What is stem cell banking?


Stem cells are the master cells that act as basic building blocks of the human body. These cells have the unique ability to transform into specialized cells such as blood cells, brain cells, muscle cells, bone cells and so on.

Stem Cell Banking or Umbilical Cord Stem Cell Banking is the process of extracting, processing & storing stem cells derived from a newborn’s cord blood in a repository.

Cord blood: A better source of stem cells for transplants.

Two studies on cancerous and non-cancerous disorders showed that stem cell transplants from cord blood performed much better than bone marrow.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cord Blood Stem Cells have high regenerative properties & the ability to transform into blood cells, brain cells, muscle cells, bone cells etc. Currently, they are used to treat 80+ life-threatening medical conditions.

By storing the precious cord blood of your baby with LifeCell, you can now protect not just the baby but the entire family including parents, siblings, maternal & paternal grandparents for a lifetime.

One, among many, benefits of using cord blood stem cells, compared to stem cells gathered from other sources, is that cord blood is a fairly simple and non-invasive process to collect. There is absolutely no pain or risk to the mother or child.

As a result of their ability to self-renew and differentiate into different cell types, stem cells have found applications in the treatment of various diseases. Currently, cord blood stem cells are being successfully used and studied for further applications in the following areas.

1.Tissue regeneration: Stem cells find use in repair and restoration of damaged tissues or organs in case of severe injuries and chronic diseases.

2.Disease treatment: These remarkable stem cells have the potential to treat various medical conditions. These include forms of blood cancers as well as various genetic, immune, and metabolic disorders. For instance, the FDA has

approved the treatment of over 80 diseases using cord blood stem cells. Full list provided here.

With ongoing research and developments in the field of stem cells, treatment of various debilitating ailments shows promising results.

Answer: Majority (>90%) of the blood related medical conditions would require stem cells from a healthy matching donor for treatment as our own stem cells contain the same defect (root cause of the problem) that causes the disease, hence they cannot be used for treatment

Example: Consider a case where the child is diagnosed with thalassemia and is in need of a stem cell transplant. Since his own cells will be affected with the same thalassemia gene, he will need stem cells from a related or unrelated matched donor.

Answer: The odds of using own stem cells in a lifetime is <0.04%. There is no risk to share your baby’s stem cells. Similarly to blood, our body’s own stem cells also regenerate continuously. If required, own stem cells can be easily retrieved from the blood or bone marrow of our body.

For instance, Actor Lisa Ray did not have the facility to preserve her umbilical cord blood stem cells at birth. However, in order to treat her Multiple Myeloma, a type of blood cancer, her own peripheral blood stem cells came to her rescue and gave her a new lease of life.
