Stem cells have the potential to help treat hundreds of conditions. To unlock their potential, we need data.

CBR is the nation’s leading cord blood stem cell bank, serving as a place for families to keep stem cells from the umbilical cord for possible treatments in the future.

Through CBR's Newborn Possibilities Program®, CBR can collect the data needed to focus research on treatments that may help thousands of families.

We’re building a registry that collects the health histories of CBR families across the nation.

With it, we’re identifying the common conditions of families that may be able to use their stem cells in a new way.

And then we’re matching patients who may be candidates for clinical trials.

Here's how it works:

1. We securely and
confidentially gather and
store family health
information.

2. We identify common
conditions that may be treatable
with newborn stem cells.

3. We initiate and sponsor
FDA-regulated clinical trials to
further stem cell research.

4. We pinpoint potential
candidates for these new trials
and connect them.

5. We share discoveries about
stem cell advancements and
outcomes with our families and
their doctors.

It starts with CBR’s family health questionnaire ...

So far, 100,000+ families have completed the survey, identifying any conditions that may be treatable with stem cells.

Out those who’ve responded, CBR has identified 5,300+ families as potentially benefitting from our research efforts, with conditions such as:

Autism/Autism Spectrum
Disorder/Apraxia

Cerebral palsy/Periventricular
Leukomalacia/Hypotonia

In-utero Brain Injury/Stroke

Hypoxic-ischemic Brain Injury
(e.g., Anoxic brain injury,
Asphyxia, Birth hypoxia,
Hemiplegia, Hypoxic-ischemic
encephalopathy (HIE))

The Family Health Registry™ identifies which conditions are the most common and helps us target medical research.

The information is helping drive collaboration between CBR and researchers. These include research into:

AUTISM

CEREBRAL
PALSY

HEARING
LOSS

PEDIATRIC
STROKE
