Stem cells are the body’s raw materials – cells from which all other cells with specialized functions are created. Stem cells have the ability to differentiate into multiple kinds of cells (a muscle cell, a red blood cell or any other).
Cord blood and cord tissue is collected at the time of delivery. After a baby is born, cord blood is left in the umbilical cord and placenta. It is relatively easy to collect, with no risk to the mother or baby. It contains stem cells. Cord blood and cord tissue stem cells have the special quality of being the purest and youngest tissue-specific stem cells you can collect and function more quickly and effectively than adult stem cells from other sources.
Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine designed to repair damaged cells within the body by reducing inflammation and modulating the immune system. This phenomenon makes stem cell therapy a viable treatment option for a variety of medical conditions.
