therapeutic use exemption from the Nevada Athletic Commission. Failure to obtain a therapeutic use exemption for a prohibited substance that is detected after the fact will be considered a violation of NRS Chapter 467, which may be grounds for a disciplinary complaint if a contestant is already licensed, or denial of a license.
