NDO – Vietnamese scientists joined their colleagues from Japan and the ASEAN countries at the first Japan – ASEAN Seminar held in Kyoto, Japan, from November 5-6.

Vietnamese representatives at the event included scientists from the Hanoi Medical University, the Hanoi University of Technology, the Ho Chi Minh City University of Sciences and Can Tho University.

At the seminar, Dr. Prof. Ta Thanh Van presented the outcomes of the application of immune cells in cancer therapy in Vietnam, while Dr. Nguyen Trong Tue updated the participants on the effect of bitter tea (Ilex latifolia Thunb.) extracts on Alzheimer's disease.

The two reports by the two doctors, both from the Hanoi Medical University, were highly appreciated by the international scientists as they recognised Vietnam’s achievements and contributions to the research on fruit flies, which have been conducted under the international network on the research on the application of genetically modified fruit flies in medicine and pharmacy. Vietnam had the honour to be a member of the network.

Reports delivered at the seminar focussed on molecular immunology, the latest findings on the use of genetically modified fruit flies, stimulations of human diseases such as autism, dementia, Alzheimer’s and several other hereditary diseases, as well as biologically active substances and the effects on the molecular level of the substances.
