Biotechnology in Health- A goldmine

Biotechnology has been associated with improved overall health and lifestyle of human beings for some time. In fact a lot of research in biotechnology is focused in the field of genetics, DNA fingerprinting, DNA recombitant (rDNA) analysis and other related areas are addressed to unlock the mysteries of life and to improve disease quality of life and improve the standard of living. Needless to say, this exciting and unexplored (unexplored in the sense that a vast ocean is still there to win as much as the conditions and human diseases are concerned) offers tremendous opportunities for manufacturers of drugs and academic institutions to undertake or sponsor projects research and pilot projects to give shape to ideas and concepts.

India has remained relatively intact for a considerable period of time due to various regulatory and other reasons. The first and the first was the process patent regime that existed until December 31, 2004. This enables companies to achieve what is commonly called "reverse engineering" that by developing the same product, but with different processes. Thus the Indian pharmaceutical company profitable in the short term, as the Indian market were concerned. However, even this has made them ill late on the international scene to the extent that new research in the field was concerned. However, the amendment of the Patent Act and the entry into force of the same thing with effect from 1 January 2005, has made Indian companies to rethink their strategy and contribute to the field by a change in the policy framework.

Several path breaking success in international research in the field of biotechnology for health has completely changed the market. Sequencing the human genome has led to a better understanding of how to detect and treat various diseases. Health Biotechnology has had a direct impact on the daily lives of people around the world. treatments for cancer vaccines, antibiotics, genetic testing, and diagnostics and innovative therapies for diseases such as cystic fibrosis and diabetes are some innovations in biotechnology in improving health and health life styles of people in developed countries and countries in the developing world.

Biotechnology plays an important role as a preventive health system. patients screened for susceptibility to the disease and the provision of vaccines against the onset of the disease has a positive impact on millions of people. Improved diagnostic tools to help doctors and researchers to identify the disease and targeted treatments for patients planning. The side effects can be minimized by understanding how a person's genetic makeup affects their ability to metabolize drugs.

In the future, biotechnology can improve health through the use and understanding of the genetic code to fight against the disease, and provides physicians with the tools to not only treat illness but to prevent and treat diseases with a personalized approach. Stem cells are cells of the type of construction for all, tissues and organs in human body cells. Preservation of his own stem cells could one day help restore the body parts that become damaged due to disease or injury.
