Our new Caripill, has received positive feedback from doctors treating patients with dengue and are confident the usage of the pill can be further extended to treating patients with other life-threatening disorders that require restoration of blood platelets. He further added, The rising number of dengue cases among children, has driven us to introduce paediatric Caripill syrup for easy consumption and plan to launch it soon.Mr Jayaraj G Executive Vice President, Micro Labs Ltd, claimed "Caripill is backed by adequate scientific data that confirm the beneficial increase in the platelet count in dengue cases. Besides Caripill underwent rigorous formulation research and a four month stability study under simulated temperature controlled environment to ascertain its stability during drug distribution transit.
