Today’s Uses,
Tomorrow’s Potential

For 30+ years, cord blood has been used for stem cell transplants, helping tens of thousands of people worldwide.106 What’s even more exciting is the future potential of newborn stem cells in regenerative medicine. Speak with a specialist to learn what this could mean for your family.

Potential Future Uses in Regenerative Medicine

Newborn stem cells are currently being studied for their role in regenerative medicine, an area of science that aims to restore or establish normal function in the body.

A bright future for cord blood

While still in research, we foresee a future where cord blood can be used in new approaches for things like:

  • Gene therapy135, 136
  • Help improve organ and tissue damage caused by age, disease, or trauma108
  • Slow the progression of degenerative diseases108

More possibilities with cord tissue

Cord tissue is home to mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), which are being researched for their ability to:

  • Reduce inflammation107
  • Modulate the immune system to help improve autoimmune disorders107, 108
  • Help improve organ and tissue damage caused by age, disease, or trauma108
