Anaemia is the most common of all blood disorders.
Children under the age of five are the most affected.
Stem cell therapy can be used to treat anaemia.
Cells from stored cord blood are used to boost the production of healthy red blood cells. This process restores the balance in the blood and helps alleviate the symptoms of anaemia.
