Cord blood banking is simple, safe and secure. The collection process does not hurt the mother or baby and does not interfere with the birthing experience.
The opportunity to store your child’s cord blood stem cells only happens at the time of birth. In years past, the technology was not refined and very few stem cell transplants were conducted. Now, thousands of cord blood transplants have been conducted and several hundred clinical trials are underway.
Nearly every medical specialty is investigating the healing powers of stem cell therapy.
Private cord blood banking ensures that you have exclusive rights to your baby’s cord blood and can offer a powerful medical resource in fighting devastating chronic and acute diseases. New medical breakthroughs are happening all over the world with the use of cord blood transplants. For more information on cord blood clinical research, visit www.clinicaltrials.gov.
In the past, cord blood was considered medical waste and was tossed into the garbage. Researchers have been investigating cord blood stem cells over thirty year and realized the similarities between bone marrow and cord blood stem cells. For this reason, both private and public cord blood storage banks have been playing a key role in this advancement of the medical technology.
