Efficacy Umbilical Cord Blood

Magically, Efficacy Umbilical Cord Blood

            There are still many mothers, especially those who have just given birth do not know the efficacy of cord blood at the birth of their baby. Normally the blood in the umbilical cord will be immediately cleared and the umbilical cord will soon be buried. Whereas according to the results of the study, blood in the umbilical cord (not the cord) to have various properties to cure diseases, especially diseases associated with blood.

            Stem Cells. The blood in the umbilical cord of newborn babies is not just any blood. Since the 1970s, medical research found that umbilical cord blood contains many stem cells (stem cells).
Then, what's that stem cells? Stem cells are the parent of all the cells in the body. These cells are undifferentiated and have a very high potential to develop into many different cell types in the body. Stem cells can be triggered to grow into blood-forming cells, heart muscle cells, nerve cells, immune system, skin tissue, bone, endocrine organs and so on.

            Source of Stem Cells. There are two types of stem cells. First, embryonic stem cells (embryonic stem cell) taken from the inner cell mass of a blastocyst (embryo consisting of 50-150 cells, approximately day 5 post-fertilization), which is usually obtained from leftover embryos that are not used in IVF (in vitro fertilization). And Second namely adult stem cells (adult stem cells) which is a set of cells that are in tissue, blood, bone marrow, brain, liver, and pancreas.

            Well, one source of stem cells is umbilical cord blood. Blood in the umbilical cord blood are derived as much as 40-120 mL of blood vessels (veins). Furthermore, the umbilical cord blood were isolated and further processed to produce a type of adult stem cells

Terms Intake Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cells. There are several requirements that must be met in order to pick up the cord blood stem cells. Among others, pregnancy is enough months, do not have certain diseases (especially HIV and AIDS), is also not a difficult childbirth.

            Making way. To get the cord blood stem cells, there are two ways that can be taken:
Placenta Stem Cells

- In Utero. Namely the umbilical cord blood collection to the circumstances in which the placenta (placenta) is still in the womb. That is after the baby is born, the umbilical cord is cut. Then, the umbilical cord is still attached to the placenta is extended out of the uterus and its blood is passed through a sterile needle. Once the process is completed, the placenta is delivered.

- Ex. Utero. Namely the decision made in the placenta that have been removed from the uterus. That is, after the baby is born, the umbilical cord is clamped and cut. For then, the placenta is expelled from the uterus and placed on a special table. Then the umbilical cord blood flowed into a sterile bag through a sterile needle. The collection process is generally short-lived and highly recommended for umbilical cord blood to be taken must first be cleaned with antiseptic. For later, the umbilical cord with sterile needles are inserted to drain blood into a blood bag.

            Noteworthy by mothers who will give birth that the blood sampling process is fairly safe and avoid pain. And the capacity of the range of blood taken two bags of blood.
Storage manner. Once the cord blood collected, the amount of blood around 40-120 mL is first brought to the laboratory for isolation process is carried out so as to produce a number of 2 mL of stem cells alone. This then results are stored in a cord blood bank.

            Umbilical cord blood stem cells for storage in liquid nitrogen temperatures can survive indefinitely in.

            How to use. How to use? If the umbilical cord blood stem cells at any time required, it must be subjected to liquefaction process (thawing). Before doing thawing, begins the process of request of the doctor who will perform the transplant. The doctor will first match between donor and recipient stem cells, which must also conducted tests on the content of the stored stem cells.

            Efficacy. Until now, blood stem cells have been used to restore blood diseases such as hematology-oncology (blood cancer), cancer of the white blood cells (leukemia), aplastic anemia. In addition there are many types of diseases that can be treated with stem cells umbilical cord is, among others, acute leukemia, chronic leukemia, the syndrome Myelodysplastic, Stem Cell Disorders, Congenital (Inherited) Immune System Disorders, Other Inherited Disorders, Inherited Platelet Abnormalities, Plasma Cell Disorders, and autoimmune diseases.

            Researchers will apply even stem cells to cope with other disorders such as Alzheimer's, cerebral palsy, Parkinson's, stroke and autoimmune diseases such as lupus, of course, in the future, after going through several stages of testing.

Conclusions: We recommend that all pregnant women who will soon give birth can utilize these stem cells because who knows our family any time there is a need. For the storage of stem cells we can save time and can save the cost of purchasing stem cells.
