Reimagining stem cell cultivation

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic has discovered how to microencapsulate pluripotent stem cells to potentially make them easier and less expensive to process and more effective for fighting disease. This research by Alexander Revzin, Ph.D., a Mayo Clinic biomedical engineer, is published in Bioactive Materials. “Human pluripotent stem cells hold considerable promise as a source of adult cellsfor […]

Identifying best candidates with avascular necrosis for regenerative alternative to hip replacement

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

A regenerative alternative to total hip replacement delayed the need for artificial implants by at least seven years for 35% of patients who had surgery to treat avascular necrosis. That condition occurs when blood flow to the hip joint known as the femoral head is constricted, causing bone cells to die. This Mayo Clinic research, […]

From pediatric patient to promising researcher

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

When Delaney Liskey was 11, a mysterious temporary loss of eyesight triggered her vision for patient-driven research that integrates personal experience into scientific inquiry. She was diagnosed with pediatric onset multiple sclerosis (MS) — a rare form of the neurological disorder  in which the inflammatory system attacks the central nervous system, disrupting signals between the […]

Regenerative technology uncovers new discoveries in liver disease

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic researchers have developed a method for generating bile duct cells from stem cells. This technology enables them to study important aspects of primary sclerosing cholangitis, a rare bile duct disease that often destroys the liver. Using these regenerative technologies, Robert Huebert, M.D., and Nidhi Jalan Sakrikar, Ph.D., also confirmed that primary sclerosing cholangitis […]

A regenerative reset for aging

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Regenerative medicine could slow the clock on degenerative diseases that often ravage the golden years, a Mayo Clinic study finds. Life span has nearly doubled since the 1950s, but health span — the number of disease-free years — has not kept pace. According to a paper published in NPJ Regenerative Medicine., people are generally living […]

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 […]
