Why Choose CBC Health’s Stroke Recovery Treatment Over Others

In comparison to other stem cell treatments for ischemic stroke, CBC Health only uses allogeneic cord blood stem cells, whereas, other companies use autologous stem cells. Autologous stem cell treatments require invasive procedures to harvest stem cells from the stroke patient prior to treatment. CBC Health uses cord blood that is readily available, tested and stored by Europe’s second-largest private cord blood repository, Cord Blood Center Group.

Allogeneic cord blood stem cells offer the following benefits when compared to autologous stem cells:

  • Increased cell replacement
  • Faster growth rates
  • Neurotrophic Influence
  • More immunologically beneficial
  • Readily available
  • More therapeutic cells and proteins

Industry Support for Cord Blood Stem Cell Treatments

"We believe that the primitive cells found in whole umbilical cord blood can help reduce swelling in the brain faster and rescue some brain cells that are on the brink of death."

John J. Volpi, M.D., Co-directorHouston Methodist Eddy Scurlock Stroke Center

"What they (stem cells) do is to pump out very powerful growth factors, molecules and proteins that enhance native mechanisms of recovery, such as new synapses of neurons that are there, new blood vessels, and they have a very profound effect on modulating the immune system."

Dr. Gary Steinberg, professor and chair of neurologyStanford University School of Medicine

"Factors secreted by the transplanted (umbilical cord) cells were able to offer a neuroprotective effect. This may relate to the cells secreting vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF), brain-derived growth factors (BDNF), and neurotrophin-3 (NT-3), all of which have potential benefits for the treatment of stroke."
