Banking your child’s cord blood stem cells can change or even save a life.

The lifesaving power of the umbilical cord blood is no longer a secret. Cord blood stem cells are a better alternative to bone marrow in transplants, and have been used for 20 years to treat more than 80 life-threatening diseases and disorders.

Today stem cell therapies continue to evolve, bringing new hope to patients and their families. Below are just a few diseases and disorders that have been treated successfully with cord blood stem cells:

Acute Leukemia
Chronic Leukemia
High-Risk Solid Tumors
Hodgkin & Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
Myelodysplastic Syndromes

Blood Disorders
Aplastic Anemia
Beta Thalassemia
Diamond-Blackfan Anemia
Fanconi Anemia
Sickle Cell Disease

Immune Disorders
Chronic Granulomatous Disease
Histiocytic Disorders
Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency
Severe Combined Immunodeficiency Diseases
Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome

Metabolic Disorders
Krabbe Disease
Hurler Syndrome
Metachromatic Leukodystrophy
Sanfilippo Syndrome

Saving or donating cord blood stem cells makes them available to treat diseases like those listed above. For inherited genetic conditions, the patient may not be able to use his or her own stem cells. In these cases, a matched sibling’s stem cells would be the first choice. Family banking also offers access to current regenerative medicine clinical trials in autism, traumatic brain injury, and cerebral palsy.
