“As someone who has performed many bone marrow transplants I know how difficult they can be. That’s why I’m so pleased that New Zealand parents will now have the chance to bank the cord blood of their newborn babies. This development could save lives in future.”
Dr Lochie Teague
Clinical Director of Paediatric Haematology and Oncology (and advisor to CordBank)

“I recommend that all expectant parents ask their doctor about the life-saving potential of the cord blood. Today cord blood is being used to treat such life-threatening diseases as leukaemia and other cancers, as well as certain blood and immune disorders that formerly necessitated a bone marrow transplant.”
Dr Peter Nobbs MB ChB, Fellow FRCP (c )
Neonatal Paediatrician, National Women’s Hospital

“I would certainly do it for my children.”
Dr Geoff Bye, MB ChB, FRANZCOG, FRCOG Obstetrician
Director – Auckland Obstetrics Centre (AOC)
