Understanding the inner workings of CAR-T therapy

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic researchers have biomanufactured chimeric antigen receptor-T cell therapy  (CAR-T cell therapy) in a new way to track the cells’ cancer fighting journey and predict toxic side effects. This Mayo Clinic breakthrough, published in Cancer Immunology Research, also could unravel the mystery of how to unleash CAR-T cell therapy to destroy solid tumors. “This […]

Regenerating the rotator cuff

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Preclinical studies discovered a cell-free bioactive material developed at Mayo Clinic triggered healing of one of the most common shoulder injuries. This Mayo Clinic research, published in Biomaterials, documented that purified exosome product —  also known as PEP — promoted repair of rotator cuff injuries faster and more effectively than surgery alone. The rotator cuff […]

The importance of individualized regenerative medicine

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Individualized screening, guided by artificial intelligence (AI) and biomarkers, can optimize the transformative potential of regenerative medicine, according to a Mayo Clinic study. The paper, published in Biomarkers in Medicine, maintains that using new scientific tools to match the right biotherapeutics to the right patient ushers in the era of achieving tailored regenerative care. Conversely, […]

Triggering the body’s ability to heal

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Erwin Kruger, M.D., is motivated by challenges that evolve into enhanced clinical care. He chose the rigors of college, medical school and fellowships in the U.S. rather than an easier road to medical school straight out of high school in his native country of Nicaragua. His career path since then has been a circuitous journey […]

Demystifying healing potential of stem cells

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic research has discovered proteins secreted by human stem cells that act as a “magic potion” to drive healing after a heart attack. The research uncovered that these cell-released regenerative particles harbor a pattern of functions mirrored in repair of the diseased heart, linking stem cell-transmitted information to the beneficial response of the recipient […]
