Treatments

Modern-day research of stem cell therapies and treatments continues to provide hope to patients and their families by offering new scientific breakthroughs and medical insights.

Since 2007, the list of treatable diseases by using stem cells has doubled in number and today, stem cells from cord blood are used to treat over 80 diseases including cancers, blood disorders, immune disorders and metabolic disorders. The ongoing investment in clinical trials worldwide aims to increase this number further in the future.

Cancers

  • Acute Leukemia
  • Chronic Leukemia
  • High-Risk Solid Tumors
  • Hodgkin’s & Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  • Myelodysplastic Syndrome

Blood disorders

  • Beta Thalassemia
  • Diamond-Blackfan Anemia
  • Fanconi Anemia
  • Severe Aplastic Anemia
  • Sickle Cell Disease

Immune disorders

  • Chronic Granulomatous Disease
  • Hystiocytic Disorders
  • Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency
  • Severe Combined Immunodeficiency Diseases
  • Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome

Metabolic disorders

  • Krabbe Disease
  • Hurler Syndrome
  • Metachromatic Leukodystrophy
  • Sanflippo Syndrome

How can cord blood be used tomorrow?

As cord blood stem cell research advances, so does the potential for future uses. There are a number of experimental therapies that may not have seemed possible 15 years ago which are being explored today in FDA regulated clinical trials. These include:

  • Brain injury
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Type 1 Diabetes
  • Hearing loss
  • Autism
