Regenerating muscles after cancer surgery

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Advancements in microsurgery are making it possible to harness the body’s healing power to regenerate muscle strength after some cancer surgeries, particularly surgery to remove soft tissue sarcoma. Mayo Clinic orthopedic oncologists are teaming with plastic surgeons in a procedure they’ve coined “oncoregeneration.” They are seeking to perfect this procedure in which large muscle is […]

Off the Shelf Vessels: A Regenerative Approach for Coronary Artery Bypass

By Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

Growing blood vessels in a lab for human use may sound like a futuristic dream. However, Mayo Clinic researchers are seeking to do just that to advance a regenerative approach to coronary bypass graft surgery. Through a Regenerative Medicine Minnesota grant, a Mayo research team is developing tissue that could grow into a blood vessel […]

Mayo Clinic research is a step toward hope for spinal cord injuries

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Early research published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings examines the first case at Mayo Clinic of stem cell therapy tested in humans for spinal cord injury. The case study found stem cell intervention, which took place after standard surgery, and physical and occupational therapy, restored some function in a patient with spinal cord injury. The report, […]

Neuro Regeneration for Chemo Brain: Mi-Hyeon Jang, Ph.D.

By Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

Cognitive dysfunction, sometimes called “chemo brain,” stemming from chemotherapy is a major adverse condition affecting approximately 14 million cancer patients and survivors in the United States. Although chemo brain has been widely reported by patients and clinicians, the cause of concentration and memory problems in cancer patients is not well understood. Mayo Clinic researchers are […]
