Update On Potential Applications Of Umbilical Cord Lining And Cord Tissue

After a child is born, the umbilical cord is typically discarded as medical waste. However, scientists have discovered that the umbilical cord is in fact very rich in stem cells. The cord lining is the outermost layer of the umbilical cord and cord tissue is the Wharton's jelly that surrounds the vessels of the umbilical cord. As stem cells from the cord lining and cord tissue are immune-privileged, they hold great promise for regenerative medicine.
