International Cord Blood Registries

  • Bone Marrow Donors Worldwide: Despite the name, both bone marrow and cord blood registries are included. Members can search look-up tables of HLA types. Most of the world's registries for bone marrow and cord blood can be found from the BMDW website:
  • NETCORD is an international consortium of 15 cord blood banks (as of Aug2004), located mostly in Europe but also including Tokyo and the NY Blood Center. Their registry can be searched by physicians.
  • AsiaCORD is an Asian consortium modeled on NETCORD. The purpose of AsiaCORD is to promote a pan-Asian supply of cord blood units, because of the higher frequency of HLA matching within Asian populations. To realize this, a major requirement is establishment of international standards of cord blood banking. AsiaCORD is developing cord blood standards based on the American Association of Blood Bank standards, and will apply them overriding national stnadards of the participating countries.
  • Caitlin Raymond International Registry , operated by the mother of Caitlin Raymond, works as a clearinghouse for patients seeking stem cell donors. They post a list of international cord blood registries .
  • Information Centers:
    • IBMTR & ABMTR stands for International Bone Marrow Transplant Registry & Autologous Blood and Marrow Transplant Registry. They are not donor registries. They are a collaboration of clinical scientists who study the outcome of allogenic (IBMTR) and autologous (ABMTR) transplants at numerous institutions. The IBMTR/ABMTR Statistical Center is a division of the Health Policy Institute of the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI. In July 2004 it was renamed "Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR)" .
    • The European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) is a non-profit established in 1974 to promote co-operation amongst scientists and physicians involved in clinical stem cell transplantation. The EBMT covers all types of stem cell transplantation and all aspects of the process, including including basic and clinical research, education, standardisation, quality control, and accreditation for transplant procedures.

You must review expert opinions on the medical benefits of storing these Umbilical Cord Blood cells today for potential use in the future. Stem cells are extremely versatile, all-purpose cells that can mature into specialized cells and tissue throughout the human body. More than 20 years ago, the discovery that stem cells could be recovered from sources such as the left-over Blood in the umbilical cord and placenta held out great hope that we would be able to harness the lifesaving usefulness of these cells in different clinical applications. Umbilical Cord Blood stem cells have been successfully used in appx. 5,000 transplants and there is tremendous hope that these cells can be used in a broader number of indications going forward.
