CReATe offers you the opportunity to collect and save your baby’s cord blood stem cells for potential medical uses to treat life-threatening diseases. If you do not choose to bank your baby’s cord blood, it will be discarded after birth.
The Peristem™ program offers parents the option to bank a new type of stem cell that is found in the tissues surrounding the blood vessels of the baby’s umbilical cord.
The National Post published today the remarkable recovery story of little Jack who suffered from Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) at birth, a brain damage caused by lack of oxygen to the brain and other organs compounded by low blood flow to vital organs.
CReATe provides a variety of informative and comprehensive information sessions about cord blood and Peristem™ stem cells including: in-home consultations; educational group forums; tours of CReATe laboratory’s state-of-the-art facilities; online help.
