  • donors
  • Similar to a blood drive, donors would not get any direct benefit from the donation except perhaps the satisfaction of helping someone. (ctmirror.org)
  • patient's
  • These infused stem cells can grow in the patient's body and replace the patient's own stem cells that were destroyed by the chemo-radiation therapy, resulting in a new line of white blood cells, red blood cells, or platelets that the patient will need to survive. (cancerconnect.com)
  • mononuclear cell
  • Though this method results in overall cell loss, it results in a more pure population of the layer that includes the stem cells - the mononuclear cell population of the white blood cells - and contains only a few red blood cells. (aabb.org)
  • procedure
  • Is the procedure used to collect cord blood safe for my baby? (asbmt.org)
  • If any of the blood tests are abnormal, or the patient has an active infection, the procedure may be postponed or the patient may possibly be excluded from the study. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • newborns
  • The program enables mothers of newborns to donate their babies' umbilical cord blood and have it publicly banked so it is available to anyone for lifesaving transplantations. (ucdavis.edu)
  • neurological
  • Over the past several years, our group and others have characterized the therapeutic potential of human umbilical cord blood cells for stroke and other neurological disorders using in vitro and vivo models focusing on the cells' ability to differentiate into nonhematopoietic cells including neural lineage, as well as their ability to produce several neurotrophic factors and modulate immune and inflammatory reaction. (ingentaconnect.com)
  • Many experimental animal studies have revealed that umbilical cord blood is useful to repair neurological injury in brain. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Neuroscientists have ignored it and are still ignoring it, but to me it's remarkable that something in your blood can influence the way you think," said the study's senior author, Tony Wyss-Coray, PhD, professor of neurology and neurological sciences and a senior research career scientist at the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System. (eurekalert.org)
  • biological
  • It is often sold to new parents as a form of biological "insurance" for certain blood disorders, cancers, and metabolic disorders. (healthcentral.com)
  • In a policy paper, the organization writes, "Private storage of cord blood as biological insurance should be discouraged. (nbcbayarea.com)
  • This has made cord blood stem cells an important biological resource tool and several studies are being done to use umbilical cord blood stem cells for diseases like Alzheimer's, Diabetes, Heart and Liver Disease, Muscular Dystrophy, Parkinson's Disease, Spinal Cord Injury and Stroke in future. (onlymyhealth.com)
  • The laboratory's team, headed by Prof. Reuven Or, includes a number of highly respected and accomplished scientists who conduct advanced research with a focus on the immuno-biological mechanism of stem cells derived from cord blood and bone marrow. (isracast.com)
  • Banking cord blood for family members other than the baby's siblings or biological parents is not advised without the doctor's guidance, since it is unlikely that the cord blood unit will be useful. (asbmt.org)
  • leukemia
  • Some parents mistakenly believe that their child could be treated with his or her own cord blood if he or she contracts leukemia later on. (howstuffworks.com)
  • All transplantations, most for acute lymphocytic leukemia but about 20% for acute myelocytic leukemia, took place in the U.S., and data came from the statistical center at the Medical College of Wisconsin and the New York Blood Center. (medpagetoday.com)
  • Unlike bone marrow, which could take months to find a match, patients with leukemia can look on the cord blood registry and quickly find a match," explained Brian M. Freed, PhD, executive director of ClinImmune Labs. (advanceweb.com)
  • Cord blood is used to treat more than 80 diseases, including sickle cell anemia and cancers of the blood, such as leukemia and lymphoma. (ucdavis.edu)
  • More than 170,000 people in the US are expected to be diagnosed in 2018 with a blood cancer (leukemia, lymphoma, or myeloma) according to the American Cancer Society. (news-medical.net)
  • In recent years, doctors have successfully treated patients with life-threatening diseases, such as leukemia, by transplanting them with blood collected from the umbilical cord of a healthy baby. (asbmt.org)
  • diseases
  • Millions of parents spend thousands to privately bank their baby's cord blood in the hope that it could be used to cure it of certain diseases in the future. (nbcbayarea.com)
  • Your decision to store your baby's cord blood can possibly be a lifeline which can probably help to treat a long list of life threatening diseases in years to come. (onlymyhealth.com)
  • human
  • Human umbilical cord blood can rejuvenate learning and memory in older mice, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. (eurekalert.org)
  • The researchers identified a protein, abundant in human cord blood but decreasingly so with advancing age, that had the same effect when injected into the animals. (eurekalert.org)
  • To distinguish the effects of old, young and "youngest" human blood on hippocampal function, the researchers used immune-deficient laboratory mice that could be given repeated injections of human plasma without experiencing negative immune reactions. (eurekalert.org)
  • When the older mice received human umbilical-cord blood plasma every fourth day for two weeks, many measures of hippocampal function improved notably. (eurekalert.org)
  • Safety of Autologous Human Umbilical Cord Blood in the Treatment of Stroke in Children. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • CD34

  • patients
  • Irreversible and permanent damage develop immediately adjacent to the region of reduced cerebral blood perfusion in stroke patients. (ingentaconnect.com)
  • All patients receive filgrastim (G-CSF) IV beginning on day 1 and continuing until blood counts recover. (knowcancer.com)
  • This study will enroll ten pediatric patients who have their umbilical cord blood banked with Cord Blood Registry, Inc. (CBR), who have been diagnosed with an arterial ischemic stroke (AIS), and whose caregivers contacted CBR, Inc. to notify them that the child has experienced an AIS around the time of birth. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • These patients have a type of blood cell disorder that is very hard to cure. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • fetal
  • Since the umbilical cord blood gases show the level of fetal oxygenation at the last moment before delivery, routine collection could be used to protect doctors from unfounded malpractice suits. (ehow.co.uk)
