Cord blood contains infinite number of stem cells. Stem cells are very useful because they are able to regenerate by themselves. They can grow into various parts of the body because they have a natural ability to build up new tissues matching up with any of the different organs. Stem cells collected from the umbilical cord and placenta are the easiest to find.
The first cord blood stem cells were used to treat a child in France who was on a death toll due to anaemia. The transplant procedure was successful and that led to the utilization of various stem cells including those collected from the placenta and umbilical cord. So many life-threatening diseases have been able to be addressed or at least controlled.
Stem cells are not only able to cure fatal diseases but they are used to create new organs. This means if you are having diabetes, for example, and one of your toes needs to be removed, you can actually get a replacement for the toe. Stem cells are able to grow into many types of organs such as the ears, fingers, toes and even the internal organs. Additionally, stem cells are able to repair internal organs including body tissues and muscles.
Today it has become easier to treat heart diseases, brain disorders and anything generated from blood disorders. It means you can also make sure that your whole family is protected from these diseases with the help of stem cells.
