Essential Cells

When your baby is born, his or her cord blood and tissue contain stem cells. These "master cells" can heal the body, promote recovery, and offer an enormous amount of therapeutic potential.

Stem Cell Uses

There are many uses for stem cells and researchers are working to discover more.

Current Treatments
Cord blood stem cells are used in the treatment of 80 diseases, often for siblings or other family members, including various cancers, blood disorders, immune disorders, and metabolic disorders.81

Future Potential
Cord blood and cord tissue have potential applications in emerging therapies for injuries, neurological damage, tissue regeneration and more for the child's own use and related family members.82

A Genetic Match

Your baby is a 100% match to his or her stem cells and may be a match for a sibling. It's good to save every child's stem cells because some conditions require one’s own stem cells, while other conditions need donor cells.*

*Siblings of the same biological parents have a 25% chance of being a perfect match and a 50% chance of being a partial match; biological parents will always be a partial match.

Too Valuable to Waste

Cord blood stem cells play a vital role in new areas of medicine with proven treatments today and FDA-regulated clinical studies for conditions that have no cure. We’re only beginning to understand its potential. If it’s not collected at birth, your child’s cord blood will be discarded and unavailable for public or personal use.
