Cord Blood Benefits & Treatments

Considering the expanding number of ways in which cord blood stem cells are used to treat many illnesses and injuries, there is a significant chance that your children will use some or all of their stored umbilical cord blood sample in their lifetime.

Clinical Trials Using Cord Blood Stem Cells

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy (CP) results from brain injury or oxygen deprivation before or during birth, or in early childhood. It can hinder movement, learning, hearing, vision, and cognitive abilities. “Cerebral” relates to the brain, while “palsy” refers to muscle weakness or usage difficulties. CP stands as the most prevalent motor disability in childhood.


Autism, also known as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), is a multifaceted condition characterized by diverse signs and symptoms. While no two individuals with autism are identical, they may share challenges in language and social interaction. Researchers aim to discover treatments that can soothe this hyperactive immune response, potentially safeguarding the developing brains of children with autism.

Hearing Loss

Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is a distinct form of hearing impairment attributed to inner ear damage or dysfunction, as opposed to other ear structures. Acquired SNHL can arise from premature birth, infections, or exposure to loud noise or specific medications, leading to irreversible harm to the delicate hair cells (cilia) in the inner ear.

Cord Blood Facts

More than 304 children have been treated with cord blood stem cells for cerebral palsy by 2009.

More than 30 years after the 1st cord blood transplant in 1988, the patient is alive & doing well.

More than 40,000 cord blood transplants have been performed internationally.

47% of privately banked cord blood releases have been for use in regenerative therapies.
