6.5. Saving Cord Blood

This information is provided by The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, Education Department.

At this time, it is premature to make recommendations concerning the banking of cord blood for later use in nervous system disease or trauma. In some instances of genetic disease and cancer, treatment with non-autologous cord stem cells has been beneficial. There may be a more defined benefit as research in this area continues or other cell sources may prove equally useful.
