Real-world evidence in regenerative medicine: an interview with Shane Shapiro

Written by The Evidence Base

Hear from Shane Shapiro (Mayo Clinic, MN, USA) about how the Mayo Clinic Center for Regenerative Medicine is collecting real-world data to help inform patients.

Regenerative medicine therapies have progressed rapidly in the last few years and are fast becoming available in a clinical setting. However, key questions remain: in small patient populations, how can real-world evidence be used to support data from clinic trials?

In a recent paper, published in Regenerative Medicine, Shane A Shapiro, Cambray G Smith, Jennifer R Arthurs and Zubin Master (Mayo Clinic; MN, USA) discuss ‘responsible translation’ and the role of data in supporting patient access. At Phacilitate Leaders World (January 22-25, Miami, FL, USA), co-located with the World Stem Cell Summit, we spoke to author Shane Shapiro to find out more.
