List of Treatable Diseases

Cord blood stem cell transplants have already changed—and saved—thousands of lives around the world. They have already been used to treat more than 75 diseases, including numerous types of malignancies, anemia's, inherited metabolic disorders and deficiencies of the immune system.

Future Potential
Scientists are predicting that in the near future the collection of cord blood at birth will be nearly as common as birth itself. More than the existing uses of cord blood stem cells, research indicates that these stem cells someday may be used to treat numerous other diseases including
Alzheimer's Disease
Cartilage Regeneration
Diabetes
Heart Disease
