Abstract

Autologous transplantation of stem cells is a natural phenomenon at birth in mammals via the umbilical cord. Here, we discuss that a delay in the cord clamping may increase stem cell supply to the baby, thereby allowing an innate stem cell therapy that can render acute benefits in the case of neonatal disease, as well as long-term benefits against age-related diseases.
