A new study suggests umbilical cord stem cells found in the cord of new born babies implanted into Covid patients could improve survival chances. The study was carried out in the USA by scientists at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine where researchers have reported a 91 per cent survival rate in seriously […]
Since the late 1980s, umbilical cord blood and related birthing tissues have evolved from medical waste to a rich source of blood stem cells. These can be transplanted to restore normal blood and immune cell development and function in blood diseases such as leukemia and lymphoma, certain inherited genetic disorders, bone marrow failure and immune deficiency diseases.
There is very little scientific evidence for the value of banking placenta cells clinically. Biovault is always excited about developments in tissue and cell banking and we keep a close eye on innovation within our Industry. However, in line with our ethical and cautious approach, fostered through our long working relationship with the NHS we […]
Why you should consider banking your baby’s cord blood Cord blood is the leftover blood in the umbilical cord after birth, and cord tissue is the cord itself. Both contain powerful stem cells that could be used to potentially treat a variety of medical conditions. Cord blood is rich in stem cells that can morph […]

In the first major study of cord blood transplantation for secondary acute myeloid leukaemia 40% of patients are “rescued” from the disease. The results of world’s first major study into the use of cord blood transplantation (CBT) to treat secondary acute myeloid leukaemia (sAML), were published in December 2018. 146 patients participated in the test. […]
From easing creaky knees to mending a damaged heart, it seems that scientists are on the brink of using stem cells to revolutionise treating a range of conditions. These master cells are essentially the building blocks of human tissue, and some have the capacity to turn into any type of specialist cell, such as skin, […]
