Why Bank Cord Tissue
Store Today, Protect Tomorrow
In addition to cord blood banking, you now have the opportunity to bank stem cells from your baby's umbilical cord tissue.
Cord tissue is a source of many cell types, including mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Researchers have discovered that MSCs will play a major role in future clinical therapies using Regenerative Medicine. This research holds the promise of regenerating damaged tissues and organs by stimulating the body to heal itself.
Trials are underway using MSCs to treat debilitating conditions such as heart disease, stroke, liver disease, Parkinson's disease, and spinal cord injury.
To date, both private and public entities have contributed a combined
$4 billion to research Regenerative Medicine therapies.
