Outside the immediate clinical context, therefore, the issues associated with cord blood banking are far broader than those suggested by the RCOG in this report. Overall, the RCOG paper is of value in that it provides some guidance in this topical area to health professionals working in the perinatal field.
Since 1996, UK cord blood banking of haemopoietic stem cells (HSC) from umbilical cord blood has been undertaken largely by NHS facilities within the National Blood Service (NBS), funded initially through research and development funding 1,2 and currently through the Department of Health.

CBR is advancing stem cell research by partnering with leading research institutions to establish FDA-regulated clinical trials, requiring CBR processed cord blood. 73% of the stem cell units CBR have released have been used for experimental regenerative therapies. More than any other cord blood storage facility in the world.Learn More
The bank may also use the donated cord blood for research. Private (commercial) cord banks will store the donated blood for use by the donor and family members only. They can be expensive.Learn More
Cord tissue use is still in early research stages, and there is no guarantee that treatments using cord tissue will be available in the future. Cord tissue is stored whole. Additional processing prior to use will be required to extract and prepare any of the multiple cell types from cryopreserved cord tissue.Learn More
Today's Treatments. Tomorrow's Breakthroughs. The power and potential of umbilical cord stem cells. Your baby's umbilical cord is a rich source of cells including hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) found in the cord blood and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) found in the cord tissue.These stem cells are unique cells that have the ability to help repair and heal the body.Learn More
Introduction According to Cordlife, 2013, Cordlife Group Limited is a leading service provider of stem cell banking from cord blood and the umbilical cord, who currently owned and operates two stem cell banks with full processing and cryopreservation storage facilities in Singapore and Hong Kong and having affiliates who are operating in India, Indonesia and the Philippines.Learn More
While cord blood banking is the least invasive procedure, and provides the most adaptable HSCs, there isn’t as much research on umbilical cord cells. Research is positive, but doctors still have a lot to learn about treatment and storage of cord blood stem cells.Learn More
The debate over whether umbilical cord blood should be stored and why public banking facilities are preferred over those that are private have also been discussed in this paper.Learn More
Cord blood (CB) provides a source of haemopoietic stem cells (HSC), as detailed in Chapter 5. CB is used for the equivalent of bone marrow transplantation (BMT), which was developed during the 1970s. 1 During the 1990s, peripheral blood stem cells (PBSCs) emerged as an alternative source of HSC. This requires mobilisation of the donor's HSC from the BM to the blood by the administration of.Learn More
Umbilical cord blood (UCB) has become the focus of intense efforts to collect, screen and bank haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) in hundreds of repositories around the world. UCB banking has developed through a broad spectrum of overlapping banking practices, sectors and institutional forms. Superficially at least, these sectors have been widely distinguished in bioethical and policy literature.Learn More
