About

Bank Director: Fabienne Pouthier, MD

Besançon Cord Blood Bank of the Etablissement Français du Sang is a member of the French Cord Blood Registry (France Greffe de Moelle). The registry encompasses three cord blood banks accredited by FACT-NetCord, located in Besançon, Bordeaux, and Montpellier.

L'Agence de la biomédecine, the French agency of biomedicine, has created a website designed to answer questions from expectant parents about cord blood banking: www.dondesangdecordon.fr

Here is an excerpt from the website:
"Des sociétés à but lucratif font miroiter de possibles utilisations de sang de cordon dans le futur pour soigner son enfant avec ses propres cellules, dans le cas où il serait malade. Cette pratique ne repose actuellement sur aucun fondement scientifique. C’est pourquoi, en France, le prélèvement et la conservation à visée autologue sont illégaux et punis par la loi."

English translation:
Corporate profit dangle possible uses of cord blood in the future to treat her child with her own cells, where it would be sick. This practice is currently not based on any scientific basis. This is why, in France, the collection and preservation autologous is illegal and punishable by law.
