If you are planning to store your baby’s umbilical cord blood for future illness, then you mustn’t think about it.
According to pediatricians, it’s improbable that you’ll ever need this kind of biological insurance but by offering your baby’s cord blood, you might save someone else’s life.
Umbilical cord blood is saturated with stem cells. These are functional in a similar way to bone marrow, where transplanting may help in counteracting diseases like cancer.
But in here, (cord blood), the stem cells are younger and portable to transplant into non relatives and so can be thawed more quickly than bone marrow.
This is really a new thing that I come across, did any of you knew this before?
