Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Abstract. The amniotic fluid (AF) provides a source of stem cells with potential use for in utero cell gene therapy to treat congenital disease for the following reasons: (1) amniotic fluid stem cells (AFSCs) are broadly multipotent with high self-renewal capacity, low antigenicity that are able to differentiate into lineages of all three germ layers but are not tumorigenic when injected in.

Health care–associated infections in the NICU result in increased morbidity and mortality, prolonged lengths of stay, and increased medical costs.
