China Cord Blood Corporation and Cord Blood Registry Enter into Memorandum of Understanding Regarding Strategic Collaboration in China and the United States

China Cord Blood Corporation and Cord Blood Registry entered into a memorandum of understanding regarding their strategic collaboration in China and the United States. The two prominent cord blood banks will share data on cord blood collection, processing and storage to advance international standards. The companies will also work together under the memorandum, to develop a family disease registry for China Cord Blood Corporation's clients in China and jointly support newborn stem cell-related clinical trials in the U.S. and China. This important collaborative effort achieves a milestone in bringing the two large cord blood banks in the world into close concert for the benefit of their client families, future patients and the stem cell clinical research community. It also presents an opportunity to aid families impacted by certain diseases across an international and racially diverse population. In the aggregate, the two companies have collected and stored samples from an estimated 1 million newborn children worldwide, accounting for nearly half of all cord blood units preserved globally. Through this collaboration, they will be able to share its expertise and resources and improve mutual access to crucial research in China and the U.S. This partnership is a significant step toward raising global awareness of the importance of newborn cord blood hematopoietic stem cell research.
