Recruiting Trials: Cord Blood

This portal enables our readers to find registered clinical trials worldwide that are currently enrolling patients for therapy with cord blood stem cells. If you are a patient seeking more information about a trial, please click on the link under the trial's registry identification. That will take you to the original trial registration, and within that description you should find contact information. This list does not constitute medical advice and Parent's Guide to Cord Blood Foundation has no relationship with any of these trial sponsors. We maintain this list by checking multiple national clinical trial registries. We only display clinical studies that are registered on an official trials registry. Complete through 30 April 2020.

Brain injuries seen in newborns include: in-utero stroke, apraxia, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), cerebral palsy (CP), hydrocephalus, and others. Cord blood therapy has shown promise for these conditions, as described in our newsletters articles about Duke's sibling cord blood trial for cerebral palsy, Adriana's cord blood therapy for cerebral palsy, the story of an Ecuadoran boy with Cerebral Palsy, and Isabella's treatment for Apraxia.
