College of Pharmacy research papers to be presented in int’l conferences

Date Posted: Jul 17, 2012 at 11:51:46 AM


Students from the College of Pharmacy presented four research papers last April 26-28 at the 2012 Philippine Pharmacists Association National Convention. Three of these were then approved for international presentation  in poster and oral formats.

 

The research entitled Counseling Practices on Anti-TB Drugs among Community Pharmacists in Manila, authored by John Paul Alvarez, Embradia Aslahon, Johaira Datueman, Rudy Fernandez, Noraisa Mangondato, Jover Mosqueda, and Prof. Rogie Royce Carandang was approved for poster presentation at the 43rd Union World Conference on Lung Health which will be held on November 11-13 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This same research was also accepted for oral presentation at the 24th Federation of Asian Pharmaceutical Congress, which will be held in Bali, Indonesia on September 13-16.

 

Two other research papers have also been approved for oral presentation at the Bali congress: Hepatoprotective Activity Evaluation of Chrysanthemum indicum Linne (Fam. Asteraceae) Flower Extract on Carbon-Tetrachloride Induced Acute Hepatotoxicity in Rats by Tessa Fay Amargo, Mary Robelle Lontok, Darwin Obel, Sarah Jane Toledo, and Ronald John Villena and Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices on Medication Error Reporting Among Health Professionals from Hospitals in Manila by Grace Beatrice Hocson, Kristle Mae Respicio, Danica Resuello, and Chariz Reynoso. Prof. Carandang served as mentor for the two groups.

 

The approval of these papers for international presentation proves that the College of Pharmacy is capable of producing quality researches that can benefit not only the local  but also the international community in terms of health promotion. Darwin Obel
