Cord Blood America Provides Insight on Worldwide Research Using Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cells to Treat Numerous Diseases
Date:10/24/2011

ir:  Scientists envision the use to cord blood stem cells to repair defective heart valves in babies and as an effective way to treat damaged heart muscle in heart attack victims.
  • Traumatic brain injury:  A U.S. Food & Drug Administration approved study has been launched to use a child's own stored umbilical cord blood in the treatment of traumatic brain injury.  Research elsewhere in the world is examining the usefulness of stem cells to treat victims of stroke.
  • Bone repair:  Scientists are examining the use of tissue-engineered bone, made with the use of cord blood stem cells, in regenerative medicine focused on bone repair.  U.S. scientists have created a tissue-engineered jaw bone.
  • Spinal cord injury:  Stem cells from a human newborn umbilical cord have been shown to improve the function of laboratory rats after an acute spinal cord injury, showing  significant improvement in mobility and cognitive function.  Scientists worldwide are studying the potential use of cord blood stem cells for nerve repair.
  • Hearing loss:  Cord blood stem cells are being studied by scientists for the treatment of hearing impairment.  Animals which have been treated with these stem cells have shown significant healing in the inner ear.
  • Diabetes, Parkinson's Disease, Cerebral Palsy, Cystic Fibrosis, Alzheimer's:  Laboratory, animal and other research is ongoing in developing treatments using umbilical cord blood stem cells in the treatment of these diseases, all of which are presently incurable.

  • "We believe that as research continues, and a breakthrough is made in one or more of these disease states, the value of storing umbilical cord blood stem cells at birth will increase exponentially," Dr. O'Neill said.  "Based on the research results to date, we believe that day is sooner rather than later."
