Researching Stem Cell Therapy for Hemorrhagic Stroke

By Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

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 Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

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 Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

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 […]

Mayo Clinic Orthopedist Shares Perspective on Regenerative Medicine

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

Regenerative science has advanced next-generation technologies from the research bench to potential clinical care options. But in the rigorous development of patient therapies, it is critical to validate the safety and efficacy of regenerative solutions. Shane Shapiro, M.D., medical director of the Regenerative Medicine Therapeutics Suites on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus, encourages patients to educate […]

On Common Ground

By centerforregmedmc 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 (@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 […]
