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

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

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 centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

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 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 […]

New Florida Building Dedicated to Medical Discovery and Innovation

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

The grand opening of the new Discovery and Innovation Building at Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus signals a new era of integrating regenerative medicine into daily practice. Regenerative medicine seeks to tap the body’s ability to replace, restore or regrow damaged or diseased cells, tissues and organs. A hub of research and technology, the new building […]

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 […]

Research for Infants with HLHS Moves Forward

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) is a complex and rare heart defect present at birth in which the left side of a child’s heart is severely underdeveloped. At Mayo Clinic, physicians and researchers in the Todd and Karen Wanek Family Program for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome are looking for ways to delay or even prevent heart failure […]

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 […]

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 […]
