Cord blood. The past, the present and the future


Author(s): Dariusz Boruczkowski

The first report about haematopoietic stem cells transplantation from cord blood with good result, was published in 1989. Since then, the major changes have occurred, based on scientific and technical developments. Today, after over twenty years standards use of hematopoietic stem cells, there is another kind of cells from cord blood used in treatment – mesenchymal stem cells. These cells could be not only expanded in order to medical treatment but also differentiate in next specialized cells lines. The articles, describing medical application of differentiated cells, confirm the possibility of more and more diseases treatment.
