I've heard about Cord Blood Banking for use in Medical Therapies in the future. Can Cord Blood Stem Cells also be used in Bone Marrow Transplants?

Yes, Cord Blood Stem cells can be used for Bone Marrow Transplants, particularly when a suitable Bone Marrow donor is unavailable. Cord Blood contains a high concentration of Hematopoietic Stem Cells, which can be used to repair Bone Marrow and treat a variety of blood-related illnesses such as Leukaemia as well as other Haematological illnesses. Cord Blood Banking is an option for parents who want to keep their child's cord blood for future medical use.
