Scientific research is a lifelong mission

Over 40 years of plying scientific research, having invented and produced successfully many kinds of natural herbal medicines, among which Crila from Crinum latifolium L. is the first capsule for uterine fibroids in the world. At the age of 60s, science is still a passion in Dr. Nguyen Thi Ngoc Tram.

Everyone has their own passion and aspiration. They wish their lives had as few difficulties as possible. Meanwhile, there is a woman having the heart to choose herself the hardest road for the purpose of serving community. That woman is Pharmacist – Dr. Nguyen Thi Ngoc Tram – the inventor of a capsule from Crinum latifolium L. with good treatment efficacy on BPH and uterine fibroids.

The success of research on Crinum latifolium L. starts from a story

‘A female patient in Mekong Delta suffering from uterine fibroids hadn’t got pregnant although she got married long since. Wishing to have grandchildren, her husband family forced them to separate. Now, everything is OK. She recovered from her disease and also gave birth to a boy. Calling to say thank to me, she couldn’t keep back her tears ‘I don’t have opportunity to visit and thank you face to face, but I and my boy are grateful to you all our lives’.

This is the very motivation which encourages Dr. Tram and her co-workers to overcome all challenges in the last 15 years, turning a medicinal plant known through words of mouth in folk to a new medicine from Vietnamese herbs for tumor diseases.

To reciprocate such this trust is to create the reputation on both domestic and foreign market based on products with high quality, safety and treatment efficacy on patients. Thien Duoc company has recently been presented ‘Vietnam Excellent Medicine 2014’ by Drug Administration – the Ministry of Health for good products and enterprises. This is recognition and evaluation of real value of products on the market as well as in science.

We could say that Vietnam has numerous valuable medicinal materials. How to exploit the genetic source of these plants used as raw materials for producing medicine will be a story of scientists full of passion including Pharmacist – Dr. Nguyen Thi Ngoc Tram – a scientist always having a feeling that scientific research to create many new medicines from Vietnamese herbs is a lifelong career.
