Title: Stem Cell Preservation - A Critical Process

Stem Cell Preservation - A Critical Process
  • One of the most effective ways to protect the
    health of your child is to store its stem cells
    at birth.
  • Being able to bank on precious stem cells when
    they are born could be a crucial step in the
    treatment or treatment of an unexpected disease
    they may face later in life.
  • What better way to have peace of mind than to
    know that valuable stem cells that can help treat
    or cure potential diseases have been banked
    safely for a day when your child may need them.

Stem Cell Preservation - A Critical Process
  • Innovative and rapidly evolving umbilical cord
    blood stem cell therapy, which uses stem cells
    collected immediately after birth from the blood
    of the umbilical cord, was first used in the
    1980s and is now part of the successful treatment
    of over 80 different diseases.
  • Research on its uses is ongoing, leading to
    several exciting clinical developments, including
    ischaemic heart disease treatment and some
    neurological conditions.
  • As scientists continue to unlock their medical
    potential, cord blood stem cells are likely to
    play a major role in our ability to treat human
    disease.

Stem Cell Preservation - A Critical Process
  • Stem cells are biological cells that can either
    remain a stem cell or transform into another type
    of cell with a more specialized function, such as
    a muscle cell, red blood cell, or a brain cell,
    when they divide.
  • Stem cells are the building blocks of blood and
    immune systems that act as a system for repairing
    and maintaining tissues, organs and blood vessels
    by multiplying and transforming them into other
    body cells, replacing cells that have been
    damaged in some way.

Stem Cell Preservation - A Critical Process
  • The process of cell collection takes place
    immediately after birth and for both mother and
    baby is painless and safe.
  • The procedure is performed by a trained and
    licensed health care professionala private
    obstetrician, physician, midwife or assigned
    phlebotomist (someone trained to take blood) at
    the hospital or birth center.

Stem Cell Preservation - A Critical Process
  • Once your baby is delivered safely, whether
    natural or via C-section, and the umbilical cord
    is clamped, it is wiped with antiseptic and a
    needle is inserted into one of the umbilical cord
    veins to remove blood.
  • The collected umbilical cord blood is then
    transferred to the specialist laboratory or cord
    blood bank using special containers capable of
    maintaining the appropriate cord blood unit
    temperature and integrity.

Stem Cell Preservation - A Critical Process
  • In a process known as volume reduced processing
    before freezing, the red blood cells are then
    removed from the white blood cells.
  • The cord blood is then cryopreserved for
    long-term storage if it meets quality standards.
  • Depending on the quality of the cryopreservation
    process, the precious stem cells can be stored
    for many decades once frozen.

Stem Cell Preservation - A Critical Process
  • Once you take that life-changing step to start a
    family, it suddenly becomes a top priority to
    protect the health and well-being of your baby.
  • The storage of stem cells from the umbilical cord
    of your newborn is a once-in - a-lifetime
    opportunity to capture a valuable resource that
    could turn out to be a life-saver in years to
    come.
  • A simple, pain-free procedure of stem cell
    preservation can become be the most intelligent
    investment you've ever made.
