What is cord blood banking and why might you consider it?
A small amount of your child’s umbilical cord blood can be easily collected in the delivery room shortly following birth, frozen, and stored for possible future medical use. In fact, physicians have used stem cells derived from such samples of stored cord blood in over 25,000 organ transplants and to treat over 80 life-threatening diseases including cancers, blood disorders and immune system deficiencies. Experts currently estimate that a child born today will have a 1 in 217 chance of someday having a medical condition that may be treated with stem cells during his or her lifetime. In addition to banking stem cells from your baby’s umbilical cord blood, Family Cord also offers you the opportunity to bank stem cells from your baby’s cord tissue. Researchers have discovered that stem cells from cord tissue play a major role in future clinical therapies within regenerative medicine. This research holds the promise of regenerating damaged tissue and organs by stimulating the body to heal itself. Trials are under way using cord tissue stem cells to treat debilitating conditions such as heart disease, stroke, liver disease, Parkinson’s disease and spinal cord injury.
