LaTonya Hickson, M.D.: Seeking a cellular therapy for chronic kidney disease

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Every year, more than 130,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with end-stage kidney disease, with most cases caused by diabetes. Newer therapies show promise to slow kidney failure rates, but none stop progression to end-stage kidney failure. The research goal of LaTonya Hickson, M.D., is to develop a cell-based therapy that slows — or […]

Regenerative pipeline for spinal cord repair

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

Article by Sara Tiner Mayo Clinic research is learning how stem cell therapy can treat neurodegenerative diseases. Mayo is among the first to study whether stem cell therapy might trigger healing for spinal cord injury. Research is ongoing in preclinical models, but it also has advanced from discovery science to early clinical trials. It’s a […]
