MEBO International will develop a training program for doctors, nurses, and scholars to learn Moist Exposed Burn Therapy (MEBT) and bring the technique to all provinces of China. MEBO International will partner with the China Association of Integrative Medicine (CAIM) Burns Committee, a national academic organization that works closely with the Ministry of Health, to help identify trainers in each province to deliver MEBT training sessions. This program will be led by a MEBO regenerative life committee, consisting of six clinical surgeons who are the most experienced in MEBT, and account for at least ten years of experience in MEBT practice. These doctors will serve as regional instructors, dictate the schedule and contents of the training sessions, and advise and direct regional instructors to assure the quality of training. The program will include 500 training sessions, will be free of charge, and sets out to train a total of 20,000 people.
MEBO International and the CAIM Burns Committee will identify one clinical experts in each of Chinas 30 provinces to serve as training instructor. Each expert will hold one to two sessions every a month in the province he/she works in, totaling to 30 to 60 sessions nationwide each month, with the hope of achieving 125 sessions and a minimum of 5,000 people trained per quarter. The sessions will include theory, technique, and case demonstration. Trainees will mainly come from but not limited to the hospitals in the region the session to be held. Sessions will be held in various venuesfrom hospitals to clinics, schools, and pharmaciesin almost every province across China.
This commitment also hopes to collect information and feedback on the sessions, including the quantitative information regarding the progress of trainees and the results of evaluations that will be held at the end of each session.
These sessions have been designed to prepare doctors with the knowledge of MEBT and to make them aware of the potential for this technique to be expanded globally. This commitment has been designed to bring attention to the potential for human organ regeneration, and to commemorate Dr. Xu and pass his legacy of saving people from pain and suffering on to future generations.
In the May 2015, MEBO International tested class sizes and channels through which to encourage enrollment. A total 2,508 trainees took part in 47 sessions held in Shanxi, Beijing, Guangxi, Yunnan, Anhui, Jiangsu, Shandong, Hebei, Neimenggu, Hubei, Zhejiang, Shanghai, Jiangxi, with 53 person each session on average. This pilot led to the decision to hold 125 training sessions per quarter with an average of 40 trainees per session, resulting to a minimum of 5,000 people trained per quarter and 20,000 in total.
The sessions will be held in Beijing, Tianjin, Chongqing, Heilongjiang, Jilin, Liaoning, Shandong, Hebei, Henan, Jiangsu, Anhui, Jiangxi, Zhejiang, Fujian, Hubei, Shanxi, Hunan, Guangdong, Hainan, Yunnan, Sichuan, Shanxi, Guizhou, Gansu, Guangxi, Neimenggu, Xinjiang, and Qinghai.
Q4 2015: set up the functional website of MEBO regenerative life clinical committee with agenda and expert profiling system. The annual plan of detailed information about the location and time of each session in each province will be released in advance every quarter.
Q1 2016: 125 sessions
Q2 2016: 125 sessions
Q3 2016: 125 sessions
Q4 2016: 125 sessions
Burns are a global public health problem, which the WHO estimates accounts for approximately 265,000 deaths annually. The majority of these occur in low- and middle-income countries and almost half occur in the South-East Asia Region. Burns are among the leading causes of disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) lost in low- and middle-income countries. In 2004, nearly 11 million people worldwide were burned severely enough to require medical attention (World Health Organization).
MEBO International, founded by Dr. Rongxiang Xu, is a private enterprise engaged in life science established in 1987. Dr. Xu established a revolutionary regenerative treatment for burns called Moist Exposed Burn Therapy (MEBT). MEBT is a therapeutic procedure based on the moist environment of the wound, and uses an ointment that enhances in situ regeneration. Since MEBTs conception, only 200,000 Chinese doctors have been trained on this technique and 15,000 hospitals have incorporated the therapy. Capable of skin regeneration, pain relief, anti-infection and scarless healing, MEBT addresses the challenges that have been impeding the development of burn treatment. MEBT has proven to alleviate suffering and improve patients quality of health and life, dramatically reducing morbidity and mortality of burn patients.
In the early 1990s, the Chinese Ministry of Health popularized MEBT in rural and suburban areas. Yet, most urban doctors are not fully aware of the MEBT.
MEBTs potential for further organ regeneration in the human body led to the creation of Human Body Regenerative Restoration Science (HBRRS). The clinical application of HBRRS led to the expansion of MEBT to a more general Moist Exposed Therapy, not limited to burns, and has now been included in Chinese college medical textbooks.
