Chapter 9

Baby is Back!

Peter Hollands

Abstract

This chapter reviews the stem cells, which have been discovered in the tissues related to pregnancy, such as the umbilical cord, placenta, and amniotic fluid and membranes, which surround the baby in the uterus. These stem cells are not in routine clinical use, but some clinical trials are underway, which may give us important safety and efficacy information in the future.
