Inaugural Event, World Cord Blood Day 2017, Highlights Non-Controversial Source of Stem Cells
World Cord Blood Day (November 15th) will provide an opportunity for parents and health professionals to learn about current cord blood applications and research.
More than 35,000 cord blood transplants have been performed worldwide since 1988 to treat over 80 life-threatening diseases including sickle cell anemia, thalassemia, lymphoma and leukemia. In the emerging field of regenerative medicine, cord blood holds great promise in treating autism, diabetes, hearing loss, stroke, brain injury and more. Yet, cord blood is still thrown away as medical waste in the majority of births worldwide. The purpose of World Cord Blood Day is to educate expectant parents and health professionals about the current applications for this non-controversial source of stem cells and to highlight exciting research happening in this field of medicine.
