Mr Piecha, the Deputy Minister of Health, talks about the necessity of umbilical cord blood bank certifications

The Polish Deputy Minister of Health states that the activity of so called 'umbilical cord blood banks' must be legislated. He claims that every bank will have to obtain a certificate in order to conduct its activity.

“To many people this blood is a future insurance for their children. Parents hope that stem cells will provide something that their children lack at some point in life.” – said Piecha yesterday in Kalisz.
