How Can Stem Cells Be Used?

Cord blood is routinely used as a source of stem cells by many transplant centers around the world.  This is because it is a valuable source of the blood-forming stem cells (Hematopoietic Stem Cells) and as such Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplants (HSCTs) are often part of a standard treatment in patients whose bone marrow or immune system is damaged or defective.

HSCTs can currently be used to treat over 80 diseases, including leukaemia, lymphoma, thalassemia, sickle cell anaemia and many other diseases of the blood. For a full list, please click here.

Cord blood stem cells could also be used to make induced pluripotent stem cells. Learn more about iPSCs, an important advancement in stem cell research.
