New York, NY 10021
NYBC's Milstein National Cord Blood Center (supported by the Howard and Abby Milstein Foundation) and its National Cord Blood Program (NCBP) is the world's oldest and remains the largest single public cord blood bank. We collect, process, test and store cord blood that mothers donate to us for use by patient in need for a hematopoietic stem cell transplant. Our Program makes cord blood available under an Investigational New Drug (IND) exemption from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for children and adults who face a life-threatening illness and need "stem cell" transplants from unrelated donors. NYBC's NCBP was also the first public cord blood bank in the world to receive NetCord-FACT accreditation (June 2003). Click here for more information on NetCord-FACT accreditation. NCBP obtained its IND exemption from the FDA in 1996, the first cord blood bank to do so. To qualify for the IND, we submitted our policies and protocols to the FDA and have provided annual reports on our Program and on the results of transplants using cord blood units from our bank. FDA has since issued several guidance documents to clarify the requirements for cord blood banks to become licensed. Cord blood is a "biological" product and, pending FDA licensure, the proper context for cord blood banking and for using cord blood in treating patients, is under an FDA IND exemption. This is because, from a regulatory viewpoint, cord blood is still an experimental source of hematopoietic (blood-forming) stem cells. From the regulatory perspective, the donors of cord blood (the mothers who donate their newborn's cord blood) and the patients who receive cord blood transplants are "human research subjects" under FDA and Office for Human Research Protection (OHRP). For this reason, we collect cord blood following protocols, policies and procedures submitted to the FDA and formally accepted by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) of the New York Blood Center as well as by the IRB of each of the hospitals that collaborate with us as a collection center. To date, cord blood donations from more than 53,000 mothers have been made to the NYBC's National Cord Blood Program. Our donors come from all ethnic backgrounds. The NCBP now collects cord blood in eight affiliated hospitals: six in the New York metropolitan area, one in Fairfax County, Virginia and one in Cleveland, Ohio [See About Us and Collection Sites] and will add one or two more over the coming year. We have a goal to reach 100,000 cord blood units over the next five years.
