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.
