About the Programme:

The department of pharmacology organized a guest lecture by Dr. Chandrasekhar S. on the topic “Newer pharmacotherapeutic concepts in the management of autoimmune diseases” on 5th October, 2018 between 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm. Dr. Chandrasekharthe founder and director of ChanRe Rheumatology and Immunology center and research in Bangalore. He was formerly working as Professor and HOD in the department of general medicine at MS Ramaiah Medical College and then resigned to focus on his current establishment. He has completed his MBBS from Karnataka Medical College, MD in General Medicine from Mysore Medical College, DNB from National Board of Examination in New Delhi and DM in Clinical Immunology from Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Lucknow.

At RRMCH, he enlightened the faculty and post graduates of various departments as well as the undergraduates about the present trend in the treatment of autoimmune diseases with a focus on Rheumatoid Arthritis. The treatment of autoimmune disorders has come a long way in the past two decades. The focus of management for these diseases was primarily palliative and symptomatic and was a “One size fits all” kind of approach. Meaning that treatment was same for all patients with the disease. Now, we are in an era where therapeutic options for autoimmune disorders can bring about remission and can be tailored for individual patients. The lecture was followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience and ended with high tea at 4:00pm.
