Hospital and Universidad Verde want to move towards personalized medicine

Within the framework of the interdisciplinary project entitled ‘Hospital and Green University, together in search of a healthier environment’, Maria Ines Arganraj, Technical Director of the Pharmacotechnic Laboratory belonging to the Avelaneda Hospital Pharmacy Service, said that “the proposal is a personalized medicine focused on the patient.” move towards”.

The expert, who is also Professor of Pharmaceutical Technology II, Chair of Pharmacy Career at UNT, said: “The purpose of the Pharmacotechnic Laboratory is to broaden the range of pharmaceutical formulations that industry does not produce and others that are available, but that are available in pharmaceutical forms. And/or the dosage must be modified, to adapt to the medical prescription that seeks greater therapeutic effectiveness for the benefit of the patient, these are so-called orphan drugs and off-label uses.

Similarly, the expert stressed that the proposal is to move towards patient-focused personalized medicine. Presently the laboratory is dedicated to the design, development, production and quality control of non-sterile compound and official drugs, preferably in solutions, suspensions and emulsions.

It should be noted that the Pharmacotechnic Laboratory has the potential for continued growth, as it is located in a property that, due to its building infrastructure and space availability, moves towards other levels of preparation of concrete, semi-solids. Provides opportunities to grow. Pharmaceutical makes non-sterile and sterile.

“This laboratory has been operating since last year, with the aim of covering and providing attention to all hospital demands, such as in pediatric medicine and neonatology, where there is usually a great need for mixed drugs. Consideration will be given to these therapeutic needs. Because children and adults do not have access to certain drugs, because they are active ingredients that are accessed through the procurement process in the laboratory, but by import the active pharmaceutical ingredient is obtained from drugs. Established in Germany, Canada, China and India, so we make them”, he clarified.

At the same time, he added: “In this same laboratory, a work process of chemical substances begins, which contributes to all the suggestions and guidelines being implemented today in green hospitals. In other words, work with these chemical substances.” but carrying out a complete production and control process that does not harm the environment, it was proposed to work in an interdisciplinary manner with the issue of waste management”, he remarked.

Currently, the priority is to reduce or monitor the health risks that result from the use of chemical substances, promote their adequate reduction and avoid pollution of air, water and soil to care for the environment.

“Last year the management of the influencer they sent us a proposal from the Global Health Without Harm network and we found it very interesting to address this with professional training as well, in my teaching role we always teach students and future professionals everything related to this Active pharmaceutical ingredients for the preparation of magistrals and the design of formulations for their control, but we never aimed for medicinal petrera inertia and inactivation. This is basically the lack of potential harm that the drug When it is not used, it expires or is in the same manufacturing process.

Finally, Argañaráz explained that this is where the interdisciplinary project originated between the hospital and the university, called “Hospital and Green University together in search of a healthy environment”. We have formed inter-institutional alliances to enhance this purposeful mission. We have already worked with the Faculty of Arts, as the idea is to start with a mural specially made by the Chair of Sculpture, with the aim of raising and generating awareness from this action, to raise awareness and reduce the production of waste. Other activities are planned to prevent this. , its healing and final disposition”, he concluded.
