Another Promising Application for Stem Cells: Crohn’s Complications

New research at Mayo Clinic is bringing hope to hundreds of thousands of patients with Crohn’s disease. Their extreme pain from complications is both physical and emotional and, for many, incurable.

Allan B. Dietz, Ph.D., Human Cellular Therapy Laboratory director, Eric J. Dozois, M.D., Colon & Rectal Surgery, and William A. Faubion, M.D., with Gastroenterology at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, discuss an innovation using the patient's own stem cells that seems to work well in early testing.
