    Evidence-based medicine to be used in Canada as a device to fund or not to fund interventions, therapies, devices etc. Subjective crapshoot but is what it is. The logic is you can basically never be wrong or right just what you want to believe based on the “evidence”.

    IS THERE A POSSIBILITY OF TRIAL STUDIES IN CANADA. WE HAVE DESPARATE PATIENTS WITH CANCER THAT WANT TO LIVE TO SEE THERE CHILDREN GROW UP. THEY HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE.

    Government needs to provide these treatments for Canadian people. They have the money to pay for everyone. All they need to do is STOP giving away our money to other countries. Help our own people. Get their priorities straight.

    Thank you for this easy to understand article. Your article was easy to read and understand. From a patient with a 3rd relapsed NHL I thank you for this. I may or may not qualify for this treatment but I now have a good understanding of how it works and the complications which may occur. Thank you Dafna and Andreas for all your hard work in being able to provide this article.
