Any benefit to banking cord blood w/HIV+ mother
Feb 7, 2001

If you are an HIV+ mother, is there any benefit to banking/saving cord blood following delivery of a child? Is there a possibility that as with cancer & other illnesses, that a substance in the cord blood may someday be helpful w/regards to an HIV treatment for the mother (or the child if need be)?

Response from Dr. Jackson

I think that it is very unlikely.


Lymph node pathology, how accurate is that?
