The New Paradigm of Medicine

Stem Cells found in cord blood and cord tissue represent the new paradigm of medicine. It is from these stem cells that the body can both boost its own immune system and regenerate damaged or deficient cells. These types of capabilities are what scientists and physicians are very excited about as modern medicine looks for answers to chronic diseases.

Cord Blood Research

There are over 1000 clinical trials (clinicaltrials.gov, as of July 7, 2015) that are utilizing Cord Blood to treat diseases ranging from autism, cerebral palsy, all the way to aging.

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy is the most common movement disorder in children1.

See CP Clinical Studies

Autism

From 2012 to 2014 the amount of children diagnosed with autism increased 30%.2,3,4

See Autism Clinical Studies

Aging

Globally 2 out of 3 deaths are from age-related causes, in industrialized nations it is closer to 90%.5

Cord Tissue Research

Stem cells from cord tissue have the power to regenerate other cells, as well as structural and connective tissue. Because of this versatility, many diseases are being researched with cord tissue as a potential treatment including6:

  • Liver Fibrosis
  • Lung Cancer
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Sport’s Injuries (cartilage)
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Wounds, burns, and ulcers
  • Diseases of the Eye
  • Heart and Vascular Disease
  • Gastrointestinal Disease
