Disclosure: I was compensated by LifeBankUSA for my article.
We would do anything for our kids right? As parents we would give our own life but at times when our kids need help the most, our own life, tissue, blood, ect isn't enough. It is so hard to think about our children being sick or dying but the fact is...it happens. It seems as though the world is full of stories that can make me cry on an instant. While we were pregnant with both Jude and Teagan I read a lot about places like LifeBankUSA but we never jumped on the opportunity to store any cells/tissue. Now looking back, I wonder what we could have done differently, for now I am good with our choice and I pray we never need those cells but I want to inform all of you that there is an option for you if you are interested. Let me back up, what is LifeBankUSA?
Placenta tissue banking is a potential game changer in regenerative medicine.
LifebankUSA, owned by Celgene Corporation, is the only cord blood bank processing material for FDA-approved clinical trials using stem cells from placental tissue. These stem cells are being used to treat patients with serious conditions, including diabetic foot ulcers. LifebankUSA preserves your baby’s placental tissue using the same steps taken for processing stem cells for our FDA-approved clinical trials. No other cord blood company
can claim that. Tissue banking is simply one additional layer of protection and peace of mind foryou and your family offered by LifebankUSA. †
As you know, the stem cells in cord blood have transformative potential and have been used to treat over 30,000 patients worldwide. It’s been shown that using a higher number of stem cells in a transplant leads to better engraftment and survival. Did you know that you can preserve significantly MORE of your baby’s stem cells by adding placenta blood banking to your cord blood collection?
Banking the most stem cells can be critical and only through banking both cord and placenta blood do you have this opportunity. Numerous studies published in top medical journals have shown that transplanting more stem cells significantly increases success and transplant survival rates. In fact, customers who bank placenta blood in addition to cord blood with LifebankUSA preserve 60%-70% more CD34+ stem cells – the cells that are the most important for rebuilding diseased blood with healthy blood.
Only LifebankUSA has the proprietary technology to offer placenta blood banking with cord blood banking to expectant parents. We are also the only company in the world to release placenta stem cell units for transplant.
Your child is being born into a world of extraordinary possibilities that include the enormous potential of stem cell banking. Make the most of this once-in-a- lifetime opportunity by choosing LifebankUSA and add placenta blood banking to your cord blood collection, for a very real, proven layer of protection for you and your family.
