For the first time, the Hospital Santa Casa de Misericordia in Bethlehem (PA), pulled the cord blood of a baby to help save the life of his brother diagnosed with leukemia.

The procedure was performed with the birth of the boy Rafael Wells on Tuesday (7). The child's mother, Cybele Cardoso Soares, 22, said the disease in the first child was diagnosed six months ago, when she was on her second pregnancy.

Even during pregnancy, cibele was advised by a nurse to talk to a doctor about the possibility of curing the child with the umbilical cord blood of the second pregnancy. I am very confident and secure that everything will be OK, said Cybele before delivery.

After all tests and examinations made by the team was found Hemopa compatibility, and marked emergency surgery at Santa Casa. According to Elen Elmescany nurse, responsible for Stock Collection of Cord Blood to the hospital, there are two forms of the patient receiving the placental cord blood. The first is unrelated, when blood is collected from the umbilical cords of people with no degree of relationship, just the woman to be in good health and have the characteristics of the donor, established by the National Agency of Sanitary Surveillance, Ministry of Health among relatives occurs when the mother herself is able to save the life of a child who needs a bone marrow transplant.

The collection was a result of the partnership between the Santa Casa de Misericordia of Para and the Foundation of Hemotherapy and Hematology Center of Pará (Hemopa).

National data

According to a survey by the National Registry of Bone Marrow Donors (Redome), the chance of finding a donor in Brazilian territory is 30 times greater than the possibility of meeting him abroad, due to genetic characteristics. The ideal donor (brother compatible) is only available in about 30% of Brazilian families. For 70% of patients is necessary to identify an alternative donor, from the records of donors in public banks of umbilical cord blood. With Redome, the chances of transplant for patients who have no related donors greatly increased and the number of transplants to be performed.
