How does a genomic tumor board impact patient care?

By Colette Gallagher colettegallagher

The outcomes from a Mayo Clinic study published in Oncotarget found value in having an established genomic tumor board, and using genomics for certain patients. The experience of the Genomic Tumor Board has promoted an evolution in the practice according to Alan Bryce, M.D., a Mayo Clinic oncologist, and co-first author on the study. “There […]

Q and A: How has genomics led to precision cancer care?

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

How has cancer care changed with advances in genomic medicine? For example, for patients diagnosed with melanoma today, will their treatment options be different than those that were available 10 or 15 years ago? These are some of the questions we posed to  Aleksandar Sekulic, M.D., Ph.D., associate director, Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine, […]

Exploring ethical issues to improve reproductive health

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

New genomic technologies offer great promise for better diagnostic tests and treatments for many conditions. But they also pose new ethical questions – ones physicians and patients must address when making decisions about medical care. For example, genetic tests can determine if a couple is at risk of having a child with a genetic condition. […]

TOGETHER trial – a personalized approach to detect, treat organ rejection

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

For physicians caring for patients after kidney transplantation, it’s a balancing act. They need to select the right immunosuppressant drug and dosage to enable the patient’s immune system to accept the new kidney, but allow it to fight other unwanted infections. Physicians also want to reduce potential side effects from these immunosuppression medications, which can […]

New medical geneticist in Arizona expands care for patients with rare genetic diseases

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

For patients with rare conditions, it can be difficult to find answers and treatment for unexplained, often severe symptoms. Many rare genetic disorders affect multiple organs, requiring patients to seek care from many different medical specialists. It can be challenging for patients and their families to understand their condition, find relief from their symptoms and […]

Using genomics to target cancer therapy

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

One size does not fit all – especially when it comes to cancer treatment. We are each unique – with our own biological and genetic characteristics. Advances in genomic technology have led to the discovery that each type of cancer is also unique, with its own molecular characteristics. Researchers in the Mayo Clinic Center for […]
