證免疫細胞由腦指揮 麥德華 (WYK '62) 破解170年謎團

加拿大星島日報

老驥伏櫪,志在千里。今年73歲的國際知名癌細胞和免疫學專家麥德華博士(Dr. Tak Wah Mak),在免疫學上又再取得新的突破,發現免疫細胞受腦部指揮;獲加拿大總督帕耶特(Julie Payette)在今年6月下旬,頒發加拿大醫療研究中心(Canadian Institutes of HealthResearch, CIHR)的金葉獎(Gold Leaf Prize),表揚他在醫學上的新發現。

麥德華表示:「兩、三年前會覺得發現T細胞受體(T-cell Receptor),是一生中最值得自豪;但今日找到腦部與免疫細胞有關連,證實免疫細胞是由腦部指揮工作,終於破解了醫學上170年的謎團,才是個人更大的成就。」
德國科學家Rudolf Wagner在1849年,無意中發現一條腦神經連接到免疫細胞,但直到170年後,麥德華領導的研究小組,才發現免疫細胞可以製造神經元。事實上,1960年已經有兩名科學家,發現免疫細胞中有神經元,但當時覺得兩者就像是將電線放在粥內。

Lee Wai Nang 

Dear Wai Hon,
As Wah Yan Class of 1962 schoolmates, we are all much shocked and saddened to hear the most tragic news on Wai Nang's passing.
Many thanks for the very well-written, interesting and enlightening article "Stories of the Four Brothers" which let us belatedly know more about our schoolmate now in God's embrace. May he rest in eternal peace in Heaven.
Please accept Wah Yan class of 62s' collective heartfelt sympathies and condolences on behalf of all members of the Lee family and his daughter for such a sad lost of a dear one.
Take care, good health and God bless,
Alex Mak (WYK62)

Dear all,
We had another joyful gathering on Tue 12 June which will be our last before our usual Summer break until restarting in September. All thanks to David Koo who organised the venue plus the Menu etc and as usual, kudos to Michael for the wines and cake as June "happens" to be the Birthday month for yours truly and Ho Pak Lee. We are so thankful and blessed to have so many over-half-a-century dear old friends to celebrate it with us - you simply cannot ask for more!
You can see it was yet another joyful and successful gathering from the photos taken! 
Happy viewing and all the best to you and family for a most enjoyable Summer to come.
With warmest regards,
Alex

Dear all,
April found the WYK62 HK chapter having a dinner gathering at Li Yue Mun for a seafood dinner. We were very happy to be able to enjoy the rare company of Albert & Yvonne Young who happened to be visiting HK at the time. Unfortunately, Dunson Cheng, who was also in town then, came down with the flu and had to cry off at the last minute - ditto Michael & Tracy Leung.
Kudos should be handed to - Henry Leung, whose connection at the venue plus his careful planning of the sumptuous menu of lip smacking goodies more than enhance the happy occasion. Not forgetting our very generous Michael, who, even though cannot attend, still provided the excellent wines, red & white, the glorious cake as well as transportation plus driver for 4 passenger, much much appreciated. Bravo & well done to both of you !
So, the 19 of us had a great time, as usual, and there are 32
photos in three batches to prove it ! Happy viewing,
Alex
P.S. Thanks also due to Poon Lai-yeung, who although not present, still helped by performing the editing of the finished pictures - much appreciated LY, thanks again !

Bernard Yau Yu-kwong (62)

Dear all,
At our dinner gathering last night, March 15, the originator of this news revealed "inadvertently" that our beloved classmate Bernard Yau Yu-kwong 邱宇光 "沙田柚" [with whom many hours of sandy pitch football was happily spent] had passed away 2-3 years ago due to contracting a deadly flu virus at that time while transiting Hong Kong on his way somewhere else. Apparently it only took 3 days from start to finish; it was so deadly.
Therefore, SADLY, it is that time again - please see my AMENDED FILES ATTACHED.
Bernard - belatedly and with apologies, we all grief & commemorate your passing and I take solace in the thought that you are now resting in eternal peace in God's embrace !!!
With brimming eyes, from one of your sandy pitch soccer mates,
Alex
P.S. As the inadvertent revealor of this information so correctly remarked - he is under no obligation to keep me (or any WYK62) informed.

Dear all,

The much awaited 28 Nov WYK62 Dinner event last Tuesday at the Moon Koon Restaurant of the Happy Valley Race course building was a complete success with everything going according to plan.
How can anyone not be happy, especially those who were fed all night by generous host Michael Leung's magnum-size bottles of vintage French red wine from Chateau Montrose (1996/98) ?
Here are the photos to prove it !!! Happy viewing !
Best regards,
Alex

《Fr. Aloysius Tseng, S.J. (WYK;1959-1960;1966-1967)》__ Li Labbon

   

Father Gerald Aloysius Tseng (曾順年神父) was my Form 3C Form Master in 1959 to 1960. He was then 30 years old and was still a Jesuit scholastic. He was ordained priest in Dublin on 31st July, 1963.
He is now 88 years old but is still in good health. He is living in retirement, but is still active in St. Ignatius Church in Singapore.
The photographs were only recently taken..
I made it a habit of going to Singapore to visit him at least once a year. He was very kind to me when I was in Form 3C.
I am still going to St. Ignatius Chapel at Kowloon Wah Yan every Sunday for the 9:00am Mass.
The Pastor is now Father Thomas Leung (梁宗溢神父) of WYHK64 Class..

Dear all,
James Li and I had agreed to have lunch on Monday 18 Sep at 上環梨花苑韓國料理. However, maybe due to force of habit, I made additional phone calls and James did too.
The resultant happy gathering is what you see in the attached photo.
Cheers,
Alex
