Prognosis the medical outcome of a corrective prediction, physicians become aware of a particular drug through promotional strategies. If all relevant information received is positive, the drug may be tried on few patients’. As a matter of fact if the outcomes of the trials are acceptable physicians will shift and may be more interested to prescribe the drugs consistent. Prescribing drugs is a standard component of most physicians’ practices. It is an important area of practice that requires appropriate knowledge, skill and professional judgment. To improve patient safety when prescribing, these qualities set out expectations for physicians who prescribe drugs. However in connection with the physician’s prescription pattern, Indian pharmaceutical industry is at a turning point. The pharmaceutical firms have to change their strategies for the challenges ahead. Quality systems, innovation, manufacturing and marketing competence are associate factors that affects physicians prescription pattern. The efficacy of drug discovery process has been reported to have suffered a major transformation. New drug discovery has to be strictly adhere to the tight intellectual property rights to ensure effective and efficient, prescriptions and protections. Further clinical and behavioral characteristics of the patient, research and the pressures from drug firms, high curing effect; habitual or non-habitual choice, behavior pattern of patients, peer influence of physicians (community of physicians) and education and advertising are reviewed factors affecting physician’s prescription pattern.

INTRODCUTION
Worldwide the Pharmaceutical industry dynamics is undergoing a significant transformation in terms of cutting edge advancement in the areas of pharmaceutical R&D specially the biotechnology based products, innovative drug delivery technologies, and large scale efficient pharmaceutical manufacturing capacities and so on. According to the list published by FDA for GMP facilities producing generic drug products and APIs for the US market 70% of the APIs and FDFs (Finished dosage Form Facilities) are produced outside US and India counts for 23.7 % of the API and FDF facilities and is by far the largest country exporting to the US. Even China counts for less than a half of the FDF and API facilities exporting to the US, as compared to India[1]

ABSTRACT
Designed in and named after Jaipur, India, the prosthetic foot was designed to be inexpensive, water-resistant, and quick to fit and manufacture. Several field trials case studies were made and this artificial aid was found to be very comfortable and acceptable to the amputee population following floor sitting culture.  The quality assertion and standards related to these prostheses at affordable cost assume great significance especially for India and other developing countries. Environmental issues such as biodegradability of various components like microcellular rubber, tread rubber, nylon cord, cushion compound and skin colour rubber and other. It is necessary that biodegradation issues should be widely held at various platforms beside its bioengineering and designing issues for proper handling and storage concerns. Approval standards and quality control should be a part of the development effort prior to regular production and use of these low cost prostheses.

ABSTRACT
The science of physics is understood to be very away from the Pharmaceutical Science. But in the real context, Physics is found to be most densely involved in the Pharmaceutical Science than any other field of science. Physics can be considered as a backbone that supports Pharmaceutical Science. The advance technology that describes that formation and its mode of action to the biological organ is Physics. The structure, action and result of Pharmaceutical material are explained by the theories of Physics.

ABSTRACT
The objective of the present study is to evaluate the level of malnutrition and the impact of households on the nutritional status of school children in a rural area of north karnataka region. Factors included:  the number of children of 5 to 14 years of age in the family, occupation of the parents, family income, maternal education, type of residence (kacha  or pucca) and children gender. The study was a cross-sectional descriptive survey using a structured questionnaire which includes Anthropometric measurements height (H/A) and weight (W/A). Two hundred and seventy school children representing a rural area of Raichur district, North karnataka were participated in the study. Reference standards used were those of WHO growth charts. The results showed the level of stunting and underweight in school children as per percentile standards from the WHO. Most of the boys and girls of the study fall under < 3rd percentile. Hence, malnutrition was significantly higher among the school children. The higher the level of the mother’s education, the lower the level of child’s underweight was observed. In the present study, growing children by and large are deprived of good nutrition on account of their poor socio-economic status, ignorance and lack of health promotional facilities. The study findings imply that efforts for redressing child under nutrition issues in rural areas should focus on factors associated with development outcomes such as family income, maternal education and the creation of employment.
