Descriptions


Hematopoietic progenitor cells, cord blood is used for blood cell transplantation procedures in patients with disorders that affect blood production. This medicine is derived from human blood that is collected from the umbilical cord and placenta. The hematopoietic progenitor cells go to the bone marrow where they become red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets. These cells enter the blood stream and help restore low blood counts in patients with blood disorders.
