BEIJING - A total of 85 Chinese research findings in medical and health field have received the country's most authoritative scientific awards for their inventions in the field, Chinese Medical Association (CMA) announced on Sunday.

The Chinese Medical and Technology Award, approved by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Science and Technology in 2001 and set up by the CMA, was the highest annual award in the medical and health field.

Among the eight first prize winners was a mini-invasive treatment research and its clinical application for fracture, which will be qualified to pursue higher prizes such as the national awards for natural science or technological invention.

Twenty-five findings including the application of proteome in the treatment of some critical illness packaged the second prize, with the rest being awarded the third prize.

The establishment of the award aims to strengthen scientific and technological innovation capacity and bring more technology benefits to the people. To date, 943 achievements in the field have won the title.
