Currently, Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs) stem cells found in cord blood have been approved by the FDA in the treatment of nearly 80 diseases. Most of the following conditions for which children receive stem cell transplants require that the cells come from a donor. Storing your child’s cord blood at traditional family banks is primarily stored for potential transplant use, not for the use of your child.

**The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Academy of Pediatrics do not recommend routine cord blood storage, which is not offered by VitalCells.
