2005 Stock Pick of the Year - Cord Blood America Inc. (CBAI.OB)
- A Cord Blood Stem Cell Banking Company

From PRWEB. DanceswithBulls.com discusses their 2005 Stock Pick of the Year, Cord Blood America Inc. and the companies incredible growth.

After reviewing hundreds of Bulletin Board stocks in search of a company that had the potential of providing our members with considerable long-term gains from current price levels, it quickly became apparent that Cord Blood America Inc., could in fact be "The investment opportunity of a lifetime!"

Cord Blood America Inc. is the parent company of Cord Partners, which facilitates umbilical cord blood stem cell preservation for expectant parents and their children. Its mission is to be the most respected stem cell preservation company in the industry. Collected through a safe and non-invasive process, cord blood stem cells offer a powerful and life-saving resource for treating a growing number of ailments, including cancer, leukemia, or blood and immune disorders.

Cord Blood Banking
Cord blood banking is the process of collecting the blood from a newborn's umbilical cord immediately after delivery and cryogenically storing it for future potential medical uses. Because the collection occurs after the cord has been clamped and cut, there is no risk or pain to the infant or mother. Thousands of families are banking their newborns' cord blood because it contains stem cells that are unique to the newborn, and genetically related to their families.

Cord Blood Stem Cells - The Best Kept Medical Secret
With cord-blood research there is not only a potential, but a here-and-now workable medical reality. Adult stem cells which include umbilical cord cells are far superior to embryonic stem cells regardless of how the embryos are created. And because they are obtained from tissue discarded after a baby is born, umbilical cells are free of the political controversy surrounding embryonic cells.

While embryonic stem cells to date have yielded absolutely no successes and 0 clinical trials, adult stem cells, which include umbilical cord blood stem cells, have been successfully used to treat over 70 conditions, including brain and many other cancers, multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, sickle cell anemia, stroke, limb gangrene, corneal regeneration, heart damage, Parkinson's disease and spinal cord injury.

Cord Blood America Inc. (CBAI: OTCBB) is expected to report annual revenues this year of approximately $4 million a 500% increase over 2004. They also expect to grow revenues to $10 million in 2006...."

My thoughts: Stemcell research is not going to go away. However if we must "harvest" stem cells, cord blood would probably be the best place. No Babies killed for it, and it can be kept frozen for your own families use.
