This has been made possible by years of honest research in Ayurvedic formulae and therefore people are getting results. This is not a small success, looking at the no of years, Patanjali has been in market and it’s whopping turnover.

The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine has been awarded 106 times to 210 Nobel Laureates between 1901 and 2015, as per the information depicted on nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/medicine/ laureates/. It further reads-The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2015 was divided, one half jointly to William C. Campbell and Satoshi Ōmura "for their discoveries concerning a novel therapy against infections caused by roundworm parasites" and the other half to Youyou Tu "for her discoveries concerning a novel therapy against Malaria".


Challenges of Packaging and Labeling in the Pharma Industry

A recent study carried out by Pharma IQ has shed some light on some very common problems pharmaceutical companies face in the field of Packaging and Labeling. Companies already know their internal challenges, but are often unaware of the global trend of recurring issues and solutions to overcoming them. This is because the strict rules and regulations of packaging quality control in pharma, are not only strict, but also vary across different parts of the world.

Perhaps for the first time in the history of pharmaceutical sciences (from view point of academicians, graduating pharmacy students and other stake holders) things are appearing (not confirmed) vibrant and auguring well looking at future. This has been made possible by the recent notification in Gazette of India. Though I could not construe the meaning what is being interpreted by many on social platforms and few newspapers have also published the same. The newspapers’ shots I am sharing here for better understanding of readers and other stake holders. This interpretation of certain people on social media has also been opposed by Indian Medical Association (IMA). IMA said the notification by government does not empowers or entitles registered pharmacists to practice as qualified MBBS.


Dangerous facts behind Expired Medicine Usage

The term "expired" indicates that has come to its end. People hate expired medicine to be waste. To save money and avoid a trip to the doctor for a new prescription, many people do take expired drugs.

The expiration date indicated the date the manufacturer guarantees the full potency and safety of the drug. At the time of the medication expiry date, the drug must be at least 90% of the original potency under proper storage conditions. Drug's potency begins to reduce from the moment it is manufactured; it is not in anyway spontaneous after the expiry date. Expiration date doesn’t really indicate a point at which the medication is no longer effective or has become unsafe to use. Once the expiration date has passed there is no guarantee that an expired medicine will be safe and effective.

ABSTRACT
The generic drug and branded drug is a confusing concept, and is a matter of serious concern for the pharmaceutical sector after the imposition of the rule that every physician should prescribe drugs with generic names legibly and preferably in capital letters and he/she shall ensure that there is a rational prescription and use of drugs. The generic drug should be bioequivalent before they can be prescribed as an alternative from their branded counterparts. The possible impacts over the Pharmaceutical Sector should be assessed before implementing this mammoth decision.

Demonetisation of notes and Indian pharmaceutical industry

  • Posted on: 3 April 2017
  • By: admin

After the demonetisation of 500 and 1000 rupees notes, numerous sectors are being affected and hopefully we all have been affected with that. Also Global banks and rating agencies have downgraded India’s growth in the wake of demonetisation of high level. Current year’s GDP rate has been slowed down to 6.5. But Pharmaceutical industries are growing with good margin. Even shares of pharmaceutical industries are rating higher.
