Researchers review how sex steroids change gut, vaginal microbiome

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher (@colettegallagher)

It is well-established that the human body’s microbiome ― the bacteria in the gut ― dramatically affects health and disease. However, the role of the gut in women’s health outcomes is largely unknown. Mayo Clinic and Wellesley College researchers focused on how the interactions of steroids on gut and vaginal microbiomes influence women’s health outcomes […]

Mayo researchers study genetic basis of high cholesterol in adults

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher (@colettegallagher)

In a new study published in NPJ Genomic Medicine, Mayo Clinic researchers found that genetic testing may help identify patients with high cholesterol, or hypercholesterolemia. It also may have implications for the clinical management of patients diagnosed with high cholesterol due to a genetic disorder, or familial hypercholesterolemia. “In our study, we found more than […]

Groundbreaking Early Cancer Detection Test Studied at Mayo Clinic Introduced Nationally

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher (@colettegallagher)

Mayo Clinic today recognized the debut of a groundbreaking multi-cancer early cancer detection (MCED) test called Galleri™ that can detect more than 50 types of cancers[1] through a simple blood draw. The Galleri test is intended  to complement U.S. guideline-recommended cancer screenings. Mayo Clinic Oncologist Minetta Liu, M.D. was involved in the development of the […]

Mayo researchers articulate implications of Omic-Medicine Era – What needs to happen with each stakeholder?

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher (@colettegallagher)

In the near future, genome sequencing, among other biological measures, will be as routine as X-rays and cholesterol testing. The challenge, though, will be accurately interpreting the vast amount of data and effectively using it to guide decisions about health care. In a position statement published in Hepatology, Mayo Clinic researchers layout perspectives of various […]

Mayo Clinic researchers explore personalized approach to anti-obesity medications

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher (@colettegallagher)

Individualized medicine initiatives mainly focus on rare diseases or cancer. Little has been attempted to individualize treatment for noncommunicable chronic diseases such as obesity — a chronic, relapsing disease, and a primary cause of Type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, cardiovascular disease and cancer. There are many obesity interventions, such as diets, devices, surgery and […]

First hybrid gene therapy shows early promise in treating long QT syndrome

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher (@colettegallagher)

In a new study published in Circulation, Mayo Clinic researchers provide the first preclinical, proof-of-concept study for hybrid gene therapy in long QT syndrome, a potentially lethal heart rhythm condition. Researchers demonstrated its potential therapeutic efficacy in two in vitro model systems using beating heart cells reengineered from the blood samples of patients with type […]

Mayo study explores benefits of genetic testing for healthy people

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher (@colettegallagher)

More than 1 in 10 people who had predictive genomic testing ― testing that looks for genetic mutations in otherwise healthy people ― learned that they had a hereditary risk for a health condition and may benefit from preventive care, according to a recent study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings. This study is the first […]
