Report examines blood banking services for cord blood

Research And Markets : 08 January, 2014  (New Product)
Forecasts to 2019 included in report on cord blood, a rich source of stem cells used in the treatment of leukemia and other diseases
Report examines blood banking services for cord blood


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Cord Blood Banking Services Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering.



Cord blood can be stored in two ways, banking in private cord blood banks or donating in public cord blood banks. Private cord blood banks collect and store cord blood for the use of baby and close family members only. Collection and storage of the cord blood is charged to the parents of the baby. The cord blood can also be donated to a public bank where the cord blood unit is stored and is publicly available for the suitable match. All the charges of storage and maintenance of the cord blood unit obtained from public bank are taken from the patient or patient's family for whom the unit is going to utilize in transplantation process. Though globally the number of private cord blood banks are more as compared to public banks, number of units stored in public banks are more than units of cord blood banks stored in private banks globally.



The amount of stem cells required for the transplantation process vary depending on person's weight and age. The major disadvantage of cord blood storing in private cord blood bank is that the single unit of the cord blood contains insufficient amount of stem cells and becomes difficult to treat adults using stem cell transplant. On the other hand, cord blood units stored in public banks is available to any patient matching with the blood unit sample stored in public banks globally. And hence multiple units can be utilized for single patient to meet the requirement of the stem cells in transplantation procedure.



Taking inability of the privately stored cord blood units to meet the requirement of the amount of stem cell into consideration healthcare professionals are focusing on enhancing cord blood inventory in public banks so that demand for the cord blood units can be matched. Gynecologists, pediatricians and obstetricians recommend to store cord blood in private banks only if the family has history of the disease that can be treated using stem cells.
