Cord-blood stem cells have the extraordinary potential to save lives and safeguard children’s health. In the past, young, Jewish, first-time parents saw the extra expense of cord blood banking, with annual fees and high set-up costs, as a downside to the investment.
Now, through Westchester-based Maze Cord Blood, one of the lowest-priced options among all FDA-approved and AABB-accredited cord blood banks, with no annual storage fee, Jewish parents can get the best science at the best value.
“When we did the research, Maze Cord Blood always came out on top as a company that not only delivered quality service but also truly cared about us and our baby,” said Rachel and Jacob from Teaneck.
With industry advances and ongoing clinical trials, the reasons to consider banking cord blood and tissue, especially as it pertains to the Ashkenazi Jewish community, have been growing:
Cord blood currently treats over 80 diseases, including common Ashkenazi Jewish diseases such as Niemann Pick Disease, Fanconi Anemia and Metachromatic Leukodystrophy (MLD). Clinical trials are under way for Tay Sachs Disease and Autism.
An estimated 10,000-15,000 people per year need a stem cell transplant but can’t find a suitable donor—your baby’s stem cells are a perfect match!
Cord-blood stem cells may also be used for siblings or parents—with up to a 75 percent match rate.
Valuable cord-blood stem cells can be banked and maintained in a viable state for more than 25 years.
“All three of my babies have their cord blood and tissue banked at Maze. After comparing companies, Maze was the best value for us,” said Sarah and Gabe from Riverdale.
