Promising stem cell treatment for neonatal brain injury and stroke
from By Dr. Afsaneh Motamed-Khorasani
Human umbilical cord blood is a rich source of stem cells, which could be potentially used for the treatment of hematopoietic diseases. Ischemic brain damage is a major cause of mortality and severe neurologic disability. Recently, the use of human umbilical cord blood for the treatment of neonatal hypoxic-ischemic brain injury and ischemic stroke has been explored in several studies.
