Pharma formulators to invest in growing OTC market: Report 18.4.2018 General News
Indian pharmaceutical formulators are expected to continue to make investments in consumer healthcare, wellness products and traditional OTC product categories to grow domestic non-prescription business through organic and inorganic routes, a report said. These investments would be driven by the need to further diversify the domestic prescription business, India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra) said in its report. According to Business Monitor International (BMI), India's non-prescription or OTC market contributes around 14.5 per cent to the total pharmaceutical sales and is expected to grow to USD 4.2 billion at a CAGR of 8.8 per cent over 2017-2022.

Nigeria's Boko Haram extremists hamper polio eradication 16.4.2018 General News
Islamic extremists made Imana Alhaji Gana's village in northeastern Nigeria too dangerous for health workers to vaccinate against polio. Now that she and her family have fled to a displacement camp, those workers want to catch her children in time. Here in the camps housing thousands of families seeking safety from the extremists, health teams are going from tent to tent, inoculating youngsters against the disease that withers limbs and disables children for life. At first, Gana is afraid to let the outreach workers vaccinate her baby. Eventually they persuade her that the three-week-old child is not too young for immunization, which can take place as early as the day of birth. The complicated fight against polio is yet another way the Nigeria-based extremist group Boko Haram has disrupted life in the northeast, leaving children vulnerable to an entirely preventable disease. "When such children come to the camps or host communities they become a threat to other children," said Almai ..

A bad news for restaurant owners! 16.4.2018 General News

The model broke down results for four restaurant types: fast food, fast casual, casual, and fine dining under various parameters (e.g., outbreak size, pathogen, and scenarios).The model estimated costs of 15 food-borne pathogens that caused outbreaks in restaurants from 2010 - 2015 as reported by the CDC.

Gluten isn't a villain 13.4.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
A 25-year-old gym enthusiast found himself suffering from a bloated stomach, nausea etc. and assumed that he is unable to digest wheat. When digestive problems started taking a toll on his health, he consulted a doctor and said that he may be suffering from gluten intolerance.

They added that 90% of people suffering from digestive issues assume that going on a gluten-free diet will resolve the problem. The Misconception "More than 90% of the patients I see in my OPD with complaints of bloating stomach, nausea, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, think they are suffering from these problems because of gluten intake.

A decentralised care and the provision of free direct-acting antiviral agents (DAAs) can produce high rates of cure among people with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, according to a large-scale study conducted in India.
