Mayo Clinic Orthopedist Shares Perspective on Regenerative Medicine

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Regenerative science has advanced next-generation technologies from the research bench to potential clinical care options. But in the rigorous development of patient therapies, it is critical to validate the safety and efficacy of regenerative solutions. Shane Shapiro, M.D., medical director of the Regenerative Medicine Therapeutics Suites on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus, encourages patients to educate […]

Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome Collaboration

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Mayo Clinic and The Children’s Hospital at OU Medicine in Oklahoma City are collaborating within a consortium to help patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, also known as HLHS, a rare and complex form of congenital heart disease in which the left side of the heart is severely underdeveloped. The collaboration is expanding the development of cell-based, […]

Mayo Clinic Researchers Develop More Efficient System to Reprogram Stem Cells

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Induced pluripotent stem cells, the workhorse of many regenerative medicine projects, start out as differentiated cells that are reprogrammed to pluripotent stem cells by exposure to a complex set of genetic cocktails. Mayo researchers now report that using the measles virus vector; they’ve trimmed that multi-vector process with four reprogramming factors down to a single […]

Leading the Charge in Regenerative Medicine

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Regenerative medicine therapies aim to rebuild and restore health to patients challenged by chronic conditions and degenerative diseases. Despite advances in the field, much of the science is still in early research phases, meaning that many treatments haven’t been proven safe and effective for humans as standard-of-care therapies yet. Because the scientific process is long, […]

Mayo Clinic Goes Back to Space

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Space travel is known to cause wear and tear on astronauts’ bodies, but it’s still not clear how radiation exposure in space affects the function of cells. In particular, what happens to the body’s stem cells, responsible for rebuilding and regenerating normal tissue? In the latest SpaceX-16 resupply mission, which took off December 5th from […]

Animal Model Suggests Metabolic Syndrome May Impair Repair

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

In the body, repair is constant process. So it’s a good thing the body has a Star Trek-like replicator in the mesenchymal stem cell. These act as the raw material for future muscles, cartilage, or bone cells, to name a few. But scientists at Mayo report that if the ship isn’t healthy, the replicator may […]

Shuttling Through Inner Space: How Cells Communicate

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Complex medical issues like transplants, kidney disease, and cancer may be helped by knowing more about how cells communicate. When scientists are lucky, what comes into focus under the microscope also clarifies a new horizon in medicine. One such adventure started with platelet dust. In 1967, the author of an article in the British Journal of […]
