Cord Blood Banking – interesting paper on this topic

Many times I hear the question – what about banking our childs cord blood.

 

Here you can find interesting paper on this topic.

 

One quote:

Thus, of more than 355,000 CBU stored in these large 2 banks, 77 CBUs were used for established indications for allogeneic HCT (about 1/4610, or 0.06%) but only 7 units (<1/50,000, or 0.0002) were actually released for autologous HCT, the primary stated goal of these banks. In comparison, the international NETCORD had 6,251 CBU releases of an inventory of 114,546 units (5.4%) for allogeneic HCT done for standard indications”
