BOCA RATON, Fla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--AssureImmune LLC (AI), the premier family stem cell
bank in the United States, today announced their merger with Banco de Cordón Umbilical (BCU), the largest cord
blood bank in Latin America. This merger expands the Companies’ global reach providing family stem cell banking
services to North, Central and South America. With state-of-the-art automated equipment and laboratories for
processing, testing and storage in the U.S., Mexico and Brazil, the new organization is well positioned to become the
leading family stem cell bank in the Americas.
There are over 70 diseases that can be treated with stem cells, including leukemia, anemia, blood cancers, and
immune system dysfunctions. Currently, there are over 400 clinical trials underway in the U.S. in final Phase III.
These clinical trials are focused on new ways of safely and effectively using stem cells to treat, and potentially cure,
cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, cancer, orthopedic conditions, and more.
With more than 50 offices in the Americas, tens of thousands of satisfied customers and several successful
transplants, BCU has positioned itself as the premier Cord Blood Bank in this market. “We are very excited about
this groundbreaking opportunity to expand into the U.S. market as well as to offer stem cell banking services to
older children and adults, who did not have the opportunity to bank their cord blood stem cells,” states Teodoro
Myslabodski, BCU’s President & CEO.
“This merger brings together two companies committed to excellence and state-of-the-art facilities providing AI the
opportunity to expand into the Latin American market. The new organization is well equipped to execute our
