Regenerating muscles after cancer surgery

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

Advancements in microsurgery are making it possible to harness the body’s healing power to regenerate muscle strength after some cancer surgeries, particularly surgery to remove soft tissue sarcoma. Mayo Clinic orthopedic oncologists are teaming with plastic surgeons in a procedure they’ve coined “oncoregeneration.” They are seeking to perfect this procedure in which large muscle is […]

Using stem cells to find causes and treatments to prevent sudden cardiac death

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

Mystified by the need for defibrillation to save a 10-year-old from drowning, Michael Ackerman, M.D., Ph.D., vowed to dig for answers. That pivotal case during a Mayo Clinic pediatric cardiology residency was the catalyst for Dr. Ackerman’s career in genetic sleuthing of inherited sudden cardiac death syndromes. With help from the Center for Regenerative Medicine […]

Stem cells in space: interstellar research to improve regenerative therapies

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

Mayo Clinic research is reaching to the cosmos for answers on how to overcome hurdles in engineering human stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells are adult stem cells with potential to unleash the body’s ability to heal diseased tissues and organs. However, growing or culturing stem cells in the laboratory is a slow process, and sometimes […]

Mayo Clinic research finds spina bifida surgery before birth restores brain structure

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

Surgery performed on a fetus in the womb to repair defects from spina bifida triggers the body’s ability to restore normal brain structure, Mayo Clinic research discovered. Research by Rodrigo Ruano, M.D., Ph.D., chair of Mayo Clinic’s Division of Maternal and Fetal Medicine, finds that fetal surgery to correct congenital spinal cord defects is more […]

Regenerating diseased bones

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

Kendall Koens’ life is a dramatic reversal from what it was in 2006. Late stage cancer left him in a coma and on a ventilator fighting for survival. Aggressive chemotherapy was saving his life but slowly and silently destroying his hips joints. The financial planner from Rochester faced crippling pain typical of someone more than […]

Mayo Clinic research discovers how stem cells repair damage from heart attacks

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

Mayo Clinic researchers have uncovered stem cell-activated mechanisms of healing after a heart attack. Stem cells restored cardiac muscle back to its condition before the heart attack, in turn providing a blueprint of how stem cells may work. The study, published in NPJ Regenerative Medicine, finds that human cardiopoietic cells zero in on damaged proteins […]
