Stem cells are mostly utilized to treat disease or help with tissue regeneration, generally from either peripheral blood, bone marrow, or stem cells in the blood of the umbilical cord. Making expectant mothers aware of the value of cord blood will help to stop the much needed umbilical cords from being discarded as a medical waste.

Stem cells from cord blood can treat the following illnesses: certain cancers, leukemia, anemias, osteoporosis, lymphomas, and other immune and blood disorders.
