 Vietnam, stem cell, high technology, achievements



Vietnam produces submarines


Vietnam has mastered the process of designing, manufacturing, assembling, operating and testing small-size submarines.


On September 21, the Hoa Binh sub was put to a test at Cam Ranh Bay at the depth of 15 meters in good weather with a slight wind, and fourth-level wave. The crew included Minister of Science and Technology Nguyen Quan.


Making nonflammable building materials from red sledge


Scientists have completed a technology to make steel and nonflammable building materials from red sludge collected during alumina production in the Central Highlands.


The initial achievements made by the scientists headed by Dr. Vu Duc Loi have been hailed as a “breakthrough” in Vietnam’s revolution in making green building materials that help protect the environment.


Success in making Rotavin-M1 vaccine


Vietnam has successfully made Rotavin-M1, a vaccine against diarrhea and put it into use on a trial basis.


Vietnam is the second country in Asia and the fourth in the world succeeding in making the vaccine.


The testing showed that the vaccine is safe for children and adults and has high quality equivalent to Rotarix, a Belgium vaccine available in Vietnam.


The vaccine can help prevent diarrhea and dangerous complications for most children under five years old. Meanwhile, it is economical with the price just equal to 1/3 of the imported product.


Vietnam receives IAEA awards


Vietnam won three out of 23 awards presented by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for its achievements in releasing mutant plant varieties and contributions to increased food security and sustainable development.


The outstanding achievement award was granted to the Vietnam Agricultural Genetics Institute, which worked with IAEA and domestic research institutions to create a number of flood-proof and high-yield rice varieties since the 1980s.



Vietnamese scientists succeed in treating cancer with stem cell technology


The Hue Central Hospital in mid 2014 organized a ceremony to congratulate a cancer patient who has been successfully treated with the progenitor hematopoietic stem cell therapy.


The patient was Le Thi Sau, 52, who was suffering ovarian cancer in the last stage.
