Then, Xu Weiwei, office director of the ISRMWR made an introduction of the society including its mission, development and achievements, and also detailed the public welfare undertakings of MEBO regenerative technology have involved in in recent years. She stressed that in July 2017, MEBO International officially launched the UN Every Woman Every Child Life Regeneration Action in Malaysia, which was supported by Malaysian governments, Chinese Embassy in Malaysia, Malaysia-China Friendship Association and other organizations. In recent years, the project has been contributing to the health improvement of women and children in Malaysia.

Dr. Glenn Genuino, President of Philippine Burn Association reported his experience in applying the regenerative medicine over the years. His wonderful speech won the unanimous praise of the attendees. Since 2009, Dr. Glenn Genuino has started to introduce his clinical experience of applying regenerative medicine in Philippine in various international academic platforms. And also under
his support, Philippines General Hospital has included the regenerative medical technology for burns as one of the three good clinical practices for the treatment of burns in Philippine more than ten years ago. In recent years, the technology is expanded to the field of wound care. And soon the technology will become the good clinical practice in some wound care centers such as St. Luke in
At the end, Dr. Wong Kee Ai from Sarawak General Hospital presented some typical cases of patients with surgical wounds, pressure ulcers, necrotizing fasciitis and etc. She emphasized that wound care requires a good regenerative environment to promote the self-repair of the body, which is the characteristic strength of MEBO, and she added that MEBO technology and products have the unique effect in accelerating the drainage of necrotic tissues and promoting the proliferation and division of epithelial cells.
Through exchanges with doctors present in the Conference, we learned that there is still no dedicated wound care wards in the hospital in Malaysia. The wound care is a part of orthopedics, and wound treatment can only be carried out in outpatient service or other specialized wards. Therefore, the wound care centers and other facilities are still under preparation, which is one of the key projects supported by the Ministry of Health of Malaysia. To take this opportunity, MEBO Malaysia Co., Ltd. will continue to promote the local marketing development, with the clinical application as the basis, academic promotion as the mission, expert training as the focus and public welfare activities as the driving force, and be committed to culturing the academic pacemakers and spokesmen in the local wound management field, in hopes of benefiting more Malaysians with the regenerative medicine in the near future.
