April 29, 2013 Group News

A 4-year-old boy was treated for Blackfan-Diamond anaemia (BDA) with a stem cell transplant from his sister’s umbilical cord blood. The transplant was performed on April 25 at the Hospital del Niño Jesús in Madrid, one of the most important paediatric hospitals in Spain. It is the first transplant performed in this country to treat BDA with a cryo-preserved sample from a family bank, in this case, the leading Family Stem Cell Bank in Spain, Crio-Cord, a subsidiary of the Cryo-Save Group. This treatment was provided thanks to the Cryo-Save Cost Free Donation Program, which provides free storage of the umbilical cord blood and cord tissue stem cells for families who have a family member diagnosed with a disease treatable with stem cells.
