May 8, 2011 - PRLog -- Professor Norman Ende, Ph.D., M.D., reports in April issue of "The Journal of Military Medicine" that transfusions of whole, untampered units of umbilical cord blood could save U.S. combat personal from lifetime impairment through paralysis, burns, and brain damage. FDA regulations currently bar doctors from using cord blood medically for non-malignant conditions without first obtaining the agency's cost-prohibitive "Investigative New Drug" approval.

Ende maintains such transfusions are safer than whole blood transfusions matched for blood type (which injured military personnel already receive). In preparing his article, Ende arranged the logistics of cord blood treatments between German cord blood banks and the U.S. Military hospital that receives combat casualties most likely to benefit from this treatment. The windows of greatest therapeutic benefit cord blood may offer for Traumatic Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury, wound healing and burns matches the precise timing of patient arrival to American Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany.

Media interest and public support are all that's needed to make it happen.

Dr. Ende and his colleague, a former U.S. Air Force Surgeon General, can be interviewed regarding this potential via the contact information below. Likewise, Dr. Ende will gladly furnish a copy of the full report in "The Journal of Military Medicine."
