    INDO-AFRICAN SYMPOSIUM 2016

    Association of Pharmacy Professionals (APP) International Ethiopia Branch and Haryana State Branch organized Indo-African Symposium on "Biotechnological Production of Phytopharmaceuticals" on 7th September, 2016 at Department of Pharmacy, Lingaya's University, Faridabad, Haryana, India. Event was organized under the able guidance of Patrons Prof. J.P. Gupta, Chancellor, Lingaya's University, Prof. R.K. Chauhan, Vice Chancellor, Lingaya's University and Prof. G.V. RamarajuPro Vice Chancellor, Lingaya's University. Dr. Ajay Sharma from MizanTepi University, Ethiopia was the 'Guest of Honour'. Prof. Saurabh Dahiya, Vice President, APP Haryana State Branch and Head of Department at Department of Pharmacy, Lingaya's University, served as 'Convener'; Prof. AshutoshKar, Professor Emeritus at Lingaya's University served as Organizing Secretary; Dr. Sachin Dubey as Scientific Committee chairman in absentia; Further, Dr. Rajiv Dahiya, President APP and Director, School of Pharmacy, Faculty of Medical Sciences, The University of the West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad & Tobago acted as 'Organizing Chairman' in absentia. Scientific sessions were initiated with keynote lecture of Dr. Ajay Sharma from MizanTepi University, Ethiopia, who addressed the gathering on 'Biotechnological Production of Phytopharmaceuticals'. Dr. Ajay Sharma discussed that plant secondary metabolites are important sources of many phytochemicals. In recent years, the demand for these products has increased dramatically but the supply of the source plants is often limited because of disease, changes in climate, changes in the economic development, problems in the growing regions or the amount of secondary metabolites in naturally grown plants are very low. Thus plant tissue culture has long attracted the attention of scientists and offers an alternative source for production of these products under controlled conditions.Consequently, many studies have been undertaken to unravel biosynthetic pathways and understand their regulation or, more simply, to find practical approaches to increasing yield. These include selection of high yielding cell lines, optimization of culture conditions, precursor feeding and elicitation.

    Another interesting session by Dr. Ajay Sharma was on "Standardization of herbal drugs and biotechnological approaches". He discussed that in the past few decades there has been an exponential growth in the field of herbal medicine due to its safety, efficacy, less side effects and wide consumer acceptability. Commercialization of the manufacture of herbal medicines to meet this increasing demand has resulted in decline in their quality, primarily due to a lack of adequate regulations concerning to this sector of medicine. Hence, there is an urgent need to develop a systematic approach and well-designed methodologies for the standardization of herbal drugs and herbal formulations. According to World Health Organization (WHO) standardization is the process involving the physicochemical evaluation of crude drug covering numerous parameters like macroscopic and microscopic examination, determination of foreign matter, loss on drying (LOD), moisture content, total ash, acid insoluble ash, water soluble ash, determination of pH, successive hot extractive values, water soluble extractives, alcohol soluble extractives, ether soluble extractives, preliminary phytochemical screening, TLC/HPTLC profile of different extracts, assay for constituents (Flavonoids, Phenolicsetc), test for heavy / toxic metals (Cadmium, Lead, Arsenic and Mercury), analysis for aflatoxins and pesticide residue in all drugs, total microbial load, safety, efficacy and stability assessment of finished product, documentation of safety and risk based on experience, provision of product information to consumer and product promotion. Recently, the use of molecular markers and biotechnological approaches came as an effective approach used in the standardization of herbal drugs. Therefore, the standardization of the herbal drugs is essential for assuring the quality, safety and efficacy therapeutic effectiveness of the herbal drugs and to check any adulteration or non-deliberate mixing in commercial batches.

    Dr. Ajay Sharma was conferred with 'APP Young Achiever's Award 2016' for his vital academic and scientific contribution in the pharmacy profession by Prof. Saurabh Dahiya, Vice President APP Haryana State and Professor and Head , Department of Pharmacy, Lingaya's University and Prof. AshutoshKar, Professor Emeritus Lingaya's University. Scientific sessions ended with lecture of Prof. Saurabh Dahiya on the topic 'Careers in Pharmacy'. The attendance in symposium was about 200. Event was witnessed by all the faculty members of Department of Pharmacy, Lingaya's University. Pharmacy students of Lingaya's University presented very good cultural show also.

    Industrial Visit

    Industrial visit was carried out at Mother Dairy Plant, New Delhi on 08th April, 2016 for B.Pharm 2nd Semester and D.Pharm 1st Year students along-with all the faculty members of School of Pharmacy, Lingaya's University. The main objective behind the visit was to make students aware about various Industrial activities like Collection, Filtration, Quality Control and Quality Assurance, Pasteurization, Packaging, Cold Supply Chain, Transportation, Marketing, Financing and Human Resource Management. This gave them a feel that how Industrial setups work in very efficient and managed way. The company is located in Patparganj in New Delhi. As soon as we reached company we were guided by an expert on plant operationsgiving us an initial orientation session about the company. It was great to know how an Indian Company operates at par with international standards. Thereafter, the students visited the actual production floor followed by other departments like Quality Control where they demonstrated the various chemical and physical tests which can be performed on milk to assess its purity. At the ending of the tour the students enjoyed ice cream and flavored milk offered by the Mother Dairy plant.

    World Pharmacist Day 2015

    World Pharmacist Day 2015 was celebrated at Lingaya's University, Faridabad on 24th September, 2015. The purpose of World Pharmacists Day is to encourage activities that promote and advocate for the role of the pharmacist in improving health in every corner of the world. This year's theme, developed by FIP, was "Pharmacist(s): your partner(s) in health". Medicines must go hand in hand with pharmaceutical expertise, or in other words, with pharmacists. The programme at LU was devised and conducted by students of Bachelor of Pharmacy and Diploma in Pharmacy. The chief guest on this occasion was Prof. Kanchan Kohli from JamiaHamdard. She gave a very informative session on the career aspects in Pharmaceutical Sciences. The Chancellor Prof. J.P. Gupta and Vice Chancellor Prof. R.K. Chauhan blessed the students with their kind presence during the event. Mrs. Archana Mudgal, Registrar, Pharmacy Council of India also conveyed her best wishes for the event through a letter to the department. Faculty, staff and students from other departments of the university also attended the event. Students took Pharmacist oath and promised to themselves in the name of God that they would always work in the best interest of the patients.
