The science of umbilical cord tissue is new and exciting. Your newborn’s umbilical cord tissue contains different types of cells than those found in cord blood and is a rich source of mesenchymal stem cells. 7 These cells are thought to be capable of different things than the primary stem cell found in cord blood, and a wealth of research is currently underway to explore their possible roles in future therapies. 1
Cord tissue stem cells are currently being studied for use in the treatment of:
As the science of stem cells grows, more and more excitement is building around potential treatments that involve cord tissue—especially those that use the unique properties of mesenchymal cells.7 Storing your baby’s cord blood and tissue may mean more therapeutic options that could impact your family in the future.
Storing your baby’s stem cells may allow you to participate in a larger health movement—regenerative medicine—that could help make your baby’s generation its healthiest. By storing your newborn’s stem cells with Evercord, you may have the opportunity to participate in exciting new research. New clinical trials have already launched, in part, because families have access to their banked newborn’s stem cells.
Newborn stem cells can help heal the body by promoting recovery and offer an enormous amount of therapeutic potential. 7 Stem cells from cord blood are unique in several ways: 1,6,7
There are nearly 80 proven uses for cord blood today. Many transplants have saved the lives of patients with cancers and genetic disorders. There are many clinical trials using cord blood or cord tissue that may provide new proven uses as research progresses. The stem cells found in cord blood have been used in therapies to treat the following diseases: 1,69,78
