Results and Impact

Since October 2019, Hopital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, under the direction of Dr. Isabelle Fleury, has developed a new treatment option for patients with blood cancer. The treatment uses CAR-T cell therapy, which modifies specific cells and enables them to destroy the cancer. Currently, the treatment is only available to certain groups of patients who do not respond to traditional therapies. Over the years, Fondation de l’Hopital Maisonneuve-Rosemont has provided the research team with more than $100,000 to develop the CART-T cell treatment.

While Charity Intelligence highlights these key results, they may not be a complete representation of Fondation de l’Hopital Maisonneuve-Rosemont's results.
