Developing new tests to find and defeat cancer at its earliest stages

Mammography and other screening tools have made great strides in finding cancer early, when it is most likely to be successfully treated. However, some early-stage cancers are missed by conventional screening and are only detected when symptoms occur. Mayo Clinic and other research institutions are wondering: could a blood test complement current practice to improve rates of early detection and cure?

 

Research suggests that novel blood tests may be able to find cancer early, by identifying small pieces of genetic material shed by tumors.  Mayo Clinic is collaborating with GRAIL, a life science company, and Sutter Health of California, on the STRIVE clinical research study to facilitate the development of GRAIL’s blood tests for [...]

Exploring the link between the gut and multiple sclerosis

Article by Sharon Rosen

Could the bacteria in a person’s digestive system provide a clue about whether he or she may develop multiple sclerosis? This is a question that Mayo Clinic researchers asked when trying to unravel the causes of multiple sclerosis, a potentially debilitating condition that impacts a person’s nervous system. A Mayo Clinic study published in Scientific Reports demonstrates that patients with multiple sclerosis have a unique gut microbiome - the community of bacteria in the digestive system - when compared to that of healthy patients.

Dr. Nicholas Chia

“Patients with multiple sclerosis have more gastrointestinal problems such [...]

Next generation sequencing – a game changer

Article by Sharon Rosen

Imagine scanning a page for errors manually one letter at a time, versus using a faster tool like spell check. That’s the difference between the first DNA sequencing methods and the new computerized machines known as next generation sequencing. It’s revolutionizing health care.

Next generation sequencing technology enables geneticists to examine all of your 22,000 genes at once. So finding a change in a gene, called a genetic variation, which causes a patient’s disease, can be done much faster and cheaper. In contrast, older sequencing methods only focus on one or a few genes at a time.

Dr. Matthew Ferber

“This new technology is constantly [...]

This diet’s for you: personalized nutrition to improve your health

Article by Sharon Rosen

Dr. Heidi Nelson

Dr. Heidi Nelson

You may use the phrase “gut reaction” to describe what your instincts tell you about a particular situation. But it turns out that your gut offers much more than an emotional reaction – it processes food you eat in a way that is unique to you. For example, some people may feel energized and lose weight from eating a high protein and low carbohydrate diet, while others might not get the same benefit from eating the same foods. This occurs because each of us has a unique community of bacteria inside our digestive system, known as the gut microbiome. As a result, [...]

Using genetic testing to transform care for neurological disorders

Article by Sharon Rosen

 

Our nervous system is made up of complex biological pathways that control everything we do, including breathing, thinking, speaking, moving and feeling. For patients suffering from a neurological disorder such as Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, nerve pain (neuropathy) and dementia, the symptoms of these conditions can impact many aspects of daily life. Some patients with unexplained neurological symptoms search for years for a diagnosis and treatment.

Scientists and physicians have suspected that many neurological conditions had underlying genetic causes. The question has been how to verify that. Advances in DNA testing technology provide new, more accurate ways to pinpoint genetic variations that lead to neurological disease. Armed with [...]

While many individuals frequently first search for physical indications of a turmoil, it is essential to comprehend that there can likewise be passionate side effects of neurological issues. For example, you may encounter disposition swings or sudden upheavals. People who experience the ill effects of neurological issues may likewise encounter discouragement or hallucinations.
