LV Cord Blood Bank Opens New Possibilities

Cord Blood America Inc. plans to open a multimillion-dollar facility in Las Vegas to store umbilical cord blood—which is rich in non-controversial adult stem cells.

Jennifer Lahl, founder and national director at The Center for Bioethics and Culture Network said umbilical cord blood can be stored for years and used to treat diseases and conditions.

“This is a brand-new field, and certainly it’s a wonderful, precious resource,” she said. “It’s a win-win. People on all sides of the political and religious divide can come together and say this is good for everybody.”

She said only about 10 percent of umbilical cord blood is saved.
