Stem cell banking – A revolution of healthcare industry

Stem cells are used to treat nearly 80 debilitating diseases and have been used in more than 30,000 different types of transplants as well. If your child has any disease that needs to be treated with radiation or chemotherapy, it's likely to have a negative impact on your immune system. If you have banked the stem cells and cord tissue of your child, these can be used to bolster and repopulate your child's blood and immune system very effectively.


Also, stem cells can become any cell type in the body. The embryonic stem cells become cells in the womb that makeup organs, blood, nerves, and bone. After birth, all these cells exist as adult stem cells in an individual's body; they are found in all tissue types and play a very important role in helping the body heal.

Stem cells are extracted from the blood of the umbilical cord and cord tissue; the process is very easy and the mother or her baby has no pain or risk. A highly invasive procedure is a collection of bone marrow that also serves a similar purpose and general anesthesia is required for it.

Matched stem cells, which are required for transplantation, are very difficult to obtain in many cases as the requirements for matching are very strict. Yet the cord stem cells of your child are and will always be the perfect match for her/him throughout her life. Besides this, stem cells are also likely to be a 25 percent match for a sibling, and there is a 50 percent chance that they will be a partial match. When genetically-related stem cells are used to treat a disease, transplants are often very successful and complications for any blood-related family member are also much lower.

Stem cells also have a very high fertilization rate and are much more tolerant of HLA malfunctions compared to bone marrow transplants. This aspect results in a significantly lower rate of post-transplant Graft-Versus-Host Disease. The current medical space is progressing at a very rapid pace and we live in a world where regenerative medicine is being researched and studied extensively. Stem cells are used to treat non-immune or blood-related diseases.


These cells are used to reconstruct cardiac tissue and to repair damage caused by spinal cord injuries or stroke, and to reverse the effects of various debilitating diseases such as Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson's, and to build new organs. While all this research is in its infancy, its potential is promising. By banking the stem cells of your baby today, you will automatically increase its access to all of these future health technologies. Today, some private companies in India are offering services for stem cell banking. The demand for these banking services also increases as awareness of the benefits of stem cells increases.

Even as awareness of stem cells and their benefits is growing, more people are now opting to bank the stem cells of their child. These banks are now becoming increasingly important because more people now recognize that this procedure is an investment in the future of their family's health. In financial terms, their return on investment cannot really be calculated. This investment is capable of saving a loved one's life. So, it's no surprise that a number of people in India are now willing to know about the importance of stem cell banking in India and opting for it.
