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 […]

Stem cell research to improve hemodialysis

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Stem cell therapy after angioplasty helps keep arteriovenous fistula blood vessels open, Mayo Clinic discovered in animal studies. An arteriovenous fistula is a passageway between an artery and a vein. This research, supported in part by the Mayo Clinic Center for Regenerative Medicine, provides a foundation on which someday patients with end stage renal disease, who […]

Using stem cells to find causes and treatments to prevent sudden cardiac death

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mystified by the need for defibrillation to save a 10-year-old from drowning, Michael Ackerman, M.D., Ph.D., vowed to dig for answers. That pivotal case during a Mayo Clinic pediatric cardiology residency was the catalyst for Dr. Ackerman’s career in genetic sleuthing of inherited sudden cardiac death syndromes. With help from the Center for Regenerative Medicine […]

Stem cells in space: interstellar research to improve regenerative therapies

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic research is reaching to the cosmos for answers on how to overcome hurdles in engineering human stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells are adult stem cells with potential to unleash the body’s ability to heal diseased tissues and organs. However, growing or culturing stem cells in the laboratory is a slow process, and sometimes […]
