Cryo-Save facilitates the first transplantation in Spain to treat blackfan-diamond anaemia thanks to the cost-free donation program

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.

New freezing procedure increases availability of cord blood stem cell transplants for patients

February 7, 2013 Group News

A large enough number of stem cells are needed to ensure the success of a cord blood transplant. However, the quantity of stem cells isolated from umbilical cord blood is not always sufficient to meet that requirement. Researchers from the Etablissement Français du Sang, Aquitaine-Limousin (France) have established a method to multiply cord blood stem cells to required quantity levels. In the current study Dr. Ivanovic and co-workers (Etablissement Français du Sang Aquitaine-Limousin) and a team of Cryo-Save researchers have demonstrated that these cultured stem cells can be frozen and thawed without negatively affecting the quality of the stem cells. An important step towards successful stem cell transplants in patients for whom too few stem cells are available.
