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.
