Cord of Life

Have you ever heard of a medical breakthrough regarding curing of certain diseases using stem cells? The research regarding the use of stem cells to cure diseases is currently in its early stage. But the possibilities for future medication is very promising that parents or soon to be parents must know the benefits and other use of stem cells present in the Cord Blood or umbilical cord blood, the blood that remains inside the umbilical cord and placenta of a baby at the time of birth.

Stem cells are cells found in most, if not all, multi-cellular organism. They are characterized by the ability to renew themselves through mitotic cell division and differentiating into a diverse range of specialized cell types. Research in the stem cell field grew out of findings by Canadian scientists Ernest A. McCulloh and James E. Till in the 1960s (Wikipedia.org)

The Value of Cord Blood will only be clear if we are to study its advantages compared to bone marrow. Cord Blood is easy to extract rather than bone marrow, the matching is perfect because it came from your baby's umbilical cord, and the risk of negative effects of general anesthesia and operation during transplant of stem cells from bone marrow are removed.

Treating Diseases with Stem Cells can be notice in a medical operation of repairing damage tissues, such as cardiac tissues and nervous tissues that are present in the organs of circulatory system and nervous system.

If there is a Blood Bank , there is also a Cord Blood Bank. And Cryo-Cell Cord Blood Bank is pioneering the research to store and preserve stem cells in Cord Blood for future medical use of your child.
