Transplant Experience is Important

Experience and success rates in transplants gains confidence and trust.

StemCyte has extensive transplant experience in transplanting patients with unrelated cord blood. Did you know that these unrelated donor transplants are far more difficult to perform successfully than the more closely matched related cord blood transplants? Most private cord blood banks have performed related cord blood transplants which is what you will see in their transplant data.



Despite supplying cord blood for the more difficult, unrelated transplants, transplant success rates with StemCyte units have been outstanding, even in adults up to 220 pounds. Adult transplants are far more difficult because the larger the body mass, the more viable stem cells are needed to increase success rates.

Very few family cord blood banks have provided cord blood for large numbers of transplant patients. By contrast, StemCyte has supplied cord blood units for over 1700 transplants and with this number growing higher every day, this transplant experience supercedes all other private family cord blood banks combined.

Not only have our StemCyte cord blood units achieved outstanding transplant success rates, they exhibit excellent speed in reconstituting bone marrow. Cord blood units from StemCyte have successfully reconstituted bone marrow and produced adequate white blood cells and platelets in as little as one month in unrelated patients. This is a rare accomplishment for cord blood transplants. Fast bone marrow reconstitution means that the patient will be less likely to suffer from dangerous, life-threatening infections or bleedings. We believe that the success of our cord blood transplants results from our Stem Cell Optimization Process and excellent tissue typing (HLA) techniques.

Cord blood units from StemCyte have also been used successfully in the newest kind of unrelated cord blood transplants: double cord transplants where two cord blood units are combined to increase the number of stem cells. This is considered to be one of the most exciting breakthroughs for adult stem cell transplantation.

To date, more than 80 diseases have been successfully treated with stem cells. These include cancers (leukemias, lymphomas, myelomas), blood disorders (thalassemias, sickle cell anemia, Fanconi anemia), and immune deficiency diseases.
