Portantino's New Umbilical Wire Blood Assortment Invoice

(Sacramento) – Assemblymember Anthony Portantino’s (D-La Cañada Flintridge) legislation to update the California Umbilical Cord Blood Collection program and provide more access to cord blood stem cells has been approved by the State Legislature and now goes to the Governor. AB 52 is a follow-up to Portantino’s 2007 legislation which established the public cord blood program. The current bill calls for moving the blood collection program from the CA Department of Public Health to the University of California where it would then be available for public use in treating immune system diseases such as leukemia, sickle cell anemia and certain cancers. Here’s more from Assemblymember Portantino in this Assembly Access video.
