America's first private cord blood bank using advanced cryopreservation technology to  preserve your baby's cord blood stem cells




The uses for stem cells in different treatment therapies are increasing every day. In addition to the already documented present uses for stem cells, researchers are anticipating their use in treatments for; diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and muscular dystrophy. As the causes of more diseases are discovered, it is projected by researchers that the uses for cord blood stem cell transplantation will undoubtedly increase.

* While umbilical cord blood technology holds promise with respect to the treatment of various diseases, the technology is experimental in nature. Although the potential use of umbilical cord blood is expanding rapidly, the odds that a family without a defined risk will require the use of their child's umbilical cord blood are low. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that the umbilical cord blood will be a match to a family member. As with any transplant therapy, therapeutic success depends upon many factors beyond the stem cells themselves including patient condition, type of disease, recipient-donor relationship and matching.
