Platelet-rich plasma: A regenerative approach to healing chronic wounds

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

By Madelyn Fell Platelet-rich plasma is the fraction of blood plasma that contains concentrations of platelets that are higher than baseline. Platelet-rich plasma attracts significant interest in the medical and research community since platelets possess various growth factors and cell parts that are critical for tissue repair and regeneration. Autologous platelet-rich plasma therapy uses injections of a […]

Regenerating the rotator cuff

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Preclinical studies discovered a cell-free bioactive material developed at Mayo Clinic triggered healing of one of the most common shoulder injuries. This Mayo Clinic research, published in Biomaterials, documented that purified exosome product —  also known as PEP — promoted repair of rotator cuff injuries faster and more effectively than surgery alone. The rotator cuff […]

Regenerative eyedrops tap blood for tears

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Gregory Williams turned to regenerative medicine for healing after a one-two punch to his health. The 63-year-old Florida man survived leukemia only to develop ocular graft-versus-host disease, a potentially blinding complication of the bone marrow transplant that put his cancer in remission. Ocular graft-versus-host disease is a chronic debilitating condition with no cure that causes […]
