A regenerative reset for aging

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Regenerative medicine could slow the clock on degenerative diseases that often ravage the golden years, a Mayo Clinic study finds. Life span has nearly doubled since the 1950s, but health span — the number of disease-free years — has not kept pace. According to a paper published in NPJ Regenerative Medicine., people are generally living […]

Platelet-rich plasma: A regenerative approach to healing chronic wounds

By Advancing the Science contributor Advancing the Science contributor (@advancingthescience)

By Madelyn Fell Platelet-rich plasma is the fraction of blood plasma that contains concentrations of platelets that are higher than baseline. Platelet-rich plasma attracts significant interest in the medical and research community since platelets possess various growth factors and cell parts that are critical for tissue repair and regeneration. Autologous platelet-rich plasma therapy uses injections of a […]

Addressing corticophobia — Calming parents’ fears using the Rochester Epidemiology Project

By Elizabeth Zimmermann Elizabeth Zimmermann (@elizabethzimmermann)

Today’s parents face an almost constant bombardment of guidance, warnings, advice, anecdotal information and suppositions regarding their child’s health and wellbeing. Even the most well-read parents may struggle to find the facts among the fiction — or to figure out which facts are true for their child. This constant barrage of often conflicting information can […]

Dispelling the hype of stem cell interventions

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Physicians need more resources, tools and education to counsel patients about emerging stem cell therapies, a study in Mayo Clinic Proceedings concludes. Interest in regenerative procedures is mushrooming along with an increase in chronic diseases that have few therapeutic options. The study examined how physicians at the intersection of complex conditions, regenerative discoveries and responsible […]

A robotic GPS for targeting, delivering regenerative biotherapies

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

A remote-controlled bronchoscope that acts like a GPS system hunts down hard to find lung masses and accurately biopsies them, according to a Mayo Clinic collaborative study. This multisite research, which is published in Annals of Thoracic Surgery, lays the foundation for precisely finding early stage cancer and targeting it with regenerative biotherapeutics needed to […]
