A cautionary note about cord blood and tissue research
Newborn stem cell research offers hope to many who are ill or concerned about risk factors. And research advancements provide valuable insight on the quest to answer, ‘Does it work?’, even when it doesn’t. The transfer of knowledge from lab to bedside takes time and the journey to validated findings is one of endurance, not speed. Rest assured, at ViaCord we ‘think big’ about the potential of cord blood and cord tissue stem cells and are committed to pushing the science forward. By collaborating with renowned academic institutions and participating in well-designed studies, we work hard to put babies and families in the best possible position for a healthy outcome.
