Why Umbilical Cord Preservation?
Banking the umbilical cord right after delivery represents a unique and once-in-a-lifetime chance to preserve the richest source of Haematopoietic (blood) and Mesenchymal (tissue) stem cells.
The Umbilical Cord Blood is the most reliable and rich source of Haematopoietic stem cells. It is a potent cocktail of stem cells, combined with growth factors and hormones used by the foetus to develop into a full grown baby.
The Wharton’s jelly found in the umbilical cord tissue is a rich source of Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).The uniqueness of these cells lies in the universality of usage.Using one’s own Mesenchymal stem cells for treatment is a potentially a new treatment for the future.
