EDITOR'S LETTER
 

Innovations are popping up everywhere nowadays. Technology is becoming more accessible and making life easier for every generation.

We focus on medical imaging technology in APBN December issue. As we know, a low quality image affects the results of clinical diagnosis and thus may lead to incorrect choice of treatment. A Singapore-based start-up, Abyss Processing, introduces the Reflectivity software which can increase the visibility of soft tissues in images generated via ultrasound and optical coherence tomography (OCT).

Craving for more information on innovative medical imaging technologies? You could take some of your time to read the article “Scanning the Future of Medical Imaging”, and another piece about the new development on the combination of light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) and fluorescence spectroscopy. All of these interesting abovementioned articles can be found on Features section.

In Spotlights, we feature AbbVie which built its first regional manufacturing facility of API (small molecules) and biologics (large molecules) in Singapore to reach out to more patients worldwide, with the purpose of initiating their footprint in Asia. In addition, there is an informative article about the revolution of the dual mobility cup in total hip arthroplasty.

In Columns part, we report on the introduction of Akynzeo® drug in Singapore by Mundipharma, for cancer patients who are receiving chemotherapy and/or experiencing CINV (chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting). We also feature the BME IA event and introduce a few start-ups from NUS Biomedical Engineering Department.

Our print copies are available in Kinokuniya bookstore in Takashimaya. Besides, you can always find APBN’s latest issue online on www.asiabiotech.com, or follow our Facebook page @Asia Pacific Biotech News, Instagram @asiabiotech, and Twitter @asia_biotech.

This is the last APBN issue for the year 2016. Our APBN team hopes that you will have a great time while reading our December issue, and we wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Thank you.
