Researching Stem Cells for Kidney Disease: LaTonya Hickson, M.D.

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Diabetic kidney disease (DKD) is a serious complication of diabetes. Up to 40 percent of people with diabetes eventually develop kidney disease. With no long-term treatment available, many patients will progress to end stage kidney disease requiring either dialysis or a kidney transplant. Research is underway to keep people from progressing to kidney failure, and […]

Gerstner Regenerative Medicine Initiative: Tracking Outcomes and Supporting Clinical Trials

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

One of the challenges of integrating regenerative medicine into daily patient care is that it is so new, there is not a lot of available data to consider when determining best practices. A recent grant will help track information on how patient do after clinical trials. The Gerstner Regenerative Medicine Initiative, funded through a grant […]

Bioartificial Liver: Bridge to Liver Regeneration

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

The liver has the greatest regenerative capacity of any organ in the body. However, when the liver is injured beyond its ability to regenerate itself, and a transplant is not readily available, there are few options for patients. Led by Scott Nyberg, M.D., Ph.D., researchers are refining their own version of a bioartificial liver, known […]

Researching Stem Cell Therapy for Hemorrhagic Stroke

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

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 […]

HLHS Consortium Gives Hope to Babies with Rare Congenital Heart Defect

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) is a rare disease that affects approximately 1 of every 4,300 babies every year.  HLHS is a congenital heart defect in which the left side of the heart is underdeveloped. It occurs during fetal growth when the baby’s heart is developing. Without immediate intervention after birth, 95% of infants with […]
