Seminar on Nutraceuticals

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be the food”, a quote attributed to Hippocrates, is an evidence to the fact that the importance of food in maintaining health and quality of life was conceptualized more than 2500 years ago. Nutraceuticals, coined from the terms “nutrition” and “pharmaceuticals”, is a broad umbrella term that is used to describe foods (or parts of foods) that provide medical or health benefits. 

The genesis and growth of the nutraceutical industry can be attributed to numerous factors. Consumer awareness about the positive role of nutrition in improving health is constantly on the rise. In addition, regulatory bodies have been consistently becoming supportive of promotion of use of nutraceuticals and functional foods for improving public health.

Despite the constant growth in the nutraceutical sector, there is scope for developing effective ways to improve the in vivo bio-availability and efficacy of these nutraceutical molecules. The seminar aims to lay a strong foundation on the novel polyherbal delivery formulations, clinical, IPR and regulatory concerns related to nutraceuticals. The seminar would serve as platform for formulation scientists, business leaders and researchers to exchange knowledge and discuss proposals regarding further development of nutraceuticals.

Student felicitated for perception studies of herbal medicines at ‘Insight 2018’

Atul Prajapati, a healthcare management student won gold medal for the best ‘live project’ at the recently concluded ‘Insight 2018’ annual pharma conference held recently in Mumbai. The gold medal was instituted by leading pharma consultancy firm Interlink.

Atul won the gold for a project to find out perception of chemists and consumers on herbal medicines. He has also carried out preferences for wound cleansing and generate awareness on newer molecules.

‘Insight’ is an annual conference on pharma and healthcare organized by Mumbai-based education group IES. It aims at inspiring the young budding professionals by providing an insight into the current pharma and healthcare scenario.

“We have been instituting the medal for the past four years at Insight. It will be a source of encouragement for ICS MCRC students who have excelled in the Live Project. There is a dearth of quality professionals in the pharma and healthcare industry in the country today. The industry and academia should encourage more such competitions, which could be good opportunity for spotting the right talent,” said Dr RB Smarta, managing director, Interlink.

Among its varied consulting roles in areas including branding and due-diligence, Interlink has also been instrumental in providing skills-related training to pharma professionals, customized to the needs of the industry.

Insight 2018 puts forth the perspective of patient care, patient delivery and patient monitoring in healthcare followed by panel discussion by industry experts.

According to Dr Smarta, time is ripe for the industry to move into a patient oriented paradigm from a product oriented one. This will help in improving the quality of a patient’s life along with achieving positive clinical outcomes at a realistic economic expenditure, he said. Modern data-based technologies help in achieving effective patient monitoring and thereby good patient compliance, he observed.
