Stem cell therapy for kidney damage repair

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mesenchymal stem cells derived from a person’s fat cells may help repair kidney damage caused by narrowing blood vessels, Mayo Clinic research has discovered. The research by Stephen Textor, M.D., and his team is published in Kidney International. Mayo Clinic Center for Regenerative Medicine and the National Institutes of Health supported this first-in-human study to […]

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

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

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 […]

Researching Stem Cell Therapy for Hemorrhagic Stroke

By Jen Schutz Jen Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

Stroke is the leading cause of permanent disability in the U.S., striking nearly 800,000 people each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the last decade, there has been preclinical research that led to a small number of early phase clinical trials using mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) as a possible treatment to reverse […]

Animal Model Suggests Metabolic Syndrome May Impair Repair

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

In the body, repair is constant process. So it’s a good thing the body has a Star Trek-like replicator in the mesenchymal stem cell. These act as the raw material for future muscles, cartilage, or bone cells, to name a few. But scientists at Mayo report that if the ship isn’t healthy, the replicator may […]

Persistence Powers Mayo Clinic’s Approach to Adult-Derived Stem Cell Therapies

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

This story was previously published in Mayo Clinic Magazine. Allan B. Dietz, Ph.D., never intended to be a scientist. His plan was to be a farmer, just like his father, grandfather and all the other Dietzes he knew. “I was going to be a farmer at first. Then I was going to be a veterinarian […]
