Umbilical Cord Blood

The identification of new sources of stem cells may provide significant clinical benefits in the regenerative medicine. Although sometimes still regarded as a medical waste, the blood remained in the umbilical vein after birth (Umbilical Cord Blood, UCB) has become a valuable alternative source of haematopoietic stem cells for the treatment of various disorders. Using UCB is advantageous because it is obtained by a simple, safe and painless procedure when the baby is delivered.
