Have you watched a science fiction movie where actors used revolutionary technology to treat health problems within minutes? It seems quite innovative, right? Well, we are not far from that reality—all thanks to cord blood stem cells! These tiny yet incredibly powerful cells present in your newborn’s umbilical cord blood provide a ray of hope in the dark, gloomy tunnel of life-threatening diseases. Surprised?

Cord Blood Stem Cells - A Regenerative Medical Science

This blog will explain how these regenerative stem cells can protect your entire family from numerous deadly diseases. Let’s delve in!

But before we delve deeper into that, let us explore the basics of stem cells.

What Exactly Are Stem Cells?

Stem cells are the cells found in the body that have the ability to differentiate into specialised ones. These stem cells are of various types including embryonic, adult, fetal, and umbilical cord stem cells. Each one has its unique properties in the world of regenerative medicines. 

But, let’s talk about the most important topic –umbilical cord stem cells. Doctors use them to combat life-threatening illnesses only due to their self-regenerative properties. Let us now explore cord blood cells and their preservation.

Importance Of Cord Blood Preservation

We believe that you’re aware of the term cord blood. It refers to the blood left in the placenta and umbilical cord of the baby after birth. It includes powerful hematopoietic stem cells. These regenerative cells can potentially treat fatal diseases.  But were you aware that 97% of this cord blood was once discarded as medical waste? However, it’s true. 

But, in recent years, significant changes have occurred. Scientists around the globe discovered the immense value of these cells that were once considered as a medical waste. And, these cord blood cells have 10 times more stem cells than those collected from bone marrow. These cells are also FDA-approved for the treatment of many life-altering diseases. 

Isn’t it stunning? That’s why many parents look forward to their newborn’s stem cell preservation. Now, let’s move to the next section below.

Now, you might be probably assuming about all the hype surrounding cord blood stem cells. Let’s explain to you through numbers:

More than 17,000 blood cancer patients have found success with stem cell transplants. And, globally many families suffered with a constant fear of leukaemia, a common form of childhood cancer. However, stem cell transplants alleviated the fear for those families. 

What else do we need to know about these stem cells in research and medicine? For many, they act as a secret weapon against numerous deadly diseases. Therefore, preserving your baby’s cord blood stem cells at birth is the best decision that you will undoubtedly be grateful for in the future.


The decision to preserve your baby’s cord blood stem cells is a one-time opportunity that must be made before birth. And it can leave a long-lasting impact on your baby’s and family’s future health. Therefore, expectant parents are often advised to store their baby’s umbilical cord blood stem cells after delivery. 

However, for those seeking reliable stem cell banking services, LifeCell stands out as the best option. Being India’s pioneer and largest stem cell banking service, LifeCell collects and preserves your baby’s cord blood stem cells. By storing your newborn’s stem cells with LifeCell, you not only protect your own child but your ENTIRE family from the impact of many life-threatening diseases.
