Cord blood has been used for 20 years to treat more than 80 serious diseases.34 Successful treatments have paved the way for further research and today, FDA-regulated clinical trials are exploring the use of a child’s own stem cells for conditions that currently have no cure.
Several of these groundbreaking trials only use cord blood stem cells processed by Cord Blood Registry as a way of ensuring consistent quality. That means, saving with Cord Blood Registry gives families access to more uses and treatments.
Cord blood stem cells are currently being evaluated as potential treatment for:
- Acquired Hearing Loss
- Cerebral Palsy
- Pediatric Stroke

New Potential Treatments
CBR is advancing stem cell research by partnering with leading research institutions to establish FDA-regulated clinical trials, requiring CBR processed cord blood.
73% of the stem cell units CBR have released have been used for experimental regenerative therapies. More than any other cord blood storage facility in the world.
