It's worth saying it again; eventually people might get it: NO NEED FOR HUMAN EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS. See sample of references for the successful use of adult stem cells below. To date not one patient has been helped or cured with human embryonic stem cells. Smart funding -- both public and private -- should be going to successful adult stem cell research.

250 studies of successful adult stem cells in patients:

Over 80 diseases treated:

For example:

Current Stem Cell Applications

Acute Leukemia's

Chronic Leukemia's

Myelodysplastic Syndromes

Stem Cell Disorders

Myeloproliferative Disorders

Lymphoproliferative Disorders

Phagocyte Disorders

Other Inherited Disorders

Inherited Platelet Abnormalities

Inherited Metabolic Disorders

Histiocytic Disorders

Inherited Erythrocyte Abnormalities

Inherited Immune System Disorders

Plasma Cell Disorders

Other Malignancies

Potential Future Stem Cell Applications

This list represents major categories of diseases treated with stem cells and is not exhaustive. For instance, there are over twenty (20) specific types of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and numerous types of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, to name just two among many others.

Other cord blood banks include diseases such as breast cancer and testicular cancer. CorCell has chosen not to include these diseases as clinical data has demonstrated that these diseases are not effectively treated with stem cell transplantation.
