20 Dec Benefits of Cord Blood Stem Cells
Medical professionals harvest cord blood stem cells from the umbilical cord and the placenta blood after birth. Unlike embryonic stem cells, cord blood stem cells do not present risks to the child and mother as extraction is only done after the birth of a child.
Cord blood stem cells are extremely beneficial in the treatment of many medical conditions, including certain types of cancers, and anemia. There are also several clinical studies looking into how they can be used to treat Type 1 diabetes and cerebral palsy.
Besides its extensive use base, cord blood stem cells are readily available in large supplies and present almost no risk to patients. Here are some of the many potentials of cord blood stem cells.
Readily Available and Inexpensive
Every day, around 400,000 children are born around the world, over 10,000 in the United States alone. This presents an almost infinite amount of cord blood stem cells. The umbilical cord gives about ten times the number of stem cells extracted from the bone marrow. So, availability is one of the biggest advantages of cord blood stem cells.
Potential to Treat Many Blood Disorders
Like adult stem cells, cord blood stem cells encourage the repair or replacement of damaged and diseased cells. These natural repair mechanisms can spur recovery from many medical conditions by encouraging cellular regrowth and regeneration.
Stem cell therapy using cord blood stem cells is only approved for the treatment of disorders that affect the blood-forming system. Patients with disorders such as leukemia, sickle cell disease, and lymphoma can benefit from the regenerative potentials of cord blood stem cells.
Presents Less Chance of Rejection
Researchers have found that cord blood stem cells present greater chances of rejection than adult cells. They are relatively young and pure and have not bonded to another system. So, the body almost never rejects them. You can also preserve your baby’s cord blood stem cells through cryopreservation for use at a later date.
Low Chance of Infection
With adult stem cells, there is the risk of injecting diseased stem cells into the body, especially if you are using an unprofessional clinic. This is not the case in our San Francisco stem cell treatment center. Our team of professional stem cell doctors properly screen all stem cells for diseases and defects. Whether you are using your own stem cells or donor cord blood stem cells, or adult stem cells, you can be sure that you can be certain that everything will be carried out professionally, without complications.
Presents no Risk to the Mother and Child
Many medical professionals, scientists, and researchers recognize the extraordinary potentials of embryonic stem cells. But the procedure harms the lab-grown fetuses from the stem cells being extracted. This is not the case with cord blood stem cells. The extraction of cord blood stem cells is completely postnatal. The mother and bay remain completely safe, and the extracted cord stems can be used to save another person.
