Cord Blood America Supports Trend From New York, California for States to Inform Parents of the Advantages of Umbilical Cord Blood Storage
Date:2/6/2008

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cord Blood America, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CBAI), the umbilical cord blood stem cell preservation company (http://www.cordblood-america.com ) focused on bringing the life saving potential of stem cells to families nationwide and internationally, today said it believes the trend established in 2007 for states to legislate that consumers should be made aware of the advantages of umbilical cord blood storage will continue in 2008 and beyond.
