Mayo Clinic investigators share precision medicine research and practice at 10th ISABS Conference

By Sharon Rosen

Dr. Tamas Ordog

Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine physicians and scientists will join Nobel Prize winners and other worldwide leaders in precision medicine in presenting the latest research and application to patient care. Twelve people from the Rochester, Florida and Arizona campuses are featured speakers at the Individualized Medicine Lectures at the 10th International Society for Applied Biological Sciences (ISABS) Conference. Considered one of the most important events of the year in precision medicine, the conference will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, June 19 - 24, 2017.

 

“This year’s conference brings together five Nobel Laureates along with leading scientific experts in the fields of medical genetics, forensics and anthropology to share research best practices and findings. For the first time, this year’s conference will feature joint sessions with experts from all three fields sharing their expertise on a variety of topics, including next generation sequencing technology, epigenomics and microbiome research,” says Tamas Ordog, M.D., director, Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine Epigenomics Program, and co-program director for the conference.

 

Dr. Staminir Vuk Pavlovic

Mayo Clinic investigators have contributed their expertise in medical genetics and genomics since the ISABS Conference was established in 1997. Stanimir Vuk-Pavlovic, Ph.D., emeritus professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Mayo Clinic; Dragan Primorac, M.D., Ph.D., professor at the Universities of Split, Rijeka, and Osijek, Croatia, and Moses Schanfield, Ph.D., professor of Forensic Sciences at George Washington University, created the ISABS to promote and extend research, development and education in molecular biology as applied to clinical and molecular medicine, forensic science, and anthropology.

 

 

 

Mayo Clinic presentations

 

Dr. Gianrico Farrugia

Setting the stage for the Individualized Medicine program at the conference, Gianrico Farrugia, M.D., will present “Individualized Medicine: From Promise to Practice” at the inaugural plenary session. Dr. Farrugia is vice president at Mayo and CEO at Mayo Clinic in Florida; former director, Center for Individualized Medicine, and professor of Medicine and Physiology.

 

 

 

Dr. Keith Stewart

Highlighting how genomic discoveries have transformed patient care, Keith Stewart, M.B., CH.B., will present “Deploying Clinical Individualized Medicine: Opportunities and Challenges.” Dr. Stewart is the Carlson and Nelson Endowed Medical Director, Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine, the Vasek and Anna Maria Polak Professor of Cancer Research and a consultant in the Division of Hematology/Oncology at Mayo Clinic’s campus in Arizona.

 

 

 

 

Dr. Jan Van Deursen

At a special plenary session, Jan van Deursen, Ph.D., professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Pediatrics, will present “Fundamental Mechanisms of Aging and Aging-Related Diseases.”

 

 

 

 

Other Mayo Clinic clinicians and researchers will provide their expertise across a broad spectrum of precision medicine topics.

 

Mayo presenters for the Individualized Medicine Program include:

 

Nilufer Ertekin Taner, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of Neurology and Neurosciences
Genetics and Epigenomics of Alzheimer’s Disease and Progressive Supranuclear Palsy”

William Faubion, M.D., associate professor of Immunology, Medicine and Pediatrics
Epigenetics of Inflammatory Bowel Disease”

William H. Donner Professor of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology
“The Precision Medicine Initiative: Challenges in Biobanking”

George Vasmatzis, Ph.D., co-director, Center for Individualized Medicine Biomarker Discovery Program, assistant professor of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology
“Genomic Biomarkers”

 

Scientific collaboration brings insights for patient care

 

From this unique collaboration, Mayo Clinic investigators continue to learn valuable lessons that they can apply to improve patient care.

“Although technology is improving for medical genetics and genomics, we still face many challenges. For example, applying advanced genomic and epigenomic analytical methods to small clinical samples often containing several mutated clones or cell types can be difficult. We can learn how to address issues like this from our colleagues in forensic science and anthropology, who regularly conduct high-throughput sequencing on very small samples, which are often contaminated with genetic material from other individuals or species, and obtain high quality data,” explains Dr. Ordog.

With ALS,(amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) my first sign that something was wrong, was my slurred speech. And then the inability to eat without getting choked, strangled, and coughing. I didn’t have health care I just thought it was a stroke, When it started to get worse I went to a neurologist. I was given medications like riluzole oral to slow down the progress of the disease, nothing was really working to help my condition. Finally i started on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis herbal formula i purchased from Health Herbal Clinic, i read alot of positive reviews from other patients who used the ALS herbal treatment. I used the herbal remedy for 7 weeks, its effects on ALS is amazing, all my symptoms gradually faded away, i feed very more freely by myself now! (Visit www. healthherbalclinic. weebly. com or email at healthherbalclinic@ gmail. com) I recommend this ALS herbal formula for all ALS Patients.

I lived with the herpes simplex ii virus for almost 40 years. I got it when I was seventeen from another teenager who didn’t know that he had it. At that age I thought that it was the end of the world for me! Back in 1978 there wasn’t that much known about herpes; my relief came not from medications (there was no treatment back then, albeit I had heard about ‘heat lamps’ for males), but from a support group out of Palo Alto, California, who mailed me information, very discreetly, after I was finally medically diagnosed. From their mailings I learned hopeful things, like my body would eventually build up immunity to the nerve virus, causing less breakouts over time, and that I wasn’t ruined for life. From the school of hard knocks I learned to tell my partners up front about my disease, and I have lived a relatively normal life, since. I ended up giving it to my boyfriend, because I had some bad advice from my mother to not tell him. We ended up marrying and that’s when I found out that passing it back and forth without treatment nor protection was harmful to our health, but we were young and ignorant. I simply didn’t know that I should be telling people that I have it, until I was older and divorced. The only other person I ended up giving it to is my current husband of 13.5 years, in a 15.5 total years of our relationship, but he was made aware of it earlier on, and although we tried to prevent it, he got it anyhow, a year before we were married. I’m writing all this so that readers may have hope that there is a (healthy) life after contracting herpes. The only thing that I’m confuse was that finally, after 39 years of carrying the virus and suffering through the early breakouts, I ended up having apparently enough stress (and the worst leg cramp I’ve ever had which may have led up to this outbreak) to end up having what can only be described as a first and worst breakout in a totally different spot (on the outside of my right-side labia instead of deep inside my vaginal wall on my right side (where it had originally implanted itself in the nerve). So I could finally actually see it after four decades of not seeing it, which was surprising, because it goes against the grain of what I’ve learned all my life about herpes. It got me fighting tooth and nail for a cure. And I finally find one from Dr osewe through this email given to me by a friend called Judith Cyrus and here it is:oseweagbonifo@gmail.com. OMG! I can’t believe I’m free at last. ADVICE; please take it easy with yourself for there is a permanent cure for this virus.
It will interest you to know that this Dr osewe cure the following also: HIV AIDS, ALS, MND, hepatitis, Epilepsy, Leukemia, Asthma, Cancer, Candida, Gonorrhea,Empty stomach[yin infection] even spell to secure what ever you desire like [lover, job,and fortune i.e wealth without limit e.t.c] cleansing spell, spiritual fortification. spell to gain power and become number one priority over others

Greetings to everyone reading this article. i don’t just know why doctors keep saying there is no cure for Herpes simplex 1 and 2 when Dr MABUWA has used his herbal formula to cure so much people in the USA and other many countries. 2010 i was found positive of this virus and i have looked everywhere for a solution to get my Herpes simplex 1&2 gone. but after reaching out to several’s doctors in different countries. i finally stumbled on Dr MABUWA testimonies online as a Lady was talking about how he met Dr MABUWA and he prepared a herbal formula for her and after 2weeks of usage she was negative. i didn’t believe so i contacted Dr MABUWA myself to confirm. Lo and behold after chatting with him and telling him how i can get my own remedy. Dr MABUWA gave me instruction and i obeyed. and within 4days time i received his herbal formula and used it within 2weeks he told me to go for a check up. and when i did. my doc came out with a smile telling me how did i do it. i told him about Dr MABUWA. and today i have directed many individuals to Dr MABUWA. all has been cured. yours can also be. only contact his Email:drmabuwasolutioncuretemple@gmail.com or his what app line:+2348130714541

I have been suffering from amyotrophic laterals sclerosis (ALS) disease for the last three years and had constant pain, especially in my knees. my first sign that something was wrong, was my slurred speech. And then the inability to eat without getting choked, strangled, and coughing.Throughout my three years ordeal, i was able to walk with assistance nothing was really working to help my condition.I went off the riluzole (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis herbal formula i ordered from Health Herbal Clinic, Just 7 weeks into the Herbal formula treatment I had great improvements with my slurred speech, there is no case of constant pain and chest tightness since treatment, visit Health Herbal Clinic official website www. healthherbalclinic. net or email info@ healthherbalclinic. net. This treatment is incredible!
