Acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease— newfound hope for treatment
September 12, 2019 - Researchers at The Ottawa Hospital are working together to help prevent and treat acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease.
The promise of CAR-T therapy for cancer: meta-analysis shows the big picture
August 14, 2019 - CAR-T therapy, which uses a patient’s own genetically modified immune cells, is one of the most exciting advances in cancer treatment. To get a big picture view of the field, Drs. Manoj Lalu and Dean Fergusson led a team that analyzed data from nearl
Autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation recommended as a standard of care for certain kinds of MS in the U.S.
March 13, 2019 - The American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation has recommended that stem cell transplantation for MS, which has been pioneered at The Ottawa Hospital, be considered a “standard of care, clinical evidence available” for people with certain
