Term / Umbilical Cord or “Cord Blood” Cells
Stem cells collected from the umbilical cord and placenta of a newborn and stored for future use. Cord blood stem cells are capable of producing all blood cell types and are currently used in transplant medicine to regenerate healthy blood and immune systems. Cord blood “banking” preserves the cells for potential treatment of more than 80 known diseases and disorders. Banked cord blood cells are specific to the child, but may be donated to treat others.
