Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Dec 22 (BusinessWire India): Apollo Hospitals Navi Mumbai, a multi-specialty tertiary care hospital accredited with JCI and NABH quality accreditation, recently launched an advanced 3-bed HEPA filtered Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) unit.
The new unit, a standalone dedicated facility for bone marrow transplantation, will bring international standards of cancer care to offer patients from Navi Mumbai and surrounding areas an accessible facility for bone marrow transplant.
The state-of-the-art advanced BMT unit will provide quality cancer care and treatment and will be supported by an experienced and qualified team of haemato-oncologists, BMT Physician and trained nursing staff.
The BMT unit will cater to patients with blood cancer including leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma as well as other hematological disorders like thalassemia, aplastic anemia, sickle cell disease and inherited immune deficiency disorders.
Bone Marrow Transplant is a life-saving procedure and is the only way to cure many of the patients diagnosed with a blood cancer. BMT involves taking a patient’s damaged or destroyed bone marrow stem cells and replacing them with healthy stem cells from a donor. BMT can be autologous or allogenic. Autologous transplants use the patient’s own blood cells, while allogenic transplants use cells from a matched donor.
The BMT unit was inaugurated by Dr. Abhijat Sheth, President National Board of Examinations, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, and Dr. Navin Khattry, Deputy Director ACTREC, Professor and Head, BMT Unit, Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai.
“There are around many people who are diagnosed with blood cancer or other life-threatening disorders of the blood every year in the country. Bone Marrow Transplantation is the only hope that these patients have for a cure. The new BMT unit will offer world-class facilities to patients with support throughout the treatment from evaluation and preparation to the bone marrow transplant procedure followed by long-term monitoring after the transplant. The BMT unit will have facilities for both autologous and allogenic transplants,” said Dr. Narendra Trivedi, CEO, Apollo Hospitals Navi Mumbai.
The 3 HEPA filtered rooms each have a dedicated air handling unit to ensure strict infection control. A separate laminar flow for sterile chemotherapy preparation is dedicated to the transplant patients. The BMT unit also has a Cryopreservation Unit with -80c deep freezers for long term storage of stem cells. The transplant rooms have been provided with laminar flow and other facilities for infection control.
Dr. Punit Jain, Senior Consultant, Haemato-Oncology and BMT Physician, Apollo Hospitals Navi Mumbai said, “Our team of experienced doctors supported by the advanced infrastructure and technology will offer treatment at par with international standards. Bone Marrow Transplant is a complex procedure and requires teamwork between multiple specialties including transfusion medicine, clinical hematology, pathology, microbiology, immunology, and pharmacology.” (BusinessWire India)

Newsvoir-6.jpg



Dr. Das at CII Delhi 18th Dec

New Delhi (India), Dec 21, (Newsvoir): Speaking at the inaugural session, ‘Harnessing an Entrepreneurial Network’, at the 3rd Higher Education Summit organised by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi, Dr Jitendra K Das, Director, FORE School of Management, stated that Entrepreneurship is a very essential ingredient for the success of any country as entrepreneurship ecosystem has emerged as a strategic approach for sustained economic growth and financial well-being of the nation.
Lauding the government for bringing in changes in the socio-political environment, Dr Jitendra K Das, said, “The successful removal of many bottlenecks which existed in the process of starting up a business, has resulted in an improvement of India’s rank in ‘Ease of Doing Business’ which has jumped from 130 odd to 77 out of 190 countries. Ease of paying tax, ease of getting electricity, construction and documentation, has been made smoother compared to what it used to be. And to a large extent, this has been driven by entrepreneurship ventures.”
Dr. Das referred to the 80 billion dollars foreign remittance received by India, which is the highest in remittance according to the World Bank’s Migration and Development Brief and said that the Government should stop this brain-drain and create plenty of opportunities for them in India rather than being gratified with the foreign remittance and encouraging people to leave. “Unless India has the capacity to absorb them, this highly skilled & smart talent pool would not come back,” he added.
Stating the acquisition of Flipkart by Walmart, and the Indian start-up being taken over by the US MNC, Dr Das said that the Government should come up with a policy which protects voting rights of the Indian business community and start-up eco-system.
Deputy Chief Minister, Government of NCT of Delhi, Manish Sisodia who was the Chief Guest of the event, could not make it and welcomed the gathering through a recorded video message. (Newsvoir)

New Delhi (India), Dec 21, (Newsvoir): A leading private sector health insurance company in India entered into a strategic partnership with Fiinovation, a global Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) consulting firm, and Pinnacle Skills India, an NGO that works towards empowering youth through skill development and education.
The programme’s key objective is to provide skill development opportunities to women from financially disadvantaged communities in 36 districts across 8 states of India. Under this collaboration, Fiinovation and Pinnacle Skills will extend their services to facilitate the corporation’s social welfare project for training the youth to take up the roles of General Duty Assistants (GDA).
The project’s mandate includes community mobilisation through awareness activities, setting-up training centres for skill development, and ensuring employment opportunities. The complete CSR portfolio will be managed and monitored by Fiinovation. Pinnacle Skills India took the responsibility to arrange for ‘On-Job Training’ of the beneficiaries, in hospitals, and multi-speciality clinics.
Upon completion of the training, the beneficiaries will be duly assessed and issued certificates by National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and Sector Skill Council and provided with job placements as GDAs.
Speaking on the launch, Dr. Soumitro Chakraborty, CEO, Fiinovation stressed on the need and importance of women empowerment and their skill development. He stated, “There is a serious decline in women workforce participation due to lack of opportunities, safety and other social stigmas. We want to contribute towards making a social and economic change.”
“Percentage of working women has declined over time. With 36% of women being employed in 2005-06, the number has decreased to 24% in 2015-16. This decline must be a major concern for economy and society at large. Owing to the high gender inequality at the workplace, there is an urgent need that calls for an overhaul. It goes without saying that we need to shift focus towards education, skill development and employment opportunities for women, more aggressively than before. Our society has to adapt and let them take their rightful positions, which they deserve. For the greater good, if more women become part of the paid labour force, it will help raise India’s GDP by an additional 18% by 2025,” Dr. Chakraborty added. (Newsvoir)
