Pioneering living donor cartilage transplants

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic is poised to establish what is believed to be the first-ever living cartilage donor bank to provide a new regenerative option for healing common knee injuries. That donor bank will lay the foundation for living donor musculoskeletal tissue transplants — a first at Mayo Clinic and possibly in the world — to help […]

3D brain models advance Alzheimer’s disease research at Mayo Clinic

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

A 3D model of brain organoids — “a minibrain in a dish” — mimics human brain structure and provides a new scientific strategy for exploring the pathology of Alzheimer’s disease, Mayo Clinic research discovered. The study, which was published in Nature Communications, finds that the minibrain — an induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cerebral organoid 3D […]

Long-term safety, benefits of stem therapy for heart failure

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

The largest regenerative medicine clinical trial to date for heart failure finds stem cell therapy is safe over the long term and benefits patients with advanced left ventricular enlargement. This multinational research, co-led by Andre Terzic, M.D., Ph.D., director of Mayo Clinic’s Center for Regenerative Medicine, and published in ESC Heart Failure, offers guidance in […]

Stem cell therapy for kidney damage repair

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mesenchymal stem cells derived from a person’s fat cells may help repair kidney damage caused by narrowing blood vessels, Mayo Clinic research has discovered. The research by Stephen Textor, M.D., and his team is published in Kidney International. Mayo Clinic Center for Regenerative Medicine and the National Institutes of Health supported this first-in-human study to […]

Stem cell research to improve hemodialysis

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Stem cell therapy after angioplasty helps keep arteriovenous fistula blood vessels open, Mayo Clinic discovered in animal studies. An arteriovenous fistula is a passageway between an artery and a vein. This research, supported in part by the Mayo Clinic Center for Regenerative Medicine, provides a foundation on which someday patients with end stage renal disease, who […]

Stem cells in space: interstellar research to improve regenerative therapies

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic research is reaching to the cosmos for answers on how to overcome hurdles in engineering human stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells are adult stem cells with potential to unleash the body’s ability to heal diseased tissues and organs. However, growing or culturing stem cells in the laboratory is a slow process, and sometimes […]

Mayo Clinic research discovers how stem cells repair damage from heart attacks

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic researchers have uncovered stem cell-activated mechanisms of healing after a heart attack. Stem cells restored cardiac muscle back to its condition before the heart attack, in turn providing a blueprint of how stem cells may work. The study, published in NPJ Regenerative Medicine, finds that human cardiopoietic cells zero in on damaged proteins […]

Collaboration brings innovative regenerative therapies to babies with rare heart defect

By MayoRegMed MayoRegMed (@mayoregmed)

A collaboration bringing together regional centers and advocacy groups to accelerate innovation and discovery is expanding, bringing clinical trials and expertise to more patients with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) across the country. Led by Mayo Clinic’s Todd and Karen Wanek Family Program for HLHS, the collaboration began in 2017 and now has 10 members. […]
