Cord Blood Reduces Risk of Leukemia Recurrence


New information from a research study conducted at the Masonic Cancer Center at the University of Minnesota shows that patients who have acute leukemia and are transplanted with two units of umbilical cord blood have significantly reduced risk of the disease returning.

“We believe our finding provides evidence that using two units of UCB for transplantation may be more effective in preventing leukemia relapse and gives hope to patients with hematological malignancies so that they may live cancer-free,” says Michael Verneris, M.D, leader of the research team.

This incredibly hopeful finding has the potential to change the current medical practice of using one unit of UCB for treatment of patients who are at high risk for recurrence of leukemia and other cancers of the blood and bone marrow.
