Related Donor Cord Blood Bank for families with medical indications
The first cord blood transplantation was performed in 1988. The boy who received a graft from his sister’s cord blood to treat his Fanconi anaemia is a healthy grown man today. Due to the success of this transplantation, related donor banks are founded alongside transplantation centres. These banks store cord blood for a sick family member who needs treatment by means of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
A Cord Blood Bank for Families with Medical Indications is operating on the premises of University Hospital Centre Zagreb. If you would like to find more information on this bank, click HERE.
