Abstract

Umbilical Cord Blood (UCB) was considered to be one of the least significant products of birth. But research has shown that the advantages of using UCB are many. It can be stored indefinitely, and therefore, can be transplanted back to its owner, removing the need to find a matched donor.  It can also be donated to an unrelated recipient because of its reduced immune reactivity.
