Quotes

"We are proud to have the support of  Prof Lui Pao Chuen as Chairman of our Board and  Associate Prof Louis Phee , Mr Jen Kwong Hwa and Mr Lu Yoh Chie as advisors to guide the company forward. We are also heartened by the early market interest from clinicians across the world expressing intent to buy the system, we hope to be able to fulfil market demand for the IMDX™ system by 2018" added Ms Florence Leong
"NUS Enterprise is delighted that Endofotonics is commercialising this NUS technology - the world's first and only endoscopic device that can provide in-vivo, real-time, objective cancer diagnosis. This IMDX(TM) system has the potential to make tremendous impact on the way cancer is managed. The fact that this launch is happening today - coinciding with InnovFest 2014 - is most timely, since InnovFest is our flagship event that encourages the translation of University research into new products and solutions that can make this world a better place" said Dr Lily Chan, CEO NUS Enterprise
"High-risk patients with peptic ulcer bleeding would benefit from this more intense therapy. High-risk patients can be defined as those with Rockall scores of 6 or greater, which includes those with underlying comorbid illness and/or with stigmata of recent hemorrhage disclosed during upper gastrointestinal endoscopy" said principal investigator Professor Bor-Shyang Sheu of National Cheng Kung University Hospital, in Tainan, Taiwan, in an email to Reuters Health
He added there were indeed flaws with the process, since the hospital could not demand all patients show their IDs when retrieving medical reports. "Elderly people cannot come to get the reports by themselves; and the simplified process was meant to save trouble" he said
