The benefits in stem cells from umbilical cord tissue

Description:

Cord blood is the blood, which is found in the umbilical cord as well as the placenta after a baby is born. When the umbilical cord is clamped and cut, it leaves with approximately two ounces of blood. Medical practitioners collect this blood with a surgical needle. These blood cells are full of adult stem cells, which form our immune and blood system. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: The benefits in stem cells from umbilical cord tissue


1
The Benefits in Stem Cells from Umbilical Cord
Tissue
2
What is Cord Tissue?
  • We all know that stem cells can be collected from
    cord blood as well as cord tissue. What many
    people are not aware of is, what the differences
    between them are and which one makes a better
    option for people, who are considering stem cells
    banking.
  • Stem cells collected from cord tissue is a
    comparatively new concept, compared to cord blood
    stem cells.

What is Cord Blood?
  • Cord blood is the blood, which is found in the
    umbilical cord as well as the placenta after a
    baby is born. When the umbilical cord is clamped
    and cut, it leaves with approximately two ounces
    of blood.
  • Medical practitioners collect this blood with a
    surgical needle. These blood cells are full of
    adult stem cells, which form our immune and blood
    system. These adult stem cells are collected,
    processed and preserved, so they can be used in
    clinical trials.

Newborns Umbilical Cord
  • cord tissue is the jolly-like material that is
    found around the vessels of the newborns
    umbilical cord. After the umbilical cord is
    clamped and cut, a part of the cord is saved to
    collect the cord tissue.
  • Cord tissues contain thousands of different kind
    of stem cells that have the ability to form our
    cartilage, circulatory tissues, skin, bone,
    nervous system and sensory organs.

Newborns Umbilical Cord
  •  what are the benefits of stem cells, collected
    from umbilical cord tissue over cord blood? Apart
    from having the amazing regenerative qualities,
    cord tissues have other advantages as well. 
  • They have the healing quality to repair our body
    tissues and give birth to a new self. Listed
    below are some of the advantages that cord tissue
    stem cells have.

6
1. They are Young
  • The stem cells that are collected from the cord
    tissue are young and once processed and preserved
    they can defy aging as well. They not only can
    create other types of new cells, but also can
    transform into one of many cell types. 
  • These are the qualities that make their aging
    process slower. Moreover, the agelessness of
    these cells can also lead to lesser risk of
    immune response, compared to the aged cells where
    the chances of chronic complications are high.

2. They are Easy to Collect
  • As mentioned earlier, the collection process of
    cord tissue is simple and poses no risk to the
    mother as well as the baby. 
  • After the baby is born, the doctors carefully
    clump and cut the umbilical cord and then they
    extract the cord blood from the cord. Following
    this procedure, they take a small portion of the
    cord for processing and preservation to get the
    stem cells.

3. They are Higher in Number
  • Its noticed that stem cells found from the
    umbilical cord tissue are much higher than cord
    blood and other sources. Some studies even proved
    that the stem cell count is 3 to 14 times higher
    in cord tissues. 
  • It increases the chance of greater number of stem
    cell collection.

9
4. More Productive Migratory Abilities 
  • Stem cells from cord tissues are more productive
    than that of other sources. It means that they
    have more regenerative abilities compared to
    other sources.
  • Umbilical cord tissue stem cells can transport
    straight to the affected areas.
