About Cord Blood Stem Cells
Umbilical Cord stem cells contain blood stem cells that are especially helpful to the immune system. Transplants of these stem cells from cord stem cells can be used to treat various blood diseases. After a baby is born, cord blood is left in the umbilical cord and placenta, which is easy to collect with no risk to either the mother or the baby. Some reports even suggest that Umbilical Cord stem cells can produce specialized cells that don’t belong to the blood but are also nerve cells. Another valuable thing found in umbilical stem cells is Wharton’s Jelly. This is a gelatinous substance that offers protection in the umbilical cord. Wharton’s jelly has been proven to help cartilage repair in the knee.
