Are Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cells Safe?
This is a question that is frequently asked – What is the safety of umbilical cord stem cells?
Well, umbilical cord stem cells are very safe. They are actually from healthy born babies and healthy mothers. They have been tested for many of the diseases and they are regulated by the American Tissue Banks as well as the American Blood Banks.
People also ask, “Do we have to worry about it being from another person or a donor stem cell?” And the answer is, “No, you don’t.” And the reason why is because stem cells from the umbilical cord have no immune markers on them. So, you essentially could put it into anybody and there is no host vs. graft rejection. And of all of the cases of stem cells that have been used over many years with umbilical cord blood, there has not been any reported graft vs. host rejection.
What we know is — umbilical stem cells are very safe. They are very effective at:
- Reducing Inflammation
- “Eats” Scar Tissue
- Regenerates Degenerative Tissue, as well as preventing cell death
- Modulating the immune system.
So, the cells are young and when they are young, they are also more robust than our own stem cells as we age.
