The families who donate the umbilical cord of their child can have full access in future. Again this is a false assumption and a rumor in fact that families will not get access in future for their near and dear ones. Today, the cancer is such a disease which is rapidly growing and treatment with stem cells has made its mark in the field of medicine.
People have a false belief that the cord blood could not be used for the same child because it contain diseases and may cause to infection. This is simply a baseless rumor as stem cells are highly recommended by physicians because diseases like leukemia, lymphoma, and brain disorders arthritis have shown the positive results after applying stem cell therapies to patients. Due to its high success rate, it is progressively offering many more advantages.
Besides the treatment of cancer and other major diseases, stem cell therapies are proven much advantageous for the treatment of arthritis, osteoarthritis, autoimmune disorders, anemia etc. Therefore, such treatments are a big asset to the people.
Cord Blood banking is quite popular for the donation of stem cells. To search for a perfect match and finding those people who are willing to donate, is not an easy job. Umbilical cord blood banking in India is also coming into existence for better treatments and preservation of cord blood for long time.
Safety is another major concern that is not at all related to the umbilical cord blood because the detachment of cord is quite painless and it neither harms mother nor the baby. Once the cord is clamped, it’s been discarded after that. When it is cut, the blood is stored and used for major treatments which are quite fruitful rather than harming anyone.
