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 […]

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 […]
