Revisable Quick List of New Drugs for PG Entrance Exams
by RxPG - 19252 reads, based on 35 votes
Having a handy and brief list of all the latest drugs in the market can be very useful for the medical PG entrance exams. Exams conducted by AIIMS are particularly prone to have one or two such questions as they asked about Bosentan in 2002 and Pyronaridine in 2003 (luckily there were none in the recent AIIMS exam). For an example see this thread from 2003 wherein RxPG members got one such answer right because they discussed it in forums beforehand.

A Funny look at Antimalarial Drugs
by willpower - 14771 reads, based on 92 votes
Antimalarials: The Harem Once upon a time in a parallel Universe, there was a swampy kingdom ruled by King Medico. So, the story goes that once the kingdom was attacked by an epidemic of Malaria (Attack of the Plasmodia). The King (who is you in this story) decided to send his Queens out to destroy Malaria (much like in Chess: the Queen goes out to destroy, the King sits at home and watches ESPN!) He had 10 queens (including one eunuch), a mafia couple, a cyclist-warrior, a new warrior, and a CIA agent. Chloe-Queen (Chloroquine). Right, so…Chloe the Queen was a pretty effective warrior; she fought fast and long. The parasites had occupied the Temples of the Red Co... More
