From New York, New York, USA:
My 9 year old nephew has diabetes. I am pregnant and wondering if preservation of the core cells (in my placenta) could be potentially helpful for him or general diabetic research. I'd appreciate your opinion on this matter.
As far as I am aware, saving any tissue from your placenta will not help your nephew.
