Warm greetings to all.

“I will use treatment to help the sick according to my ability and judgment, but never with the view to injury and wrongdoing…Into whatsoever houses I enter, I will enter to help the sick.”

It’s a proud privilege for us to introduce the inaugural edition of ‘RxFactor’, a one-of-a-kind initiative from the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF PHARMACOLOGY AND THERAPEUTICS. The newsletter ‘RX factor’ has been planned with a slew of new thinking, at the same time striving to retain the roots of historical thoughts that have greatly contributed to the growth of Pharmacology and Therapeutics as a specialty. Our mission will be dedicated to nurturing the passion for pharmacology and therapeutics in young minds and with a vision of creating a drive for rational prescribing among the clinical community.

RxFactor has been designed to encompass the range and breadth of Pharmacology and therapeutics ranging from Medical Education, Pharmaco-vigilance, Research, and Therapeutics. The highlights of the newsletter will be an Academic Corner focussing on Current Therapeutics, New Drugs, Banned Drugs, an Integrated Approach to Therapeutics, and a Research Corner focussing on Trends in Current Research & Areas of research for UG & PG. There will also be dedicated sections on Pharmacovigilance with adverse drug reactions updates aimed at widening the horizon of safe therapeutics as well as new Teaching & Learning methods highlighting the importance of Competency Building & Skill Development. Current Updates from Regulatory Bodies and Ethics will also have a prominent role. Finally, RxFactor will be spiced with Mini-Quiz, Puzzles, and related Cartoons. We hope that the newsletter will serve as an edifice of knowledge and will definitely leave an imprint on the minds of the reader.

We take this opportunity to thank our association team for this initiative, their valuable insights, and undeterred efforts. We would also like to thank our eminent group of contributors of RxFactor for their untiring efforts and constant support in making this e-newsletter a grand success. To quote Neil Armstrong here, This is a small step for us, as individuals but a giant leap for our specialty.
We look forward to a happy education and mutual learning with all our readers.
