    Feds Promote Donation of Umbilical Cords

    Depending on how things go in the ChinaSCINet trials this could speed things up.


    The Health Resources and Services Administration recently awarded contracts totaling nearly $10 million to coordinate cord blood donations and to monitor the outcome of transplants.
    And, any day now, the agency will award about $14 million to public cord blood banks around the country. The goal: Increase the supply of cord blood donations from 50,000 to 150,000.
