All of our ratings are based on two simple, copyrighted easy to understand ratios. 1) The At-Ray ratio which tries to measure drug safety is defined as Non-Serious Reactions/ Serious Reactions (Serious Reactions are defined by US FDA as indicated in the next paragraph, any reaction not serious is termed non-serious). Simple logic dictates that unsafe or poisonous substances would have a greater chance of causing a serious reaction as defined below and will therefore have a lower At-Ray ratio as defined 2) The PP ratio which tries to measure drug effectivity is the ratio of total complaints/ complaints the drug was ineffective. Again simple logic tells us no matter how many drugs were sold, the drug is probably not very effective if a high percentage is reported as being not effective.
An adverse event is any undesirable experience associated with the use of a medical product in a patient. The event is serious and should be reported to FDA when the patient outcome is:
1) Death :
Report if you suspect that the death was an outcome of the adverse event, and include the date if known.
2) Life-threatening :
Report if suspected that the patient was at substantial risk of dying at the time of the adverse event, or use or continued use of the device or other medical product might have resulted in the death of the patient.
3) Hospitalization (initial or prolonged) :
Report if admission to the hospital or prolongation of hospitalization was a result of the adverse event.
4) Emergency room visits that do not result in admission to the hospital should be evaluated for one of the other serious outcomes (e.g., life-threatening; required intervention to prevent permanent impairment or damage; other serious medically important event).
Disability or Permanent Damage
5) Report if the adverse event resulted in a substantial disruption of a person's ability to conduct normal life functions, i.e., the adverse event resulted in a significant, persistent or permanent change, impairment, damage or disruption in the patient's body function/structure, physical activities and/or quality of life.
Congenital Anomaly/Birth Defect
6) Report if you suspect that exposure to a medical product prior to conception or during pregnancy may have resulted in an adverse outcome in the child.
Required Intervention to Prevent Permanent Impairment or Damage (Devices)
7)Report if you believe that medical or surgical intervention was necessary to preclude permanent impairment of a body function, or prevent permanent damage to a body structure, either situation suspected to be due to the use of a medical product.
Other Serious (Important Medical Events)
8) Report when the event does not fit the other outcomes, but the event may jeopardize the patient and may require medical or surgical intervention (treatment) to prevent one of the other outcomes. Examples include allergic brochospasm (a serious problem with breathing) requiring treatment in an emergency room, serious blood dyscrasias (blood disorders) or seizures/convulsions that do not result in hospitalization. The development of drug dependence or drug abuse would also be examples of important medical events.
Where does the data come from?
Allof the data
comes from public websites like the FDA, National Library of Medicine, Medline etc. Pricing and drug images comes straight from the manufacturer label or from e-commerce websites
Designedto be a
advisory lifeline, a portal with premium content, carefully vetted by
experienced physicians and high quality world class expertise links assiduously
organized for an intuitive, userfriendly and
time-saving search experience.
It respects the intelligence of the user as a
unique well meaning human being, who in the interests of preservation of life,
health and fitness of oneself and dear ones, seeks to get the best from the
collective knowledge and wisdom already available in the world, the optimum
solution to a health and wellbeing need, tailor crafted from the ocean of
humanity’s frontline repertoire of healing abilities.
bother at all
Every one of you, heirs of
immortal bliss, who read this, is currently experiencing physical reality
through one of seven billion plus human bodies, that are the temples built out
of highly complex molecular structures, assembled into specialized parts that
harmoniously coexist with each other and the environment. It stands to reason that
such feats of dynamic, replenishing natural engineering are subject not only to
time limited decay and decomposition but also to untimely unbalanced and non
harmonious functioning and structural damage that overwhelms the replenishing
capacity and this we know as disease .
Having thus established the common survival
threat we human beings can relate to, it behoves us all as thinking sentient
creatures to stand united in thought, word and deed so far as we can, in our
mutually shared aimto
allow our bodies to perform at their optimum potential and serve outtheir maximum durability.
To put it very simply human beings across the
world are one animal species, as defined currently in biology. So, we can have
the same or similar solutions, that are scientifically sound and more
importantly work in the first place to concerns of life, health and fitness.
Just imagine what happens to any one of us
when we feel unwell or diseased. What is your first reaction even before you
can think clearly. That sinking feeling in the gut, alerting us to a threat to
survival, may be not alarmist but just ever so present in the background. That
urge to get better. We need reassurance that can soothe us and by that I don’t
mean a sweet lullaby but authoritative, confident, easy to understand andempathetic in
approach advise as soon as possible.
That’s the reason why we need access to
sensible information, moderated by experienced, well qualified doctors, that
can easily and quickly convey to us the nature of the illness, how best to
diagnose it as swiftly and certainly as possible, to guage
its severity and get an idea of its course, and finally what strategy to employ
to cure it, based on the best science and technology has to
offer, not constrained by geographical boundaries or ideologies and of course
that which is affordable.
is at stake?
Modern medicine is
relatively new “science”. It is at it’s infancy
compared to other well established hard sciences,which
are better understood. The human body and mind are very complex and difficult
to conduct unbridled experiments on. Therefore the
understanding that accrues is slow and sometimes not accurate as people would
like to believe. Biostatistical methods are new and
only recently applied. Their validity is yet to be established convincingly. Needless to say expert opinion can be divergent, and even
when it is dogmatic by those in premier bully pulpits, can be wrong. This is
being realized increasingly by people all over the world who are astute and
observant of what happens in real life to themselves
and those near and dear to them in states of illness.
We live in a very fast paced and rapidly
changing world, where the deluge of information can leave anyone dazzled. The
internet provides a great platform for the flow of information from different
corners of the world and by a large number of sources
but can provide a contrasting and confusing picture of any topic.
What then is the solution.
This forum sincerely believes in the ability of all individuals to be able to
understand even the most complex scientific theories if properly explained( inspired by Dr Feynman physicist )and in the
ability of the human mind to carefully weigh the pros and cons of any decision
as best suited for that person. We also respect the enormous amount of
scientific work that has preceeded all of us and the
science and technology that continues to evolve rapidly, along with the huge
talent of skillful practitioners of the art of
We believe that every individual should have
at least the access to the necessary information that would be relevant to the
preservation of his or her health and fitness and recovery from disease.Current software capabilities and the
information available on the internet make it possible to distill
very specific information to suit the individual circumstance. This needs
collaboration between information technology savvy professionals and
experienced doctors on a long term basis and this is
what we have achieved in our group.
Modern medical practice is in crisis in many
parts of the world. The biggest challenges are increased public expectations
due to medical industrial complex hyperbole regarding current possibilities,
massive politicisation of health services where the government has taken the
role of prime provider of health care and vested commercial interests
intertwining with the system in a way that the medical practitioner and
patients are put on adversarial platforms, with the general public
disillusioned or sceptical about the quality of care possible and well trained
experienced medical practitioners experiencing unprecedented stress levels and
burn out. Medical education remains weeded to an arcahaic
traditional education model, that stifles creativity and is very inefficient at
best in terms of time scales that are needed for training. The lack of original
thinking among educators particularly in the developing world and emerging
economies, has resulted in blindly aping and catering to the needs of providing
a resource backup for plugging gaps in a failing western model of modern
are the opportunities
has no doubt been a great amount of research and effort in modern medicine.
Some of these have been carried out by a business centric pharmaceutical and
medical manufacturing industry and hence there is a great deal of scepticism
about the quality of this research and there is a tendency amongsignificant sections of the educated
population to doubt the veracity of even some of the well backed up scientific
conclusions of modern medicine.
should be seen as a tragedy and disservice to the
countless number of people who from time immemorial have strived to enhance the
health and well being of all people.
is an age of instant social media and world wide connectivity of information.
This is a marvellous opportunity to widely disseminate and make available in a
relatively short time the necessary information for a large section of the
population to enable themselves to receive the optimal and life saving or enhancing
care they need.
This can be achieved by a dedicated team of
health professionals and IT professionals collaborating and serving as
judicious curators and classifiers and simplifiers or clarifiers of the
relentless deluge of medical information out there on the web.
is at stake?
The cross roads we are at
present can lead us down several paths in terms of the future of individual
health and wellnessoutcomes. The fear among many sceptics is that thefuture of health outcomes to
individuals take second place to medical industrial share profit concerns,
where the billions of human beings are potential customers in whose name
research and future practices can be moulded and shaped. Government led health
initiatives can be hijacked to suit the interests of the industry.
This forum sincerely believes in the
resilience and endless potential of the realized human conciousness.
This is an age of accelerated evolvution of mass
human conciousness. It depends on libertarian
principles which believe in the rightful responsibility of individuals for
their health related outcomes. It believes in the
ability of all people to be able to make the right decisions for themselves
provided they have access to clutter free and unbiased information about the
determinants of health and disease as currently known. Yes it
is a tall task but a beginning has to be made and this is a sincere
Where this forum is unique is in the
unparalleled merger and interaction of professionals with diverse backgrounds
in both information technology and health science and in a openminded yet
scientific approach to theconcernsand challenges
that confront us.
