San Bruno, CA (PRWEB) October 27, 2004 -
Utilizing both video and publishing, Cord Blood Registry at http://www.cordblood.com/pr.asp?id=pr1 has created an information-rich resource for both consumers and healthcare professionals that provides up-to-date and relevant information that can be lifesaving to not only babies, but to entire families, as well.
"The controversy over funding for embryonic stem cell research on Capitol Hill has created an amazing level of awareness about the power and value of stem cells," stated Stephen Grant, Vice President of Communications for CBR.
Newborn stem cells, also known as cord blood stem cells, are found in umbilical cord blood after a baby is born and are usually discarded. They possess similar properties to embryonic stem cells in their plasticity, but lack the controversy.
This controversy proved the catalyst for CBR to create the new site. With the increasing level of awareness that the embryonic stem cell research topic brings, Internet searches for information on newborn stem cells has also increased exponentially, and traffic to the new site is setting all-time records.
