Abstract

Cord blood (CB) transplantation has expanded the ability of the transplantation community to meet the growing needs of their patients. Clinical data over the last decade show promising results in CB transplantation using blood from related as well as unrelated donors. Basic science continues to look for ways to expand the quality and quantity of CB. CB banks are now established around the world, with major efforts to standardize banking to facilitate regulation, collection, processing, and distribution as a way of providing the highest-quality CB for patient use. This review article discusses the current status of CB transplantation and banking in the United States and Europe.
