By preserving your baby’s stem cells, your child and family can access potential treatments for over 75 serious ailments such as leukaemia (blood cancer), thalassemia, brain injury, juvenile diabetes and many more.
Umbilical cord blood and tissue preservation is a simple, painless procedure that can take place after a vaginal or caesarean birth. Once you enrol with Cryonine, you will receive a umbilical cord collection kit which contains all the material and information that you and your doctors need for a successful collection. Please ensure that you carry the kit, gel packs and all related documents while coming to the hospital for delivery. After your baby is born, your obstetrician or paramedic staff will collect the cord blood and the cord tissue. The entire process takes less than 10 minutes and it is harmless to both the mother and the baby. Once the cord blood and cord tissue has been collected, it will then be transferred to the processing facility through our designated courier for processing and storage.
Cord tissue is a rich source of stem cells for your family The cord tissue is the tissue constituting the umbilical cord after removal of the cord blood. The cord tissue is loaded with stem cells, which are the origins of the body’s immune system, blood system, and tissues. These stem cells can be used for medical treatments and there are no ethical controversies surrounding stem cells derived from the umbilical cord as the umbilical cord and placenta are usually discarded after birth.The umbilical cord tissue stem cells are “Mesenchymal stem cells” which have been found to have the potency to treat tissue/organ related ailments like diabetes, heart ailments, osteoporosis etc.
It is important to preserve both the cord blood & cord tissue stem cells to ensure that your child gets a complete cover from most of the ailments – based on future research and developments. If you decide to bank your baby’s stem cells, let your obstetrician know well in advance.
