Expecting a baby? Whether this child is your first or an addition to your family, you want to do everything you can to provide for your newborn’s well-being now and in the future. Cord blood and placenta blood and tissue banking provides you with the ability to collect and preserve potentially lifesaving stem cells and bank even more stem cells. This is accomplished by collecting them from two transplant ready sources of stem cell-rich blood: the umbilical cord and the placenta. And, doing so could one day save the life of your child or a close family member (blood relative).
This unique process of obtaining, collecting and preserving stem cells from both cord and placenta blood is called Placental and Cord Blood Banking, and it’s only available from LifebankUSA.
The Lifesaving Potential of Stem Cells with Cord Blood and Placenta Blood Banking
Physicians have treated more than 30,000 patients worldwide with cord blood stem cells through a process called hematopoietic reconstitution (the reformation of blood cellular components).1 And that’s just part of the story. Stem cells are also being studied in an emerging medical field called regenerative medicine.* This groundbreaking medical field involves repairing or replacing damaged tissues and organs and restoring their critical functions.*,2,3 Stem cells found in cord blood are being investigated for use in type 1 diabetes,4 spinal cord injury,5 Parkinson’s disease,6 cerebral palsy,6 muscular dystrophy,7 stroke,6,8 and many other diseases.
