Q2. My child’s cord blood can potentially be used to treat:

  1. My child
  2. My child’s sibling
  3. Myself
  4. All of the above
Your child’s own cord blood stem cells are a perfect match to your child, so any time your child needs them they are available for immediate use, and there is no need to search for a matching donor and no chance of rejection or tissue incompatibility. Furthermore, your child’s cord blood can also be used for siblings and other members of your family who have a matching tissue type. Siblings have up to a 50% chance of compatibility.
