To date there have been over 40,000 cord blood transplants worldwide. Cord blood stem cells are currently used to treat more than 80 different life-threatening diseases such as leukemia, lymphoma and sickle cell anemia. Cord blood stem cells are also proving critical to new areas of regenerative medicine to potentially treat spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, autism, type 1 diabetes and much more. Using cord blood is no longer science-fiction or just a hope. The Cleveland Cord Blood Center celebrates the professionals who are dedicated to collecting cord blood units, the donors that have made cord blood-derived therapies possible, the researchers that have worked to develop new therapies and the recipients that have courageously challenged their conditions.
