Scientists are looking to expand the use of umbilical cord blood stem cells in treating conditions. Ongoing studies show promise in treating patients with type 1 diabetes, rebuilding heart muscles in children with hypoplastic left-heart syndrome and improving conditions of patients with cerebral palsy by infusing the stem cells intravenously. The American Academy of Pediatrics has issued policy encouraging public cord blood donations, as U.S. demand for cord blood stem cells for research and medical treatments increases.
