Preservation of the cord tissue stem cells

Stem cells are non-specialized cells with unlimited proliferation potential. In the presence of suitable stimuli, they can differentiate the specialized cells of which tissues and organs are made. There are two main types: embryonic and adult.

The therapeutic use of the latter is not controversial because it does not require the destruction of an embryo: it is possible to obtain them from a tissue sample taken from an adult or a child, as in the case of stem cells from cord tissue.

Cord tissue samples can be taken at the time of your baby’s birth.

Autologous and private conservation with the Bioscience Institute

The activity of private stem cell banks has always contributed to raising awareness of the importance of conserving cord blood stem cells, whether public or private.

Over the years, in fact, requests for donations have increased or decreased when those for private conservation followed the same trend (1). Private banks, therefore, can integrate the activities of public banks, if they are able to provide, through a bioethical code and excellent quality standards, balanced information, and the necessary guarantees.

What is important to know about cord tissue sample preservation?

Why store

Storing your child’s stem cells is an investment in their health and that of compatible family members. Stem cells from cord tissue are now used in the clinical setting.

What to store

It is possible to preserve both stem cells from umbilical cord blood (both for the newborn – for preventive purposes – and for allogeneic use by compatible family members) and those from cord tissue.

The Procedure

The umbilical cord tissue, rich in stem cells, can be collected during delivery (both physiological and caesarean) with a simple procedure without risks for the mother and her newborn.

Are you thinking of storing your child's stem cells?

Cord blood is the blood that remains in the umbilical cord after the baby is born and is a valuable source of stem cells.

Until recently it was treated as “waste” and eliminated with hospital waste along with the placenta and the umbilical cord. It is currently used in the treatment of around 100 serious diseases.
