Test... The National Cord Blood Program has provided about one-third of the world's transplants of unrelated cord blood, providing the most extensive data available on factors that influence the clinical outcome of cord blood transplantation in children and adults. Results of this research have been published in several leading medical journals (to browse a list of publications, visit the News & Articles section).

Current Collaborations included:

  1. With IBMTR - a comparison of unrelated cord blood and bone marrow transplants in children.
  2. With IBMTR - a comparison of unrelated cord blood transplants in adults.
  3. With ViaCell - a clinical study of the safetly of growing cells to expand the number of stem cells.
  4. With Gamedcyte - a clinical study of the safetly of growing cells to expand the number of stem cells.
  5. With Several transplant centers - strategies to overcome the limits of the small cell dose available for adults.
