CUHK Researchers Receive Six State Science and Technology Awards
中大研究人員獲頒六項國家科學技術獎

9 Janaury 2017

http://www.cpr.cuhk.edu.hk/en/press_detail.php?id=2434&t=cuhk-researchers-receive-six-state-science-and-technology-awards

The 2016 State Science and Technology Awards ceremony was held today (9 January) at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) received six awards, including one State Natural Science Award (SNSA) second-class, one State Scientific and Technological Progress Award (SSTPA) first-class, three SSTPA second-class awards as well as, for the first time, the SSTPA (Innovation Team).

The State Natural Science Award second-class award - Integrative Research on Molecular Pathogenesis, Diagnostic Biomarkers and Prevention for Colorectal Cancer

Prof. Joseph JY Sung, Vice-Chancellor and President of CUHK and Mok Hing Yiu Professor of Medicine, Prof. Jun Yu, Professor of the Department of Medicine and Therapeutics, Prof. Francis KL Chan, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Dr. William KK Wu, Assistant Professor of the Department of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care and the Institute of Digestive Diseases, and Prof. Simon SM Ng, Professor of the Department of Surgery, were honoured with the SNSA second-class award for the project entitled 'Integrative Research on Molecular Pathogenesis, Diagnostic Biomarkers and Prevention for Colorectal Cancer'.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common malignancies. The research team led by Prof. Joseph JY Sung has been investigating the epidemiology, screening, molecular pathogenesis and biomarkers of CRC for 15 years. The team has achieved several breakthroughs, including leading an Asia-Pacific working group to study the epidemiology and risk factors of CRC and formulating a guideline on CRC screening; unveiling the mutational landscape of CRC in the Chinese population and discovering new fusion genes and high-frequency mutated genes; identifying novel epigenetic alterations and signaling pathway dysregulation in CRC; and identifying novel biomarkers for non-invasive diagnosis of CRC.

2016年度國家科學技術獎勵大會今天(1月9日)於北京人民大會堂舉行,香港中文大學(中大)共獲頒六個獎項,包括一項國家自然科學獎二等獎、一項國家科學技術進步獎一等獎、三項國家科學技術進步獎二等獎,以及首次獲得的創新團隊獎。

國家自然科學獎二等獎–大腸癌發生分子機制、早期預警、防治研究

由中大校長兼莫慶堯醫學講座教授沈祖堯教授、內科及藥物治療學系教授于君教授、醫學院院長陳家亮教授、麻醉及深切治療學系和消化疾病研究所研究助理教授胡嘉麒教授,以及外科學系教授吳兆文教授組成的研究團隊,憑「大腸癌發生分子機制、早期預警、防治研究」獲頒國家自然科學獎二等獎。

大腸癌是最常見惡性腫瘤之一。研究團隊在沈祖堯教授帶領下,對大腸癌發病狀況、早期篩查、分子機制、診斷標誌物等進行了深入及有系統性的研究,歷時十五年。該項目取得一系列重要突破,包括:牽頭領導亞太區大腸癌篩查、闡明大腸癌高發率和高危因素、制定篩查指南;在國際上首次闡明華人大腸癌基因組突變圖譜、發現新的融合基因及高頻突變基因、對大腸癌發生和發展過程中的表觀遺傳修飾和信號通路進行了多層次的系統研究、揭示了新的大腸癌發生表觀遺傳學機制;在國際上首次揭示多種大腸癌無創診斷標誌物,建立大腸癌無創診斷新平台。

CUHK World's First Study Confirms A New Colorectal Cancer High Risk Group
Siblings of Affected Individuals 6 times More Likely to Have Advanced Adenoma

21 June 2016

http://www.cpr.cuhk.edu.hk/en/press_detail.php?id=2288

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) conducted the world’s first large prospective cohort study on the risk of advanced adenoma among siblings of individuals affected by this problem. Results showed that siblings of individuals with advanced adenoma were 6 times more likely to have advanced adenoma than unaffected people. Researchers advise if one of the family members has advanced adenomas, the respective siblings should consider to undergo colonoscopy to prevent colorectal cancer. The study has been published in the leading medical journal Gastroenterology.

香港中文大學(中大)進行全球首項大型前瞻性研究發現,大腸中長有「高危瘜肉」(又稱「癌前腺瘤」)的人士,他們的直系兄弟姊妹大腸內同樣長有高危瘜肉的機會,較一般人高六倍。負責研究的專家建議,只要家族中有一人長有高危瘜肉,其直系兄弟姊妹也應該考慮進行大腸鏡檢查,以預防腸癌出現。相關研究結果已於頂尖醫學期刊《腸胃學》(Gastroenterology)上發表。

CUHK’s New Prostatic Artery Embolization Shows 90% Success Rate in Relieving Symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
中大醫學院研「前列腺動脈栓塞術」治前列腺肥大9成病人經新法治療後可正常排尿

17 November 2015

http://www.cpr.cuhk.edu.hk/en/press_detail.php?1=1&1=1&id=2128

The Department of Imaging and Interventional Radiology at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has initiated a clinical study on prostatic artery embolization (PAE) since 2014 and put the new treatment into clinical trial on benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) beginning in June 2015. The preliminary result is encouraging. 90% of the patients could pass urine in 2 weeks after the treatment. The team will continue the clinical study to collect further data with the aim of providing a non-surgical treatment option for the patients in the future.

香港中文大學(中大)醫學院影像及介入放射學系於2014年起率先研究「前列腺動脈栓塞術」,並於今年6月起應用此治療方案於受良性前列腺肥大困擾之病人,初步治療成效良好,9成病人在術後2星期已可正常排尿。研究團隊將繼續進行臨床研究,期望能收集更多有關此療法的資料和數據,將來能為病人提供外科手術以外之選擇。


CUHK Introduces High Frequency Oscillations to Determine Resection Margin Increases the Effectiveness of Complex Epilepsy Surgery by around 30%
中大率先引入「高頻信號檢測」技術以確定腦部手術範圍有效提升複雜性腦癇症手術成效約三成

16 September 2015

https://www.cpr.cuhk.edu.hk/en/press_detail.php?id=2080

A study conducted by the Faculty of Medicine at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) reveals that in complex epilepsy surgery, combining intracranial electroencephalography (EEG) and high frequency oscillations (HFOs) technology can accurately determine the focal seizure origin and resection area, thereby increasing the surgical effectiveness by about 30%. The findings have been published in the Jan 2015 issue of the leading international journal Clinical Neurophysiology.

香港中文大學(中大)醫學院最新研究指出,在複雜性腦癇症手術中,結合顱內腦電圖和高頻信號檢測(high-frequency oscillations)技術,可更準確地找出癲癇症發作源頭,以確定手術切除範圍,有效提升約三成手術成效。有關研究結果已於國際期刊Clinical Neurophysiology 2015年一月號中發表。

CUHK Succeeds in Treating Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease by Implantable Pulse Generator
中大醫學院成功植入「脈衝產生器」醫治胃酸倒流

17 February 2015

http://www.cpr.cuhk.edu.hk/en/press_detail.php?id=1974

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is caused by a failure of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). Over 80% of patients require lifelong medication to help relieve the symptoms and mitigate the influence on their daily lives. During 2012-2013, The Faculty of Medicine at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) successfully implanted pulse generators in 5 patients to restore their LES function, providing a novel treatment option to patients suffering from GERD.

胃酸倒流是括約肌功能失調或退化而引起的慢性疾病,沒有根治方法,超過八成患者須長期接受藥物治療,以緩和病徵和減少其對日常生活的影響。香港中文大學(中大)醫學院率先引入嶄新技術,於2012至2013年間為5位胃酸倒流患者植入脈衝產生器,以電脈衝刺激下食道括約肌,消除反酸問題,提供治療胃酸倒流的創新醫療方案。
