Cord Tissue Stem Cells Used for Autism Clinical Trial

In honor of Autism Awareness Month (April), Parent’s Guide to Cord Blood® recently published an article regarding Duke University’s Medical Center, which has established a research program dedicated to stem cell therapy for autism. Starting in May 2017 this trial will be a Phase 1 study of 12 children who will receive Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) that can be found in cord tissue. Using cord tissue instead of cord blood in this trial is not only new for Duke University, but makes them the first academic center in the west to register a trial using MSC therapy for autism. Learn more about Cord Tissue clinical trials
