A new understanding of the inner workings of CAR-T cell therapy

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic researchers have biomanufactured chimeric antigen receptor-T cell therapy  (CAR-T cell therapy) in a new way to track the cells’ cancer fighting journey and predict toxic side effects. This Mayo Clinic breakthrough, published in Cancer Immunology Research, also could unravel the mystery of how to unleash CAR-T cell therapy to destroy solid tumors. “This […]

Seeing cancer, but not through a microscope

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

By Marla Broadfoot, Ph.D. / Discovery’s Edge Toward the end of the 19th century, a French doctor named Ernest Besnier coined the term “biopsy,” combining the Greek bios (life) and opsis (a sight). In the decades since, clinicians have performed countless biopsies on suspected cancer patients, all to catch a glimpse of cells on the […]

Rise in kidney cancer spurs Mayo researcher’s urgency to improve patient outcomes

By Barbara J. Toman Barbara J. Toman (@barbaratoman)

As a trainee oncologist, Thai Ho, M.D., Ph.D., was struck by the number of people he saw at a veterans’ hospital with kidney cancer. “It’s one of the cancers that disproportionately affects military personnel, possibly due to environmental exposures,” he says. The results can be devastating. “On average, patients with kidney cancer lose 12 years […]

Mayo researchers’ endometrial cancer discovery could lead to window of opportunity for prevention

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

What if a doctor could alert a woman a year or more in advance that she is likely to develop endometrial cancer? Researchers at Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine have found evidence linking functional modification of certain genes to the emergence of the disease, providing a novel opportunity for intervention and prevention. The new […]
