ASU and China's Sun Yat-Sen University to develop early diagnostics against colorectal cancer
Date:9/6/2011

Tempe, Ariz.-Arizona State University (ASU) and China's Sun Yat-Sen University (SYSU) have formalized a research collaboration aimed at developing early and predictive diagnostics to improve patient outcomes for colorectal cancer.

ASU's Nobel Laureate, Leland Hartwell, PhD, and Chief Scientist at the Biodesign Institute's Center for Sustainable Health, spearheaded the agreement with Dr. Jianping Wang, Director of the SYSU Gastrointestinal Institute of the Sixth Affiliated Hospital in Guangzhou, Guangdong, China.

According to Dr. Hartwell, "Recent advances in molecular technologies promise great improvements in medical care through prevention and early detection of disease. Developing these advances to the stage where they are useful in the clinic requires a systematic, dedicated, and long-term collaboration between the most advanced clinical research sites and state-of-the-art technology centers. We are optimistic that this collaboration will help advance the quality of colorectal cancer (CRC) care worldwide."

The Center for Sustainable Health (CSH) is a multi-million dollar, ASU-led partnership with a mission of improving healthcare and reducing costs through advances in diagnostics. The Sixth Affiliated Hospital (500 beds, soon to expand to 1,000 beds) is one of eight affiliated hospitals at SYSUwith a total for all hospitals of 7,500 beds.

The Sixth Affiliated GI Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University is the first GI hospital in China, focusing on treating malignant and benign gastrointestinal diseases professionally. 830 new GI cancer patients including 589 CRC were diagnosed in the hospital last year. And the number is still growing. Within SYSU and its eight affiliated hospitals, more than 2000 CRC patients are treated each year. For basic research, SYSU has 863 key laboratories, including two key national laboratories and four provincial laboratories, tissue banks, clinical databases and surveillance centers.
