The couple say their invention required four years of research, passing through various stages of development in the laboratories of the Tata Memorial Hospital, IIT Mumbai and Apollo Hospital in Hyderabad. “If there is no research paper on it yet,” says Dr Shome, “it is only because we have still not patented the molecule, which is basically a mix of many growth factors.”
