What is it about?

It is a innovative technique of putting antibiotics alongwith Vitamin D3 granules directly on the infected wound site to avoid taking antibiotics by mouth or injections, thus avoiding side effects of the antibiotics. It is extremely simple method, low cost, very effective, and can be done in remote places where the medical help is not available.

Why is it important?

Vitamin D3 granules have been used as a carrier of the antibiotics for the first time in the history of clinical medicine by Dr Chander Shekhar. Vitamin D3 has a vital role in maintaining the proper functioning and growth of various tissues in the body. It also produces a peptide which has the capability to kill bacteria, viruses and fungi.

Perspectives

Chronic open wounds are itself a challenge to treat when they are infected with resistant organisms over a long period of time where the broad spectrum antibiotics already used failed to control and eradicate the infection, thus not allowing the wound to heal. The cost of treating these patients is extremely high, the no of such patients are steadily increasing in population and the spread of resistant organisms or bacteria leads to life threatening situations which are impossible to treat and the mortality is also increasing.
