LAD is an attractive disease for human gene therapy as the conventional therapy with antibiotics and granulocytes transfusions improves the symptoms only but does not correct the phenotype.10 The only definite treatment is stem cell or bone marrow transplantation from histocompatible relatives and should be considered as an early therapeutic option if a suitable HLA-matched stem-cell donation is available.9 Our cases emphasize that as physicians we should investigate any child presenting with delayed umbilical cord separation and markedly raised leukocyte count.
This discovery that ECCs could be derived from teratocarcinomas, which are tumors induced by the transplantation of implantation-stage mouse embryos to extrauterine sites in histocompatible hosts, inspired researchers to isolate pluripotent cells directly from embryos itself, thus circumventing the need for generating/obtaining teratocarcinomas for pluripotent stem cell isolation.

The difference between public and private banks is essentially the difference between an anonymous donation versus storage for private use: in the case of a public bank, cord blood is donated altruistically and is available for any histocompatible patient who needs an allogeneic transplant, while in the case of a private bank, the bank is paid to store cord-blood stem cells for autologous use or for use by next-of-kin.
