Osteosarcoma is a common primary malignant bone tumour afflicting children and adolescents. Thanks to Mr. Law Sau Fai’s generous support, our team has succeeded in developing an innovative targeted delivery system for treating the disease. In the experiments using a mouse model, the malignancy is effectively inhibited. We will proceed to apply this finding to tumour treatment.

Professor Ken K.L. Yung Director of Golden Meditech Centre for NeuroRegeneration Sciences, and Professor of Department of Biology of HKBU

With populations around the world ageing, it is predicted that the number of patients suffering from neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s will rise dramatically, posing an increasingly serious threat to public health. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to Mr. Kam Yuen, Founder of Golden Meditech Holdings Limited, for his generous support for the establishment of the Golden Meditech Centre for NeuroRegeneration Sciences. The Centre will conduct in-depth research related to autologous neural stem cell therapy and other cell therapies that can potentially treat neurodegenerative and other diseases that are presently incurable.
