Press Release: Metascreen, A Guard Against 'Sudden Death'

Tuesday, January 13, 2015

     Nearly one baby every hour each day dies abruptly. An estimated 7,000 babies die each year without warning.[i]

     Parents are left clueless after the death as the possible causes remain unknown even after undergoing autopsy. All because of the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
     SIDS is the unexplained death of babies usually occurring during sleep and striking under unexpected circumstances. 

     Even a healthy one-year old baby may be a victim of the condition which is often simply attributed to physical and environmental factors.

     Studies have shown that babies with physical conditions including brain abnormalities, low birth weight and respiratory infection have higher risk of dying an unexplained death. 

     Still some studies indicated that an infant’s sleeping position may also be a cause. Babies sleeping on their stomach side are more prone as they may suffer more difficulty in breathing. Those sleeping on soft surfaces and with their parents are also at risk. [ii]

Press Release: Your baby’s precious CORD blood can save his precious life

Thursday, September 18, 2014

     As mothers, you will do anything for your child. Even way before they are brought into this world, your instincts kick in and you tirelessly worry about your baby. You want to learn everything there is to learn and more importantly, you want to protect them from anything and everything that can harm them be it the common cold or a fever; and if you had your way, you would gladly get sick for your child. And your anxiety is not without reason, since there are many childhood diseases that can be harmful or even fatal to children. 

    Leukemia is perhaps the most common type of cancer compromising 47.8% of all childhood cancers1. Hodgkin’s Disease1 or non-Hodgkin Lymphoma is the third childhood cancer comprising 9% of childhood cancer. Aside from these types of cancers, certain brain disorders are also common in children. These include cerebral palsy and neuroblastoma. Cerebral palsy severely impairs the development of the motor functions and afflicts 1-2 percent of the Philippine population2. Neuroblastoma, on the other hand, causes the sufferer to lose the ability to empty the bladder, experience paralysis of the hips, feet, legs and uncontrolled movement.

     Research into the use of cord blood and cord lining stem cells have been ongoing since the 1980s and has shown promise of saving lives and treating life-threatening diseases. More than 30,000 cord blood stem cell transplants3 have already been performed since 1988. To know more about Cordlife, click CONTINUE READING please.
