The Cryo-Save difference – providing families who believe in the future of regenerative medicine and tissue engineering access to current and future stem cell therapies.
Stem cells are powerful and have the ability to create and regenerate the organs, blood, tissue and immune system that make up our bodies. They have the function of growth and healing throughout life.
They can potentially save your baby from 80+ diseases
Blood forming stem cells from cord blood have been used to treat or cure more than 80 blood related diseases — conditions like leukaemia, lymphoma and bone marrow failures. The list keeps growing as science advances, too. Clinical trials are now underway to use stem cell therapies to potentially treat autism, cerebral palsy, diabetes, spinal injuries and others.
In some cases, your baby’s blood forming stem cells can be used to help other relatives as well. There is a 25% chance of them being a perfect match for siblings. Biological parents will always be at least a half match. Additionally, with cord blood stem cells, it is not always necessary to have a perfect match for a transplant.
Your baby’s stem cells have life-saving abilities.
