What is cord blood?
The term "cord blood" is used to describe the blood that remains in the umbilical cord and the placenta after the birth of a baby. Up until recently this afterbirth was discarded as medical waste. After a baby is born,and the umbilical cord is clamped and cut, the blood left in the umbilical cord can be collected and the stem cells extracted and stored for potential use in a future medical applicationCord blood stem cells have incredible and immediate live-saving potential through treatments,  parents can save them for their own family or donate them to help others.

To date, adult stem cells, like those in umbilical cord blood, are the only stem cells to have ever produced medical treatments. Cord blood cells are used in the treatment of diseases, including a wide range ofcancers, genetic diseases, and blood disorders.  In a cord blood transplant, stem cells are infused in to a patient’s bloodstream where they go to work healing and repairing damaged cells and tissue.When a transplant is successful, a healthy new immune system has been created.
