In April 2016, Insception Lifebank released two more cord blood units (CBUs) for clinical trials in regenerative medicine. Both CBUs were shipped to Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina and used in two different clinical trials for Cerebral Palsy (CP).
On April 12, the first child, born in Prince George, BC, was infused with his own cord blood. On the same day, the second child, from Saskatoon SK, was infused with his sibling’s cord blood as part of a Phase 1 clinical trial designed to determine the safety of an intravenous infusion of sibling cord blood on patients with CP.
