Research on cord blood stem cells and a look into the future
Several areas of research are actively underway to answer the following questions:
- What is the minimum dose of stem cells per kilogram of body weight required for a successful graft?
- What is the potential for increasing the number of umbilical cord blood stem cells in the laboratory?
- Are cord blood stem cells the best cells to use for gene therapy?
Complete this questionnaire to help decide if you wish to save your child's cord blood.
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, serious consideration should be given to saving this source of stem cells.
Regardless of the source of stem cells, achieving a successful transplant may not always be possible.
