Autistic youngsters helped by cord blood

We have the inside scoop from Duke University about a trial using cord blood infusions to improve the lives of very young autistic children.

The Duke study wanted to find out if cord blood infusions were able to improve cognitive abilities in the children.

Those tested received two infusions of cord blood in a six month period which yielded the most profound results in children with an IQ below 70.

Compared to the children on a placebo, significant improvements were particularly seen in the treated youngsters’ eye-tracking, communication, and brain scan activity.
