Prof. Dr. Sayed Hassan KhaderIndustrial Pharmacy Department)
Through this joint project between the Faculty of Pharmacy and the Faculty of Medicine, Assiut University, the Sugar and Integrative Industries Company, and the Institute for Studies and Research on Sugar Industry Technology, some pharmaceutical preparations were formulated and prepared in the form of tablets and a diabetic oral gel containing some important and necessary vitamins for the normal and healthy growth of children. These formulations have been tested from a physical and chemical point of view and found that they are in line with the official pharmacopoeia. A clinical study was conducted on the oral gel containing some vitamins with the participation of 100 children at the age of 6-36 months. It was found that there is a clear effect of the oral gel containing vitamins in treating vitamin deficiencies, improving appetite and increasing children's weight.
