A baby girl diagnosed with cerebral palsy shortly after birth recently enjoyed the fruits of cord blood research. While medical malpractice and birth injury or birth trauma (e.g., asphyxia, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, and ischemia) account for many cases of cerebral palsy, her disability was not due to medical malpractice. Rather, her brain damage was the result of an utero stroke.
Shortly after the baby’s first birthday, the family turned to stem cells banked during birth for a solution to their daughter’s permanent mental and physical disabilities, including an inability to hold her bottle, talk and walk. After a fifteen minute re-infusion of her stem cells, the baby girl began to improve. Within four days. her rigid right side began to loosen and her speech improved. Then she stopped dragging her foot and began to use her right hand. She now lives a normal life.
