Lisa has asked her obstetrician to save and deep-freeze her son’s cord blood after delivery in case the child needs a future bone marrow transplant. What is in the baby’s cord blood that could be used to treat future disorders in the child? What would be the yearly cost?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Cord blood contains stem cells that arw unique to the child. The cells help in curing diseases such as spinal cord injury and leukemia.
Storage only would cost USD 44.948 per year.
