What is cord blood?

The blood from the newborn that is still present in the placenta and umbilical cord after birth is known as cord blood. Hematopoietic stem cells, which are unique cells, are present in it and can be employed to cure certain disorders. Hematopoietic stem cells: What are they? Most cells can only duplicate themselves.

Curable with cord blood from the incurable

Diane Paradise discusses how a cord blood stem cell transplant was her last line of defense against a rare and incurable form of Hodgkin lymphoma. She continues to encourage people closest to her to privately bank their newborn's cord blood almost ten years after the transplant. 

Top 5 Cord Blood Myths Dispelled

To assist you, we have dispelled the top five myths about cord blood banking in our most recent blog. We want to inform our clients and assist you in defending what's most important to you. 

How Reliable Is Genetic Testing on Newborns?

Nearly four million kids are born in the US each year, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. In the first few days after birth, 98% of these newborns are reportedly evaluated for more than 30 different medical issues. Each state has its own regulations for newborn genomic screening (NBS), which is required by law. The availability of infant genetic testing has created ethical and legal questions about the procedures and justification for the test.

The View from Parents Regarding Cord Blood Banking

All expectant parents should be aware of their options for banking their children's umbilical cord stem cells, and we think it's vital for them to hear from other parents about their experiences. In order to address these concerns, we started our weekly Instagram Live series in observance of Cord Blood Awareness Month. We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Michael and Samantha Welch as part of our Cryo-Cell Chats series to ask them why they chose to store Vanessa's umbilical cord blood stem cells.

Hospitalization Costs Following UCB Transplants Compared to Other HCST Sources

To identify the optimal transplant outcome for a specific patient, the availability, affordability, post-transplant care, match quality, and possibility of grafting for each HCST source are carefully taken into account. It's critical for families to take into account the financial implications of a transplant surgery given the escalating cost of healthcare. So how expensive is cord blood compared to other sources for transplants? According to a study, compared to bone marrow and peripheral blood, umbilical cord blood transplants have reduced long-term healthcare expenses.

COVID-19 Umbilical Cord Tissue MSC Trials Research Radar

Umbilical cord tissue-specific mesenchymal stromal cells (UC-MSC) have unique qualities that make them an appealing research topic. Due to their naivety, these cells are not exposed to environmental contaminants and can expand more quickly than MSCs from other sources. These cells' capacities work best together to produce positive therapeutic outcomes in individuals with COVID-19-induced acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and comparable respiratory disorders.
