Repair, Renew, Rejuvenate

Currently Used to Treat Over 80 Life-Threatening Diseases

Cord blood is one of the most commonly used sources of stem cells for treating disease, including cancers, blood disorders and genetic diseases.

The uses of cord blood will continue to expand. More than 1000 clinical trials are underway exploring the use of stem cells to treat a wide range of conditions, including diabetes, cancers and heart disease.

Types of Stem Cell Transplants

Stem cells are used as a treatment option for diseases that require tissue regeneration or repair. During a transplant, diseased cells can be replaced with new, healthy stem cells.

There are two main types of stem cell transplants: Autologous stem cell transplants and Allogeneic stem cell transplants.

In autologous stem cell transplants, diseases are treated using a person’s own stem cells. The samples can be accessed anytime during your child’s lifetime.

In allogeneic stem cell transplants, diseases are treated using another person’s stem cells. Your entire family may benefit from preserving your baby’s stem cells from cord blood.
