Cellular and tissue therapy
Healing, one cell at a time
INNOVATION AND EXCELLENCE IN HEALTHCARE: that’s the vision of Héma-Québec. The mission of the Héma-Québec Foundation? To give Héma-Québec the resources to INNOVATE AND EXCEL.
That is why we are currently raising funds to allow Héma-Québec to undertake Phase I of a major cellular and tissue therapy project that will impact the lives of hundreds of sick people as early as 2015.
Cellular and tissue therapies enable the replacement or regeneration of damaged and infected cells with healthy, functional cells. They have numerous applications, and touch on many different pathologies:
- Skin cultures for burn victims and the severely wounded
- Cornea cultures
- Use of stem cells for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, congestive heart failure and diabetes
- Treatment of leukemia through cord blood transplants
This innovative project will contribute, in as little as three years, to the recovery of hundreds of patients of all ages. Please make a gift now.
