Benefits of Cord Blood Banking

Benefits of cord blood banking

Cord blood transplant is a type of stem cell transplant where the source of stem cells is from the umbilical cord. This treatment modality has been proven to treat more than 80 diseases* including bone marrow disorder, blood cancers, solid cancers, certain types of glycogen storage diseases and immunodeficiencies.

Stem cells have also been used to treat many organ failures in the form of Regenerative Therapy. This is an emerging treatment modality where stem cells can potentially regenerate damaged organs or repair tissues. Examples of disorders where stem cells can be used to regenerate organs include cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, juvenile diabetes, diabetes, heart disease, spinal cord injuries and stroke.

Take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to save your baby’s cord blood instead of throwing it away.

Your baby’s genetically unique stem cells offers many advantages if stem cells are ever needed for treatment by you, your child, siblings, or other family members as it is:

1

Immediately available for treatment and early treatment can minimise disease progression.

2

Better than using an unrelated donor’s cord blood for a transplant due to fewer complications and improved medical outcomes.

3

A perfect match for your child and a higher potential match for your family members, as compared to an unrelated donor’s cord blood.
Note: Banking cord blood does not guarantee that the cells will provide a cure or be applicable for every situation. The treating physician will determine the ultimate use. There is no guarantee that the umbilical cord blood will be a match for a family member or will provide a cure. Autologous cord blood stem cells will not guarantee suitable treatment for all inherited genetic diseases. As with any transplant therapy, therapeutic success depends upon many factors beyond the stem cells themselves including patient condition, type of disease, recipient-donor relationship and matching, and other factors. The use of cord blood stem cells for emerging treatments is experimental. Please consult your physician.
