Editorial

Dr. Jeeson - June 2017

Dear colleagues,

The IAP Drug Formulary was officially released in 2005 and is now being used by over 10,000 pediatricians all over the country and abroad. More than 20,000 are using the IAP Drug Formulary mobile app. The Quarterly Web Update facility has made the contents quite dynamic. Changes are being made in the formulary as and when new developments in pharmacology and pediatric therapeutics became available.

After 44 Web Updates, the present 46th Web Updates contents are very different from that in the original book - IAP Pediatric Drug Formulary 2004. Therefore, every 3rd year a new hard copy edition of the book - latest being the 4th Edition - IAP Pediatric Drug Formulary 2015 - is published. The 5th Edition - IAP Drug Formulary 2018 - is to be in print by year end 2017.

The 'Pocket Dose Book of Medicines in Children and Adolescents' (new 6th edition is available) is a very popular publication of the IAP Drug Formulary.

All these products are available for online purchase at www.iapdrugformulary.com, This website of the IAP Drug Formulary also provides the Online Search facility for the users with valid password. Those who became an member of the Indian Academy of Pediatrics on or before Dec 31st 2015 could avail of 1 free IAP Drug Formulary mobile app key by registering for the same at this website. The IAP Drug Formulary mobile app is available in all platforms except the Windows version as the Windows has as yet not given their clearance despite regular application from our administrators. All quarterly Web Updates are automatically updated on these mobile apps. All users are requested to register at the site - www.iapdrugformulary.com - as soon as they buy the software so that their CD Key would be available in our archives for recall in case the user looses the same. We would also be able to send the user newsletters regarding availability of latest updates if the users e mail id is available on the website registration form. Please read through installation and update tips available at the site.

The Formulary contains information, which, to the best of our knowledge, is accurate and up-to-date. But every practitioner must, as we have always insisted, take individual responsibility for taking all precautions when dispensing and administering drugs to children. We are looking forward to comments and criticism regarding the update.

We place on record, our sincere thanks to IAP President 2016 Dr Pramod Jog and IAP Hon Secretary General Dr Bakul Parekh; our IAP President 2017 Dr Anupam Sachdeva and the IAP Executive Board 2016 for their support, Executive Committee of IAPCMIC for their encouragement and help and all the IAP Sub Chapters and the contributors for their expert inputs. The IAP Drug Formulary 2015 is the result of inputs from 98 contributors who are experts in their respective specialties and we are indebted to them for sparing their time and expertise for this project. I request all Chairpersons and Secretaries of our sub chapters to continue updating their respective chapters to make this quarterly web publication of the IAP a success. SIDSSOL Technologies Pvt. Ltd., Bangalore has continued to be very professional and astute in their work.


Wishing all users a Happy 2017.

Dear colleagues,

The IAP Drug Formulary Web Update 2015(2) Edition 38 - 36th Web Update and 2nd for 2015 - is ready for download. The IAP Drug Formulary Web Update 2015(2) Edition 39 - 37th Web Update and 2nd for 2015 - is ready for download. This edition contains edition of 2 drug monographs and addition of an illness category. We welcome the IAP office bearers for 2015 and include Dr Santosh Soans as contributor for the new Intensive Care Chapter of IAP Drug Formulary.

On the mobile apps, IAP Essential Medicines List and General Prescribing Information links have been added. The user interface of the mobile apps have been improved to make it more user friendly. It is available for iOS (iPhone, iPad), Android, Symbian and Blackberry and will soon be available on the Windows app platform. This facility along with the IAP Drug Formulary 2015 - 4th hard copy edition released at PEDICON 2015 in New Delhi, the Online Desktop and PDA version and the 'Pocket Dose Book of Medicines in Children and Adolescents' (new 5th edition released at PEDICON 2015) have made this formulary a wholesome product. 'IAP Drug Formulary - Infectious Disease Update''' - another publication of the IAP Drug Formulary was re-printed year before last on popular demand. The mobile app and the Online Desktop and PDA version, empowers the user to browse all the data from ones Desktop or any model of mobile phones/PDAs with internet connection from anywhere in the world. However, the user needs to have the CDRom of the formulary to have the user id (CD Key given on the back cover of the CD) to be able to download the quarterly web updates that will continue to be available. This quarterly web publication of the IAP continues to be the first drug formulary in the world that provides such a facility.

The IAP Drug Formulary 2015 book (4th hard copy edition of the formulary), the CD of the IAP Drug Formulary, the mobile apps, other publications of IAP DF and the Online Desktop and PDA/mobile phone version may be bought either by paying online at our website www.iapdrugformulary.com or by sending a DD in favour of 'IAP Drug Formulary' payable at Kochi (for Indian buyers only) to our IAP Drug Formulary office at Cochin (address given on purchase or contact us page on the website) - online purchase is preferred.

All users are requested to register at the site - www.iapdrugformulary.com - as soon as they buy the software so that their CD Key would be available in our archives for recall in case the user looses the same. We would also be able to send the user newsletters regarding availability of latest updates if the users e mail id is available on the website registration form. Please read through installation and update tips available at the site.

The Formulary contains information, which, to the best of our knowledge, is accurate and up-to-date. But every practitioner must, as we have always insisted, take individual responsibility for taking all precautions when dispensing and administering drugs to children. We are looking forward to comments and criticism regarding the update.

We place on record, our sincere thanks to IAP President 2015 Dr SS Kamath and IAP Hon Secretary General Dr Pravin Mehta; our IAP President Elect 2015 Dr Pramod Jog and the IAP Executive Board 2015 for their support, Executive Committee of IAPCMIC for their encouragement and help and all the IAP Sub Chapters and the contributors for their expert inputs.

Dr. Jeeson - December 2014

Dear colleagues,

The IAP Drug Formulary was officially released in 2005 and is now being used by over 5500 pediatricians all over the country. The Quarterly Web Update facility has made the contents quite dynamic. Changes could be made in the formulary as and when new developments in pharmacology and pediatric therapeutics became available. We propose that along with the Quarterly Web Updates, a new edition of the book will be printed once in 3 years.

The IAP Drug Formulary mobile apps (details available on clicking on message loaded in the Latest Highlights section on home page of www.iapdrugformulary.com) was launched in Jan 2013. It is available for iOS (iPhone, iPad), Android, Symbian, Blackberry and will soon be available as an Windows App.

The IAP Drug Formulary 2012 - 3rd hard copy edition - was released in January 2012, during the IAP National Conference in Gurgaon. This book and the Online Desktop and PDA version of the IAP Drug Formulary have made it a wholesome product. All mobile and PDA users any where in the world can now download and browse through the contents of the formulary. We have now started selling the formulary abroad. Online purchase of the book and/or CD or the online version alone is now possible. The IAP Action Plan 2010 of our IAP President 2010 - Dr Deepak Ugra - 'Going International' - ensured that The IAP Drug Formulary 2009 (Book) and CD were sent to all member countries of the International Pediatric Association (IPA) and Executive Committee and Standing Committee members of this organisation.

Two additional publications of the formulary - 'IAP Drug Formulary - Infectious Disease Update 2011' and 'Pocket Dose Book of Medicines in Children and Adolescents' are also available at the IAP Drug Formulary office in Cochin.

All users are requested to register at the site - iapdrugformulary.com - as soon as they buy the software so that their CD Key (username) would be available in our archives for recall in case the user looses the same. We would also be able to send the user newsletters regarding availability of latest updates if the user's email id is available on the website registration form.

The Formulary contains information, which, to the best of our knowledge, is accurate and up-to-date. But every practitioner must, as we have always insisted, take individual responsibility for taking all precautions when dispensing and administering drugs to children. We are looking forward to comments and criticism.

We hope to continue this service in the same professional manner that comes to be associated with its management to date. All queries regarding the formulary and regarding drug use in pediatrics in general are being answered. Our special thanks to the contributors from the various IAP sub chapters. Our beloved IAP President 2012 - Dr Rohit C Agarwal has been extremely supportive and proactive. We are sure that the formulary will grow in stature under his able guidance. Our efficient Hon Gen Secretary - Dr Sailesh G Gupta - has been encouragement personified. We wish to also thank all the office bearers and members of IAP CMIC for their cooperation and guidance.

All contributors to the IAP Pediatric Drug Formulary 2012 have spent their valuable time and offered their expertise towards this publication - we thank them all profusely. Working with SIDS, Bangalore has been a pleasure all along and I'm sure all the users will also vouch for their prompt and efficient services. We are thankful to Pixel Studio for printing the book; Wyeth, MSD and Merck Ltd., for providing the Educational Grant for the printing of the IAP Drug Formulary 2012, development of the Online Desktop and PDA version of the IAP Drug Formulary and yearly fee for website maintenance and creating the quarterly Web Updates, respectively.

Dr. Jeeson - December 2012

Dear colleagues,

The IAP Drug Formulary was officially released in 2005 and is now being used by over 5500 pediatricians all over the country. The Quarterly Web Update facility has made the contents quite dynamic. Changes could be made in the formulary as and when new developments in pharmacology and pediatric therapeutics became available. We propose that along with the Quarterly Web Updates, a new edition of the book will be printed once in 3 years.

The IAP Drug Formulary 2012 - 3rd hard copy edition - was released in January 2012, during the IAP National Conference in Gurgaon. This book and the Online Desktop and PDA version of the IAP Drug Formulary have made it a wholesome product. All mobile and PDA users any where in the world can now download and browse through the contents of the formulary. We have now started selling the formulary abroad. Online purchase of the book and/or CD or the online version alone is now possible. The IAP Action Plan 2010 of our IAP President 2010 - Dr Deepak Ugra - 'Going International' - ensured that The IAP Drug Formulary 2009 (Book) and CD were sent to all member countries of the International Pediatric Association (IPA) and Executive Committee and Standing Committee members of this organisation.

Two additional publications of the formulary - 'IAP Drug Formulary - Infectious Disease Update 2011' and 'Pocket Dose Book of Medicines in Children and Adolescents' are also available at the IAP Drug Formulary office in Cochin.

All users are requested to register at the site - iapdrugformulary.com - as soon as they buy the software so that their CD Key (username) would be available in our archives for recall in case the user looses the same. We would also be able to send the user newsletters regarding availability of latest updates if the user's email id is available on the website registration form. Please read through installation and update tips available at the site.

The Formulary contains information, which, to the best of our knowledge, is accurate and up-to-date. But every practitioner must, as we have always insisted, take individual responsibility for taking all precautions when dispensing and administering drugs to children. We are looking forward to comments and criticism.

We hope to continue this service in the same professional manner that comes to be associated with its management to date. All queries regarding the formulary and regarding drug use in pediatrics in general are being answered. Our special thanks to the contributors from the various IAP sub chapters. Our beloved IAP President 2012 - Dr Rohit C Agarwal has been extremely supportive and proactive. We are sure that the formulary will grow in stature under his able guidance. Our efficient Hon Gen Secretary - Dr Sailesh G Gupta - has been encouragement personified. We wish to also thank all the office bearers and members of IAP CMIC for their cooperation and guidance.

This year 2 new publications of the formulary - 'IAP Drug Formulary - Infectious Disease Update 2011' and 'Pocket Dose Book of Medicines in Children and Adolescents' will be released at Pedicon 2011 in Jaipur and will be availble for sale from then on. These books may be purchased paying online or by DD payable at Cochin.

The permanent office of The IAP Drug Formulary is functioning at Cochin since Jan 2010. All communications regarding the IAP Drug Formulary may be made to the Editor-in-chief at the new office address given on the Purchase page and Contact Us page on the website www.iapdrugformulary.com.

All users are requested to register at the site - iapdrugformulary.com - as soon as they buy the software so that their CD Key (username) would be available in our archives for recall in case the user looses the same. We would also be able to send the user newsletters regarding availability of latest updates if the user's email id is available on the website registration form. Please read through installation and update tips available at the site.

The Formulary contains information, which, to the best of our knowledge, is accurate and up-to-date. But every practitioner must, as we have always insisted, take individual responsibility for taking all precautions when dispensing and administering drugs to children. We are looking forward to comments and criticism.

We hope to continue this service in the same professional manner that comes to be associated with its management to date. All queries regarding the formulary and regarding drug use in pediatrics in general are being answered. Our special thanks to the contributors from the various IAP sub chapters. Our beloved IAP President 2010 - Dr Deepak Ugra has been extremely supportive and proactive. We are sure that the formulary will grow in stature under his able guidance. Our efficient Hon Gen Secretary - Dr Tanmay Amladi - has been encouragement personified. We wish to also thank all the office bearers and members of IAP CMEG for their cooperation and guidance. Working with SIDS, Bangalore has been a pleasure all along and I'm sure all the users will also vouch for their prompt and efficient services. We are thankful to Pixel Studio for printing the book; Wyeth, MSD and Merck Ltd., for providing the Educational Grant for the printing of the IAP Drug Formulary 2009, development of the Online Desktop and PDA version of the IAP Drug Formulary and yearly fee for website maintenance and creating the quarterly Web Updates, respectively; and all those who have contributed towards publishing the 2 books this year.

Dr. Jeeson - September 2010

Dear colleagues,

The IAP Drug Formulary was officially released in 2005 and is now being used by over 4000 pediatricians all over the country. The Quarterly Web Update facility has made the contents quite dynamic. Changes could be made in the formulary as and when new developments in pharmacology and pediatric therapeutics became available. We propose that along with the Quarterly Web Updates, a new edition of the book will be printed once in 5 years. The IAP Drug Formulary 2009 - 2nd hard copy edition - has sold around 1000 copies since it was released in January this year. This book and the Online Desktop and PDA version of the IAP Drug Formulary have made the it a wholesome product. All mobile and PDA users any where in the world can now download and browse through the contents of the formulary. We have now started selling the formulary abroad. Online purchase of the book and/or CD or the online version alone are now possible.

The IAP Executive Board, at its meeting on 6/1/10 at Hyderabad, decided to transfer the permanent office of its publication - The IAP Drug Formulary - to Cochin.

Dear colleagues,

The IAP Drug Formulary was officially released in 2005 and is now being used by over 3500 pediatricians all over the country. The Quarterly Web Update facility has made the contents quite dynamic. Changes could be made in the formulary as and when new developments in pharmacology and pediatric therapeutics became available. After 15 Web Updates, the present contents are very different from that in the original book - IAP Pediatric Drug Formulary 2004. Therefore a new edition of the book - IAP Pediatric Drug Formulary 2009 - is being presented. We propose that along with the Quarterly Web Updates, a new edition of the book will be printed once in 5 years.

This book and the Online Desktop and PDA version of the IAP Drug Formulary has been included in the IAP Action Plan 2009. The much awaited Online PDA version will ensure that the formulary could be downloaded into even the latest versions of the PDA. This was not possible till date as the formulary was compatible with only windows based palm tops that were in the market in 2005.

The IAP Executive Board, at its meeting on 6/1/10 at Hyderabad, decided to transfer the permanent office of its publication - The IAP Drug Formulary - to Cochin.

Dr. Jeeson - July 2006

Dear colleagues,

I am extremely happy that the IAP Drug Formulary has been accepted as an official publication of the Indian Academy of Pediatrics and is being widely used by pediatricians all over the country. This year we proposed to have quarterly web updates but due to certain issues that needed to be discussed at the June Board regarding these updates, there was a delay in uploading the 1st update for 2006. We will have 2 more web updates this year. It has been a fabulous learning experience and we are happy that most users are happy with the product and that almost everyone had no problem obtaining the 1st web update in December 2005.The present update will contain a new chapter on snake bite and scorpion sting, changes in the endocrinology chapter and additions and updates of around 30 drugs used in pediatrics.

We hope to continue this service in the same professional manner that come to be associated with its management to date. All queries regarding the formulary and regarding drug use in pediatrics in generalare being answered.Our special thanks to the contributors from the various IAP sub chapters. I would like to make a special mention of a non-pediatrician who has made a contribution of his invaluable experience in the field of snake and scorpion envenomation in this web update - Dr Himmat Bawaskar. A big thank you to you sir. Our beloved IAP President 2006 - Dr Nitin Shah - and the efficient Hon Gen Secretary - Dr Deepak Ugra - have been very supportive and helpful. I wish to also thank all the office bearers and members of IAP CMEG for their cooperation and guidance.

Dr. Jeeson - December 2005

Dear colleagues,

The IAP Drug Formulary has been an unqualified success due to the high standard of inputs from all the contributors. The web update is the final test for the IAP Drug Formulary. If every user is able to download the updates from the website on to their hard disc without a hitch, ours could possibly be the first pediatric drug formulary in the world providing such a facility.

This update has a few unique features. It is for the first time that IAP and NNF have pitched in together for a formulary of this kind. The Neonatology chapter has been completely overhauled with contribution from 2 NNF members and 2 members from the IAP Neonatology Sub Chapter. An excellent chapter on Dermatology has been added in this update. Most contentious issues have been addressed and all comments by users have been considered in detail and changes made wherever appropriate.

However, the request of many, that users be provided the facility to add generic names of their choice to the program, could not be complied with. This was due to a technical problem. Being a master driven product, the updates from the main master would go haywire if users started editing the data, and there would be no single master anymore. Every user would have his own master. Further, the formulary software is a front end to display the data entered in various combinations using complex queries and the data has necessarily to be entered using a common data entry package.

The Formulary contains information, which, to the best of our knowledge, is accurate and up-to-date. But every practitioner must, as we have always insisted, take individual responsibility for taking all precautions when dispensing and administering drugs to children. We are looking forward to comments and criticism regarding the update.

I place on record, my sincere thanks to IAP President 2005, Dr Raju C Shah and IAP Hon Gen Secretary Dr Bharat Agarwal for their support and all the IAP Sub Chapters and the contributors for their expert inputs. SIDS-SolutionZ and Pixel Studio have continued their good work.

I hope the meaningful updates can continue to be made available every year so that this ongoing publication of IAP meets international standards and continues to be sought after by all those caring for children and adolescents.

Dr. Jeeson - December 2004

Dear colleagues,

When I conceived the IAP Pediatric Drug Formulary CDRom and book Project for the IAP Computer and Medical Electronics Group and presented it to Dr M K C Nair the incoming National President of the IAP in 2003, it was just a distant dream.

I immediately got the support from the IAP CMEG Chairperson Dr Naveen Thacker and the planning began. A sponsor was identified and SIDS, Bangalore was entrusted, after a thorough search, as the software company capable of developing the desktop, palmtop and web versions of the Formulary, simultaneously. The yearly or even half-yearly updates were to be downloadable on to the users hard disc from a third party web host that could be accessed via the IAP parent website - iapindia.org.

The project report was presented at the Executive Board of IAP at the XXXXIst IAP National Conference at Chennai. Perseverance and meticulous pre-conference follow-up ensured that the project was included by Dr. M. K. C. Nair as one of his Presidential Action Plans 2004 during the Executive Board meeting. This gave the project the much-needed boost.

The sub-specialty chapters of the IAP were requested to submit recommendations for treatment of pediatric illnesses pertaining the their respective specialty and the response was overwhelming. These 35 contributors have generously spent their valuable time and effort in formulating their respective presentations. Their expertise and rich experience in the field have made the IAP Recommendations, for almost every known pediatric illness, a baseline resource for future updations. Drug monographs and a few brand names for each drug available in India were compiled from various sources. The 8 editors reviewed the huge database, which, after corrections and editing, was made as brief, to-the-point and uniform as possible so as to make it easy to scan. It could therefore be an excellent tabletop reference book for every pediatrician, general practitioner and medical expert dealing with children in India.

SIDS provided a data entry application which was modified, as and when needed, to suit our requirements. Mr. Narayanan of Pixel Studio, Kochi - our publisher - managed the data entry. Corrections and checking the data was a mammoth exercise.

The IAP Pediatric Drug Formulary CDRom and Book contains information which, to our knowledge, is up-to-date. But the practitioner would be responsible for taking all precautions while dispensing and administering medications to children. There may be omissions and errors in this, our first edition and users must pardon us for them. Do feel free to communicate with me regarding these mistakes and omissions. The CDRom and Book are for private circulation only and intends to promote correct and ethical pediatric treatment protocols.

I would like to take this opportunity to place on record my heartfelt thanks to IAP President 2004, Dr MKC Nair, for including this project as one of his Presidential Plans 2004, Hon General Secretary IAP, Dr Bharat Agarwal for his unstinted cooperation, the editors, all the sub specialty chapters and other contributors for their involvement, CMEG Chairperson Dr Naveen Thacker, Secretary Dr C P Bansal, CMEG Executive Committee and each and every CMEG member for the encouragement and unconditional support, SIDS, Mr Narayanan of Pixel Studios and Apex Laboratories Pvt Ltd, our sponsor for making this dream a reality.

Thank you one and all. Hope the CDRom and BOOK will be useful to all its users.
