Mayo Clinic and ASU Assist in Sparking Medical Device Modeling Startup

By Center for Individualized Medicine

Article Originally Featured on ASU News.

A business startup formed to commercialize technology developed by an Arizona State University engineer and his students has won an Arizona Innovation Challenge award from the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA), the state’s leading economic development agency.

Recipients of the award “represent innovative Arizona entrepreneurs who are creating technological solutions with the potential for global impact,” the ACA said.

The award brings the company, EndoVantage, a grant of $250,000 to support development of its business operations. The venture is based on a novel software platform that simulates the effects of deploying small medical devices (stents, for example) into blood [...]

Personalized Medicine: The Changing Landscape of Health Care

By Center for Individualized Medicine

Speaking at the Individualizing Medicine Conference 2013, Edward Abrahams, Ph.D. presents on the changing landscape that genomics is creating throughout health care. Not only within the health care industry itself, the field of Individualized Medicine and the power that genomics brings, is also changing the way people in Washington D.C. think about the way it should interact and prepare for the future of health care.

Edward Abrahams, Ph.D. is president of the Personalized Medicine Coalition. Representing innovators, scientists, patients, providers and payers, the Personalized Medicine Coalition promotes the understanding and adoption of personalized medicine concepts, services and products for the benefit of patients and the health system. It has grown from its original [...]

Genome-Wide Associations of Citalopram and Escitalopram Plasma Drug and Metabolite Concentrations

By Center for Individualized Medicine

 

Pharmacogenomic Publication

 

Published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, a team of researchers from the Mayo Clinic, led by the director of the Center for Individualized Medicine's Pharmacogenomics Program, Richard Weinshilboum, M.D., applied a genome-wide association study (GWAS) to identify genetic factors that contribute to variation in plasma concentrations of Citalopram (CT) or escitalopram (S-CT), and their metabolites in Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) patients treated with CT or S-CT.

The GWAS was performed using samples from 435 MDD patients. Linear mixed models were used to account for within-subject correlations of longitudinal measures of plasma drug/metabolite concentrations (4 and [...]

Missouri is 19th State Signing Breast Density Bill into Law

By AJ Montpetit

As of today, women in 31 states leave their yearly mammogram appointment without the knowledge of their own breast density number. This single data point is important in tailoring personalized care for each woman, and assisting in possible further preventative care.

Are You Dense, Inc. released a press release announcing the passing of the 19th state bill, which made into law in the state of Missouri, to include breast density information in a patient's mammography reporting results.
"Too many women are unaware of the effects of breast density, but this knowledge can save lives by leading to earlier breast cancer detection," notes Representative Sue Allen of Missouri.

Mayo Clinic Researchers Reveal New Genes Key to Kidney Cancer

By Center for Individualized Medicine

Genomic Revelation
A genomic analysis of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC), the most common form of kidney cancer, from 72 patients has uncovered 31 genes that are key to development, growth and spread of the cancer, say researchers from Mayo Clinic in Florida. Eight of these genes had not been previously linked to kidney cancer, and six other genes were never known to be involved in any form of cancer.

 

 

Their study, in the journal Oncotarget, is the most extensive analysis to date of gene expression’s role in ccRCC tumor growth and metastasis. The ccRCC subtype accounts for 80 percent of [...]
