Multiracial Tissue Typing

Did you know?

Tissue typing for cord blood follows ethnic and racial background. Cord blood donations can be particularly important for patients from minority groups who need a transplant but often have a difficult time finding a bone marrow match. White adult patients have a 60 percent chance of finding an unrelated match among potential bone marrow donors, compared to a 5 percent to 15 percent chance among some minority groups.
