    I from Gynaecologist perspective giving you a brief recommendations regarding umbilical cord blood banking :

    Umbilical cord blood banking ( ACOG & IAP recommendations):

    1) Umbilical cord blood transplantation has been used to treat malignant disorders, hematological conditions, immune deficiency disorders &inherited metabolic disorders.

    2)Public cord blood banking should be promoted over private banking.

    3) All should consider the social benefit of public umbilical cord blood donation to increase the availability of matched cord blood units for people of all backgrounds

    4)Umbilical cord blood collected from a neonate cannot be used to treat a genetic disease or
    malignancy in that same individual (autologous transplant ) because stored cord blood contains the same genetic variant or premalignant cells that led to the condition being treated.

    5) The routine collection and storage of umbilical cord blood with a private cord blood bank is not supported by the available evidence.

    6) Private cord blood banking is only recommended when an existing family member (sibling or biological parent) is suffering from diseases approved to be cured by allogenic stem cell transplantation.

    7)Public umbilical cord blood banking is the recommended method of obtaining umbilical cord blood for use in transplantation, immune therapies, or other medically validated indications.
