A reserve of umbilical cord blood of a newborn baby will provide those leukemia patients with a chance of survival and will actually serve as a life insurance for the baby in the days to come. The reporter learned on January 6 that a bank of umbilical cord blood-derived hematopoietic stem cells will be built at the International Medical Care Center in Yinchuan City¡¯s New Riparian District to accommodate the demand of Ningxia Region and even that of the country¡¯s northwest for the development of cell-based therapy affairs and the development of the cell-based drug production.

Cord blood bank which usually consists of the public and private part, also known as ¡°life bank¡± in the world, is of a special medical organization for umbilical cord blood-derived hematopoietic stem cells extraction and storage, and an entity that provides patients with stem cell matching information service. A public part of the cord blood bank usually collects and stores the cord blood donated by the public on free of charge basis with the data and information of each bag of such blood donated being uploaded to the State Hematopoietic Stem Cell Database for scientific researches and for those patients that need hematopoietic stem cell transplant. The private part of a cord blood bank, however, provides paid service for the storage of cord blood from individuals according to the number of years of the storage. The blood so stored on the clients¡¯ expenses can be reserved for self use purpose or can be used as a paid donation for others.  

China¡¯s cord blood bank construction began in 1998. To date, eight of the cord blood banks built in Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Shandong, Guangzhou, Zhejiang, Sichuan and Chongqing have acquired the business operation eligibility required and recognized by the Ministry of Public Health of the People¡¯s Republic of China. The 140-mu cord blood bank jointly built by AVIC (Ningxia) Biology Co., Ltd and YinchuanWomen & ChildrenHealthcareHospitalin Ningxia Region will carry out such business activities as cord blood collection and the separation, storage and application of stem cells in cooperation with the No.1 People¡¯sHospitalofYinchuan. The cord blood bank built in the 1st phase of the project with capacity of 1 million bags of cord blood is composed of a public and a private bank, and is expected to put into use in April 2015. With the completion of the 2nd phase construction of the project, the bank¡¯s capacity will reach 5 million bags of cord blood, which will largely accommodate Ningxia Region¡¯s demand and even the demand of the surrounding areas for cord blood storage. The bank will by then become the country¡¯s largest bank of cord blood so far.
