World Cord Blood Day

In honour of the world day dedicated to cord blood (17 November): so that every day may be the day dedicated to this priceless resource

Umbilical cord blood is the blood that remains in your baby’s umbilical cord after they are born. This blood is a valuable source of stem cells with unique biological and immunological characteristics.

Umbilical cord blood stem cells are currently the routine treatment for over 85 diseases and conditions, such as leukaemia, lymphoma, anaemia, and many more.

Why save cord blood:
 Cord blood is a potent and non-controversial source of stem cells.
 Cord blood is not controversial or unethical in any way because it is only collected post-birth.
 Cord blood has no political or religious issues.
 Collection of cord blood poses no risks to the mother or baby and does not interfere with the birthing process.
 Cord blood stem cells are currently being used to treat and cure more than 85 life-threatening illnesses, including many cancers, immune deficiencies and genetic disorders.

Moreover, don’t forget about umbilical cord tissue which, like the cord blood, is a rich source of stem cells with properties of repair and regeneration.

Umbilical cord tissue stem cells are very effective in regenerative medicine due to their ability to form various tissues (bone, muscle, cartilage, etc.) and their anti-inflammatory properties.
