CMC doc wins Gates research grant

A doctor attached to Christian Medical College (CMC) hospital in Vellore has been awarded grant worth Rs 44.38 lakh by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to carry out a research on eradication of Polio.

He is the only doctor from India to win the award.

Associate Professor of Community Medicine of CMC Hospital Dr Jacob John has been selected from over 2,500 proposals from around 100 countries, while two other doctors from abroad have also bagged the grant to carry out innovative research to improve the immunity of vaccine against Polio and maternal health.

Expressing happiness for being selected for the award to carry out the research,
Dr Jacob John said, I am honoured to have received this prestigious grant. Polio is a highly contagious and often deadly infection. If I can contribute in any way to preventing this, I will be very satisfied.

My research will be focusing on new strategy to eradicate polio and what needs to done for that. The new strategy is such as giving injectable polio vaccine to children, who already received oral polio vaccine, Dr John told this newspaper. He is also the principle investigator of this research.

Dr Nicholas Grassly of Imperial College in London, who is another recipient of this award, would partner him in the research. However, he would work on other organism which would be effective in eradicating polio. The entire research would be carried out in CMC Hospital here.

Dr. Gagandeep Kang, Dr Jayaprakash Muliyil and Dr Asha Abrahim of CMC Hospital would be roped into the research.

We will start the research after getting permission from the ethics committee of CMC hospital. It will take a year-and-an half to complete the research, said Dr John.

CMC pulled up for illegal adoption

A four-member committee, which was constituted by the district court to conduct an inquiry into a case of illegal child adoption, has found that the famous Christian Medical College (CMC) hospital had sent two abandoned babies to Sishu Bhavan, a childrens home in Vellore, without informing the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) as per norms.

The Bhavan in turn had given away one of those babies for adoption last year in clear violation of rules.

The violation came to light when the foster parents approached a court to legalise the adoption of the abandoned baby. When the court wanted to know from where the couple had procured the baby, they pointed to the Sishu Bhavan, which in turn revealed that the orphan child was given by the CMC.
Upon this, the court asked the Child Welfare Committee to investigate.

We were shocked to find in our preliminary enquiry that CMC had handed over two abandoned babies to Sishu Bhavan, which is not authorised to give kids in adoption, a CWC member said requesting anonymity.

The Child Welfare Committee is the authority to clear adoptions but we have been kept in the dark until the court directive to check on this foster parents case, the CWC member added.

The CWC has asked CMC to produce the list of babies found abandoned in the hospital during the past three years and their present whereabouts.

If the Christian Medical College fails to produce this list, CWC plans to institute legal proceedings against the hospital, the CWC official said.

Based on the CWCs preliminary report, the district social welfare officer Ms Gomathi summoned the CMC legal officer and the representative of Sishu Bhavan for questioning on Friday.

CMC authorities were unavailable for comment.

CMC docs happy about Binayak bail

The medical fraternity and alumni of Christian Medical College (CMC) Hospital in Vellore expressed happiness over the Supreme Court direction to release rights activist, Dr Binayak Sen, one of the alumni of the prestigious institution, on bail on Friday.

Dr Sen, convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment by a Chhattisgarh court on charges of sedition and aiding Naxalites, belongs to the 1967 Christian Medical Colleg batch.

He pursued MD in pediatrics and finished the postgraduate course in 1976 in the same institution.
Dr Sen is known for his passion for the profession and love for the poor.

On hearing the news of the Supreme Courts direction, hospital medical superintendent and one of his juniors who knew Dr Sen personally, Dr Lionel Gnanaraj told Deccan Chronicle, I think justice has been done. He is a peace-loving person and never preached violence.

Dr Sen has done a lot for the health of the poor and always stood for the cause of the downtrodden and the needy, he added.

Christian Medical College hospital director, Dr Suranjan Bhattacharjee, said, We are vey happy to know that Dr Binayak Sen has been released on bail.

Dr Sen started a clinic at Bhilai in Durg district in Chhattisgarh to treat pregnant women and the needy in the rural area after he witnessed a pregnant woman being denied medical care in a hospital which only treated employees of Bhilai steel industries, 20 years ago.

Dr Sen then opened a clinic at Bilaspur with the help of four other doctors.

Master health check-up for cops in Vellore

The sudden death of a 52 year-old special sub-inspector of police (SSI) during a prohibition raid a month ago has given a wake-up call to the district police department to keep its personnel in good health condition.

The department has launched a master-health check up programme for its personnel in association with the Christian Medical College and Hospital, Vellore.

The health programme for police personnel was launched with an aim of
creating and maintaining a healthy police force, Superintendent of Police (SP) of Vellore A. Kayalvizhi told this new paper.

The death of Sambange, SSI attached to Prohibition Enforcement Wing (PEW), Vaniyambadi, during a raid on November 18 due to cardiac arrest raised a thought of organising a systematic medical check-up for the men in khaki. The family members of the SSI told me that he was fine and had no sign of any health problem. But he collapsed and died of
cardiac arrest while on duty.

We dont want this to happen to other police persons in the district, said the SP.
The police personnel have heavy workload, regular night beats and
follow up duties. They lack proper rest and have no time to think
about their health condition, she said.

So, we designed the programme
in a way to cover each and every police person. It was materialized
after getting the permission of IG C. Sylendra Babu, who inaugurated
the programme on December 17. All the 2,984 police personnel from
officer rank to constable in the district would be screened under this
programme at free of cost, said the SP.

So far, around 200 personnel were examined for blood pressure, sugar,
diabetes and ECG and other health check-ups were done to find out
their health status at free of cost till date.

The hospital
administration has also accepted to treat the policemen, if they are
diagnosed with any ailment free of cost. We are sending all the police
personnel in the district in small batches on daily basis for master
health check-up, she further said.-eom-shan-

TN directed to bear medical expenses

The Madurai bench of Madras high court on Wednesday directed the state government to deposit `2 lakh with Christian Medical College Hospital, Vellore, towards initial medical expenses of a woman who slipped into coma after the doctors at the Nagercoil government hospital negligently administered nitrous oxide instead of oxygen when she was admitted for tubectomy.

In his interim direction, Justice K.K. Sasidharan ordered the state health secretary to deposit the amount with the hospital administration and the Madurai collector to take necessary action to carefully shift the victim to CMC, Vellore, from Government Rajaji Hospital.

He also ordered the government to bear the entire medical expenses of the coma patient Rukmani until her recovery and the CMC administration to arrange accommodation for her kin who attend on her.

G. Rukmani (34) slipped into coma after she was given nitrous oxide at Nagercoil government medical college hospital at the time of conducting family planning surgery on March 19. She was referred to Government Rajaji Hospital on April 12.

After her husband S.Ganesan moved the high court through his counsel R.Alagumani seeking adequate compensation and action against the errant doctors, the bench in July directed the government to grant an interim relief of `50,000 to the victim when she was undergoing treatment at GRH.

Considering the plight of the petitioner who had been attending on the victim staying in the hospital corridors, justice R.Sudhakar who heard the case then ordered the Madurai collector to forthwith arrange accommodation for him.

He also directed the GRH authorities to ensure that Rukmani who is in the intensive care unit was given utmost care and best treatment.

Later, the medical report of the patient, who was examined by an experts team from Government General Hospital, Chennai, was submitted to the court. Based on its recommendations, the court ordered the same line of treatment for Rukmani at GRH.

Petitioners counsel R.Alagumani said the main prayer seeking action against the authorities responsible for the present condition of Rukmani who has a 13-year-old daughter and a 15-year-old son would be taken up after the submission of a report by the state about the progress of the treatment provided to her at CMC.
