The Power Of Stem Cells

Stem cells are regarded as an important biological resource, and researchers are conducting numerous studies to learn about their potential. So far, studies suggest that cord blood stem cells may help treat diseases like diabetes, heart and liver disease, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injury, and stroke.

There’s a possibility of stem cell expansion, which may someday enable families who have banked stem cells to use them for multiple treatments or donate stem cells to others.

Because of the possibilities, responsible parents are seeking balanced information about their cord blood banking options.
