Did you know that umbilical chord blood stem cells are known to treat more than 75 diseases, and have been used in over 12,000 transplants worldwide?

I lost several friends in high school to leukemia, diabetes, and lymphoma as well as many family members to cancer. Stem cell replacement research was in the very early stages at the time and offered as an alternative, experimental treatment. I can not imagine how differently the results may have been had the research of today been complete not to mention the use of ones own stem cells as a replacement.

Stem cells are known to be the core source of blood cells in the human body. These generate and assure the blood cell requirements. Umbilical cord blood is blood that remains in the umbilical cord and placenta at the time of birth. Many professional believe the umbilical chord bloods are the key to a newborn’s stem cells.

This blood is normally discarded after delivery. With the discovery of rich stem cells contained within, the umbilical chord blood became a viable alternate in the success of bone marrow transplants. Further development revealed this cord blood can be processed, stored, and later used to replenish the stem cells in case of a stem cell transplant.

Cryo-Cell Cord Blood Bank is one of the largest and most established family cord blood stem cell banks. Incorporated in 1989, Cryo-Cell Cord has been involved in umbilical cord blood preservation business since 1992. They have achieved numerous successfully cord blood transplants for diseases including anemia, leukemia, and lymphoma.

In addition to transplants, new medical technology has in some cases, utilized stem cells to rebuild cardiac tissue, repairs for spinal chord injuries, and even reversing the effects of multiple sclerosis.

Many medical research professionals believe cord blood is just the first step in new medical advancements. Storing a newborns chord blood prepares for potential use against many diseases and injuries.
