Date:8/29/2011

LAS VEGAS, Aug. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cord Blood America, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CBAI) announced today it has entered into an agreement with BancoVida (www.bancovida.com) to offer umbilical cord blood collection services in Puerto Rico and throughout the Caribbean.

The partnership will allow BancoVida and Cord Blood America to educate prospective parents in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean on the value of storing their baby's umbilical cord blood.  The stem cells will be stored at Cord Blood America's state-of-the-art facility in Las Vegas.

"We are very excited about our partnership with BancoVida and for the opportunity to assist them in bringing this potentially life-saving service to an underserved area," said Gabby Stinson, Cord Blood America Project Manager.

Cord blood stem cells, which are collected at birth in a non-invasive procedure, are currently used to treat more than 70 diseases including leukemia, severe anemia, metabolic blood disorders and immune deficiencies.  Various studies and clinical trials are currently underway to determine the effectiveness of stem cells in treating some of the most serious diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson's and cerebral palsy for which there is no known cure.
