Harnessing the body’s ability to heal

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

Researchers at Mayo Clinic are studying ways to engineer human-like tissue to bolster the body’s ability to heal itself. Scientists in the Regenerative Medicine Biomaterials and Biomolecules Lab have engineered biomaterials that could regenerate tissue capable of restoring injured nerves and bones. They’ve discovered that biomaterials derived from polymers are biodegradable. When used along with […]

Seeking a regenerative therapy for chronic dry mouth

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

Mayo Clinic researchers are seeking a regenerative therapy for a vexing problem, particularly among cancer patients. How can medical providers treat a condition in which the mouth is so parched that it has an incessant feeling of a cotton lining? Xerostomia, also known as chronic dry mouth, is an agonizing side effect of injury to […]

A discovery step toward cell replacement therapy for diabetes

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

In what could be a step toward cell replacement therapy for diabetes, Mayo Clinic researchers have discovered how to manufacture cells capable of generating a hormone that regulates low blood sugar. Quinn Peterson, Ph.D. and his team have developed a new method of mass producing a cell product containing the hormone glucagon that is capable […]
