What is Cord Blood?

Cord blood contains stem cells that can be used to help treat serious diseases later in one’s life. Cord blood is the blood collected from the umbilical cord of a newborn baby where there is a rich source of stem cells. These stem cells are similar to the stem cells found in an adult’s bone marrow; however the youth of the cells makes them able to replicate themselves for a longer period of time. Cord blood contains red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Most importantly, it contains a rich source of stem cells called “hematopoietic stem cells” or HSCs for short. These young stem cells are able to differentiate (change into other blood cells) & replicate themselves making HSCs the ideal choice or transplantation & disease treatment.

What can Cord Blood do?

As of today cord blood stem cells can undergo a process of transfusion to treat over 80 diseases including cancers, metabolic disorders, immune & blood related diseases. However, doctors see more potential & are currently researching the use of cord blood to treat other diseases including diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, & so much more. HealthBanks prides itself on not only being there for parents to help them store their child’s cord blood, but also for participating in the research to help find treatments for diseases.  To learn more about current & future treatments of stem cells from cord blood, click here.
