A step toward a cell-free solution for stress urinary incontinence

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Skeletal muscle regenerated and symptoms of stress urinary incontinence improved in preclinical models after use of a cell-free product discovered at Mayo Clinic. In one of the first studies of its kind, Mayo Clinic researchers learned this noncellular approach can restore muscle function and bladder control in preclinical models. The teams of Atta Behfar, M.D., […]

LaTonya Hickson, M.D.: Seeking a cellular therapy for chronic kidney disease

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Every year, more than 130,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with end-stage kidney disease, with most cases caused by diabetes. Newer therapies show promise to slow kidney failure rates, but none stop progression to end-stage kidney failure. The research goal of LaTonya Hickson, M.D., is to develop a cell-based therapy that slows — or […]

Stem cells show therapeutic hope for chronic lung rejection

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Stem cells show potential to safely slow progression of organ rejection in some lung transplant recipients, according to early Mayo Clinic research. This discovery offers hope of one day providing a cellular therapeutic to extend the lives of patients who would not qualify for a second lung transplant after organ rejection. The research team of […]
