Date:4/29/2009

Landmark Bill to Advance Education and Informed Consent Recommendations Established by the Institutes of Medicine

SAN BRUNO, Calif., April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Cord Blood Registry (CBR), the global leader in the collection and preservation of newborn stem cells from umbilical cord blood, announced its support of legislation introduced by Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA) entitled the "Cord Blood Education and Awareness Act of 2009." If passed, this ground-breaking legislation will require the Secretary of Health and Human Services to develop and disseminate public education materials that will educate patients and physicians on the value of umbilical cord blood stem cells and set standards for patients to document the choice they've made about banking their newborn's cord blood stem cells. The Institutes of Medicine introduced recommendations on informed choice about cord blood banking in a comprehensive study submitted to Congress in 2004.

"As a California legislator she introduced the Maternal Child & Health Advancement Act, which became one of the first state laws to focus attention on the importance of educating every expectant parent about cord blood stem cells
