Targeting therapy to each patient’s unique cancer

By Sharon Rosen Sharon Rosen (@sharonhrosen)

Article by Sara Damore As DNA sequencing technology helps bring genetic factors driving disease into focus, researchers have developed new cancer therapies to target a patient’s unique cancer, especially for those who do not respond to standard therapy. Funda Meric-Bernstam, M.D., a physician-scientist at MD Anderson Cancer Center will speak on Decision Support  for Precision […]

Harnessing the power of big data to uncover genetic risk for disease

By Sharon Rosen Sharon Rosen (@sharonhrosen)

There is no single gene that causes diabetes, bipolar disorder or Alzheimer’s disease, but there are genes linked to conditions that may occur before a patient eventually develops these disorders. What if researchers could identify individuals whose genetic makeup puts them at risk for developing disease so that physicians could intervene sooner and provide more […]

New Insights Into Sarcoma Genomic Basis Revealed in Mayo Clinic Research

By Mystery User

  Whole Genome Analyses of a Well-Differentiated Liposarcoma Reveals Novel SYT1 and DDR2 Rearrangements Source: PLOS ONE Liposarcoma is the most common soft tissue sarcoma, but little is known about the genomic basis of this disease. Given the low cell content of this tumor type, we utilized flow cytometry to isolate the diploid normal and […]

Building A Biorepositories Program

By AJ Montpetit AJ Montpetit (@ajmontpetit)

At Mayo Clinic, the Center for Individualized Medicine oversees the Biorepositories Program, which is a collection of biospecimens, such as tissue, blood, plasma, serum, urine, DNA, RNA and live cells, from patients and research volunteers. These biospecimens are used throughout the clinic for researches to utilize for a broad range of tests and research.

Understanding Prostate Cancer, One Man At A Time

By AJ Montpetit AJ Montpetit (@ajmontpetit)

The Prostate Cancer Medically Optimized Genome-Enhanced Therapy (PROMOTE) study uses genetic clues in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CPRC) that may identify an individualized treatment approach for men with the disease. Those with advanced prostate cancer can have tumors resistant to standard hormone treatments that lower testosterone. Our goal is to improve treatments by using genetic sequencing to uncover […]
