^ In Private Banks, it is mandatory to use Baby’s Own UCB to get one additional matching sample from public bank if a match is available. But, in 90% conditions baby CANNOT use Own UCB, hence the baby is deprived of protection from donor stem cells.
^^ Siblings: Only if it matches baby’s cord blood (chances are only 25%) and in such case only 1 additional UCB from public bank. Parents : They cannot use baby’s cord blood due to lack of HLA matching. Since in PrB it is mandatory to use baby’s own UCB to get 1 additional UCB from public bank, Parents don’t get donor stem cells.
^^^ Baby : Only 8 conditions using own UCB.
