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 […]

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 […]
