Thanks to the parents who save their newborns’ cord blood, the Ob/Gyns who collect, and the physicians and researchers who use it, cord blood is changing the face of medicine.
Cord blood stem cells have been used to treat more than 80 diseases, from leukemias and anemias to immune and metabolic disorders. Today, even more treatment options are being evaluated in cutting-edge, FDA-regulated clinical trials. This growing number of potential uses means more medical options for your family later.
