Umbilical cord is the tube connecting the fetus and placenta. It contains rich sources of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) and able to differentiate into various tissues and organ cells, including cardiac, nerve, cartilage / bone, muscle and epithelial cells etc. Researches showed that MSCs can stimuate body's regeneration and the reaction of immune system It's a multi-potential cell.

Although the research in umbilical cord MSCs is relatively late compared with cord blood , there are more than 880 clinical trials underway using the same type of cell(primarily from bone marrow)6,7. Researchers believe that MSCs may help to treat various conditions such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, heart failure, liver damage, and bone fractures in the future. Research showed that MSCs can regulate for immune response and spark body's regenerative machinery.
