Key Reasons that make
Umbilical Cord Blood special!
It is unique and 99% compatible with the childA biological substance that contains valuable cells we can collect only once in our life and is 99% compatible with the child (donor).
Safe collection of umbilical cord bloodCord Blood collection is a painless process that may be performed at the same time the umbilical cord is cut without any risk for the mother or baby.
Stem cells: Young and healthyUnlike adult stem cells from other sources, those from umbilical cord blood, do not have an environmental burden, are have not been exposed to diseases and have a high proliferation rate because of their young age. For these reasons, cord blood stem cells have been characterized as "privileged".
Lower risk of complications after transplant in relativesA study of patients that received a sibling’s umbilical cord blood or bone marrow graft, found that recipients of umbilical cord blood transplants were 59% less likely to develop serious adverse events (GVHD - Graft Versus Host Disease).
Future treatmentsCord blood is used in hundreds of clinical studies and trials for diseases and syndromes such as malignancies of the blood, breast and colon, autism, cerebral palsy, Parkinson's disease, ischemic strokes, spinal cord injuries and more.
