Americord Registry Presents Abstract on Stem Cell Collection Method at 2011 COSTEM Conference and AABB Meeting
Date:9/8/2011

NEW YORK, Sept. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Americord Registry, a leader in the advancement of cord blood and placenta stem cell preservation, announced today that Dr. Robert Dracker, Americord's Executive Medical Director, will present an abstract on a revolutionary cord blood collection method at the COSTEM Congress September 8-11, at Andel's Hotel in Berlin, Germany and at the AABB Annual Meeting, October 22-25, at the San Diego Convention Center.

Dr. Dracker is a leading hematologist, transfusion medicine specialist and experienced blood and stem cell banking expert. His poster, "A Novel Method for the Collection and Processing of Hematopoietic Stem Cells from Human Umbilical Cord Blood and Stabilized Placental," will be made available at the poster session.

"This unique cord blood collection method makes it possible to preserve stem cells from a newborn's umbilical cord blood and the placenta, preserving up to 10 times more stem cells than traditional cord blood collection alone," Dr. Dracker said. "This development addresses the most significant limitation of traditional cord blood banking: the fact that it only preserves enough stem cells to treat patients who weigh up to 65 pounds on average."

This procedure, which will be employed by Americord for its cord blood and placenta banking services, is an advancement of an existing commercial technique that will make it possible to bank more stem cells than traditional cord blood collection alone. This advance
