Importance of cord blood stem cells

The transplants of stem cells found in the cord have been successful in almost all the patients who have gone through this treatment. These stem cells have the power to transform into any type of organ like heart, neural cells and even the liver. Still the scientist is researching on it to see how many other benefits can be taken from the stem cells that are derived from the umbilical cord blood. These stem cells are also capable of repairing damaged tissues when a person gets a heart attack or strokes.

The cord tissues are rich in stem cells that are very helpful in treating childhood leukemia for years. Many have been saved with this treatment. Chemotherapy can control cancer for certain time but to get rid of it you need to go through stem cell transplant that will help in building new tissues and organs thus getting rid of the old one. So the patient gets a new life and recovers fast. It is one of the safest and best ways to recover someone suffering from diseases related to heart, kidney, liver and the immunity. It will give you the strength to recover soon and give you a normal life like before.

Seeing the advancement and usage of cord tissue stem cells the future seems to be even brighter. The awareness of preserving the cord blood is increasing and all parents understand the importance of this in their lives. If this was known to us before we would have a lot more stem cells to save many lives and would have saved those who died because they didn't find a donor. It is time for all to understand its importance and to save the cord blood. If you want to keep your child's life secure for future this one of the best ways and this is one way to also help those who need it. You can also donate it if you feel you don't need. It will help someone else. Don't waste it like it was done in the past. You never know when you need it. So save umbilical cord stem cells.
