Demystifying healing potential of stem cells

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic research has discovered proteins secreted by human stem cells that act as a “magic potion” to drive healing after a heart attack. The research uncovered that these cell-released regenerative particles harbor a pattern of functions mirrored in repair of the diseased heart, linking stem cell-transmitted information to the beneficial response of the recipient […]

Could regenerative medicine relieve neck, back pain?

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic is looking to regenerative medicine as a potential long-term solution for degenerative disk disease that has for years eluded medical science. Millions of people in the U.S. are afflicted with chronic neck and back pain that often comes after years of wear and tear on the spine. Current treatments provide only temporary relief […]

Regenerative pipeline for spinal cord repair

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

Article by Sara Tiner Mayo Clinic research is learning how stem cell therapy can treat neurodegenerative diseases. Mayo is among the first to study whether stem cell therapy might trigger healing for spinal cord injury. Research is ongoing in preclinical models, but it also has advanced from discovery science to early clinical trials. It’s a […]

Inspired to deliver new regenerative healing solutions

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Growing up the son of a neurologist in China, Ao “Kevin” Shi, often would read his mother’s medical journals that featured Mayo Clinic research. Inspired, he pursued a career as a physician-scientist. Shi is now writing his own scholarly papers at Mayo Clinic that could transform care for people with peripheral vascular disease. Shi is […]

How regenerative medicine is advancing ALS research

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

May is ALS Awareness Month, a time to reflect on the role of regenerative medicine research in advancing understanding and treatment of  amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s disease. This neurodegenerative disorder causes nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to die, blocking signals to the muscles. That results in paralysis that robs […]

Mayo Clinic preclinical study triggers wound healing, skin regeneration

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Difficult-to-treat, chronic wounds in preclinical models healed with normal scar-free skin after treatment with an acellular product discovered at Mayo Clinic. Derived from platelets, the purified exosome product, known as PEP, was used to deliver healing messages into cells of preclinical animal models of ischemic wounds. The Mayo Clinic research team documented […]

‘Disease in a dish’ research to advance regenerative solutions for MS

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

A desire to stop the debilitating, life-changing symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS) inspires Charles Howe, Ph.D., to take his investigation beyond standard research in the quest for regenerative therapies that protect nerves and promote healing. Dr. Howe’s team at Mayo Clinic seeks to answer whether axons — the neuronal wires that send brain signals to […]

The pivotal role of nursing in regenerative medicine

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Nurses are uniquely positioned to counteract a  pandemic of chronic diseases by integrating regenerative medicine into patient care, a Mayo Clinic study finds. To execute this pivotal role, the stalwarts on the frontlines of health care should stay abreast of research, be trained in regenerative education and embrace new regenerative technologies, according to the paper […]
