Iona Novak, head of research at the Cerebral Palsy Alliance in Australia, has announced a new clinical trial of a therapy using umbilical cord blood infusions. About 20 children aged up to 10 years will take part in the study to be co-ordinated by the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. Meanwhile the Royal Australasian College of Physicians is urging parents of children with cerebral palsy against unproven stem cell treatments offered in countries such as Panama, China, India and Russia
