By Naseem S. Miller

Linda Baumgartner, a listening and spoken language specialist at the Clarke School for Hearing and Speech, and her husband, Dr. James Baumgartner who is the surgical director of Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at Florida State conducted a study to see if Umbilical cord blood could help treat hearing loss in kids. The study was conducted to see if they could expand the different types of treatment for hearing loss in kids. Linda and James decided to test out umbilical cord blood because it is one of the richest sources of stem cells.

They conducted the study by enrolling 11 different children of both genders and from the ages of 6 months to 6 years old. The study was broken into different phases and lasted over 4 years. The results from the study varied between kids and they took away vital evaluations that will help them expand their research.
