Cryo-Save Carries on its Stem Cell Education Program in Bulgaria

ZUTPHEN, The Netherlands, February 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Cryo-Save Bulgaria participated in the 5th National Conference of Obstetricians & Gynecologists from the Out-patient Setting, held on February 24-26 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

After the recent initiatives in Italy, Serbia and Bosnia, Cryo-Save Bulgaria joins Cryo-Saves official training plans and reaffirms the efforts of the company to put together its educational program about stem cells therapies and current applications.

Cryo-Save Bulgaria gave a presentation about why the stem cells from the umbilical cord blood should be donated or saved, and not wasted. Topics that have been covered include the advances and perspectives on stem cell therapies, the regulatory issues of the physician and his responsibility to inform the patient, and the different services offered by Cryo-Save to the patients.

Dr. Mandov, from Vesela Maternity Clinic, Plovdiv, said: "In the last couple of years, there was an ever growing interest in cryo-preservation of stem cells among pregnant women. We welcome Cryo-Saves initiative to be pro-active in educating obstetricians about this topic, so that we can convince patients more effectively about the potential benefits of stem cell storage."

The conference has been organized by the National Society of Obstetricians/Gynecologists from the Ambulatory Care.

Dr. Petrov, Chief Organizer of the event and Chairman of the Bulgarian Society of Obstetricians & Gynecologists in the Out-patient Setting, said: "Stem cell based therapies and regenerative medicine represent one of the most promising development avenues for modern medicine to go. We appreciate Cryo-Saves participation in this event because it gave us some up-to-date insight into cryo-preservation and clinical application of cord blood derived stem cells. We also highly appreciate Cryo-Saves "Donate or Save" initiative because of its clear public health benefit potential."

Because of its leading role in the stem cell storage industry, Cryo-Save has developed multiple educational programs aimed at increasing global awareness about current treatments and future promising applications. The company is convinced that everyone should be aware of the options available to them and have the opportunity to store their babys stem cells.


Cryo-Save, the leading international family stem cell bank, stores more than 200,000 samples from umbilical cord blood, cord tissue and adipose tissue. There are already many diseases treatable by the use of stem cells, and the number of treatments will only increase. Driven by its international business strategy, Cryo-Save is now represented in over 40 countries on four continents, with ultra-modern processing and storage facilities in the United States, Belgium, Germany, Dubai, India, South Africa and France (validation in progress).
