Haemorrhoids (otherwise known as piles) is one of the most common gastrointestinal disorders seen by general practitioners and surgeons. It is estimated that about 75% of population will have haemorrhoids at some point in their lives and is most common among adults ages 45 to 65, even though it can occur at any age and affects both men and women.
The natural evolution of haemorrhoids is benign in nature, but they tend to get worse over time, and therefore they should be treated as soon as they occur. The term haemorrhoids (or piles) is used to describe the enlargement of the venous tissues of the anal region, which becomes inflamed or prolapsed.
With the objective of providing faster and superior relief to patients, especially in Grade II and Grade III conditions, Next Gen Pharma focused on formulation, development, and standardisation of specific combination of herbo-mineral products.
With appropriate Clinical studies done and validations established, Next Gen launched Roidosanal® as the right management therapy, bringing Ayurvedic science to the forefront. Dr D B Narayana, an industry veteran and one of the leading experts in the area of Ayurvedic sciences, said “Roidosanal® is a novel example of the traditional medicine married with the standardisation of modern medicine, with proven efficacy, safety and compliance”
According to Kanwaldeep Chadha, who also holds the patent for this novel herbo-mineral combination, “The key challenge in bringing the vast advantages of traditional medicine into modern medicine is the standardisation of the herbal components, its formulation stability, overcoming the quality issues and getting to pharmacovigilance compliance. Next Gen invests a lot in such studies to attain the necessary product quality and solution efficacy.”
