The Value of Cord Tissue

Clinical trials have shown cord tissue to be more useful than cord blood in certain therapies. These include treatments for spinal cord injuries, cartilage repair, autoimmune disease, liver disease, orthopedic indications and neurological conditions.


The Potential

These cord tissue stem cells are called mesenchymal stem cells or MSC’s. Mesenchymal stem cells have the potential to evolve into many types of cells, including organ, muscle, skin, bone, cartilage, and fat cells.
