Cord blood stem cell therapy without immune suppression?

cordbloodThe first scientific review of the rationale for the practical use of umbilical cord stem cells without the use of immune suppression was published in the Journal of Translational Medicine and it is freely available: the authors propose that expanding the use of cord blood to non-preconditioned adult recipients for regenerative purposes would be a great step for the practical advancement of stem cell therapeutics. By overcoming allogeneic barriers in regenerative medicine, the fundamental limitations of autologous cell therapy may result in effective standardized “off-the-shelf” cellular products for regenerative therapeutics.” Source
