According to results from a Phase 2 study published in the medical journal Stem Cells Translational Medicine, umbilical cord cells may be integral in treating children with cerebral palsy. Specifically, the Duke University team leading the study suggests that an infusion of a patient’s own cord blood cells can improve brain connectivity and motor skills. The study included 63 children ranging in age from one to six years old, each of whom received varying doses of their cord blood cells. Children that received greater doses yielded better results. “We are encouraged by the results of this study, which shows that appropriately dosed infusions of cord blood cells can help lessen symptoms in children with cerebral palsy,” lead researcher Dr. Joanne Kurtzberg said.
