Réflexion autour du don de sang de cordon

Abstract : The use of placental cord blood is an emerging subject, mainly because it is an increasingly important source of hematopoietic stem cells used in allogeneic transplants. It has genuine, efficient and well-known therapeutic uses. Placenta and cord blood represent a potential in therapeutic matters but also in research, especially regarding stem cells. They are a precious resource but are nonetheless considered as surgical waste. This essay is a study regarding the ethical and legal issues and also the drifts which are consecutive to any technical innovation. The State's role is essential in the development of therapies that use cord blood. It is involved in the protection of families against a commodification of the human body and its products, and as a scientific research supporter as well.
