Umbilical Cells

In recent times, we are witnessing how these cells can be used in transplant procedures to try and attempt to cure certain diseases as leukemias, anemias or lymphomas. For this reason, it is important to highlight the work of umbilical cord blood banks. More information is housed here: Mental Health Monday. There are already several studies that have shown that transplantation of cord blood cells can have the same efficacy as other transplants more conventional, like bone marrow or peripheral blood diseases such as leukemia. There are two types of stem cells in the blood of the umbilical cord. Hematopoietic stem cells are used, as we have said, to transplant hematopoietic, since from them new (red, white blood cells and platelets) blood cells are formed. But there are also other cells mother, mesenchymal stem cells, from which certain damaged tissues of the organism, can regenerate i.e. used in regenerative medicine. In early 2008, entered into force the National Plan of Umbilical cord blood, which governs the activity of the public banks as private banks. Despite that in Spain began to store umbilical cord blood in private banks only 7 years, they are already around 25,000 families who decide every year hiring the services of collection, analysis and transfer of the stem cells from the baby through private as IVIDA banks.
