Cord blood hope for prem babies

Cord blood hope for prem babies

A first-of-its-kind study is underway to see if cord blood cells are effective in preventing premature newborns from developing bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) which is relatively common in preterm infants.

BPD is a breathing disorder in premature infants where the infants’ lungs become irritated and do not develop normally. It occurs most often in low-weight infants born more than two months early.  Find out about the trial here.
