Former Director of Hematology-Oncology at Schneider Children's Medical Center of Israel receives Israel Prize for Medical Research
 
By Cynthia Bar-Mor

Prof. Rina Zaizov Marx, a brilliant scientist, and an outstanding physician endowed with the highest standards of skill, compassion and virtue, laid the foundations for Pediatric Oncology in Israel and was the first director of the Hematology-Oncology Department at Schneider Children’s Medical Center of Israel.  



She serves as the Chief Consultant for Pediatric Hematology Oncology at Clalit Health Service, and is the Incumbent of the Josefina Maus and Gabriela Caserman Mause, Chair in Pediatric Hematology-Oncology, Sackler School of Medicine, Tel Aviv University.  
Prof. Zaizov Marx is an exemplary researcher of international renown, who spearheaded new protocols in the treatment of childhood cancer.  

Following her specialization as a Pediatric Oncologist in the United States in 1959, Prof. Zaizov Marx introduced the specialty in Israel. By 1973, her department had evolved into a national center for children with malignant diseases, and with the opening of the Bone Marrow Transplantation Unit at Schneider Children’s, the department became the largest center in the country for the treatment of children with cancer. The National Referral Center, which she headed with distinguished and sensitive leadership, was blessed with vast knowledge providing the most advanced treatment available in the world. 

ADVANCED THERAPEUTIC APPROACHES

Prof. Zaizov Marx determined the method of treatment in the department, inculcated progressive approaches, conducted research and served as consultant to Pediatric Oncology departments throughout the world. She introduced the concept of “Curative Intent” and drastically changed thinking patterns of many physicians in the country when she presented her findings on the treatment of Leukemia by chemotherapy. Doctors understood for the first time that it was possible to cure Leukemia.
 

The idea of “Total Care” was another of Prof. Zaizov Marx’s brainstorms, whereby the provision of comprehensive treatment played a decisive role not only in medical care, but also in supportive emotional care of both the child and his family. 

Prof. Zaizov Marx placed special emphasis on the development of advanced therapies that had a greater success rate with fewer side effects. She worked intensively to formulate new protocols, which were widely publicized among oncologists around the globe and adopted by many other institutions. In addition, she founded the Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Society in Israel. Prof. Zaizov Marx indisputably transformed the profession into a specialized and organized discipline. 

LEADING RESEARCHER

Prof. Zaizov Marx’s significant achievements were accompanied by extensive efforts in auxiliary research and diagnostic laboratories, which she established. The accurate diagnosis of the type of cancerous tumor represented the first stage in precise treatment and the reduction of difficult side effects. Her investigative studies led her to write more than 180 professional papers, contributing mainly to the field of Hematology in Newborns, Alpha Thalessemia, Gaucher’s Disease, childhood malignancies and more. Her research was published in top medical journals and magazines and at medical conferences, and largely influenced the improvement in therapeutic techniques for the treatment of devastating and rare complex diseases. During the course of her career, Prof. Zaizov Marx was bestowed the title of Professor in Pediatrics by the Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University. 

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Alongside development of her academic and scientific skills, Prof. Zaizov Marx fostered community outreach through the strengthening of ties between the medical team, the patients and their families, and the community. Towards this end, she founded a public association of parents of sick children called “Amutat Chaim”, which has become an integral element in the treatment of children. 

Within the framework of her activities on behalf of the Israel Cancer Society, Prof. Zaizov Marx established national workshops for the study of oncology and also for the exposure and review of research achievements in the field. 

Special mention must be made of Prof. Zaizov Marx’s humanitarian attributes of concern and fortitude. She dedicated herself to her work and to every medical, emotional and social problem of her patients throughout every hour of the day. There can be no doubt that through her personal example to her staff, the success of treatment in the department places her among the foremost practitioners in the world. 

“Professor Zaizov Marx is the Lord clothed in white, standing at the head of a team of white angels,” said Israeli actress, Gila Almagor, herself an Israel Prize laureate. 

Schneider Children’s Medical Center of Israel is indelibly proud of Prof. Zaizov Marx’s outstanding accomplishments, which represent the highest standards of medical excellence and human compassion.
