Americord Applauds Study on Stem Cell Therapy for Congenital Heart Defects
Date:6/24/2013

fects that affect newborns. If cord blood stem cells could be used as a viable treatment method for heart defects, or at the very least could prolong the time until a more permanent treatment could be implemented, thousands of lives would be saved.

Americord is committed to supporting research into new medical therapies that use stem cells from cord blood and assisting parents whose children need their stem cells to participate in a clinical trial. The company reimburses the full cost of cord blood banking to any of its clients who enroll their babies in clinical trials that require the use of their stem cells. "By donating the cost of cord blood at such a critical moment, we hope to ease the burden that parents face and contribute to the efforts of the stem cell research community," said Martin Smithmyer, the CEO of Americord.
