This registry, launched in September 2017 under the leadership of Dr. Isabelle Fleury, hematologist and medical oncologist at HMR-CIUSSS, 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.

“We are extremely pleased with the participation of Gilead Sciences Canada in this project” said Dr Isabelle Fleury and Francois Bettez, Chief Executive Officer of C3i. “This is a clear commitment to support this important initiative that will help improving the care of the patients. We thank Dr. Fleury for her exceptional involvement in this registry, the CIUSSS-EMTL as well as our partners for participating in the development of the Lymphoma registry” said Francois Bettez

“Engaging with healthcare practitioners and organizations is critical to Gilead’s efforts in advancing the treatment of life-threatening diseases in areas of unmet medical need.” said Kennet Brysting, Vice President and General Manager at Gilead Sciences Canada, Inc. “This registry is an innovative and necessary step towards improving the care and outcomes of people living with lymphomas and will surely provide valuable insights into this life-threatening illness. We are pleased to support HMR in this initiative and are privileged to have been considered to support their great work.”
