Whatever is happening, is happening for good. Whatever that will happen, it will be for good. What have you lost for which you cry? What did you bring with you, which you have lost? What did you produce, which has destroyed? You did not bring anything when you were born. Whatever you have, you have received from Him. Whatever you will give, you will give to Him. You came empty handed and you will go the same way. Whatever is yours today was somebody else’s yesterday and will be somebody else’s tomorrow. Change is the law of the universe.--|

Superbug should not have been named New Delhi: Lancet Editor


New Delhi, Jan 11 (PTI) The editor of leading medical journal Lancet today apologised for the naming of an antibiotic resistant superbug after the Indian capital, saying it was an error.
A report in the magazine last year about the superbug New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamese-I originating in India had created an uproar in the country.
"The science behind the report was very strong, sound and correct. But it should not have been named after a city," Dr Richard Horton told reporters here.
"It was an error and I apologise for it. I think it should be renamed, but it should be up to the microbiologists (who discovered the superbug)," he said.
After the article was published last August, with the Health Ministry came out with a hard-hitting statement against it, saying the contents of the article present a "frightening picture which is not supported by any scientific data".
Its lead author Karthikeyan Kumarasawamy also dismissed as hypothetical the conclusion that the bacteria was transmitted from the country and said some interpretations were made without his knowledge.
He also said some interpretations in the report were written without his knowledge.
Karthikeyan, research student at AL Mudaliar postgraduate Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, co-authored the research article with Timothy Walsh, published in Lancet.
The Department of Health in the UK had put out an alert on the issue, raising the hackles of the Indian medical fraternity.
