Lisa Lorraine Reyes Muñoz, GeneCell International’s Physicians Relations Manager, Launches Cord Blood Educational Meetings for General Public on Cord Blood Stem Cells

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) July 17, 2013

Lisa Lorraine Reyes Muñoz, GeneCell International’s Physician Relations Manager announced today her contribution to educating South Florida’s expecting parents to advance the awareness in the community. Expecting parents in Miami are encouraged to attend these meetings to learning more about this medical advancement.

Ms. Reyes Muñoz joined GeneCell International as a Physician Relations Manager, fluent in Spanish, with a science and pharmacology background. Reyes Muñoz has been interviewed by several Spanish networks including “Capsulas del Exito” and Preguntale a su Doctor, a weekly segment of GenTV (WGEN), in an effort to promote the awareness of cord blood preservation and its future potentials.

"What is most rewarding is to be able to apprise expecting parents and their families on the current and future treatments of these stem cells as well as explain the controversial differences about them," said Lisa Lorraine Reyes Muñoz.

Umbilical cord blood preservation is a process by which blood is collected from the umbilical cord of a newborn baby and is stored cryogenically in a specially-designated bank. According to the National Marrow Donor Program, cord blood contains cells that can be transfused to a patient to treat various diseases, including lymphoma and leukemia. The list of illnesses that can be treated with cord blood continues to grow.

"A person’s blood stem cell type is inherited, which means a patient is more likely to find a matched donor from within their own ethnic group," said GeneCell’s Director of Operations, Jose Cirino. "More than half of cord blood donations and privately banked cord blood in the United States are from Caucasians while minorities remain underrepresented. By increasing the awareness of cord blood advantages among minorities, there is a potential for increased access to therapies for more people."

Cord blood can be used to treat the child from whom the blood was collected as well as some first-degree relatives who are a close genetic match, such as family members. Cord blood banking is regulated by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and each year more and more parents choose to save their children’s cord blood should the medical need arise.
