  2. The ministry will allow these states to have split campuses – hospital and medical college within 10km of each other.
  3. India has a density of one medical college per 38.41 lakhs.
  4. Around 315 medical colleges are spread across 188 of 642 districts.
  5. There is only one medical college for 115 lakhs in Bihar, UP (95 lakhs), Madhya Pradesh (73 lakhs) and Rajasthan (68 lakhs), whereas Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu each have medical college for 15 lakhs, 16 lakhs and 19 lakhs, respectively.
  6. India has the largest number of medical colleges in the world.
  7. India produces over 30,000 doctors and 18,000 specialists every year.
  8. India’s average annual output is 100 graduates per medical college in comparison to 110 in North America, Central Europe (125), Western Europe (149) and Eastern Europe (220). China, which has 188 colleges, churns out 1,75,000 doctors annually with an average of 930 graduates per college.

2–Stage plan for managing gout may keep joints clean

Maintaining serum urate levels at less than 6 mg/dL is necessary for clearing tophi and dissolving monosodium urate monohydrate crystals in gout, but once it has been achieved, keeping serum urate just below the threshold for saturation (6.0 – 6.9 mg/dL) is likely to be enough to prevent gout recurrence, according to data reported in the December issue of Arthritis & Rheumatism.

Second XMRV–CFS Paper Pulled

The only publication to corroborate the now–retracted 2009 paper linking the mouse retrovirus XMRV to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) has also been retracted. Shyh–Ching Lo, MD, of the FDA, and colleagues published a statement Monday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences disavowing the conclusions of their report originally appearing in the journal in August 2010.They said they remained confident in the integrity of their original work. But, citing numerous other studies that failed to replicate the findings, they said its actual validity had become questionable. "It is our current view that the association of murine gamma retroviruses with CFS has not withstood the test of time or of independent verification and that this association is now tenuous. Therefore, we retract the conclusions in our article," they wrote. (Source: Medpage Today)

    An Inspirational Story

(Dr Anupam Sethi Malhotra)

The Story of the One Eyed Mother

My mom only had one eye. I hated her… she was such an embarrassment… She cooked for students and teachers…to support the family. There was this one day during elementary school and my mom came. I was so embarrassed. How could she do this to me? I threw her a hateful look and ran out. The next day at school… "Your mom only has one eye?!?!"…eeeee said a friend. I wished my mom would just disappear from this world. So I said to my mom, "Mom… Why don’t you have the other eye?! If you’re only going to make me a laughing stock, why don’t you just die?!!!"

My mom did not respond… I guess I felt a little bad, but at the same time, it felt good to think that I had said what I'd wanted to say all this time… Maybe it was because my mom hadn’t punished me, but I didn’t think that I had hurt her feelings very badly.

That night… I woke up, and went to the kitchen to get a glass of water. My mom was crying there, so quietly, as if she was afraid that she might wake me. I took a look at her, and then turned away. Because of the thing I had said to her earlier, there was something pinching at me in the corner of my heart. Even so, I hated my mother who was crying out of her one eye. So I told myself that I would grow up and become successful.

Then I studied real hard. I left my mother and went to Singapore to study. Then, I got married. I bought a house of my own. Then I had kids, too… Now I’m living happily as a successful man. I like it here because it’s a place that doesn’t remind me of my mom.

This happiness was getting bigger and bigger, when… What?! Who’s this?! It was my mother…Still with her one eye. I felt as if the whole sky was falling apart on me. Even my children ran away, scared of my mom’s eye. And I asked her, "Who are you?!" "I don’t know you!!!" as if trying to make that real. I screamed at her, "How dare you come to my house and scare my children! GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!"

And to this, my mother quietly answered, "Oh, I’m so sorry. I may have gotten the wrong address," and she disappeared out of sight. Thank goodness… She doesn’t recognize me. I was quite relieved. I told myself that I wasn’t going to care, or think about this for the rest of my life. Then a wave of relief came upon me…

One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house in Singapore. So, lying to my wife that I was going on a business trip, I went. After the reunion, I went down to the old shack that I used to call a house… Just out of curiosity

There, I found my mother fallen on the cold ground. But I did not shed a single tear. She had a piece of paper in her hand…It was a letter to me. "My son… I think my life has been long enough now… And… I won’t visit Singapore anymore… But would it be too much to ask if I wanted you to come visit me once in a while? I miss you so much… And I was so glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion. But I decided not to go to the school. For you… And I'm sorry that I only have one eye, and I was an embarrassment for you.

You see, when you were very little, you got into an accident, and lost your eye. As a mom, I couldn’t stand watching you having to grow up with only one eye… So I gave you mine… I was so proud of my son that was seeing a whole new world for me, in my place, with that eye. I was never upset at you for anything you did… The couple times that you were angry with me… I thought to myself, ‘It’s because he loves me…’ My son… Oh, my son… "I was crying out loud…, if I could turn the time back…

Pause a moment and consider your life! Be thankful of what you have today compared to many millions who do not live lives as you do!

Do spend some time in prayer for your mum out there!

Resistance training helps older adults maintain lean body mass: An update

Sarcopenia is the medical term for the loss of muscle mass and strength that typically occurs in aging adults. This loss of lean body mass often leads to lower functionality and lower quality of life. New research published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, however, reiterates the importance of resistance training to prevent the loss of lean muscle mass. Researchers included data from 49 studies, evaluating a total of 1,328 patients over the age of 50, in this meta–analysis. After performing various statistical tests to ensure that results from different studies were compatible, they found that higher volume interventions (resistance training regimens that increased the volume of weight lifted progressively over time) were significantly more effective. Additionally, they found that programs were more effective is started earlier in life, presumably to prevent sarcopenia before it begins.

    Legal Question of the Day

(Dr MC Gupta, Advocate & Medico–legal Consultant)

Q. I am a Lab Head in Noida. I know of pathologists who are working in 16–18 labs at the same time as part time as a pathologist, which is humanly impossible, especially when the labs are located as far as in Noida, Ghaziabad and West Delhi. In reality, they have given their signatory authority to such labs and are getting monthly salary in return without thinking about the adverse consequences of their act for the health of the people. There must be some regulations against this kind of malpractice. It is really sad how pathology, which is an important branch of medicine, has lost its dignity.


  1. I appreciate your concern. There are enough laws, regulations and court judgments against such malpractice.
  2. Such malpractice continues in spite of regulations etc. because both the medical profession and the public are comfortable with it.
  3. If the medical profession is uncomfortable with such malpractice, nothing prevents a doctor or an association of doctors from complaining against the wrong doers to the medical council and get them punished.
  4. If the public is uncomfortable with such malpractice, nothing prevents a patient doctor or a consumer organisation from filing a complaint against the wrong doers with the medical council or the police or the consumer courts or all three of them.
  5. If pathologists are concerned that this important branch has lost its dignity, action to restore the dignity has to be taken by them and not others. Nothing prevents them from complaining to the Association of pathologists and the IMA and get the membership of such wrong doers cancelled. They can also complain to the Directorate of Health and to the Appropriate Authority under the central or state Clinical Establishment Act, as applicable, and get the establishment/laboratory of the wrong doers closed. Nothing prevents the pathologists’ association from filing a writ petition in the HC with a prayer that the government and the police may be asked to seal such establishments which are running the business of path labs without having real pathologists in position for doing the specialist work.
  6. The easiest thing is to blame the government and to lament one’s fate and send e mails. None of these three is likely to be of much help.

  • T4, TSH
  • Serum cortisol
  • α1 AT levels and phenotype
  • Galactose 1 phosphate uridyl transferase (to rule out galactosemia)

    Infertility Update

(Dr Kaberi Banerjee, IVF expert, New Delhi)

The menstrual cycle is divided into how many phases?

The menstrual cycle is divided into the following three phases.

  • The Follicular Phase: The follicular phase lasts about 10 to 14 days, beginning with the first day of menstruation and lasting until the LH surge. During the follicular phase, the hypothalamus, which is an area of your brain, releases gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH). This hormone tells the pituitary gland, located at the base of your brain, to release follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). FSH stimulates, or triggers, the development of several follicles in your ovaries. These follicles contain immature eggs. One off these follicles will become the dominant follicle and its egg will begin to mature. The dominant follicle increases in size and secretes, or sends out, estrogen into the bloodstream. The rising levels of estrogen cause the hypothalamus and pituitary to slow down the production of FSH.
  • The Ovulatory Phase: The ovulatory phase begins with the LH surge and ends with ovulation, which is the release of the egg from the dominant follicle. As ovulation approaches, estrogen levels rise and trigger the pituitary gland to release a large surge of luteinizing hormone (LH). About 16 to 32 hours after this LH surge, the dominant follicle releases (ovulates) its egg.
  • The Luteal Phase: The luteal phase begins after ovulation and generally lasts about 14 days. After the egg is ovulated, the empty follicle that contained the egg closes and becomes known as the corpus luteum. The corpus luteum secretes large amounts of progesterone, a hormone that helps prepare the endometrium for embryo implantation (pregnancy). If the egg is fertilized by a sperm, the resulting embryo reaches the uterus several days later and begins to implant in the endometrium. If an embryo does not implant, progesterone levels decline. The endometrium then breaks down, which results in menstruation, and the cycle begins again.

Estimation of blood alcohol

  • About 3–4 ml of blood is drawn as sample.
  • Chemically clean evacuated tubes of 5ml should be used to collect samples.
  • Tubes should be water proof/not be vulnerable to freezing; they should have labels with identification codes.
  • EDTA should be used as anticoagulant. Tubes with liquid EDTA/fluoride reduce the risk of hemolysis leads to altered results
  • 2ml of 5% aqueous solution of sodium citrate containing 0.2% w/v of formaldehyde or 0.5% w/v of formalin solution must be added to prevent decomposition which leads to altered results
  • Plastic vacuum tubes/Plastic vacuum gel tubes are preferred to glass tubes. If vacuum tubes are not available or tubes are opened for freely flowing samples, stoppers which do not react with blood constituents should be available.
  • Special boxes for tube transfer and storage, earmarked refrigerator/ freezer must be available in hospital conducting medicolegal cases.
  • About 3–4 ml of blood is taken in a sterile 5ml injection vial (properly sealed and labeled) containing about 2ml of 5% aqueous solution of sodium citrate containing 0.2% w/v of formaldehyde (or 0.5% w/v of formalin solution).
  • Two approximately 1cm × 1cm size blood stains are formed on clean cotton cloth/gauze pieces and, after they are dry, they are transferred to a sterile 10ml injection vial it should be properly dried, before packing to avoid decomposition and then sealed and labeled.
  • Blood stains located on the body of an uninjured person are taken by rubbing with moistened clean cotton cloth pieces, it should be properly dried, before packing to avoid decomposition and then sealed and labeled.

Lecture on New Frontiers in Astronomy held

UNESCO Kalinga Awardee 2009 and Kalinga Chair awardee for popularization of science in the world, Prof. Trinh X Thuan, Professor of Astronomy, University of Virginia, USA, UNESCO delivered a lecture at National Science Centre Pragati Maidain in New Delhi today.

This lecture series was organized by Heart care Foundation of India on behalf of National Council for Science & Technology Communication Dept.of Science & Technology. An exhibition on Chemistry for Human Welfare developed by National Council of Science Museums was also inaugurated by Prof.Thuan.

Speaking on the occasion, Padma Shri & Dr. B.C. Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India said that astronomy is a fascinating subject. The more we know, the more we want to know.

In his lecture, Prof.Trinh X. Thuan, spoke about many universes and galaxies like this universe that has been discovered by the modern day astro scientists through the use of radio waves and hebbal telescopes.

He further said these galaxies and universes like our solar system are billions of light years away. Prof.Thuan himself an expert on research in dwarf galaxies showed in his power point backed presentation, the type and shape of many dwarf galaxies that he has founded.

He further said that prior to seventeenth century, it was believed that earth is the centre point and other starts included sun revolves around it and there is only one solar system, but this theory was later modified to present concept that sun is stationery and all other planets in this solar system including earth revolves around it.

This fact has further been modified by modern day astroscientis (with the advent of state of art technologies) that our solar system is only amongst the billions of such solar systems present in this universe, that are billions of light years away.

While welcoming the chief guest Prof. Thuan, Mr G S Rautela Director General National Council of Science Museums Ministry of Culture Govt. of India, said that National Science Centre is the only institution in the country which is having interactive scientific modules on all types of scientific inventions that have taken place in the world with the advent of modern day science.

Dr Aggarwal, said that research has proved that yesterdays miracles are today’s science and similarly today’s miracles will be science tomorrow. While relating human body elements to the number of particles on universe, he said that what we assume as myth in our religious literature, have lots of scientific backing but for want of proper documentation, it has been popularized as religious theory, may be to bind the people together which must have been the call of the day when these were scripted. He called upon the scientists to help the mankind by understanding the revealing the scientific background of these so called religious myths.

Ms Shashi Ahuja Director NCSTC Dept. of Science & Technology said that the ministry has been working hard to infuse new blood and research in pursing pure science subjects and this is one of the methods that the ministry has evolved to honour/recognize those who work continuously for the welfare of mankind popularization of science. She called upon the youth and student community to follow the path of scientists who have been working hard to learn and solve scientific theories that are useful for the mankind as a whole.

Others who graced the function included Mr D Rama Sarma Director National Science Centre, Delhi. The lecture was attended by about 500 people from all walks of life including school students.
