The above is a list of some diseases that have been treated with cord blood and other sources of similar stem cells (haematopoietic stem cells), such as bone marrow and peripheral blood. Banking cord blood does not guarantee that the cells will provide a cure or be applicable in every situation. The use of stem cells will ultimately be determined by the treating physician.

* Treated with cord blood.
