Fake or Real…Simple way to check

நாம் வாங்கும் மருந்து உண்மையானதா இல்லை போலி மருந்தா என்பதை கண்டுபிடிக்க எளிய வழி:

மருந்து பட்டையின் பின் ஒன்பது இலக்க கோட் எண் ஒன்று அச்சிடபட்டு இருக்கும். அந்த எண்ணை 9901099010 என்ற எண்ணுக்கு எஸ்எம்எஸ் அனுப்பியோ என்ற போர்டலிலோ கொடுத்து சரி பார்த்து கொள்ளலாம்.

It’s very useful to everyone…..
In India if anytime you are worried if the medicine is not just fake or counterfeit, You can send a 9 digit code as SMS to 9901099010 and you will get a reply back if the drug was authentic.
Whenever a unit of medicine is produced at the factory, it is labeled with a unique code. When you purchase a medicine you can send this code which is at back of the unit to 9901099010 You will receive an SMS which tells if you the medicine is genuine and provides you will batch number, expiration, and other information.

This drug authentication service is provided by Pharma Secure, a global innovator in drug authentication technologies and software. It provides two ways to check the authentication of any drugs, one is through their website portal where you simply have to enter the authentication code printed on the back side of the drug, and the other is through your mobile phone by sending the authentication code as SMS to +91 9901099010 . On behalf of the manufacturers, Pharma Secure shares the complete details of the drugs like its genuinity, expiry dates and manufacturing details.

This service came into existence after a mandate issued by the DGFT – Directorate General of Foreign Trade , which makes it compulsory for medicines to have barcodes entailing unique product identification code, unique serial number, batch number and details of expiry date. The deadline for this mandate is July 2012.

Straight to the veins: Vitamin C shot to fight work fatigue

Vitamin C shot to fight work fatigue

Vitamin C shot to fight work fatigue Scientists may have just got the quickest and safest antidote for work-related fatigue: A shot of vitamin C in the vein.

A team of scientists in Seoul has found that high doses of intravenous vitamin C reduce fatigue significantly in office workers.Doctors in India are eager to see clinical applications of the.

“It sounds good,” says Chennai-based endocrinologist Dr V Mohan. “If longterm follow-up studies show similar results, this could mean that people working long hours can remain energetic with vitamin C shots.”

“Dr Chang H Yeom, corresponding author of the study, says this will soon be a common treatment. “Fatigue threatens our health by causing oxidative stress. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that helps you recover. It also improves your immunity,” he says, prescribing 10g-20 g of vitamin C for a dose.

While taking the vitamin orally yielded only limited results, the latest study shows intravenous administration produced the best results. Ayurvedics, meanwhile, say the study is but an extension of traditional wisdom.


“Gooseberries, which are rich in vitamin C is known for its regenerative properties ,” says Dr K T Jayakrishnan , chief medical officer of Shantha Ayurveda Hospital, Chennai. While Yeom admits the injections can cause mild diarrhoea and vascular pain, Dr Neeta Singh, biochemistry head at the AIIMS, New Delhi, feels high doses can also cause skin rashes.

Merely 40 hours of video gaming can cure cataracts…

Merely 40 hours of video gaming ‘can cure cataracts

40 hours of fast-paced action gaming could improve the vision of people born with cataracts, a new study has claimed.

According to a psychologist, surgery and contact lenses do not always work, and people experience visual difficulties into adulthood.

However, some of these effects can be reversed if the individual follows a short course of “game therapy”.

“After playing an action video game for just 40 hours over four weeks, the patients were better at seeing small print, the direction of moving dots, and the identity of faces,” the Daily Mail quoted Daphne Maurer, a psychologist as saying.

Maurer from McMaster University in Canada has researched how vision develops in individuals born with cataracts in both eyes.

Previous research found that a 40-hour “course” of video gaming could be used to treat “lazy eye” or amblyopia, a brain disorder in which the vision in one eye fails to develop properly.

“Those improvements tell us that the adult brain is still plastic enough to be trained to overcome sensory deficiencies,” Maurer said.

Maurer is internationally known for her work on “synaesthetes” – a condition that makes people’s brains link different senses.

The study will be presented at the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Vancouver, in a session called ‘The Effects of Early Experience on Lifelong Functioning: Commitment and Resilience’.
