Eurocord History

EUROCORD was founded by Professor Eliane Gluckman in 1995. It was originally built as an international registry of cord blood transplants and stem cell therapies for malignant & non-malignant hematological diseases, then diversified its activities to the field of Autoimmune Disease where it operates in association with the European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) and the ‘Société Française de Greffe de Moelle’ (SFGM) and to collect and validate clinical data of patients transplanted.

EUROCORD has been operating on behalf of the EBMT as a registry for cord blood recipients since 1995, collecting and validating clinical data. In July 2010, EUROCORD split into two different administrative entities:

1. The Eurocord-Study group, located in Saint Louis Hospital, Paris.

2. The Eurocord Registry transferred to the “Agence de la Biomédecine”, a French public administrative institution working under the responsibility of the French Ministry of Health, competent in organ, tissues and cells donation and transplantation.

3. The Monacord is the latest Eurocord study group hosted, since November 2013, in the Centre Scientifique de Monaco, as part of its Medical Biology division. The group’s objective is to improve the management and quality of care in Sickle Cell Disease (SCD), and to transfer these practices to countries with limited health care access. This initiative is supported by the International Sickle Cell Disease Observatory.
