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 […]

Mayo Clinic Course Addresses Education Gap: Building the Regenerative Medicine Workforce

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Regenerative medicine is redefining clinical care—going beyond disease symptom management to addressing the underlying cause of disease to restore health. Regenerative care is expected to represent 10% of all health care in the next decade. Yet, education in regenerative medicine lags behind scientific and clinical advances. This threatens to leave physicians-in-training ill-equipped to address changing […]

On Common Ground

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Shrill screams caused Berneice Baumann to stop what she was doing and rush into the kitchen. She found her 1-year-old son, Duane, sitting on the floor in tears. He’d pulled an electric coffeepot on top of himself, and the boiling liquid scalded him from the neck down. A local doctor did his best to treat […]

A Regulator of Stem Cells

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Ouch! The response is always the same to the sharp, sudden surprise of a paper cut. The body responds quickly to the tear in the skin and sends resources for protection. An abundant enzyme in the blood, thrombin, causes changes in other blood proteins to produce a gel like substance that forms the clot. It’s what causes […]

Mayo Clinic Researchers Develop More Efficient System to Reprogram Stem Cells

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Induced pluripotent stem cells, the workhorse of many regenerative medicine projects, start out as differentiated cells that are reprogrammed to pluripotent stem cells by exposure to a complex set of genetic cocktails. Mayo researchers now report that using the measles virus vector; they’ve trimmed that multi-vector process with four reprogramming factors down to a single […]
