    Availability of stem cell for the needy people is a the main problem in india for stem cell transplantation. With the help of stemcyte india, people could get the stem cells readily and at a lower cost compared to getting it from some foreign country.
    With stemcyte india, health tourism in india will also rise.

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    My son, Viraj (21 years old) is a Thalassemia Major patient, taking Blood transfusion(2 units) every 15 days. Since he has no sibling, I was little nervous and was feeling hopeless about getting his disease cured. But now with the new research about cord blood and its banking for public also, I am feeling hopeful about getting his disease cured.
    Kindly let me know, how to go about it i.e. where we can send his blood sample for HLA typing. Also any other information you would like to give reg. this.
    We are residing in Mumbai. YOur early reply in this matter will be highly appreciated. God Bless You! Regds!
