Cord Blood Transplant Effective in Stroke Treatment

Umbilical cord blood transplants have shown good results in the treatment of strokes, spinal cord injuries and brain injuries, according to trials conducted on animals recently by the Chi Mei Medical Center in Tainan County.

This would indicate that umbilical cord blood transplants may have even broader applications than they are now known for.

Chen Sheng-hsien, director of obstetrics and gynecology, said researchers at the medical center have used mice to test the effectiveness of umbilical cord blood transplants in treating paralysis, a common post-stroke symptom, and it was found that a transplant helped improve the mice’s conditions.

Researchers have also launched experiments on the use of umbilical cord blood transplants in the treatment of dementia, Chen said.
