The power and potential of umbilical cord stem cells
Your baby's umbilical cord is a rich source of cells including hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) found in the cord blood and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) found in the cord tissue. These stem cells are unique cells that have the ability to help repair and heal the body. Today cord blood is being used for:
Proven Uses In Transplant Medicine
Cancers | Blood Disorders | Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes | Metabolic Disorders | Immune Disorders | Other
Clinical Research Trials
Autism | Cerebral Palsy | Brain Injury | Type 1 diabetes

How Are Cord Tissue Stem Cells Used Today?
Excitement about cord tissue's potential to help conditions affecting cartilage, muscle and nerve cells continues to grow.19 A significant amount of research is underway to better understand how cord tissue stem cells could play a role in future therapies. Researchers are also focusing on a wide range of potential treatment areas, including:
Type 1 diabetes
Sports injuries (cartilage)
