What are the benefits of cord tissue banking?
Just like cord blood banking for the family, cord tissue banking is a form of biological insurance, where parents bank their baby’s stem cells for future therapies. The two main benefits of banking both cord blood and cord tissue are: (1) to have more stem cells from the same child and (2) to have different types of cells. There are a growing number of clinical trials wth umbilical cord tissue. Parents who have more cells in storage will have more options in the future.
