Satya Brahma,Chairman & Editor-In-Chief – Pharma Leaders Group in his opening address said “the change of guard in America with Donald Trump becoming US president, the impact of healthcare/pharma business will have a significant impact as Trump win might mean opportunities for Indian pharma.Trump had proposed to lift entry barriers for drug makers that offer safe, reliable and cheaper products. India contributes to nearly a third of all drugs sold in the US and this is unlikely to change for now, given the thrust of both Democratic and Republican parties on affordable health care. The US market will, however, continue to see pricing pressure as a result of consolidation of hospitals and insurance companies”. Increasing focus on Patients safety & concerns by hospitals & pharma companies will be key to healthcare innovations said Satya Brahma.

Asia’s Most Valuable & Breakthrough Innovator in Cardio Thoracic  & Vascular Surgery 2015 Award Conferred to Dr. Kaushal Pandey, Cardio Thoracic and Vascular Surgeon

The 8th Annual Pharmaceutical Leadership Summit & Business Leadership Awards was successfully concluded at the financial capital of india in Mumbai at Hotel Hilton today where more than 300 top leaders of the healthcare industry had gathered to be the part of the historic debate on  “Pharma Leaders 2015, Brand India Winning”. Widely acclaimed in the healthcare industry as the pioneer in recognizing the leaders of today & tomorrow, Pharma Leaders brought together veteran healthcare leaders under one platform. The leadership Summit in the afternoon session debated crucial topics such as Healthcare Insurance, Medical Tourism, Challenges of Indian Pharma Industry. Hinduja Hospital CEO Mr. Gautam Khanna debated on the challenges of Indian Healthcare Insurance while Padma Sree Prof Dr. Shashank Joshi addressed on Brand India.

 

 

 

Dr.Kaushal Pandey made a passionate presentation on World Class Individuals : mediocre institutions: & failing medical education. The Award Winning Cardiac Surgeon stressed the need for qualatative improvement of healthcare services in the country to make healthcare accessable to the indian masses.

Expressing concern over the falling standard of education in both public and private medical colleges affecting patient care and healthcare quality in the country, Dr Kaushal Pandey, one of the renowned consultant cardiovascular surgeons associated with P. D. Hinduja National Hospital & Research Center, has stressed on the need for a major overhaul of the medical education system to produce quality doctors to ensure high quality healthcare.

“India produces around 50,000 MBBS doctors annually as compared to 18,000 doctors in USA but training of our doctors are not up to the mark as compared to doctors abroad. In India, the MBBS students do not get enough exposure to clinical materials and surgical procedures during the course to become well trained doctors, and there are a chunk of students who don’t have aptitude to become a doctor but they join a medical college just because their parents manage to secure seats for them in the medical college. Such doctors are risk for patients. The quality of the faculty in medical colleges is also not up to the mark,” said Dr. Pandey.

There is no legal compulsion for doctors to undergo re-training in the country. There is no system to audit the doctors on any quality of care measures which provide them freedom to do whatever they want after the basic qualification is secured. In absence of scrutinisation and monitoring to ensure accountability of doctors in public hospitals in both urban and rural areas, absenteeism among doctors has become common sight leaving scores of needy patients in lurch. It is not the case with private hospitals which have a stringent monitoring system to make doctors accountable to patient care, he said.

“If the government is really worried about people’s health and if the country is to stay competitive globally, it has to exercise its authority to introduce reform to medical entrance test so that students having aptitude to become a doctor get admission to medical colleges. Commercialisation of medical education flooding the market with poor quality doctors should be stopped at the earliest without any loss. The exorbitant capitation fees charged by private medical institutes from students should be regulated to make education affordable for deserving and needy students and steps need to be taken to overhaul the regulatory framework pertaining to quality of instruction, faculty development and curbing private practice,” noted cardiac surgeon said.

In order to overcome the shortage of quality faculty members in public medical colleges, the government needs to revive the old honourary system attached to healthcare in the country where talented, renowned doctors used to conduct classes for students in government medical colleges for two-three days imparting them theoretical and practical insight into the course. They used to charge nominal fees for it, he added.

He said that the government also needs to make integrated protocol-based diagnoses and treatment systems into the teaching programme for medical students and make them take a test after a certain period to ensure their skills updation and encourage use of technology with applications like clinical decision support systems to improve the quality of healthcare delivery.

Geographical location and infrastructure facilities should be taken into account in starting an AIIMS like institutes in the country by the government to ensure maximum optimisation of such facilities, he concluded.

Of the 4,000-odd multi-crore infrastructure projects in the country, only nine (0.21%) – with a total investment of Rs 938 crore – are in the health sector, according to data published by the finance ministry.The public-private partnership (PPP) projects range from diagnostic centres to super-specialty hospitals. Investments in the health sector are far lower than those in the transport and energy sectors. The lack of health facilities in India’s villages reflects the low investment.About 20% (35,389) of the 182,709 public health facilities in rural areas do not have their own premises, according to a 2014 rural health statistics report. There was a shortage of 6,700 (23%) public health centres and 2,350 (33%) community health centres as of March 31, 2014, according to data tabled in the Rajya Sabha.Government spending on health has come down from Rs 37,000 crore ($5.5 billion) in 2013-14 to Rs 30,000 crore ($4.5 billion) in 2014-15. India spent $69 per capita on health in 2013, the lowest among developing nations. Even poorer economies like Indonesia and Mexico did better, according to data published by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development

The leadership Summit in the afternoon session debated crucial topics such as Healthcare Insurance, Medical Tourism, Challenges of Indian Pharma Industry. Microlab’s CARIPILL received the top recognition at the Pharma Leaders Power Brand Awards. Mr. Ashok Jain, Executive Director of Microlabs received the Trophy & Certificate of Excellence from Mr. Louis Banks who has often  been referred to as the Godfather of Indian Jazz & the iconic music composer was the Chief Guest of the evening conferred to top achievers of the country & urged the industry to provide affordable medicines to the common masses in india.

 Satya Brahma, founder of Pharmaleaders in the opening address lambasted the union government for the faulty healthcare reforms & policy paralysis. In a scathing attack to the policy makers, Satya said “the Healthcare Challenges in India at present are of different dimensions & more of cleaning the system at the helm who are responsible for formulating laws, rules & regulations. While we can’t ignore the concerns of the pharma companies facing complex issues in regulatory legal hurdles in IPR challenges, pricing &other issues related to patent regime. Pharmaleaders believe that the evolving global and domestic market dynamics are likely to result in significant opportunities and challenges for pharma companies operating in India, both Indian companies as well as Indian affiliates of MNC companies. Some key issue areas are already starting to capture the attention of leadership teams within the industry.


Bengaluru-based Micro Labs, a fully integrated pharma company recently launched Caripill, which helps to increase the platelet count in patients suffering from dengue.  Approved by the scientific and regulatory authority, the pill is made from Carica Papaya leaf extract and reportedly does not have any side-effects.  Being a product of extensive R&D and clinical trials conducted by Micro Labs, the pill has proved its safety and efficacy in about one lakh patients across India, claims a company release.

MicrolabsCaripill Syrup Pack shotCaripill Tablet Pack shot
Speaking about Caripill, Dr AC Gowda Fortis Hospital, Bangalore and Principal Investigator, Clinical Trial for Caripill said, “The encouraging results on the dengue patients has shown the immense potential of what Caripill is capable of, that eventually can be administered on patients with other life-threatening diseases, like leukaemia among others, which requires intense chemotherapy leading to loss of platelets.” He added, “After an extensive research across two years conducting clinical trials on 250 patients, we have seen positive results with a dramatic decrease in the haemorrhage condition, besides, none of the patients who are administered the drug have had to undergo blood transfusion so far.”

Caripill costs Rs 25 per tablet with the dosage of administering one pill (1100 mg) three times a day, for five days.

No specific treatment was available for treating dengue, except for some paracetamol tablets (mostly Dolo 650 by Micro Labs) to reduce the fever/ temperature. However, immediately post the fever reduces, the platelets count on blood starts falling leading to serious health consequences. Despite considerable efforts to control the mosquito population, dengue fever has emerged, spread and established itself rapidly. Looking into the limited current modalities of treatment and its affordability to a fewer sections of population, Caripill can be of considerable use.

Ashok Jain, Executive Director, Micro Labs, stated, “Over four decades, we have been successful in manufacturing oral solids, liquids, topical and injectable medication for patients across verticals – diabetology, cardiology, ophthalmology, dermatology, pain/analgesics, etc.  Today, I would like to congratulate our team at Micro Labs for making a remarkable breakthrough in treating moderate to severe dengue cases with the newly introduced Caripill that comes at an affordable cost.”

Dr Nagabhushan KH, VP-Medical Services, Micro Labs, stated, “At present, the popular treatment for dengue is by oral consumption of juice crudely extracted from the non-standardised and unhygienic papaya leaves with no clear dosage specified, that could have a detrimental impact on sufferers. Our new Caripill, has received positive feedback from doctors treating patients with dengue and are confident the usage of the pill can be further extended to treating patients with other life-threatening disorders that require restoration of blood platelets.”  He further added, “The rising number of dengue cases among children, has driven us to introduce a paediatric Caripill syrup for easy consumption and plan to launch it soon.”

Caripill has been made available in all major pharmacies across India.

Reportedly it doesn’t have any side effects. According to the clinical trials, Caripill has shown positive results. A plus point is, none of them had to undergo blood transfusion. And henceforth, they are thinking of utilizing in patients with leukemia who have thrombocytopenia post chemotherapy, in future. As far as I have come across, it costs 25/- per tablet. Presently if we see the limited modalities of treatment, and the fact that it can be afforded only by fewer strata of the society, I think yes, Caripill can be worth it. Yes, caripill has some questions before it is fully accepted as platelet booster. However, given the scenario of dengue where platelet transfusion is the only option for severe depletion, caripill is a worth trying drug. Totally chemical free, I do recommend its usage and have found it to be useful. It defenitely reduced the need for platelet transfusions in some but not in all., to me, it is a worth trying drug but make sure you take it only after your doctor suggests it.Yes Micro Labs has introduced Caripill which is tablet containing leaf extract of papaya (Carica Papaya Leaf extract). It is available in market and many doctors are prescribing & have found it to be useful. However, it is advised to be taken after discussing with your doctor. One should know when to start taking Caripill (ie at what level of platelet count) and doctors are best to judge. You can contact Micro Labs @ +919845855122 by sending a message with your details and a request to call back. Caripill Cell will call back with more information.
