Reimagining stem cell cultivation

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic has discovered how to microencapsulate pluripotent stem cells to potentially make them easier and less expensive to process and more effective for fighting disease. This research by Alexander Revzin, Ph.D., a Mayo Clinic biomedical engineer, is published in Bioactive Materials. “Human pluripotent stem cells hold considerable promise as a source of adult cellsfor […]

Identifying best candidates with avascular necrosis for regenerative alternative to hip replacement

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

A regenerative alternative to total hip replacement delayed the need for artificial implants by at least seven years for 35% of patients who had surgery to treat avascular necrosis. That condition occurs when blood flow to the hip joint known as the femoral head is constricted, causing bone cells to die. This Mayo Clinic research, […]

From pediatric patient to promising researcher

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

When Delaney Liskey was 11, a mysterious temporary loss of eyesight triggered her vision for patient-driven research that integrates personal experience into scientific inquiry. She was diagnosed with pediatric onset multiple sclerosis (MS) — a rare form of the neurological disorder  in which the inflammatory system attacks the central nervous system, disrupting signals between the […]

A young father’s regenerative bridge to transplant

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic is pioneering and refining regenerative procedures that are a bridge to transplant. These procedures are providing new options for strengthening and rebuilding health while patients await the gift of life. Organ transplantation is one of the most serious and complex surgeries, but it also can dramatically restore a patient’s health and quality of […]

Regenerative technology uncovers new discoveries in liver disease

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic researchers have developed a method for generating bile duct cells from stem cells. This technology enables them to study important aspects of primary sclerosing cholangitis, a rare bile duct disease that often destroys the liver. Using these regenerative technologies, Robert Huebert, M.D., and Nidhi Jalan Sakrikar, Ph.D., also confirmed that primary sclerosing cholangitis […]
