Mingpao Interview 明報專訪我們技術團隊 副行政總裁馮昕顥、營運總監郭汶鈺、臨牀及法規經理李慧敏，接受明報專訪，講解PURE Index Test尿液測試（譜宜評分測試）技術。『現時唯一確診前列腺癌方法是活組織檢查，需要從病人肛門放入前列腺針，在超聲波監察下，刺穿直腸抽取前列腺組織。由於超聲波無法顯示前列腺癌，所以醫生只能隨機抽取前列腺組織，約抽18針至24針。有部分風險較高個案，會先用磁力共振儀（MRI），看前列腺有沒有陰影，以找出出現癌症比較可疑的位置才活檢。病人在活檢後，覺得痛楚，或大小便出血、發燒等都是常見現象。這正是醫學界努力尋找其他檢測前列腺癌方法的理由，希望在低風險的前提下減少活檢。』節選自文章，詳情可參考以下連結：明報即時新聞
Metro Broadcast我們的副行政總裁馮博士受邀出席新城財經台《財知大道》，分享本地醫療創科優勢同介紹譜宜評分。隨著人口老化，政府對於照顧長者的醫療開支日益增加，而男士前列腺癌新症近10年激增，發病指數不斷上升，在男性常見癌症中排第三。我們所推出的最新檢測技術，可為有需要的人士提供一個無創、無痛、準確率高的風險評估指數。有助應付日後市場對於前列腺癌的檢測需要，及為政府醫療節省開支。希望籍此機會，可以讓大家了解我們的最新技術，亦可讓更多人關注男士健康話題啦。12月20日 9:00-9:30 節目重溫：https://bit.ly/3yNBhVS

- As the founder of New Life Medicine Technology Company Limited (NLMT), Gary Wong is on a mission to innovate medical technology to help detect illnesses. “Current medical systems are far from perfect; hospitals are understaffed and patients have to wait years for a proper scan. Fortunately, my scientific research is achieving satisfying results and I feel obliged to come up with practical solutions.” Wong is also the head and chair professor of the Department of Chemistry at Hong Kong Baptist University, of which NLMT is a spin-off company.
- They are constantly looking for new ideas with the belief that innovative research and development will bring a breakthrough in medicine tech, with the goal being to help tackle the current challenges of traditional clinical diagnosis. “Research for New, We serve for Life. This is our motto,” says Wong.
- When it comes to his personal view on men’s health, Wong is familiar with the stigma of seeking help. “Most men tend to be more masculine and confident, especially in Asian communities. They often don’t speak out when they feel uncomfortable. There’s a saying in Chinese that translates to ‘if one will not seek treatment if one does not want to accept he/she is ill,’” he says. Because of his profession, Wong is acutely aware of the significance of taking care of yourself. However, as someone living in one of the busiest cities in the world, he also understands that it can be difficult to find balance. “It’s important for men to have an open-mind when discussing health. As a scientist, it’s easy to convince myself of the potential downsides when I don’t live a balanced lifestyle. But as long as I understand the importance of maintaining physical and mental health, I will always make time.”
- As an expert on the subject that’s close to home for the Movember cause, Wong says it’s essential to make their health a priority by getting regular checkups. “One of the reasons we chose to work on prostate cancer diagnosis was that we discovered it to be one of the most prevalent cancers in men worldwide. But the fact that prostate cancer diagnoses often involve a painful and possibly embarrassing procedure in the form of digital rectal examination have put men off getting checks,” he explains. “We hope that our approach can show men around the world that early diagnosis is key and they should not be afraid of it.”
