Basic Research: Stem Cells
Infusion of stem cells from umbilical cord blood can improve the quality of life for children with cerebral palsy. Umbicilal cord blood is rich in stem cells. Cerebral palsy, caused by brain injury or lack of oxygen in the brain, during pregnancy, before birth or during the first few years of life, can impair movement, learning, hearing, vision and cognitive skills.
