Title: Harvesting Stem Cell from Peripheral Blood

Harvesting Stem Cell from Peripheral Blood
2
Cord Blood Banking Process 
  • Cord blood banking is the process of collection
    as well as storage of the stem cells from the
    umbilical cord.
  • All of these stem cells are adaptable and can
    treat various diseases that can be regenerated
    into any type of cells.

3
Private and Public Bank
  • Private cord blood banks mainly take a reasonable
    amount of fee for the collection, processing and
    storing the umbilical cord blood stem cells of
    your child. This method is performed so that the
    stored stem cells can be used for emerging
    treatments in the future for your family. 
  •  There are some public banks where the cord blood
    is stored for free of cost but in this case, you
    cannot retrieve the stem cells of your own baby.

Two main storage of cord blood are
  • Donating the cord blood at a public bank can be
    used to match with the patients suffering from
    the severe medical condition.
  • Storing of the cord blood in a private stem cell
    bank will help to retrieve your babys stem cells
    whenever you will need it.

5
Cord Clamping
  • Medical staff usually collects cord blood right
    after birth, but if parents want to participate
    in delayed cord clamping, they can also wait for
    several minutes.
  • The clamping is done just like a normal procedure
    and for both the mother and her baby it is
    completely painless. 

6
Cord Blood Collection
  • First, as a normal umbilical cord removal, the
    cord is clamped and cut. The medical staff must
    be trained on proper collections of cord blood
    if they wait too long, the blood clots will be
    unnecessary for storage. 
  • Then the blood is pulled out. A needle is placed
    in the cord and the rest of the blood is gently
    pulled out. This medical device is kept away from
    your baby, so its as safe as possible.

7
Cord Blood Collection
  • Then the blood is shipped to your chosen bank,
    where it is tested. The bank cryogenically
    freezes the cord blood if the stem cells are
    usable, so it remains useful for decades to come.
  • Several banks offer cord tissue services that
    will increase your familys amount of banked stem
    cells at an additional cost. More than 80
    diseases can currently be treated using cord
    blood stem cells, with more treatments emerging
    each year.

8
Cord Blood Collection
  • The FDA has approved leukemia, aplastic anemia
    and other hazardous life-threatening diseases for
    cord blood therapies.
  • A clinical trial is looking at new therapies
    using cord blood in addition to current
    treatments. These include cerebral paralysis,
    autism, and diabetes of type 1. If current trials
    are successful, the treatment of cord blood may
    become a common practice in the next few years.

9
Viability of Cord Blood
  • This means that cryogenically preserved stem
    cells still have decades of proper functioning.
    One scientist tested the viability of cord blood
    from 23 years of age, and the sample remained in
    perfect condition.
  • While cord blood as n innovative methods in the
    field of regenerative studies is still rising and
    striving to the future of stem cell therapy is
    hopeful for many researchers and medical
    professionals.
