What are the benefits of cord blood banking?

Cord blood is in use today in hospitals around the world. There are over 80 diseases treated with cord blood as a standard of medical care, although admittedly many of these are rare disorders. Clinical trials with cord blood are developing therapies for more common childhood disorders. Cord blood can be donated to public banks for patients seeking donors, or stored in family banks for future use by the baby’s family.
