"This latest discovery is merely one symptom of a 'spamming war started at the heart of science' in which researchers feel pressured to rush out papers to publish as much as possible."

Analysis of risk factors influencing outcomes after cord blood transplantation in children with juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia: a EUROCORD, EBMT, EWOG-MDS, CIBMTR study.

The 5-year disease-free survival rate was 44%. In multivariate analysis, factors predicting better disease-free survival were age younger than 1.4 years at diagnosis (hazard ratio [HR], 0.42; P = .005), 0 to 1 HLA disparities in the donor/recipient pair (HR, 0.4; P = .009), and karyotype other than monosomy 7 (HR, 0.5; P = .02).

I wonder if it's hard to synthesize or regenerate the collagen "scaffolding" as well.  If it requires a donated human "scaffolding", that might become the limiting factor in applying it for transplants.  But who knows what they can come up with 20 years down the road.

Story
Tagline
My goal is to make public cord blood banking a self-sustaining operations, so that it can provide a stable supply of high-quality hematopoietic stem cell resources to all ethnicities and ages for life-saving transplantation treatments at an affordable price.
Introduction
As the Laboratory Director / Cord Blood Bank Director (NetCord-FACT) of Singapore Cord Blood Bank (SCBB, http://www.scbb.com.sg/), I am responsible for the overall operations of Donor Management, Cord Blood Collection, Processing Facility, and Search and Distribution; and their compliance with the US FDA, AABB and NetCord-FACT Standards.

I am especially interested in the research and development of cord blood ex vivo expansion. I am also interested in long-term technical development, financial viability and sustainability of public cord blood banking. My goal is to make public cord blood banking a self-sustaining operations, so that it can provide a stable supply of high-quality hematopoietic stem cell resources to all ethnicities and ages for life-saving transplantation treatments at an affordable price.
