Mayo Clinic researchers find genetic pathways to individualized treatment for advanced prostate cancer

By Susan Buckles susanbuckles

Researchers at Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine have uncovered genetic clues to why tumors resist a specific therapy used for treating advanced prostate cancer. This discovery can guide health care providers to individualized treatments for castration-resistant prostate cancer, a deadly disease that does not respond to standard hormone therapy. Several U.S. Food and Drug […]

A personalized approach to brain tumor surgery

By Susan Buckles susanbuckles

  New technology invented and used only at Mayo Clinic lets physicians plan an individualized approach to brain surgery. Brain magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) allows surgeons to see inside a patient’s skull and determine the firmness of a brain tumor before surgery. Slip interface imaging is another new invention that shows level of adhesion of […]
