08 January 2011

IMPHAL: The North East Industrial Scientific Technology (NEIST) and Council of Scientific & Industrial Research, (CSIR), substation Lamphelpat, Imphal in a joint venture have achieved a milestone in developing herbal based medicines using the numerous widely found medicinal herbs and plants from Manipur.
The NEIST and CSIR have successfully manufactured two herbal base ointments namely “Anti Arthritis” and “Fungi-Destruct” and are all set to release the product in the local market very soon. The only bottleneck remaining is the manufacturing license, which is yet to be issued by the concerned health department.
Talking to IFP, a scientist in charge of the CSIR and NEIST, Lamphel, H. Birkumar Singh, informed that they had applied for drug manufacturing license to the Health department of Manipur on August 2, 2010 under the Rule 157 of the Drugs and Cosmetic Rules 1945.
Subsequently, the Director of Health Service Manipur sent an inspection team for survey of the undertaking, said H. Birkumar expressing his optimism that the NEIST and CSIR will soon start production of the two ointments.
The venture for manufacturing the two ointments begin last year in the month of February under the supervision of the CSIR and NEIST, with its head quarter based at Jorhat, Assam. They made the breakthrough in the month of July when the clinical lab test was approved by CSIR labs at Jorhat and its different units located through out the country.
