WSJ: Scientists Focus on Umbilical Cord (stem cells) for Cures

Very promising research!

WSJ:  Researchers of Type 1 Diabetes, Arthritis, Cerebral Palsy Examine Stem Cells in Cord Blood

 

Researchers see new potential for using blood found in the umbilical cord of newborns to treat a range of diseases. Transplants using the stem-cell-rich blood have already become lifesaving treatments for certain cancers and disorders of the blood, but these studies focus on a wider range of conditions.

Scientists are studying whether cord blood or cord tissues can treat certain autoimmune disorders such as Type 1 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis, as well as congenital heart disease and cerebral palsy.
