The abandonment of a newborn in Danbury is putting a renewed focus on Connecticut's Safe Haven law. The baby boy, with its umbilical cord still attached, was found alive Wednesday … Click to Continue »
Experts are skeptical about the neonatal practice of "lotus birth," in which parents opt out of severing their newborn's umbilical cord.
Tests of cells collected from the umbilical cord blood vessel walls at birth can predict death or poor pulmonary outcomes in extremely preterm infants.
Human umbilical cord blood can rejuvenate learning and memory in older mice, according to a new study. The findings could lead to new treatments for age-associated declines in mental ability.
(University of Alabama at Birmingham) Tests of cells collected from the umbilical cord blood vessel walls at birth can predict death or poor pulmonary outcomes in extremely preterm infants, say researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
From new classes of drugs to natural remedies like beetroot juice, marijuana and erm, human umbilical cord blood, science has long teased us with potential solutions to that little problem we call aging. New research in the area hasShow More Summary
A woman used to use a shoelace to tie off her new granddaughter's umbilical cord after the baby was delivered during a traffic jam. Latishe Andrews tells local media outlets … Click to Continue »
This stuff works. Don't let the shock factor of the main ingredient deter you from using this serum. The main ingredient is derived from a human umbilical cord serum, but rest assured that there are no live cells or stem cells in this serum. Show More Summary
You leave your car in a vast, crowded parking lot, and when you return, you have no idea where it is. The ensuing search is frustrating, time-consuming and a little embarrassing. That experience occurs more frequently as we get older, because the functions of the part of the brain that encodes...
Blood from human umbilical cords appears to have helped reverse memory loss in aging mice
The findings are just in mice and debate swirls around the anti-aging pursuits.
Oh, the proverbial fountain of youth. As we age, can we somehow tap into it? Researchers are exploring this in a literal way as they study the effects of blood from human umbilical cords—which is about as young as it gets—on aging mice. Reporting in the journal Nature...
A protein identified in human umbilical cord blood has been shown to rejuvenate and revitalize the learning and memory ability of older mice.
What old brains need is a shot of young blood — and the younger the better. It may sound like a metaphor employed by a randy octogenarian. But new research on mice suggests it can be taken quite literally. Writing in the journal Nature, Stanford University anti-aging researchers reported Wednesday...
In mice, a protein derived from human umbilical cord plasma rejuvenates the brain.
Young blood can rejuvenate the mind. Now a study has identified a protein in umbilical cord blood that can boost memory and brain function in aged mice
Ageing drives changes in neuronal and cognitive function, the decline of which is a major feature of many neurological disorders. The hippocampus, a brain region subserving roles of spatial and episodic memory and learning, is sensitive to the detrimental effects of ageing at morphological and molecular levels.

It turns out the fountain of youth might be coursing through human umbilical cords. At least that's part of the findings from a team of researchers at Stanford University that saw some impressive results when the substance was injected into old mice suffering from cognitive decline.

Several studies now suggest that young plasma has revitalizing properties—and with results this intriguing, it’s no wonder there is drama brewing among the scientists involved.
