The “rejuvenating” effect of the low molecular weight fraction cord blood (below 10 kDa) on the erythrocyte morphology and the affinity of hemoglobin to oxygen is investigated. The efficiency of using the rehabilitating media containing this fraction to restore the structural and functional properties of red blood cells based on cord blood is shown.
