Bioartificial Liver: Bridge to Liver Regeneration

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

The liver has the greatest regenerative capacity of any organ in the body. However, when the liver is injured beyond its ability to regenerate itself, and a transplant is not readily available, there are few options for patients. Led by Scott Nyberg, M.D., Ph.D., researchers are refining their own version of a bioartificial liver, known […]

Researching Stem Cell Therapy for Hemorrhagic Stroke

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Stroke is the leading cause of permanent disability in the U.S., striking nearly 800,000 people each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the last decade, there has been preclinical research that led to a small number of early phase clinical trials using mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) as a possible treatment to reverse […]

HLHS Consortium Gives Hope to Babies with Rare Congenital Heart Defect

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) is a rare disease that affects approximately 1 of every 4,300 babies every year.  HLHS is a congenital heart defect in which the left side of the heart is underdeveloped. It occurs during fetal growth when the baby’s heart is developing. Without immediate intervention after birth, 95% of infants with […]

A Regulator of Stem Cells

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Ouch! The response is always the same to the sharp, sudden surprise of a paper cut. The body responds quickly to the tear in the skin and sends resources for protection. An abundant enzyme in the blood, thrombin, causes changes in other blood proteins to produce a gel like substance that forms the clot. It’s what causes […]

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 […]

Stem Cells and Chronic Kidney Disease

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Millions of Americans have chronic kidney disease. Hundreds of thousands will progress to end stage kidney disease requiring either dialysis or kidney transplant. But research is underway to keep people from reaching that point. “Our goal is to take a look at how we can repair the diabetic kidney in terms of delaying the rate […]
