Cord blood is blood that comes from umbilical cords, and contains a significant amount of hematopoietic stem cells. Specialized cord blood banks are available to store this blood. Cord blood stem cells are considered far superior to stem cells from bone marrow. Parents often have their newborn's cord blood preserved in the event it may be needed at some point in the future for treatment of their child's or the child's sibling's cancer or genetic disease.

Numerous diseases have been treated with cord blood. As an example, several years ago, The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle, Washington made a major breakthrough in the use of umbilical cord blood to treat blood cancers such as leukemia. The discovery dramatically decreases the recovery time of white blood cells.

Even the U.S. House of Representatives recently passed a bill to extend the federal cord blood program. For additional information on cord blood and how it is collected, stored, and used, go to CordBloodStocks.com.

The cord blood industry is significant and continues to grow. Even Richard Branson, of Virgin Records and Virgin America (VA) fame, is in the cord blood business, setting up Virgin Health, a cord blood bank.

Investors can choose either the cord blood banks or the companies that use cord blood to develop cures. Here are some stocks that participate in the cord blood business. Be aware that some of these companies have low market caps and are very speculative.

The stock has a PE ratio of 9 and pays a yield of 1.3%.

PerkinElmer, Inc. (PKI) owns ViaCell, a Cambridge, Massachusetts company which sells ViaCord, a product which is used to preserve baby's umbilical cord blood.

Celgene (CELG) This New Jersey company is involved in the discovery, production, and marketing of therapies designed to treat cancer and immune-inflammatory-related diseases. They own LifeBank USA, a cord blood bank. The P/E is 47.6.

They have recently generated negative earnings.

NSA: EFF's First Amendment Challenge to NSA Spying]]> EFF has long believed that the First Amendment is as important to thinking about the NSA's Spying as the Fourth Amendment. When the government can track to whom you talk, when and for how long, like it did with the telephone records collection under section 215 of the Patriot Act, it knows with whom you associate. When it tracks who talks to politically active organizations, it scares people out of participating in the political and social issues of the day.
