CORD BLOOD STEM CELLS SAVES LIVES!
The opportunity to save a baby’s potentially lifesaving cord blood stem cells happens only once in a lifetime – at birth – so it’s important that expecting parents learn about cord blood banking and understand their options.
Why store your baby’s stem cells ?
Today stem cells are being used in transplant medicine to treat over 80 serious diseases and disorders including certain cancers (leukemia and other types), blood disorders (thalassemia, sickle cell anemia, aplastic anemia and others) and immune and metabolic disorders. Cord blood stem cells have been used for more than 25 years in 35,000+ transplants for children and adults.
In addition to saving lives through stem cell transplants, cord blood stem cells have properties that have been shown in laboratory studies to help the body repair itself. Cord blood stem cell therapy is being investigated in patients in FDA-regulated clinical studies for conditions including:
