Banking on stem cells?

Call toll free (866) 400-7333, (985) 867-8002 or visit LifeSourceCryobank.com

Stem cells are a hot medical topic as more and more therapies are approved by the FDA for treatments for bone marrow and blood disorders such as leukemia. LifeSource Cryobank is the only facility in Louisiana that offers cryopreservation of Stem Cells from Umbilical Cord Blood (UCB). Today these cells represent a biological insurance that if a chronic or catastrophic illness strikes, they could save or give a better quality of life to your baby or a close family member. Twenty-five years after the world’s first stem cell transplant, more people are considering privately banking UCB Stem Cells as a biological insurance. 

New views on contact lenses

Eyecare Associates, 4324 Veterans Blvd., Metairie, 455-9825, EyecareNewOrleans.com

Contact lenses were invented in 1887 in Germany, but they would look very different from the ones worn today by between 28-38 million Americans. One of the latest developments is a water-based lens that’s extremely comfortable to wear. Eyecare Associates in Metairie has been selected as one of the first offices in the New Orleans area to sell this type of lens, called Dailies Total1. They also offer a range of lenses for people who have been previously unsuccessful with contacts or who have been told their prescriptions are too complex.
