What is Cord Blood Banking?

What is Cord Blood Banking?

Cord blood is the blood that remains in your newborn's umbilical cord after birth. These stem cells could be a rich and powerful source of healing, if the need should ever arise.

Fast Facts

Cord blood is showing promise in current clinical research studies for autism, cerebral palsy and more.84
Your baby is a perfect genetic match to his or her own stem cells.
Studies show that using matched cord blood from a relative will more than double the chance of transplant success.50

It’s currently used in the treatment of nearly 80 diseases.2

What is Cord Tissue Banking?

What is Cord Tissue Banking?

The tissue found in your newborn's umbilical cord contains a different kind of stem cell. Though still in the research phase, these special cells are showing great potential for the future treatment of medical conditions affecting cartilage, muscle and nerve cells.19

Fast Facts

Researchers are focusing on many potential treatments for cord tissue therapy, including Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, lung cancer and sports injuries.20,86,25,26
ViaCord is one of the few family banks to receive AABB accreditation for cord tissue processing.88
Saving both cord blood and cord tissue means more stem cells, more treatment options and more healing potential.7

With ViaCord, your cord tissue is "treatment ready"-yielding 8x more stem cells if you should ever need them.14

What Are Stem Cells?

What Are Stem Cells?

Stem cells are the innovative architects responsible for the development of your baby's tissue, organs, blood and immune system. Stem cells from cord blood, bone marrow and peripheral blood are all used in medical transplants today.

Fast Facts

They can develop into specialized cells, such as nerve or blood cells.
They can repair damaged and diseased cells and tissue when transplanted.

Regenerative medicine is an exciting and evolving area of stem cell therapy which aims to heal the body from within.

In fact, since 2000, cord blood is the fastest growing source of stem cells in pediatric transplants and make up more than 1/2 of all pediatric transplants.3a
