    The following appears on the Daily Mirror today. I remember the same news before, as a matter of fact, several years ago. It was cancer cure then. Extracted from Vernonia zeylanica, a shrub endemic to Sri Lanka. The Sinhalese name is "pupula". Most likely Dhammika Paniya v 2.0. :ROFLMAO:

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A scientific think-tank from the University of Colombo is in the process of launching an anti-aging nutraceutical capsule for the first time in Sri Lanka.

    Speaking to Daily Mirror, Prof. Sameera R. Samarakoon from the Institute of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at the University of Colombo, who is also the head of the team said the capsule had been made from natural ingredients; nevertheless, the nature of the ingredients can’t be declared at the moment.

    The professor also said that after long-term research, the drug is in the final stage of launch.

    “It will be launched within the next few months probably in four months,” he said.

    “These type of anti-aging drugs are quite popular in the world market and some imported products are also available in Sri Lanka; however, they are sold at exorbitant prices,” he added.

    Moreover, the Professor pointed out that since the product is a traditional formulation, the approval is to be sought from the Department of Ayurveda.

    “The product has been produced in collaboration with the University Business Linkage, where Universities share knowledge, research, innovation, and cutting-edge technology,” he underscored.

    Founded under Prof. Eric H. Karunanayake's leadership, the Institute of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Biotechnology stands as an independent entity within the University of Colombo with a view to provide for instruction, training, research and development and consultancy in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biotechnology.

    In addition the latest research on the anti-aging drug, the Colombo University’s Institute of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biotechnology recently launched a nutraceutical drug that can destroy cancer cells of about 25 types of cancer. The drug is currently in the market.

    The nontoxic herbal formulation is a result of 12 years of scientific research by a team of researchers headed by Prof. Sameera Samarakoon.

    Branded as ‘Vernolac’, the nutraceutical drug with anti-cancer properties, can prevent the rapid growth of cancer cells and it could also be used by people who are at the risk of developing cancer.

    Furthermore, the team has also launched ‘Satiny’ hair oil, which can act on hair loss, which is also available in the market.

    Dr.Sameera said some time ago they successfully introduced a formula made with the help of ancient indigenous medicine for baldness.
    I do not know what happened to it, though it stated it is available in market. What are results?
    seemed a media savvy with less scientific knowledge
    I do not think they were successful .
    This is bad for UOC's 100 year old legacy of FOC and great scientists of international repute.
    Once it had Dr. Nalin and Dr Gevidu with JC Ideology who denounced everything including Kandalama at that time. Both are now in the mainstream politics . Both still thrive on deception, the same way they deceived students in early 90's till they were both sacked by then VC Prof GLP under UNP regime.

    I know this Sameera bugger. He is an attention seeker and a media whore. Before he completes the scientific process he creates a media storm. I am glad that I did not learn from him. He undermines good work done by other scientists in Sri Lanka.

    This is my worry.... The Colombo University will NOT make history, but it will be history. :(
