Common questions

Stem cells are the body's "master cells" because they are the building blocks of organ tissues, blood, and the immune system. Stem cells from bone marrow were first used to regenerate blood and immune cells for patients who had received chemotherapy for cancer. In the late 1980s, doctors started using cord blood stem cells to treat diseases that had previously been treated with bone marrow transplantation.

Today, cord blood stem cells are successfully being used to save lives. They also are being researched in an exciting new area of medicine called regenerative medicine, where scientists are studying the use of cord blood stem cells in experimental treatments for conditions like brain injury and acquired hearing loss.

There are two primary types of newborn stem cells that have the potential to be used for different treatments: hematopoietic (he•ma•to•poi•et•ic) and mesenchymal (mes•en•chy•mal). Hematopoietic stem cells are blood-forming cells with the ability to self-renew. Mesenchymal stem cells can form bone, cartilage, and tissue cells and are predominantly found in the cord tissue. Cord blood predominantly contains hematopoietic stem cells and cord tissue primarily contains mesenchymal stem cells.

Regenerative medicine is a new approach to treatment. It's all about establishing normal function in the body through exciting areas such as gene therapies, tissue engineering, and cell-based therapies, which stem cells play a vital role in. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has identified the value of this cutting-edge approach and stated that "regenerative medicine is a rapidly growing field of biomedicine that will revolutionize health care treatment." In fact, it's estimated that 1 in 3 people in the U.S. may benefit from a regenerative therapy in their lifetime.

You have 3 options to save your baby's cord blood:
  1. Family banking: Your baby's cord blood is stored for a fee for exclusive use by your family.
  2. Newborn Possibilities Program®: CBR offers cord blood and cord tissue collection, processing, and storage at no cost for five years when a family member has been diagnosed with a condition that can be treated with stem cells.
  3. Public donation: Your baby's cord blood is donated anonymously for potential use by a patient who needs a transplant. You must give birth in a participating hospital.

If you choose not to bank or donate, your baby's cord blood is discarded at the hospital.

Banking cord blood can change or even save a life. Cord blood stem cells have certain advantages over bone marrow stem cells in transplant, and have been used for 20 years to treat more than 80 life-threatening diseases and disorders. Today stem cell therapies continue to evolve, bringing new hope to patients and their families.

Below are just a few diseases and disorders that have been treated with cord blood stem cells. If you have stem cell treatment questions, please click here to request more information

Cancer
  • Acute Leukemia
  • Chronic Leukemia
  • High-Risk Solid Tumors
  • Hodgkin & Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
  • Myelodysplastic Syndromes
Blood disorders
  • Aplastic Anemia
  • Beta Thalassemia
  • Diamond-Blackfan Anemia
  • Fanconi Anemia
  • Sickle Cell Disease
Immune disorders
  • Chronic Granulomatous Disease
  • Hystiocytic Disorders
  • Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency
  • Severe Combined Immunodeficiency Diseases
  • Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome
Metabolic disorders
  • Krabbe Disease
  • Hurler Syndrome
  • Metachromatic Leukodystrophy
  • Sanfilippo Syndrome

Preserving cord blood stem cells makes them available for your family, while donating cord blood stem cells makes them available to others to treat diseases like those listed above. For inherited genetic conditions, the child may not be able to use his or her own stem cells. In these cases, a matched sibling's stem cells would be the first choice. Only family banking also offers access to current regenerative medicine clinical trials in autism, cerebral palsy, and pediatric stroke.

"For all the parents out there considering preserving their newborn stem cells, I can't stress how important it is… we're so happy we did this."

Sarah Huber, Grace's mom

Grace was born with a condition called sensorineural hearing loss. Because her parents preserved her newborn stem cells with CBR, she was connected to a clinical trial through the Family Health Registry.
