Back in 2017, these medical researchers at Duke University also published a Phase I security trial assessing autologous umbilical cord blood in autistic children. The emphasis on cord blood cells being a potential cellular therapy accompanied with favourable findings from past clinical studies, promises a brighter future in treating ASD. CBR in its initiative to explore the potential of stem cells has offered institutional …
