Maternities

Help research
by collecting cord blood!

Why?

Stem cells derived from cord blood, isolated by ABCell-Bio, are used in scientific research.
They are widely studied in areas as varied as immunotherapy, cancerology, parasitology and cardio-vascular diseases.

How?

The use of cord blood stem cells is regulated by Bioethics laws.

The donation is voluntary, anonymous and free of charge.

Women are asked to donate this blood product when they give birth.
Organizing the collection for research purposes is simpler than for therapeutic use:

  • No need for the maternity to be accredited
  • No questionnaire, nor prior medical interview with the patient
  • No monitoring of the patient after blood collection

What people are saying

Research scientist
Head of an INSERM unit, France

“I head up a laboratory working on human stem cells. Our objective is cell therapy (vascular diseases, burns, chronic wounds). My team has often had occasion to use different types of primary human cells produced by ABCell-Bio. It saves time for the team and avoids issues around the supply and separation of human tissue and cell culture (often taking over a month).”

Obstetrician-Gynecologist
Béclère AP-HP Hospital, Clamart, France

“Donations of cord blood are indispensable in the care of patients around the world waiting for an organ transplant. Setting up safe and efficient techniques necessitates research in a number of indispensable steps. Donating for research is easy, altruistic and our duty.”

Midwife
Institut Mutualiste Montsouris, Paris, France

“The patients feel they are being useful and participating by donating their cord blood for their child’s future medical environment. This extraction is well accepted and is very often agreed to by the patients when we present it to them.”
