Stem cells are an integral part of our body because of their ability to develop into many different cell types. In many cases where a condition or disease affects cell tissue, stem cell therapies can be used to repair damaged tissue, repair organs, and cure disease.
Cord blood, cord tissue, and tooth pulp are abundant sources of these potentially life-saving stem cells. Currently, cord blood stem cells can be used in therapies and transplants to treat more than 85 diseases, including bone marrow cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, and anemia. In addition, there are over 5,000 clinical studies using stem cell therapies.
Stem cell storage services are a fantastic way to store your precious cells in a laboratory, ready for possible treatments 20+ years in the future. If you decide to preserve your child’s umbilical cord or tooth pulp stem cells, you are taking steps to protect their health from the day they are born.
