Please guide which is better for spinal cord injury: One's own stem cells or umbilical cord blood stem cell?
My cousin being a victim to spinal cord injury we are planning for his own bone marrow stem cells treatment by NCRM (http://www.ncrm.org/
) - Life line hospital, Chennai group. But the first such success having been reported by a korean team in which umbilical cord blood has been used (http://times.hankooki.com/lpage/200411/ ... 710440.htm
) I wonder whether there is any reliable institute in India offering this treatment using umbilical cord blood.
When my sister delivered a baby we understood there are more than 7 companies in India storing the umbilical cord blood stem cells, but none were confident enough to say they could offer treatment for such diseases. can any one guide me with?
