The Amazing Difference Between
Cord Blood & Cord Tissue
Although both cord blood and cord tissue stem cells are powerful, they each have very different roles in the body and in regenerative medicine. Given the benefits of cord blood and cord tissue, and the numerous stem cell therapies used today and those in clinical trials, many parents preserve both to ensure that all of their bases are covered.
Billions of Cells Hard at Work
Cord Blood Stem Cells
Can regenerate all of the components of our blood.
Cord Tissue Stem Cells
Can regenerate all of the tissue parts in our bodies.
Cord blood contains a rich source of various cells, including hematopoietic stem cells, which form blood cells. Today, there are 80+ diseases that can be treated with cord blood stem cells. Also, there are more than 100 active cord blood stem cell clinical trials worldwide investigating the treatment of various diseases like autism.
Cord tissue contains an abundant source of mesenchymal stem cells that can differentiate into various cells, including cartilage, bone, and fat cells. Cord tissue cells have the potential to regenerate blood vessels and internal organ tissue such as brain and liver tissue. It can also reduce inflammation and repair damaged tissue. Currently there are 500+ active clinical trials using umbilical cord tissue.
