Stem Cell Banking - A revolution in the world of healthcare
31st August 2021
Stem cell banking or umbilical cord banking is an essential & effective process of collecting, processing & preservation of stem cells from umbilical cord attained at the time of delivery, for the purpose of potential future use for the baby and entire family in therapies and regenerative medicine.
The stem cells that are obtained from umbilical cord blood have high self-renewing & regenerative properties. They are potent in treating over 85 diseases.
The results of cord blood transplants have drastically improved over a decade. The researchers & clinicians have immensely discovered about: dosing cord blood, selecting better matches, and giving better supportive care to the patient during the process of transplant.
Presently, over 50,000 stem cell transplants are conducted every year. It has become a successful method of treatment across the globe. These stem cells are used in modern day medicine as they are well-capable of developing into blood or tissue cells to replace or repair the affected or damaged parts, thus restoring normal body function hampered by illness, injury, or ageing. They are also capable of protecting the body from within.
The rise in awareness about necessary stem cell preservation is because of its possible uses for several kinds of diseases, such as:
Preservation of stem cells is supposed to be booked during the third trimester of pregnancy. Once the enrolment is completed, the pregnant couple receives the sterile collection kit before the due date.
Post-delivery, the collection of cord blood from umbilical cord after it is clamped & cut is a 10 minute procedure. The bank processes the blood, harvests it and preserves it in a cryogenic depository at -196 degrees Celsius. And the cryopreservation certificate is released to the family.
