What Is Cord Blood?

Cord blood is the blood found in the baby’s umbilical cord, it is a rich source of Haemopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs). These stem cells make up the building blocks in our blood and immune system throughout our life. A baby’s own cord blood guarantees a perfect match for him/her. The cord blood can also potentially increase the chances of having a match for his/her siblings and parents.

What can Cord Blood do?

The HSCs in Cord Blood can develop into all types of blood cells. These Stem Cells are similar to those found in an adult’s bone marrow and are clinically proven to be used in the treatment of more than 80 diseases1, such as blood disorders, certain childhood & blood cancers, metabolic disorders and immunodeficiency syndrome.

Doctors believe there is more potential, and research is ongoing to use Cord Blood to treat other diseases including Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Strokes, and more. By storing your baby’s Cord Blood today, you will be able to tap on the new and ongoing medical advances in Regenerative Therapy and Cell & Gene Therapy.

5 Benefits Of Storing Your Child's Cord Blood

1

A 100% match for your baby

2

Eliminates difficulties in finding a compatible donor

3

The sample is readily available, meaning no treatment delays and any potential disease progression can be avoided

4

It has the potential to be used as treatment options for family members

5

Cord Blood from a related donor will result in fewer complications and improved medical outcomes

Did You Know?

Cord Blood transplants have been around for over 30 years2, with the world’s first Cord Blood transplant taking place in October 19883.

Did You Know?

Cord Blood has been used in over 40,000 transplants4 worldwide.

Did You Know?

About 7 million5 children around the world have their Cord Blood in private storage.


How are Cord Blood Stem Cells being used today?

Your baby’s Cord Blood Stem Cells have the potential to change lives, and treat a host of cancers, blood diseases and disorders for the entire family.

Using Your Baby’s Cord Blood

An autologous transplant, or transplant where the patient is their own donor, will have a lower risk of life-threatening complications. There is no risk of graft versus host disease (GVHD) and no need for the patient to undergo immunosuppressive therapy.

Autologous Treatment

Where the patient receives his/her own stem cells.

Allogeneic Treatment

Patient receives stem cells from a matching donor. Probability of a match is much higher among siblings and direct family members.
