vitamin C can kill the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis
An unexpected discovery by an American research team reports that vitamin C can kill the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis that causes multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis MDR-TB. The new discovery is expected to lead to new treatments, cheaper drugs and bring relief to millions of people suffering from multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) across the globe. The research was undertaken at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University. The report published recently has found that, "Vitamin C, a compound known to drive the fenton reaction, sterilizes cultures of drug-susceptible and drug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of tuberculosis." Researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, found that the vitamin C effectively kills drug-resistant TB bacteria under laboratory conditions.

Government free to amend the schedule to allow Homoeopaths to practise Allopathy-says Court

homeopathy allopathyThe Bombay high court on Friday stayed its earlier order permitting homoeopathic doctors having degree of LCEH (licentiate of the court of examiners in homeopathy) to practise allopathy. Reviewing their April 15, 2013, judgment, a division bench of Justice S J Vazifdar and Justice Mridula Bhatkar stayed the order to the government to amend the schedule of the Maharashtra Medical Council Act to allow LCEH doctors to practice allopathy. 
The Maharashtra Medical Council and Indian Medical Association had filed the review petition, stating that under the provisions of the MMC Act 1965, homoeopaths having this degree cannot practise as allopathic doctors. Senior counsel S U Kamdar, along with advocate Chirag Kamdar, said homoeopaths cannot be permitted to practise modern medicine unless they are registered with the MMC and the government could not amend the schedule of the MMC Act without prior consultation of the MMC.

Homoeopathy pharmacies do not have trained pharmacy staff

Ninety per cent of homoeopathy pharmacies across the state (Kerela-India) do not have trained pharmacy staff - the reason, as pointed out by Homeopathy Department Officials, is the absence of a formal training course. The situation forces hospital authorities to run pharmacies with unqualified staff, which is a matter of worry as chances are very high that the patients may get wrong medicines. 
The proposal to start formal homeopathy pharmacy courses in its colleges did not see the light of day. “Once, after buying medicines from the pharmacy, I came back t o see the doctor to ask about the pattern of consumption. But, when the doc saw the medicine, he came with me to the pharmacy and got me some other medicines. Later, I realised that the medicines given by the pharmacy staff were not the correct ones,” said Santhi Krishna, a patient. When contacted the Principal and Controller of Homeopathy Colleges, Nisha Paul, admitted that there was a shortage of pharmacy staff in all homeopathy hospitals in Kerala. “There was a course named NCP (nurse cum pharmacist), but it has been discontinued in its third year in 2009. It could only release 120 trained pharmacists in three years against a demand of at least 1,000.
