Stem cells, Cord blood

Scope Note: Stem cells are different from other cells of the body in that they have the ability to differentiate into other cell/tissue types. This ability allows them to replace cells that have died. With this ability, they have been used to replace defective cells/tissues in patients who have certain diseases or defects

Scope Note: Cord blood - blood taken from the umbilical cord vein or artery of the fetus. Like bone marrow, cord blood is rich in blood stem cells. It can be frozen and stored for later transfusion, for example, in cord blood transplantation.
