Placental Stem Cells Study in Oakland

Placental Stem Cells Study in Oakland

A recent study being conducted by Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland is the first to show findings from a new source for harvesting stem cells from a woman’s placenta, or more specifically the discarded placentas of healthy newborns.

The study also finds there are a lot more stem cells in placentas than in umbilical cord blood, and they can be safely extracted for transplantation. Furthermore, it is highly likely that placental stem cells, like umbilical cord blood and bone marrow stem cells, can be used to cure chronic blood-related disorders such as sickle cell disease, thalassemia, and leukemia.
