Our articles include a broad range of topics, helping you to make informed decisions about your family’s health.

Autoimmune Conditions

Cord blood stem cells can reduce abnormal immune system activity in conditions such as MS and diabetes, enhancing the lives of patients.

Blood Conditions

Haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) like those found in cord blood can treat any blood condition and are the only known cure for sickle cell disease.

Cancers

Cord blood transplants can treat cancer. They are most often used for cancers affecting the blood or immune systems, such as leukaemia or lymphoma.

Eye Conditions

Stem cell therapies are now being trialled to improve vision for people with eye conditions such as macular degeneration.

Heart Conditions

Umbilical stem cells have been used to improve heart muscle and function in heart failure patients, leading the way for more noninvasive therapies.

Injuries & Accidents

Mesenchymal stem cells like those in cord tissue can transform into specific cell types such as bone, cartilage, muscle and ligament, accelerating healing following musculoskeletal injuries.

Musculoskeletal Conditions

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can replace damaged tissue cells and are being trialled to help patients with conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis.

Neurological Conditions

Cell replacement therapy is an exciting new treatment for neurological conditions including Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s disease, MS and stroke.
