          “In 1963, we discovered intracranial hemorrhage cases in pediatric patients. We continued conducting research and follow this disease for over 30 years until this disease was eradicated from Thailand. Since vitamin K supplement was found to protect from this disease, in 1994, we contacted a pharmaceutical company in Switzerland who supported us in supplying vitamin K supplement. It was first used in Siriraj Hospital and Ramathibodi Hospital, and it was found to be effective in treating the illness as well as reducing the mortality. My inspiration to work hard came from H.R.H Prince Mahidol of Songkla who guided us to treat our patient in a holistic approach, with compassion and to put ourselves in patient’s shoes. We needed to focus on the society and the patient’s environment.” Emeritus Professor Dr. Parttraporn Isarangkura said.
