Toward a sustainable cord blood supply in the United States

Toward a sustainable cord blood supply in the United States

Wednesday, February 27  |  11:00 AM CST


The U.S. government began a federal cord blood program in 2005 to help create a nationwide inventory of high-quality and genetically diverse units of cord blood. However, the proportion of cord blood stem cell transplants relative to transplants using other types of stem cells - such as those from bone marrow - has been falling in recent years. Because of declining demand and increasing costs, some of the 19 public banks, which are nonprofit entities, have been struggling to make ends meet.

After more than 15 years of supporting the national cord blood system, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services asked the RAND Corporation to evaluate the economics of the system and what could be done to improve its sustainability. Kandice Kapinos, lead researcher on the study, reviews the results in this free Share the Science webinar.

Attend to learn some of the key research findings, including:

  • How the national program has affected the publicly available inventory
  • What current trends could mean for the future of the cord blood industry
  • The value of cord blood transplantation for certain populations
  • The overall value vs cost of the public bank system
