The Kick-off Meeting of 'Application, Demonstration and Promotion of Non-invasive Diabetes Detector in Thailand' was Held Successfully
During May 5thto 27th, the kick-off meeting of 'Application, Demonstration and Promotion of Non-invasive Diabetes Detector in Thailand' was held successfully in Hefei. Leaders and experts in the fields of diabetes and medical physics from Bureau of International Cooperation Chinese Academy of Sciences, Ramathibodi Hospital of Mahidol University (Thailand), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) attended the meeting.
During the meeting, Jiang Haihe, deputy dean of CAS, briefly introduced the development of CAS and Hefei Comprehensive National Science Center. Professor Boonsong, the chairman of Thai Endocrine Society and deputy dean of Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University, introduced the progress of research, prevention, control and treatment of diabetes in Thailand. He said the hospital will promote the work of this project and accelerate the promotion and application of the new detection technology. Dr. Wang Yikun, project executive person, introduced the background, tasks, work basis and implementation plan of the project, and reported on the main work progress and following plan since the project was established.
The experts group composed of Professor Ji Qiuhe, Professor Zhang Qiu, Professor Liang Dong, Professor Nie Jinsong and Chu Yannan listened carefully to the report and held brilliant discussions.Experts believed that the technical principle of this project is exact. The non-invasive diabetes detector has CFDA certificate and has been widely used in China. The design of this project is reasonable and the feasibility of the project is good. At present, in the field of diabetes diagnosis and treatment, traditional indicators, including fasting blood sugar, glycated albumin and glycated hemoglobin, are invasive detections. Optical detection of advanced glycation products (AGE) belongs to non-invasive detection, and AGE is a direct related factor of diabetes and its complications. Therefore, non-invasive and AGE indicators themselves, have good application prospect. For non-invasive detection of AGE, both sides of China and Thai, or experts, hope to carry out in-depth cooperation in the future.
Speech by Researcher Liu Yong, Deputy Director and Project Leader
Finally, Jiang Haihe, Vice President of CASHIPS( Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences), made conclusion, expressing that the project team should summarize and implement the valuable suggestions from leaders and experts, strive to work in all aspects, strive to successfully accomplish the objectives and tasks of the project, and contribute to the scientific and technological strength of China for the prevention and control of diabetes in Thailand and even in Southeast Asia.
