Neuro Regeneration for Chemo Brain: Mi-Hyeon Jang, Ph.D.

By Jen Schutz Jen Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

Cognitive dysfunction, sometimes called “chemo brain,” stemming from chemotherapy is a major adverse condition affecting approximately 14 million cancer patients and survivors in the United States. Although chemo brain has been widely reported by patients and clinicians, the cause of concentration and memory problems in cancer patients is not well understood. Mayo Clinic researchers are […]

Spinal Cord Stimulation, Physical Therapy Help Paralyzed Man Stand, Walk With Assistance

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

Spinal cord stimulation and physical therapy have helped a man paralyzed since 2013 regain his ability to stand and walk with assistance. The results, achieved in a research collaboration between Mayo Clinic and UCLA, are reported in Nature Medicine. With an implanted stimulator turned on, the man, Jered Chinnock, was able to step with a front-wheeled […]

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 […]

Clinical Trial Investigates Stem Cell Therapies for Spinal Cord Injuries

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

Mayo Clinic neurosurgeon, Mohamad Bydon, M.D., is a research grant recipient from Regenerative Medicine Minnesota. His clinical trial investigates whether adipose-derived (fat tissue-derived) mesenchymal stem cells can be safely administered into the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with traumatic spinal cord injury and what the effects this may have on functional improvement, activities of daily living, […]

Neuroregeneration Lab Opens on Florida Campus

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

There’s a new lab on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus — and it’s not the traditional basic science lab. After a few months of construction and renovation, the Mayo Clinic Neuroregeneration Lab opened on the second floor of the Birdsall Research Building, significantly expanding the reach of regenerative medicine on campus. The nearly 500 square feet […]
