Bioartificial liver: Bridge to liver regeneration

By Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz

The liver has the greatest regenerative capacity of any organ in the body. However, when the liver is injured beyond its ability to regenerate itself, and a transplant is not readily available, there are few options for patients. Led by Scott Nyberg, M.D., Ph.D., researchers are refining their own version of a bioartificial liver, known as […]

Research for infants with HLHS moves forward

By Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz

Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) is a complex and rare heart defect present at birth in which the left side of a child’s heart is severely underdeveloped. At Mayo Clinic, physicians and researchers in the Todd and Karen Wanek Family Program for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome are looking for ways to delay or even prevent heart failure for […]

Mayo Clinic Startup Earns World Economic Forum Award

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

With the promise of potential lifesaving treatments like chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-Cell therapy comes complex challenges. For instance: how can we be sure the right cells are going to the right patient? How can we communicate problems with manufacturing that would affect a patient’s treatment schedule? To address those concerns, Mayo Clinic startup company […]

Research breathes new air into donor lungs

By Advancing the Science contributor Advancing the Science contributor

By Sara Nick Four hundred: That’s the number of U.S. patients who die each year awaiting a lung transplant, or are removed from the wait list when they become too ill. Now, cutting-edge research underway on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus aims to save as many of those lives as possible. “We’re hoping to wipe out […]

HLHS consortium gives hope to babies with rare congenital heart defect

By Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz

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 HLHS […]

Researching stem cell therapy for hemorrhagic stroke

By Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz

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 […]

Mayo Clinic course addresses education gap

By Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz

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 needs in […]

Leading the charge in regenerative medicine

By Jennifer Schutz Jennifer Schutz

Regenerative medicine therapies aim to rebuild and restore health to patients challenged by chronic conditions and degenerative diseases. Despite advances in the field, much of the science is still in early research phases, meaning that many treatments haven’t been proven safe and effective for humans as standard-of-care therapies yet. Because the scientific process is long, […]
