The 72nd Indian Pharmaceutical Congress (IPC) was kicked off at the Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University in Maharashtra on January 20. The three-day event is expected to be attended by over 10,000 delegates from India and 150 from abroad.

Inaugurating the event, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said that the pharma industry has immense export potential as India has proven track record of a resilient supply chain and quality medicines for chronic ailments to more than 200 countries.

While emphasizing renewed focus on gene therapy and nano medicine, Bharat Biotech Founder Dr Krishna Ella who is focusing to develop single dose vaccine said that there is an urgent need for research linked incentive scheme especially with reference to startups in India to address the unpredictability in revenue and regulations in the pharma industry unlike other sectors. He also added that Nagpur has the potential for nano medicine cluster.

Role and potential of pharmacist need to be revisited as the second physician was highlighted by Dr Dominique Jordan from International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) as is being practised in regulated markets. He cited the example of Switzerland which has made a law allowing pharmacists to prescribe medicines in 20 types of diseases to give a heft to healthcare.

Highlighting the enhanced role of packaging in medicine and integration of augmented reality in the healthcare system, Global Ambassador of World Packaging Association Chakravarthi AVPS said packaging is your second physician because final contact between drug and patient is packaging only post prescription.

Echoing similar views, Dr Devraj Rambhau, Technical Director with Hyderabad based Pulse Pharmaceuticals Ltd said nano medicine is today the upcoming research subject towards delivery of medicine in a targeted way for chronic ailments affecting Indian population.
