Dr Milton Ende (brother of Dr. Norman Ende) describes a use of umbilical cord blood to try to inhibit the growth of a malignancy in a patient who had been diagnosed with lymphangiosarcoma. The procedure took place in 1963. According to the author this is the earliest recorded attempt to use fetal cord blood in therapy. Dr. Ende discusses the theory behind the procedure, including the possibility that something in infants’ blood prevented them from having malignancies.
