Why it is worth storing?Baby’s cord blood storage at Northway Stem Cell Bank is your insurance in case of serious health disorders.
Cord blood is the blood collected from your baby‘s umbilical cord. The cord blood is rich in stem cells, particularly in those cells that can grow into tissues, organs and blood vessels. Your baby’s umbilical cord blood stem cells are closely linked to your baby and your family on a genetic level. Stem cells are unique in their capability to participate in the development of all tissues, organs and body systems.
Stem cells can “transform” into another type of cells, thus creating a new growing and developing tissue. Stem cells are also the “building blocks” of the immune system. The ability of stem cells to divide into specialized cells provides doctors with another way of treating such blood disorders as leukaemia, including various inherited health disorders. Stem cells can be used in the treatment of many diseases. In the United States and Europe, stem cells are used in controlled clinical trials aiming to help people with autism, cerebral disorders and other severe conditions.
Stem cells collected from baby’s cord blood can also be used in the treatment of some brothers’ and sisters’ diseases. Stem cells from the umbilical cord blood can treat diseases just as cells from bone marrow can, but with a lower probability of rejection. Storage of baby’s umbilical cord blood stem cells is like an “insurance policy” from painful surprises. Ideally, you may not need to use your baby’s cord blood stem cells in the treatment of your family’s health disorders. But if you come upon trouble, you will feel safe knowing that Northway Stem Cell Bank stores a valuable source of health and you will be able to use it.
