In umbilical cord,which type of stem cells are found:

Newborn stem cells can be found in cord blood and the umbilical cord itself (cord tissue). These are noncontroversial sources of precious stem cells that are collected after the umbilical cord has been cut and would otherwise be abandonment.

  • Cord tissue is a rich source of mesenchymal stem cells, which create composition and conjunctive tissue.

  • Cord blood is a rich source of hematopoietic stem cells, which create the blood and immune system.
