Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cells
|Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cells||
Stem cells from the blood of the umbilical cord or placenta after the birth of a baby. These cells have the potential to produce all the components of blood in the same manner as stem cells derived from bone marrow. Umbilical cord blood cells are not embryonic. No harm occurs to the child or mother during the collection process; meanwhile the cord blood can help save others' lives.
