(This amendment provides funding to establish the Virginia Cord Blood Bank Initiative, pursuant to House Bill 413. It is the intent of the General Assembly that the funding for the Virginia Cord Blood Bank be used in the most cost efficient manner. To this end, the Department of Health should contract with a facility that already has a cell separator that can be used for this initiative. The Virginia Cord Blood Bank would serve as a public resource for Virginians for the treatment of patients with life-threatening or debilitating conditions, for use in advancing basic and clinical research, and in the event of a terrorist attack, for use in the treatment of the injured citizens of the Commonwealth.)
