Dear readers of the Kauverian,
Novelty is the spice of life; so, we begin with a new section, "Letters to the editor!".
We invite you to post your thoughts on articles published elsewhere on which you have a clear view to express.
Dr. Karpagambal Sairam inaugurates that section.
Right at the onset of COVID MOHFW had listed some drugs as experimental therapy and advised that such drugs be exhibited in a clinical trial setting.
Dr. Muralidhar, Critical Care Consultant at Kauvery ECB, reports on Ulinastatin. A study on Baricitinib and Remdesivir shall follow.
At last Kauvery hopes to migrate out of paper and get set to launch electronic registries.
Heart Failure Registry at Heart City Trichy and Tumor Registry of the Kauvery Tumor Board shall be the first two.
More are in the works.

We hope to publish eventually the Kauvery Handbook on Medical Statistics.
Does his article on "Two Way ANOVA" remind you of an Innova?

The diagnostic image posted by Dr. Subbiah is both striking and intensely pruritic!
