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 […]

Stem Cell Hope for Stroke

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Stroke is the leading cause of permanent disability in the U.S., striking nearly 800,000 people each year. Hemorrhagic, or bleeding, stroke is particularly devastating, says Mayo Clinic neurologist and critical care expert William Freeman, M.D. “About 40 percent of hemorrhagic stroke patients die within a month, and half of the survivors have some type of impairment,” he adds. Dr. Freeman, […]

Mayo Clinic and NASA – Exploring Two Frontiers

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

This story was previously published in Discovery’s Edge, Mayo Clinic’s research magazine. Space—with near-zero gravity, no atmosphere, and extremes of heat and cold—is an unusual and often hostile environment. But it’s also an opportunity—for medical researchers who see maladies and phenomena they can scarcely examine in the familiar environment of Earth. Several Mayo Clinic researchers […]

Stem Cells Splash Down From Space

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

After nearly a month orbiting the Earth attached to the International Space Station, the SpaceX Dragon capsule containing Dr. Abba Zubair’s stem cell research detached from the station and returned to Earth. The Dragon was recovered in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of southern California, on March 19. After SpaceX turns over the contents […]

Stem Cells in Space: Testing Stroke Treatment

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

Abba Zubair, M.D., Ph.D, believes that cells grown in the International Space Station (ISS) could help patients recover from a stroke, and that it may even be possible to generate human tissues and organs in space. Dr. Zubair says, “On Earth, we face many challenges in trying to grow enough stem cells to treat patients. It […]
