The Stem Cell Bank at the University of Colorado, an FDA-licensed cord blood manufacturer and family cord banking service has cord blood transplant experience you can rely on, with more than 750 units released since 1998. These cord blood units have been shipped to many countries (over 120), including: the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Germany, New Zealand, Austria, France, Brazil, Argentina, Denmark, the United Kingdom, and more. It is clear that there have been many benefits to umbilical cord blood banking, as these transplants have been used to treat many different diseases. A few common ones include Hodgkin’s lymphoma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, acute myelogenous leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, prolymphocytic leukemia, and more. In fact, the stem cells collected by family cord blood services can be used to treat more than 80 diseases, with scientists continually researching new possible treatments.

One of the future potential uses that scientists are researching right now pertains to umbilical cord tissue banking, which involves collecting a section of the umbilical cord of a newborn, rather than just the cord blood contained within. While the cord tissue benefits are not yet available for use on humans, trials are underway to determine the effectiveness of cord tissue for potential future use. In the same way that umbilical cord blood banking was not common 25 years ago (but is becoming more prevalent as we discover the many uses of cord blood), there are likely great potential cord tissue benefits that have yet to be discovered. By making the cost of cord tissue banking affordable, CariCord makes saving your child’s umbilical cord tissue a good decision. It could have many benefits down the road, should it become available for human treatments.

Umbilical cord blood banking, our most popular service, is available now, and has been used to treat many diseases that might have otherwise gone untreated had the stem cells found in cord blood not been collected and stored by cord blood banking companies like CariCord. We have the experience you can rely on to safely and painlessly collect and store your child’s cord blood or cord tissue for potential future use. Give us a call today to learn more about our process that has been utilized in more than 750 instances.
