Mayo Clinic patient grateful after genetic test leads to unexpected, early detection of colon cancer

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

Alejandro Mirazo, 56, never imagined his genetic test results would reveal a hereditary link to cancer, or that his findings would potentially save his life. He had participated in a preemptive DNA research sequencing study for Mayo Clinic’s Center for Individualized Medicine in fall 2021 solely to contribute to medical research. As a Mexican American, he also wanted to add diversity to Mayo Clinic’s genomic dataset.

What you should know about genetics, colorectal cancer

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

By Nicole Brudos Ferrara Colorectal cancer begins when healthy cells in the colon or rectum develop mutations, or changes, in their DNA. These damaged cells then become cancerous, grow and divide uncontrollably, and form a tumor. Genetic factors play a role in this process. Some gene mutations passed through generations of your family can increase […]

Mayo Clinic discovery in bone marrow cancer points to potential drug targets 

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

New research from Mayo Clinic’s Center for Individualized Medicine finds that patients with ASXL1-mutant chronic myelomonocytic leukemia — an uncommon type of cancer of the bone marrow — have distinctive epigenetic changes that can activate harmful genes and cause the cancer to grow faster. The ASXL1 genetic mutation also can transform the disease into the more aggressive acute myeloid leukemia. […]

Mayo researchers lay foundation for AI-based personalized cancer modeling

By Sara Tiner Sara Tiner (@saratiner)

Like the maps that drivers use to get from one place to another, the goal of a medical diagnosis is to get you from where you are to where you want to be. A diagnosis takes a patient from symptoms to treatment, such as from lump to cure in the case of breast cancer. Medical […]
