Stem Cell Banking › Umbilical Cord – The Cord of Life
During pregnancy the umbilical cord is the child's lifeline. After birth that same cord can become the lifeline for the entire life.
While stem cells are found in different parts of our body, recent research has proven that umbilical cord is the richest source of stem cells.Cord lining contains unique and powerful stem cells that may repair and heal the body in different ways than cord blood.
These stem cells have demonstrated immense capability in aiding the repair of injured tissues and organs as well as regenerate them when they wither due to aging, illness or accident.
Diseases Treated with Cord Tissue:
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Crohn's disease
  • COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
  • Cardiac Arrhythmia
  • GVHD (Graft vs Host)
  • Ischemia
Why preserving umbilical Stem Cells, can be life saving
  • Once in a life time opportunity to protect/ insure your baby's future
  • Umbilical cord blood stem cells are genetically unique and are perfect genetic match for the same child. At the same time it may also be useful for siblings and/her/his parents
  • Umbilical cord blood stem cells are considered the 'freshest' and the 'youngest' stem cells available, thus decreasing risk of transmission of infectious diseases
  • These stem cells when preserved under cryogenic conditions have potentially no expiry date and hence have a lifetime of benefit
  • In transplants, umbilical cord stem cells pose a lower risk of rejection in transplants
  • Medical boon for the families having history of malignancies, blood related disorders or immune deficiency disorders
By storing cord blood and cord lining stem cells, you are preserving unique biological resources that are equivalent to a 'self-repair kit' for your child and possibly, other family members.
