Cord blood & cord tissue
Can stem cells prevent Anaemia?
When considering stem cell storage, you may not know that it is an effective preventative procedure in the fight against anaemia. Anaemia is the most common blood condition in the world, and the reduction or abnormality of red blood cells can affect everyone at some stage in their life. Certain forms of anaemia are hereditary and recessive, genetically passed on to infants from their parents at the time of birth. Anaemia can also develop as a result of lifestyle choices, diets as well as various conditions and medication side effects. Your decision to store stem cells with Stem Protect UK could provide your family with the best chance of fighting all types of anaemia. You can bank stem cells from umbilical cords or even adult teeth with a simple and painless procedure. Cell banking is affordable and most of all it gives you piece of mind, knowing that should you ever need a stem cell transplant or regenerative work, you are prepared to face the future with the best possible care. We provide stem cell banking facilities to help you fight some of the most aggressive types of anaemia: • Aplastic anaemia • Congenital dyserythropoietic anaemia (CDA) • Fanconi anaemia • Paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria (PNH) Aplastic anaemia Aplastic anaemia is a pathological condition in which the body does not produce enough red blood cells to function properly, resulting in a variety of symptoms and susceptibility to several infections. An allogeneic stem cell transplant is the only feasible cure for aplastic anaemia. Allogeneic stem cells come from a donor, who could be a sibling, another family member, or from your own stored cells. Congenital dyserythropoietic anaemia Congenital dyserythropoietic anaemia, or CDA, is believed to be genetic and transferred from mother to baby at birth. Umbilical cord blood contains potentially life-saving stem cells that can develop into various cell types in the body such as bone, blood, tissue and organ. Fanconi anaemia Fanconi anaemia (FA) is a rare condition which affects the reproduction of blood cells in the bone marrow and response to DNA. Though it is rare, Fanconi anaemia has benefited from a lot of research into therapies and treatments, especially cell transplants, which is a particularly effective treatment that provides victims with a longer life span. Paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria Paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria (PNH) is a rare, chronic, debilitating disorder that most frequently shows from early adulthood, and it’s usually a lifelong condition. It is probably the most aggressive type of anaemia, and can greatly benefit from stem cell implant banking.
