Stem cells, from a newborn’s umbilical cord are collected immediately after birth. Once the umbilical cord has been clamped and cut, the remaining blood in the umbilical cord is drawn into a collection bag. The remaining tissue portion is collected in vials. Whether you have a normal delivery or a c-section, the process of collecting your newborn baby’s stem cells is a safe, painless procedure that won’t disrupt you or your baby. From start to finish, the cord cell collection process takes about five minutes.
Umbilical cord stem cells when preserved through the process of cryopreservation. Cryopreservation freezes the cells at a temperature of -196 degree Celsius, through liquid nitrogen. This way the cells’ age freezes but do not lose their viability. The cryo- freezed cells would be in their purest form at the time of use, as they do not undergo the factors of pollution, ageing or any other kind of damage, thus making them more powerful and better programmable than the adult stem cells present in the body, for a better treatment. Therefore, the stem cells preserved under cryogenic conditions have no expiration date, and can be utilized at any moment, lifetime.
Umbilical cord blood stem cells are used in the treatment of over 80 medical conditions. Among these are leukemia, aplastic anemia, thalassemia, Hodgkin’s disease, and non- Hodgkin’s lymphoma. There are many more therapies under clinical trials that are changing the landscape of future medicines. Cord blood stem cells are being researched upon for the treatment of conditions such as Autism, traumatic brain injury, congenital heart defects, hearing loss and cerebral palsy. Over 30 clinical trials around the world are researching the capability of the cord tissue stem cells in treating, Stroke, Spinal cord injury, Liver disease, Diabetes and Cartilage injury.
Cord Cell preservation has become pocket friendly now, compared to the early phase when this technology was launched, owing to the presence of several Stem Cell Preservation banks in the country. Each stem cell bank has its own cost package, depending upon the facilities they provide. Most of the stem cell banks have come up with installment and EMI schemes to suit the pockets of their clients, better.
Stem cells are present everywhere in the body. The most common sources are Bone Marrow, Peripheral Blood, and many more, but, the extraction of stem cells from these sources is a painful process, while Umbilical cord stem cells can be collected through a simple, non-invasive process at the time of birth, without any harm to the mother or the baby. The preserved stem cells can be easily retrieved at any time. During transplants, cord blood stem cells pose lower risk of rejection. These are naïve cells and offer higher matching ability than stem cells from other sources. These cells can be a potential match for the child’s siblings also. Cord tissue stem cells have greater regenerative capabilities compared to adult stem cells.
Cord cell banking is the process of collecting and storing your baby’s umbilical cord stem cells for potential future medical use. Umbilical cord has two components, the cord blood and the cord tissue. Cord blood banking involves collecting blood left in your newborn’s umbilical cord and placenta, which contains potentially lifesaving cells called hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). Cord tissue banking involves collecting the clamped cord tissues, after the cord blood has been drawn out from it. Umbilical cord tissue is an abundant source of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), which pose a critical role in the treatment of diseases, for their regenerative properties in cartilage, muscle, and nerve cells.

My baby was a low weight & needed special attention so baby was brought to Paras Bliss Hospital under the care of Dr. Krishan Yadav and from the day I felt comfortable to leave the baby in hospital under his care.
