Activate Your Center

U.S. transplant centers are invited to participate in our IND protocol, 10-CBA, for access to unlicensed, minimally manipulated, cord blood units for FDA-specified disease indications. This protocol has been accepted by the FDA and approved by the NMDP IRB, and is open for patient enrollment. View cord blood transplantation scenarios guide (PDF). Sites have the option of submitting the study for IRB review to their local IRB or to the NMDP’s Single/Central IRB. The 10-CBA Study Team can assist sites in enrolling with the NMDP IRB.
