Washington: A little girl in US was able to get out the vegetative state she was reduced to after a brain injury, thanks to cord blood stem cells.When Sparrow Morris fell into the family’s swimming pool, she was left unconscious and without oxygen for 45 minutes. It caused severe brain damage and she was left in a vegetative state unable to sit or speak.“She had a contorted body,” Fox News quoted Tonya Morris, Sparrow’s mother, as saying.The Morris’, who have 8 children, had decided to bank Sparrow’s cord blood earler but didn’t think they’d ever need to use it.Fifteen months after her injury, doctors reinfused the cord blood into Sparrow as part of a trial at Duke University.Morris said she noticed a difference in her daughter the next day.“She was excited, walking better… she spontaneously started talking to me,” she said.
