Abstract: Clearly it was found that there is no evidence that the Autologous use of cord blood (storing one's own cord blood) has any benefit over using cord blood from other sources. The EU therefore is strongly of the opinion that in order for people to have equal access, if anything, it is public banks that should be looked into. Moreover such public banks will then network together in order to have immediate access should the need arise. However it stresses that couples should be free to make a choice based on sound information which should stress that they are still very much in the experimental stage.
