There does need to be a blood type match, plus about 4 other things...I havent found out what yet...we are looking into collecting cord blood from 2 new arrivals early in 2009...all I have found out so far is that the blood group must match...PLUS...but so far I cannot find out what. There is a stem cell bank in the UK, (manchester)...look under the Anthony Nolan Trust...which started MANY years ago just for bone marrow transplants....they have only just opened the cord blood bank, but it mainly deals with stem cells for leukemia, they wont consider anything to do with MND yet, as nothing is proven...BUT Kings College hospital in london are now also collecting cord blood for research...and one of the main doctors is a neuro, looking at finding help for mnd/alsThis is an odd question, but are the stem cells family members of the ALS patients?
And I'm told they need to be a blood type match? Is there a stem bank for matches?
We get it, advertisements are annoying!
