Cord blood is the blood that remains in your baby’s umbilical cord after it has been cut. Cord blood has a high concentration of stem cells that may be used in a variety of medical treatments. Having these cord blood stem cells available as a potential valuable therapeutic resource can be lifesaving or life-changing for your baby or other family members.
Human umbilical cord blood has been an area of scientific research and advancement for decades. In fact, the world’s first successful human cord blood transplant was conducted in 1988 where stem cells were injected into a baby with Fanconi’s Anemia. In 1991, a transplant was successfully performed on a baby with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). These initial accomplishments opened doors to utilizing cord blood for medical situations where traditionally bone marrow transplants would have been utilized.
Today, cord blood stem cells have been used to treat more than 80 diseases, including blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma. Cord blood stem cells are showing potential in research studies to treat conditions that have no cure today such as juvenile diabetes and brain injury.
Saving your baby’s cord blood today can bring you the peace of mind of knowing that you may be giving your family an important advantage for a healthy future.
