Mayo Clinic research discovers how stem cells repair damage from heart attacks

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Mayo Clinic researchers have uncovered stem cell-activated mechanisms of healing after a heart attack. Stem cells restored cardiac muscle back to its condition before the heart attack, in turn providing a blueprint of how stem cells may work. The study, published in NPJ Regenerative Medicine, finds that human cardiopoietic cells zero in […]

Common early sign of cardiovascular disease also may indicate cancer risk, study finds

ROCHESTER, Minn. — A Mayo Clinic-led study involving 488 cardiac patients whose cases were followed for up to 12 years finds that microvascular endothelial dysfunction, a common early sign of cardiovascular disease, is associated with a greater than twofold risk of cancer. The study, published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, finds that microvascular […]

This has caused thousands of potentially preventable emergency department visits […]

Stem cell therapy furthers research for infants with hypoplastic left heart syndrome

ROCHESTER, Minn. ― A phase I clinical trial is the first research monitored by the Food and Drug Administration that demonstrates the potential of regenerative therapy for hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) through collecting, processing and injecting an infant’s own stem cells directly into the heart at the time of surgery. A paper detailing the […]

Estudio descubrió resultados cardiovasculares similares entre fármacos genéricos y comerciales para hipotiroidismo

JACKSONVILLE, Florida: Un nuevo estudio dirigido por los investigadores de Mayo Clinic puede tener amplias consecuencias en el tratamiento de los pacientes con enfermedades predominantemente benignas de la tiroides e hipotiroidismo de nueva aparición.
