What Is Cord Blood?
Cord blood is the excess blood left in the umbilical cord after your baby is born. For many years, it was discarded as medical waste. Scientists have since discovered that it is the body’s best source of potentially life-saving stem cells.
What are Cord Blood Stem Cells?
Stem cells from cord blood are the building blocks of the body’s blood and immune systems. These cells have the ability to repair and replace tissue that has been damaged by diseases, chemotherapy or other medical conditions.
How are Cord Blood Stem Cells Used?
Cord blood stem cells have been saving lives for over 20 years. Doctors have used cord blood stem cells in the treatment of leukemia, lymphoma, metabolic disorders, various anemias, and more. Cord blood stem cells are now routinely being used to treat over 80 critical diseases and conditions, and this list continues to grow every year. Current studies show promising treatments for autism, heart disease, diabetes, cerebral palsy, and others.
