Will Cord Blood Soon Be Used to Treat Autism and Brain Injuries? (INFOGRAPHIC)

A question parents often have when considering whether or not to bank their child’s cord blood is, “What are the odds that my child will ever need it?”

While our hope is that none of our clients will ever wind up needing their cord blood, the truth is that you just never know. Research shows that one in 88 children develop autism and every year 435,000 children under the age of 14 suffer from a form of traumatic brain injury. Science suggests that one day in the near future, stem cell therapies may be used to help.


As this infographic shows, clinical trials studying cord blood’s role in the treatment of autism and traumatic brain injury as well as Type 1 Diabetes are all in their second phases, which means that we’re one step closer to getting some concrete answers.
