Table of Contents

Umbilical cord blood (UCB) is collected from the umbilical cord of a newborn baby and also retrieved from the placenta after delivery. It is enriched with adult stem cells and these stem cells play a vital role in regulating all biological activities and in developing tissues in the human body. Many types of stem cells are present in UCB including hematopoietic stem cells and mesenchymal stem cells. Hematopoietic stem cells give rise to all the other blood cells. Hematopoietic stem cells are severely damaged in people suffering from bone marrow diseases, malignancies, inherited metabolic disorders, and immunological disorders. Mesenchymal stem cells are involved in the development of tissues such as cartilage, bone, fat, new blood vessels, and cardiac muscles.

UCB is used in clinical procedures associated with regenerative medicines. For instance, UCB-derived stem cells are used in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) for the treatment of life-threatening diseases such as leukemia and type I diabetes in children and adults. In addition, UCB is also used in the treatment of diseases such as bone marrow disorders, circulatory diseases, heart problems, neurological diseases, and cartilage disorders.

In Europe, the UCB banking market is growing due to increased awareness about potential applications of cord blood in the treatment of life-threatening diseases.

Due to increased awareness about potential of cord blood, newborns family donates and preserves cord blood either in private or public banks in Europe.
