Putting the precision in precision medicine care for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

Each year, more than 20,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, the most common type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. While the likelihood of developing the disease increases with age, men and women in all age groups and from many ethnic backgrounds can develop the disease, which can start in many areas of […]

Genomics: Making Science Fiction a Reality

By

Article originally posted on Discovery’s Edge. Genetic research first intrigued pharmacologist Richard Weinshilboum, M.D., of Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., more than 30 years ago, when he began painstaking biochemistry techniques in his Pharmacogenomics Laboratory. As Dr. Weinshilboum’s research team studied enzymes involved in eliminating neurotransmitters, they discovered a related enzyme, known as TPMT, that eliminated a […]

The Human Microbiome Studies At Mayo Clinic

By Center for Individualized Medicine samuelsmith5209

In the fight against disease, we’re vastly outnumbered. The number of bacterial cells and their genetic material far outnumber human cells and genes. Take the digestive tract as an example. In the lower digestive tract (commonly called the gut), there are about 10 times as many bacterial cells as there are human cells. The genetic […]
