"The 5th ITERA Life-Sciences Consortium Symposium took place in Maastricht, the Netherlands, and showcased the progress of stem cell research and promising therapeutic applications. Thanks to solid scientific data, researchers confirmed that umbilical cord blood stem cells are one of the prime sources to be used in current stem cell transplants, ongoing research and future regenerative medicine.
Cord blood is one of the prime sources for stem cells, more and more used for stem cell transplants"
I think this solidifies that cord blood stem cells will be the future in treating diseases. The ability these cells have are amazing. If you bank your child's umbilical cord blood, it is a 100% MATCH for that child and a higher chance of a match for closely related siblings or family members. This is a great day for cord blood stem cells!!!
