Storing cord blood since 1997

     

Human umbilical cord blood, or "cord blood," as it is commonly referred to, contains an unusually rich supply of stem cells. Stem cells are the "mother of the blood cells". These stem cells produce the red, white and immune cells that make up your blood.

Stem cells found in cord blood have been used to save the lives of individuals with various types of leukemias and anemias, including, most recently, sickle-cell anemia.

Bone marrow is another source of stem cells and is used to help cure individuals with blood disorders. However, bone marrow has its disadvantages which include:
Bone marrow is extremely difficult to match.
Often bone marrow carries with it infections the donor has previously contracted. Graft vs. host disease (GVHD) is the leading cause of mortality in bone marrow transplantation.
Bone marrow is frequently rejected by the individual's own immune system.
For these reasons, many have turned to the use of cord blood.
