The Future of Stem Cells and Role of Stem Cell Bank

Future application of cord blood stem cells

The list of stem cell treatable diseases continues to grow at a rapid pace. With the potential to become different cell types, scientists are exploring the possibility of using cord blood stem cells to treat some of the most common life-threatening diseases such as heart diseases and stroke. Thus, saving your baby’s cord blood now can ensure your child's access to his/her own stem cells for such cellular therapy in the future.

Current most commonly researched stem cell treatments:

Repair nerve cells Repair nerve cells:
to heal brain and spinal cord injuries or brain damage caused by stroke
Regenerate cells to form new blood vessels Regenerate cells to form new blood vessels:
to treat heart and circulatory disease
Replace damaged cells Replace damaged cells:
to improve recovery from cardiovascular diseases, a heart attack, or injury
Regenerate brain cells Regenerate brain cells:
to treat brain injury, cerebral palsy and Parkinson’s disease
