Children's Hospital in Colorado Rounds off List of 24 Cord Blood Transplant Centers Worldwide Enrolling for ExCell Trial Studying StemEx(R) for Leukemia and Lymphoma

ted adult donor or cord blood unit. Depending on the patient's race or ethnicity, a well matched, unrelated adult marrow or blood stem cell donor may not be available for as many as 40% of these patients. In that and other circumstances, a stored unrelated cord blood unit can be a valuable alternative option.

Cord blood has fewer matching requirements than bone marrow or peripheral blood transplants, providing the potential to increase the number of suitable transplant matches and to shorten the time it can take to find a match. However, there are a limited number of stem/progenitor cells in each cord blood unit, often limiting unrelated cord blood transplants to younger, smaller pediatric patients. StemEx employs a technology that expands this small number of cord blood stem/progenitor cells, potentially increasing their therapeutic capacity for transplantation in adolescents and adults.

"Our goal is to develop a product that will effectively treat blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma. It is with this goal in mind that the ExCell team is studying the effects of StemEx. It is our hope that more doctors, patients and the friends and family of patients will become familiar with this study," said David Snyder, vice president of clinical development.
