Umbilical Cord Stem Cell Harvesting

July 20, 2010 at 1:10 pm

As a matter of fact, harvesting stem cells from the umbilical cord blood of your children is excellent as 1/2 of those cells have come from you. You would tend to lose less cells, through some rejection and not need the immuno suppresive toxic poison to kill your cells, both good and bad.

It’s a wonderful thing you did that for your children as in the future they will be able to take out cells and grow themselves a heart or kidney if needed.

[QUOTE=guskno]This is wonderful news!! I have a question: I harvested the stem cells when my children were born. Does anyone know if that makes it easier/cheaper/no chemo/etc to get a SCT????[/QUOTE]
