Donating cord blood for research


Continuous biomedical research on cord blood increases our knowledge about current blood stem cell transplantation practices, as well as the current processes for collecting, manufacturing and storing cord blood. In addition, blood stem cells obtained from cord blood are being investigated in the development of new treatments for many diseases. Such stem cell research provides hope for more safe and effective medical therapies in the future. Other biomedical research, which does not relate to blood stem cells, may also be undertaken with cord blood and lead to new discoveries that may improve medical care in the future.
