  • efficacy
  • Dr. Wanzhang Yang, who led the study at Nanshan Affiliated Hospital of Guangdong Medical College commented, 'This important study, which is the largest of its kind, demonstrates the safety and efficacy of using cord-blood-derived stem cells to treat a variety of neurological conditions. (news-medical.net)
  • cells
  • However, it also suggests cord-blood-derived stem cells are a safe and viable treatment option for a much broader range of diseases and conditions than previously thought. (news-medical.net)
  • Because the protocol developed by Beike allows the use of cord blood stem cells without immune suppression, it can be made available to a wide patient population. (news-medical.net)
  • patients
  • It describes biochemical, hematological, immunological, and general safety profiles of patients with neurological diseases who were observed from between one month to four years after treatment. (news-medical.net)
  • donor
  • The purpose of this study is to determine the safety of first trimester fetal stem cell therapy using unrelated donor partially HLA-matched stem and progenitor cells derived from human umbilical cord blood for the treatment of selected lysosomal storage diseases that are known to cause severe and irreversible neurological disability in early infancy and which are lethal in childhood. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Even though the applications of umbilical cord blood and cord tissue stem cells are increasing, it is unlikely that a relative who does not suffer from these diseases would need the stem cells obtained from the original donor. (genecell.com)
  • The high level of assurance and security to cord blood provided by private banks, the provision of complete ownership rights to the donor, and flexible collection sites are some of the key factors compelling end-users to prefer private cord banks instead of public cord banks.

  • malignant
  • Patients are stratified according to disease group (malignant vs nonmalignant). (knowcancer.com)
  • Patients with malignant disease are further stratified according to quality of HLA match (1 or 2/6 vs 3/6 vs 4/6 vs 5/6 or 6/6), cell dose, and age. (knowcancer.com)
  • public cord
  • The Foundation educates parents, health professionals and the general public about the need to preserve this valuable medical resource while providing information on both public cord blood donation programs and private family cord blood banks worldwide. (publiccordbloodbanks.org)
