STEP 3: Remove the cells and inject the culture media into mice with EAE

Cord Blood Banking for new parents??

I have just come across this news story http://www.standard.co.uk/news/health/m ... 84186.html and wondered if any parents had opinions about storing stem cells?

Does anyone have any experience of this??
Thanks! :peace: ...
