Cord Blood Banking

Over the past decades, there is a phenomenal rise in advances in the field of medicine. The discovery that stem cells in the umbilical cord has a great potential in managing a wide range of otherwise difficult to treat diseases is one of the most promising. Cord blood banking now offers an insurance against potentially fatal diseases, since the blood from the umbilical cord is a rich source of undifferentiated and "privileged", meaning it has not been exposed to most diseases. Cord blood is collected from the umbilical cord just after giving birth with a special collection kit. Lots of parents have already opted to have this done because they are assured that their children will have access to their own stem cells for possible future use.
