Public Cord Blood Banking in Stany Zjednoczone

Publiczne banki krwi pępowinowej są odpowiedzią na potrzeby społeczne. Ich celem jest zwiększenie zasobów przechowywanej krwi pępowinowej oraz jednocześnie zwiększenie wykorzystywania krwi pępowinowej do przeszczepień. W Stanach Zjednoczonych rejestr dawców nazywa się Be The Match. Aby można było wykonać przeszczepienie komórek macierzystych konieczna jest zgodność pomiędzy dawcą a biorcą. Dużo łatwiej jest o taką zgodność w przypadku krwi pępowinowej niż w przypadku szpiku kostnego. Żeby oddać krew pępowinową na cele publiczne poród musi odbyć się w szpitalu uczestniczącym w tego typu akcjach.
