Daewoong Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (President Jong Wook Lee) held the 5th Global Ursa Forum for two days on the 10th and the 11th at Sejong Hotel in Myeong-dong, Seoul with about 60 medical specialists from China.
Celebrating its 5th anniversary this year, the Global Ursa Forum is an annual event held to introduce to the world Ursa's clinical value and the medical excellence of Korea. The event invited Professor Sang Hyup Lee of Seoul National University Hospital and Professor Sang Hoon Ahn of Yonsei Severance Hospital along with about 60 medical specialists from China to discuss the various efficacies of Ursa.
The medical specialists of Korea and China spoke for the forum to share the clinical studies of Ursa for the liver, gall bladder, and pancreas diseases of each country.
Professor Sang Hyup Lee of Seoul National University Hospital's Department of Digestive Medicine presented about 'Ursa's outstanding effect for dissolving and preventing the gallstone', while Professor Sun Wenbing of Capital Medical University's Department of Liver and Gall Bladder talked about 'Ursa's expected effect on the surgical treatment of cholelithiasis and prevention of gallstone after surgery'. Also, Professor Sang Hoon Ahn of Yonsei Severance Hospital's Department of Digestive Medicine spoke about 'The latest cases of treatment of chronic viral hepatitis and Ursa's efficacies', while Professor Feng Yanhong of Nanjing 2nd People's Hospital's Department of Digestive Medicine spoke about 'The diagnosis and treatment of cholestatic liver disease and Ursa's efficacies'.
"Many overseas specialists specialized in the digestive tract are applying for training in Korea through the annual Global Ursa Forum," said Professor Sang Hyup Lee. "It is a great opportunity to academically exchange with many global specialists and introduce Korea's medical excellence to the world."
"The viral hepatitis requires both antiviral treatment and the repair of hepatic functions to prevent the aging and degeneration of liver," said Professor Sang Hoon Ahn. "I hope that the multinational clinical study of hepatic treatment for the vital hepatitis with the medical specialists specialized in the digestive tract can expand the indication of efficacies."
"Ursa is being exported to about 10 countries, including China, Vietnam, and the Philippines, and we are planning to expand the market to Australia, Europe, and USA," said President Jong Wook Lee of Daewoong Pharmaceutical. "Ursa was launched in China in 2009 and has successfully been approved by all major cities in China to contribute to the academic exchanges between Korea and China and the explosive increase in sales through global clinical studies and marketing."
