What is Cord Blood?
Following childbirth, the umbilical cord is usually discarded with placenta
Blood is collected from the umbilical cord, which is a rich source of stem cells
Stem cells are the unspecialized blood cell that has the capacity to replicate and produce its own blood cells, Platelets, red and white blood cells.
Umbilical cord blood does not have well-developed immune cells and so the transplanted cells are not rejected by the host body
