Regenerative Medicine in Novel Fetal Therapy Program

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

A life-saving procedure improves fetal lung health and reduces post-natal complications Specialists at Mayo Clinic are pioneering a life-saving procedure as part of a clinical trial for babies with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). When a baby’s lungs are not adequately developed at birth, severe complications and even death can result. Waiting for the baby to be […]

Epilepsy Patient Married and Seizure-Free After New Treatment at Mayo Clinic

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

Epilepsy is a central nervous system disorder in which nerve cell activity in the brain becomes disrupted. It is one of the most common neurologic conditions, affecting about 3 million Americans. However, only two-thirds of patients get some relief from medications. “But that leaves a third or roughly a million people with epilepsy who, despite […]

Accelerated Stem Cell Production: Mayo Clinic Radio Interview

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared the way for a new method of stem cell production at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. It’s an automated system that is capable of producing billions of stem cells in a short amount of time. It took more than four years to develop the process, and […]
