Note: Some diseases may be known by other names. Also, the use of umbilical cord blood stem cells to treat many diseases and conditions is typically considered as standard therapy, while the treatment for other conditions may still be in a clinical trial phase. Currently, stem cells are being used in trials for the treatment of brain injuries, cerebral palsy, diabetes, spinal cord injuries, heart disease and liver disease. These conditions have not been included in this list.
