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), the cells that show considerable promise in the field of Regenerative Medicine. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services states that Regenerative Medicine is a revolutionary approach that focuses on curing conditions as opposed to treating them. Regenerative Medicine has the potential to regenerate damaged tissues and organs by stimulating the body to heal itself. Trials are under way using MSCs to treat debilitating conditions such as autism, brain injury (including stroke), burn wounds, heart disease, lung injury, liver disease, and sports injury.
FamilyCord is the first private cord blood bank in California with its own state of the art laboratory and custom-built cleanroom.
Stem cell research continues to push the boundaries of personalized medicine and provides valuable insight into new medical therapies. Although the transition from research to therapy takes time and perseverance, FamilyCord is committed to scientific advancement. Our medical and scientific team works closely with renowned institutions to provide our clients with the best stem cell treatments.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, “Regenerative medicine is a revolutionary approach that focuses on curing conditions as opposed to treating them. Regenerative medicine empowers doctors with the ability to replace damaged tissue in patients with healthy organic tissue.”
