Stem Cell Banking With Anja

Medically reviewed by

"I created Anja because my brother's last chance at treatment for cerebral palsy was umbilical cord blood and we couldn't find a match because we're mixed race."

– Anja Founder, Kathryn Cross

Why do cord blood banking?

💡 Stem cells are your body's master cells—they can repair and replace damaged blood and tissue cells.

Overview

Cutting-edge science has enabled the use of stem cells to help treat a variety of diseases, damage, and disorders. Stem cells can be extracted from blood and tissue samples that would otherwise be discarded as medical waste.

❓ Did you know? Some hospitals charge up to $800 for the disposal of your umbilical cord and placenta.

Storing these stem cells allows you to access them at any time. In the event that your child has a serious disease, you will always have the option of a stem cell treatment—an opportunity that few patients have. At Anja Health, we believe that stem cells are the best way to future-proof your family’s health.


Where do stem cells come from?

Umbilical cord blood

Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs) in the umbilical cord blood can reconstitute the immune system and have been used to treat cancers, blood disorders, immune disorders, and metabolic disorders.

Umbilical cord tissue

Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) in the Warton’s Jelly of the umbilical cord tissue are being used in clinical trials to treat Alzheimer’s, dementia, diabetes, stroke, wounds, and heart disease, and to slow aging.

The placenta

The placenta is a powerhouse containing both Amniotic Epithelial Cells (AECs) and Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs). Both are being looked at to treat neural degeneration, anti-aging, and promote the birth mother’s health.
