Cord Blood Banking
Cord Tissue Banking
Cord blood is the blood that remains in your newborn's umbilical cord after birth. This blood contains valuable stem cells that could be a rich and powerful source of healing.
Cord blood banking preserves these stem cells in order to save them for later use in:
Cord blood transplants involve infusing stem cells into a patient's blood stream where they go to work to create a healthy new immune system - used to treat nearly 80 diseases including cancers and blood disorders.
The tissue found in your newborn's umbilical cord contains a different kind of stem cell called mesenchymal stem cells or MSCs.
Though still in the research phase, MSCs are showing great potential for future treatments in:
"Imagine a world where there is no donor organ shortage, where victims of spinal cord injuries can walk, and where weakened hearts are replaced.
This is the long-term promise of regenerative medicine, a rapidly developing field with the potential to transform the treatment of human disease through the development of innovative new therapies that offer a faster, more complete recovery with significantly fewer side effects or risk of complications."
