Abstract

The umbilical cord contains a rich source of haematopoietic stem cells that can be used reconstitute the blood system and can easily be extracted and cryopreserved, thus allowing for the establishment of HLA-typed stem cell banks. Cord blood for transfusion can be significant source of blood supply to our health Cord blood for transfusion can be a significant source of blood supply to our health institutions. Recently, it has been demonstrated that umbilical cord stem cells have the potential to give rise to non-haematopoietic cells, such as bone, neural and endothelial cells. This expanded potential for umbilical cord stem cells might replace embryonic stem cells and other fetal cells for some cell and tissue therapies. This study aims to investigate the knowledge and use of umbilical cord blood (UCB). This was a cross-sectional study, an anonymous structured questionnaire was used. A total of 549 consenting patients randomly selected.
