New Studies Using Cord Blood For Cancer Treatment

The University of Pittsburgh’s Cancer Institute and Allegheny General Hospital’s heart center are starting to sign up patients for test studies that will significantly increase research studies.

The University has joined a group of cancer centers in Europe and Israel for a study assessing the safety and success of using a derivative of umbilical stem cells to treat blood cancers, including leukemia and lymphoma.

A new product called StemEx would be used instead of bone marrow transplants, which researchers believe and are trying to prove it is easier to match umbilical cord blood to a patient than bone marrow.
