Montreal, December 16, 2021 — The C3i Center (C3i) is proud to announce the participation of AstraZeneca Canada (AstraZeneca) in supporting the development of the Lymphoma Registry. This state of the art registry, launched in September 2017 under the leadership of Dr. Isabelle Fleury, hematologist and medical oncologist at Institut universitaire d’hématologie-oncologie-thérapie cellulaire (IUHOTC) at Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux de l’Est-de-l’Île-de-Montréal (CIUSSS-EMTL) / Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (HMR), is the basis to conduct Real World Evidence (RWE) studies in lymphoproliferative disorders in order to capture specific clinical patterns and provide unique insight in the outcomes of patients treated outside of clinical trials.
“C3i is delighted with the success of the Lymphoma Registry and thankful to receive AstraZeneca’s support on this very important project which facilitates market access of innovative therapies” said Louisa Petropoulos, Chief Executive Officer of C3i.
“Partnerships with leading research institutions are important to AstraZeneca as a collaborative approach to better understand and help address unmet medical needs throughout the patient journey,” said Mark Sims, Vice President and Head of Oncology at AstraZeneca Canada. “We are thrilled to work together with Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, Dr. Isabelle Fleury and industry partners on C3i’s Lymphoma Registry to obtain a deeper understanding of lymphoproliferative disorders and uncover valuable insights from the real-world setting that can lead to the solutions most needed by these patients.”
“The field of therapeutic options for lymphoma is rapidly expanding. The Lymphoma Registry offers a unique insight into the management of patients with lymphoma and provides real-world data on the implementation of these new therapies in a broader and more representative population. We are grateful that AstraZeneca support our initiative to improve the care to patients with lymphoma,” said Dr. Fleury.
We would like to thank all the lymphoma patients who have agreed to participate in this registry, Dr. Fleury for her exceptional involvement in this registry, CIUSSS-EMTL / Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont as well as our partners for participating in the development of the Lymphoma Registry.
