Restored knee function transforms patient’s life, inspires giving

By MayoRegMed MayoRegMed (@mayoregmed)

Mayo Clinic benefactors James Reibel, M.D., and Barbara Reibel were always on the go — even in retirement. That is until Dr. Reibel’s chronic knee pain became debilitating and threatened the couple’s active lifestyle. Their 25-year patient history with Mayo Clinic led the couple back to Mayo where they learned about regenerative medicine techniques available […]

Stem cells in space: A new frontier in regenerative medicine training

By Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

A Mayo Clinic graduate student is looking to the stars as a new way to advance regenerative therapies for cancer. Rawan Al-Kharboosh, a Ph.D. candidate at Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus, is investigating how stromal vascular fraction stem (SVF) cells react in microgravity and if that may be applied to fight the most deadly type of […]

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

By Jennifer Schutz Jennifer 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 […]

‘Feel the Beat’ is About Hope, Healing and Camaraderie, and it’s Easy to Dance to

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

Families, researchers and clinicians recently came together to raise awareness and celebrate how regenerative research enhances the lives of individuals with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), a rare congenital heart disease. HLHS is a rare and complex form of congenital heart disease in which the left side of a child’s heart is severely underdeveloped. Regenerative […]

Regenerative Strategies for Osteoarthritis: Jonathan Finnoff, D.O.

By Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of your bones wears down over time. While the significant pain, limited activity, and decreased quality of life that affect patients with osteoarthritis can usually be managed, the damage to joints can’t […]

Regeneration for All

By Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

With growing public awareness and broader academic engagement, the prospect of pioneering a change in disease management has propelled the field of regenerative medicine. The ability to build, scale and apply biotherapeutic technologies and solutions that are not cost prohibitive will become increasingly important elements that drive progress in regenerative medicine. In a recently published […]

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

By Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

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 Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

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 Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

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 […]
