What is umbilical cord blood and its uses in regenerative medicine?

Cord blood, or umbilical cord blood, is the remaining blood from the placenta and umbilical cord after child birth. The composition of cord blood contains all the elements found in whole blood such as red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, platelets and hematopoietic stem cells. Stems cells that are derived from cord blood can be used to treat hematopoietic and genetic disorders.

They can also be utilized similarly to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation to reconstitute bone marrow following radiation treatment for various forms of blood cancers and anemia. To produce healthy new blood cells and boost the immune system, stem cells from cord blood can replenish the body’s supply of blood cells. This is beneficial for not just blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma, sickle cell, and Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, but also radiation and chemotherapy treatments that could deplete many helpful blood cells along with harmful tumors or cells.

Under regulation by the FDA, it is simple to safely collect, cryopreserve, and use in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. With public and private banks ensuring that cord blood stored is safe and effective for patients, it has the integrity and support needed to be utilized to its fullest in the regeneration and re-growth of blood-forming cells. There are many studies demonstrating the incredible regenerative capabilities of cord blood within application to orthopedic indications, additional studies are available demonstrating a diverse use of this mesenchymal cell rich product.

Procurement Process

All birth tissue products are obtained from C-section deliveries from normal, full-term pregnancies.  Donors that consent to use of their birth tissues are carefully screened prior to the use of their tissues in manufacturing.

Comprehensive medical and social histories of the donors are obtained and tissues are procured, processed, and tested to minimize potential risks of disease transmission to recipients. Infectious disease testing is performed at a certified laboratory in accordance with the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) and 42 CFR part 493.

Each donor is tested for HBsAg  (Hepatitis  B  Surface  Antigen),  HBcAb  (hepatitis  B  core  Antibody), HCV (hepatitis C Antibody), HIV I/II-Ab (Antibody to Human Immunodeficiency Virus Types 1 and Syphilis detection test, HIV NAT (HIV Nucleic Acid Test), and HCV NAT (HCV Nucleic Acid  Test).

All products are tested post-sterilization to demonstrate the absence of bacterial and fungal pathogens and are non-pyrogenic.
