MEDICAL ADVISORY BOARD MEMBERS
Prof. Reuven Or, MD
Professor of Medicine, Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center, Jerusalem, Israel
Director, Department of Bone Marrow Transplantation and Cancer Immunotherapy.
Medical manager, Israel Bone Marrow Donors Registry and The Umbilical Cord Blood Bank
Professor Or is a pioneer in bone marrow transplant procedures. His team was one of the first to discover bone marrow transplantation’s efficacy was due to an effective immune response of the donor immune cells against host tumors, rather than due to the chemotherapy conditioning found that these transplanted immune cells were able to eliminate the last tumor cells from the body of the transplant recipient more effectively than toxic reagents. Prof. Or believes, based on his experience, that immunotherapy has the best potential to cure cancer, better than radiation and chemotherapy.
