Date:10/24/2011

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Heart repair.  Bone repair.  Spinal cord injuries.  Hearing loss. Traumatic brain injury.  Cerebral Palsy.  Diabetes.  Alzheimer's.  Cystic Fibrosis.  Leukemia, Sickle cell disease and other blood disorders.  Immune and metabolic disorders.

"These diseases or group of diseases are either currently being treated and cured with umbilical cord blood stem cells or there is clinical research ongoing in the U.S. and worldwide to use cord blood stem cells in treatment procedures," said Dr. Geoffrey O'Neill, Cord Blood America Vice President, Operations.  Cord Blood America, Inc. (www.cordblood-america.com) (OTC Bulletin Board: CBAI), is the umbilical cord blood stem cell preservation company focused on bringing the life saving potential of stem cells to families nationwide and internationally.

"Umbilical cord blood stem cells have been used in more than 15,000 transplants worldwide to treat acute and chronic childhood leukemia. These stem cells have proven to be curative in treating sickle cell disease and other blood disorders and have been used to treat certain immune and metabolic disorders, 75 diseases in all," Dr. O'Neill explained.  "This makes banking stem cells at birth an insurance policy for the child."

"Scientists believe these stem cells from the umbilical cord are capable of differentiating into many other cell types within the body to form new tissue and even organs.  That is why there is ongoing research using these stem cells aimed at the  treatment of diseases or conditions that are currently incurable," Cord Blood America's executive explained.  These include:
