Gluten Influence on the Microbiome

By

Recent research has illustrated that the intestinal microbiome plays a major role in the development of Type 1 diabetes. Researchers at Mayo Clinic, funded by the Iacocca Foundation and a National Institutes of Health RO1 grant, demonstrated that gluten in the diet may in fact modify the intestinal microbiome, increasing incidences of Type 1 diabetes. The findings were published Nov. 13, in PLOS […]

Mayo Clinic Biobank Hits 35,000 Participants

By AJ Montpetit ajmontpetit

  35,000 and Growing This week, the Biobank recruited its thirty-fifth-thousandth participant, and we’re still growing. With every patient who graciously agrees to have their blood drawn and answer a questionnaire, we are one step closer to offering more individualized medicine for all of our patients. This is particularly so in Florida and Arizona, where […]

The Promise of Whole-Exome Sequencing

By AJ Montpetit ajmontpetit

Until recently, polygenic (complex) diseases were beyond the capacity of first-generation sequencing, but next-generation sequencing (NGS) in making exploration of genetic etiology of complex diseases a possibility for the first time. NGS is a rapidly growing area of genomics and gene sequencing, and the rapid changes hold more promise for exome decoding than ever before. […]

The BEAUTY Project

By Center for Individualized Medicine samuelsmith5209

  The Breast Cancer Genome-Guided Therapy (BEAUTY) study is designed to help researchers better understand why standard chemotherapy eradicates breast cancer in some women but fails in others. The long-term goal is to enable individualized treatment for each woman with breast cancer by using the genetic information found in blood samples and tumor biopsies to […]
