A botanical pill with the name of ‘Caripill’ was launched by Micro Labs Ltd, which increases the platelet count in dengue fever patients. Scientific and regulatory authorities have approved the drug which is made from the extract of carica papaya leaf. The clinical trials showed no side-effects of the Caripill tablets.

Positive results were shown by the drug with an effective decrease in haemorrhage condition, claimed the lab. In addition, patients did not require the blood transfusion process which is almost mandatory for dengue patients as they require platelets from donor’s blood.

Caripill is considered, with scientific support, to increase the platelet count in dengue fever patients. Since the drug is considered to be effective in treating dengue fever, lab is sure that it can also be helpful in treating diseases like leukaemia where chemotherapy is required which leads to loss of platelets.

Caripill is now available at all major pharmacies across India costing Rs 25 per tablet with a dosage of one tab (1100 mg) three times a day, for five days.

Delhi has witnessed a sudden increase in dengue cases this year as compared to past five years which has claimed 11 lives so far. World Health Organisation stated that dengue fever, globally, is becoming a serious health problem.

    I am NOT HAPPY.There is no relief.There is NO increament of
    platelets after using the medicine.Before the treatment ,my Platelets count was
    1 Lakh.Then after looking at the press release of Micro labs,I started using
    Caripill for 7 and half days ,2 caps per day and one on the eighth day on
    Doctor’s advice.After the treatment is over,I got tested my blood sample and it
    is only 1 Lakh.To verify the doubt,I got tested the blood sample and it is
    again 1L Lakh only.So now,shoild I ask the Druggists to ‘revisit’ their claim?
    or they will again thoroughly ‘test’ the medicine and come to the market??

      What if it stabilised your platelet count for those 7 and half days. In other words, it might have compensated further loss.

      • Drake

        we all are talking about cures and symptoms, but is there anyone doing anything about the precautions?. People are ending up dead…there ain’t no point talking to the labs manufacturing em, cuz to be frank its their business..somewhere or the other we do have to reply on Ayurveda for the cure, and if we Indians cant do it than how can we reply on foreign countries??

        • Abhijit Parial

          It’s not a cure if it targets only platelet count. Does this remove the virus?? Papaya leaf juice +a lot of watrr helps. If you have not seen a doctor, go see one asap. You also need to address your diet if the intermittent fever has gone and your platelets have not receeded…

    • Hebziba Christopher

      I have no connection with Micro Lab Ltd. But would like to know more about the dengue remedy.

    • Vikas Kumar

      SIr , actually a point here , best i know in case of dengue (as couple of my friends are found positive in dengue ) once the platelets count reached below 1.5 Lakh . It continues to decrease untill some external remedy or death . How come in your case , it didn’t dipped below 1 Lakh and that surprisingly for 7 and half days ?
      In dengue it’s not possible without extra remedy !!
      either the capsules worked or you might took any other extra remedies . In any case please let me know how you maintained that 1 lakh for 7 and half days ? as in dengue that 1 lakh count reaches to below 35 thousand in just 12-14 hours untill/unless you take doctor assistance .

      • Sourav Singh

        Drug name caripill tab you should take thrice in day for five days, after taking the medicine it will rise the platlate count within 48 Hour. Keep try, freely available in main counter cost were RS 375 only by MICRO LABS it is tasted in dengu indused thrombocytopenia.

  • vipin

    Best Homeopathic Remedy is EUPATORIUM PERF 200.

  • Enakshi Roy Chowdhury

    well anyone who is well informed would know that the platelet count can be increased with the juice of papaya leaf.. but then if just a tablet is doing the work,, its good

Dengue Vaccine Should Not Be Used Widely: UN Health Agency

UN Health Agency issued an important statement regarding the dengue vaccine

Dengue vaccine.
A Manila Health officer shows off a pair of vials of the anti-dengue vaccine Dengvaxia after being recalled from local government health centers Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017 in Manila, Philippines. The World Health Organization says the first-ever vaccine for dengue needs to be dealt with in "a much safer way," meaning that the shot should mostly be given to people who have previously been infected with the disease.

The World Health Organization says the first-ever vaccine for dengue needs to be dealt with in “a much safer way,” meaning that the shot should mostly be given to people who have previously been infected with the disease.

In November, the vaccine’s manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur, said people who had never been sickened by dengue before were at risk of developing a more serious disease after getting the shot.

After a two-day meeting this week, WHO’s independent vaccines group said it now had proof the vaccine should only be used “exclusively or almost exclusively in people who have already been infected with dengue.”

The U.N. health agency said a test should be developed so doctors would be able to quickly tell if people had previously been sickened by dengue – but the group acknowledged doing that so isn’t straightforward.

“We see significant obstacles in using the vaccine this way, but we are confident this also spurs the development of a rapid diagnostic test,” said Dr. Joachim Hombach, executive secretary of WHO’s expert group, during a news conference Thursday.

Sanofi said last year that doctors should consider whether people might have been previously infected with dengue before deciding whether they should risk getting immunized. The company said it expected to take a 100 million euro ($118 million) loss based on that news.

People who catch dengue more than once can be at risk of a hemorrhagic version of the disease. The mosquito-spread virus is found in tropical and sub-tropical climates across Latin and South America, Asia, Africa and elsewhere. It causes a flu-like disease that can cause joint pain, nausea, vomiting and a rash. In severe cases, dengue can result in breathing problems, hemorrhaging and organ failure.

About half the world’s population is at risk of dengue; WHO estimates that about 96 million people are sickened by the viral infection every year.

Following Sanofi’s announcement last year, the Philippines halted its dengue immunization program, the world’s first national vaccination program for dengue. The government also demanded a refund of more than 3 billion pesos ($59 million) from Sanofi and is considering further legal action.

In February, the Philippines said the vaccine was potentially linked to the deaths of three people: all of them died of dengue despite having received the vaccine.

The country imposed a symbolic fine of $2,000 on Sanofi and suspended the vaccine’s approval, charging that the drugmaker broke rules on how the shot was registered and marketed.

More than 730,000 children aged 9 and above in the Philippines have received at least one dose of the dengue vaccine, usually delivered in three doses.

There is no specific treatment for dengue and there are no other licensed vaccines on the market.  VOA
