As a state-designated acute care children's hospital, Saint Peter's offers a full range of specialized pediatric healthcare service with one of the most sophisticated maternity programs and one of the largest, most advanced neonatal intensive care units in the country.
The DomaniCell program involves hospitals partnering with DomaniCell to develop their own cord blood stem cell banking program that is built on DomaniCell infrastructure and technology.
DomaniCell's program is built upon years of clinical and industry experience gained through its parent company, Progenitor Cell Therapy LLC. Progenitor Cell Therapy's management team has over 135 years of combined experience in cell therapy, built five cGMP facilities and participated in over 50 regulatory filings in the US and Europe. The company has served over 100 clients, performed over 30,000 cell therapy procedures involving more than 17,000 units of over 20 different kinds of cell-based products, approximately 5,000 of which have already been used for patient treatment.
"Through its unrivaled, GMP-compliant cord blood banking system, the program exceeds industry standards, minimizes risk of product loss or failure and makes participation in cord blood banking much easier for the mother," explains DomaniCell Chairman, Dr. Andrew L. Pecora. "We believe the program ensures the most viable cord blood product is available for future therapeutic use by the family that stored it.
