A Brief History
Stem cell science has rapidly developed over the last few decades. The FDA has already approved over 85 cord blood treatments, and there's more to come.
Stem cells discovered in umbilical cord blood for the first time.
First cord blood transplant on an adult leukemia patient.
The first time a child was cured of a malignant brain tumor using their own banked cord blood.
20,000 cord blood transplants performed around the world to-date.
In a double-blind clinical trial it was proved that cord blood treatments were effective in treating cerebral palsy.
Over 40,000 cord blood transplants have been performed worldwide to treat over 80 diseases.

Frequently Asked Questions
The umbilical cord is rich with powerful stem cells - hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) to be precise. Umbilical cord blood stem cells are FDA-approved to treat cancers, blood disorders, immune disorders, and metabolic disorders, such as multiple sclerosis, leukemia, and sickle cell anemia.
The tissue of a baby's umbilical cord is filled with mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Umbilical cord tissue stem cells are the subject of clinical research looking at treatments for lung disease, Alzheimer's, Autism, heart disease, hair loss, and more. In the case of personal injury or physical ailments, these can potentially be extremely helpful.
The placenta is rich with mesenchymal stem cells. These stem cells have valuable growth elements, which are potentially effective when it comes to anti-aging, limiting neural degeneration, and more.

Can I do delayed cord clamping as well?
Yes - delayed cord clamping includes delaying cutting the cord, allowing cord blood to flow back into the baby. You can do delayed cord clamping as well as cord blood banking with Anja.
How can I use the stem cells?
After birth, you have access to a portal where you can view your stem cell certificate and contact us in the case you ever want to retrieve your stem cells. You would need to have a physician ready to receive the stem cells for treatment (generally for a FDA-approved or clinical trial use case). We can get the stem cells to your designated physician shortly after you contact us.
Here's a few articles to get you started. Read more on our blog!
