Intas launches the World’s First SB-100mg Itraconazole

This medical breakthrough will significantly reduce cost and increase compliance in patients undergoing Antifungal Therapy

Ahmedabad (Gujarat) [India], October 16: One of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, Intas Pharmaceuticals, has made a progressive breakthrough in the Antifungal Therapy domain with the launch of the world’s first Super Bioavailable Itraconazole-SB 100mg by the Brand Name of Itaspor-SB Forte/Subawin. It has been recently approved by Indian Regulatory Authorities.

Conventional Itraconazole mainstay drug to fight fungal infection has high result variance and low patient compliance because of dosing dependence upon food, acidic beverage, antacids consumption etc. and overall cost of treatment.

Itaspor SB Forte/Subawinis expected to improve patient compliance and reduce the Doctor’s counselling time. It will reduce dosing to half. Furthermore, patients can take it with or without a meal with just water or as directed by the physician. The cost of the therapy is also reduced substantially.

As per published literature and clinicians’ experience, the Itraconazole molecule has low blood drug concentration, affecting safety and efficacy when taken orally. These blood levels highly vary from patient to patient. Moreover, the recommendation to take it with a full fatty meal and an acidic beverage further reduces patient compliance and adds to the problem of desired blood drug concentration. Another factor is the cost of therapy for fungal infection patients, as treatment duration varies from 3 to 8 weeks.

“Intas’ newest formulation within the 25-year-old brand Itasporis formulated with Super Bioavailable (SB) Technology that makes 1 Itaspor-SB Forte capsule equivalent to conventional 200mg Itraconazole,” said Dr Alok Chaturvedi, Senior Vice-president & Head – Medical Affairs, Intas Pharmaceuticals.

“Given the benefits of Super Bioavailable (SB) Technology like half the drug, no inter-patient variability, freedom to prescribe with/without food, any beverage, even with Antacids, and that too with a reduction in overall treatment cost certainly seems to be a win-win proposition.”, said Dr R D Kharkar, Senior Consultant Dermatologist, Mumbai.

Anuation to Help Student Inventors in Securing Patents, Copyrights Etc. For Free

New Delhi, (India), October 16: Despite being the country with the highest number of students in the world, student innovation in India remains erratic. The number of patents, trademarks, copyrights, etc., filed by students remains minimal. Major factors for this homuncular figure include lack of awareness, misinformation, insufficient funds, expert unavailability, etc. In an effort to support and protect the ideas of India’s best and brightest young minds, Anuation Research and Consulting LLP, an IP Law firm in the intellectual property space, has decided to offer its services absolutely free of cost to young inventors in technical institutes across the country.

Vishal Bhardwaj, Partner, Anuation Research and Consulting LLP, says, “Seasoned IP experts at Anuation will work closely with students to help them understand the true potential of their innovations and help with various legal formalities involved in filing a strong application in the field of Patents for their technological innovations, Copyright for any unique form of art created by the students or Trademark of any new venture or start-up idea”.

Sumit Bhat, Patent Monetization Expert, Anuation Research and Consulting LLP, says, “Inventors, particularly students, who don’t have strong financial backing neglect the registration of their intellectual property considering the high costs associated in terms of high professional fees of the attorneys and government/ official fees. Irrespective of their financial backdrop, ANUATION wants to help and encourage students for free while registering their Patent, trademark, copyright, etc.”

Conveniently, the Government of India has put in tremendous efforts towards the Aatm Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan by reducing the government fees of filing patent applications and prosecution by up to 80%. Anuation Research and Consulting LLP, in support of the Government of India and Aatm Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan, has therefore decided to further extend their support to young budding inventors to help them realize the importance of their inventions and ideas as the future of a country lies in the hands of young blood. A team of over 50 agents, attorneys, technical team, and supporting staff at Anuation will spot the talent and nurture it for free to achieve the best positive results.

Interview with Luv Sinha, Co-Founder, House of Creativity

Tell us about House of Creativity. How, when, and why did it happen?

House of creativity was an idea that came to me a few years ago when I noticed that my sister has always loved to paint. My brother and I are passionate about photography, so I thought about coming up with a platform to assist talented artists to showcase their talent. There is so much talent in India; however, most of them never seem to find the right platform to showcase their talent, and that is how House of Creativity was born.

What is the core philosophy of House of Creativity?

The core philosophy of House of Creativity is to empower artists by allowing them to showcase their talent to the world. There are so many artists who are phenomenal at their work, but they don’t know how to reach out to a larger audience. Today with so much of social media and digital clutter, it has because easy as well as challenging, and hence we want to empower and help these artists reach out to a larger number of people.

How does the House of Creativity choose the artists and their works to be on display on the website?

We have an in-house team that curates the artists as they are primarily from the art world. We also have a method via which talented artists can submit their work, and I must admit that we have received a lot of entries. We cannot have everyone put up their work as there is a selection process that includes Sonakshi, Khush and myself. Having said that, just because we are not able to have everyone’s work on our website does not mean that they are any less talented. It just means that we are not able to connect with their work as per our personal assessment.

Can you talk about the recent association with the BMC, the Mahim Wall Painting initiative, with how you partnered with Painter Shabbu?

The Mahim beach wall art is receiving a lot of appreciation, and we were very happy about it. This was something that Mr. Kiran Dighavkar, Assistant Municipal Commissioner with the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) of that area, got in touch with me, and we decided that we would like to do something around the beach area and make it stand out. We discussed a few ideas, and basis the brief, I found Shabbu Painter from a reference, and I contacted him. He came to Mumbai, and we brainstormed. Mr. Dighavkar himself had a few valuable inputs that he suggested we incorporate into the artwork. The message that we tried to convey was that the wall art is a reflection of Mumbai. Think of it as reflecting Mumbai or the Bandra Promenade that is reflected on this wall, along with showcasing the Mahim beach area. I am glad that it worked out well in terms of the final artwork.

What prompted the three of you to start a business venture together, and that too in the middle of a pandemic? What was the thought process?

We did not plan to start in the middle of a pandemic. In fact, our work had begun well before. When the pandemic hit, we could not put our work aside as we had to work to the best of our abilities and co-ordinate with our team members as it is an e-commerce website focused on art, we could continue to do our work without having to stop the process as it was digital work, which is why we did not have an issue, and the thought process of working together was that all three of us are creative in a different way and it was something that I wanted to do with my family. Also, all of us bring different strengths to the table. For example, Sonakshi, Kussh, and I have our own abilities or skillsets that I wanted to combine.

How do you see the future of House of Creativity in the Post- Pandemic World?

What I am hoping for is that we host exhibitions at places like an art gallery, exclusive events showing artwork to interest consumers so that they can see it Infront of their eyes. Because the experience that you get when seeing something Infront of your screen is very different when you see it in person. I also feel that there is an emotional connection when you see the artwork in person as opposed to a digital platform. That is what we are hoping for, along with sales and, most notably, helping our existing and upcoming artists.

I am very optimistic, and while there are challenges, we will figure out a way to work around those challenges.
