A new way of capturing the molecular alterations of cancer

By Susan Buckles susanbuckles

Mayo Clinic researchers have a new way of plotting how cancer has progressed deep within a patient’s genetic blueprint. It’s a new graphing method called the Genome U-plot that reveals genetic changes taking place on a molecular level. The Genome U-plot’s two-dimensional layout and high spacial resolution make it possible to show chromosomal deletions, breaks, […]

Obesity: an individualized approach doubles the success rate of weight loss therapy

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

Many people think if they just stick to a diet and exercise, they’ll lose weight; unfortunately, many are not successful. They wonder why they can’t lose weight even after trying many different diets, work out programs and medications. According to Andres Acosta, M.D., Ph.D., the answers, at least partially, may be in your genes. His […]

Mayo Clinic and Transplant Genomics Collaborating to Develop Individualized Treatments to Minimize Transplant Rejection

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

A new collaboration is aimed at providing diagnostic tests that can reveal early signs of organ rejection for patients who have undergone an organ transplant. These tests may help physicians adjust immunosuppression medications, which are used to maintain the function of the transplanted organ, prevent organ rejection and minimize side effects. Mayo Clinic Center for […]

Improving Clinical Outcomes by Looking at Individual Response to Drug Therapies

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

Pharmacogenomics — prescribing medications based on a person’s genomic information — is one area of precision medicine that can offer an immediate impact on improving a patient’s care.  People metabolize different drugs at different rates, some faster, some slower.  On occasion, a specific drug may have devastating consequences to a patient.  Pharmacogenomics, or PGx as we […]
