Safety of Umbilical Cord Blood Transplants Confirmed in Recent Study

Umbilical cord blood storage and umbilical cord blood transplantation are two areas of study that have gained popularity and attention in recent years. According to the American Society of Hematology, umbilical cord blood storage is a very safe procedure that offers scientists the added ability to expand the number of stem cells in a lab from those extracted, and as a result, patients can receive larger doses of stem cells in blood transplantations. These larger doses of stem cells are developed safely in laboratories to provide patients with shorter recovery times and minimize infections and transplant failures.
