Umbilical cord blood and tissue-based therapies

Umbilical cord blood despite collected in very small volume, it contains millions of a specific type of the adult stem cell that can go on to form the blood and immune system. Because cord blood and cord tissue are each rich in a different type of stem cell, it makes sense that they would serve as treatments for different diseases or conditions. Both the hematopoietic stem cells in the cord blood and the mesenchymal stem cells in the cord tissue can be used to help heal, regenerate, or otherwise treat a variety of conditions, but the conditions and diseases that they treat don’t often overlap. The potential future use of mesenchymal stem cells, like those in cord tissue, is still being reviewed in clinical trials, but the outcomes thus far have been very promising. They are being used to treat heart and kidney disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), autoimmune disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, wound healing and even sports injuries. Cord blood is a proven treatment for more than 80 diseases, and there are a number of exciting clinical trials underway for its use in other treatments. Cord tissue has an exciting future and shows great potential for the treatment of conditions which were once untreatable.
