Increasing the Odds

By Lynda de Widt ldewidt

Increasing the Odds Mayo Clinic performs more transplants than any other organization in the country. That experience allows Mayo Clinic scientist-physicians to study stem cells and personalize drugs to fight organ rejection and increase the number of viable lungs. Immune-Building Stem Cell Research In the 1970s, when Cesar A. Keller, M.D., started his career in […]

The Case for Stem Cell Treatments for ALS

By Angela Bingham angelabingham

When nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord stop working normally there is a noticeable change in muscle movement and activity. Motor neurons work with the brain to control muscle movement such as gripping and walking. These activities become increasingly difficult with the onset of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou […]

New strategies could make laryngectomies a thing of the past

By Elizabeth Zimmermann Young elizabethzimmermann

About 60,000 Americans have had their larynx removed due to disease or trauma. These people are missing out on many of life’s little pleasures because the procedure’s resultant hole left them without a voice and created an opening directly into their lungs. A simple shower is dangerous as even the slightest amount of water in […]

Mayo Uses Regenerative Medicine to Contribute to Mitochondrial Disease Repair

By Bob Nellis bobnellis

Mitochondrial disease has been one of the toughest conditions in medicine. It primarily impacts children inheriting the condition, leaving few if any treatment options. Today, a collaborative group of researchers — including those from Mayo Clinic’s Center for Regenerative Medicine, report they have found a way to eliminate the fatal mutations the inherited DNA leaves in cells. The […]
