Mayo study explores benefits of genetic testing for healthy people

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher

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 […]

Mayo study shows gene sequencing, translational research improves diagnosis rates

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher

Many patients with unsolved medical mysteries often undergo genetic testing, but the tests do not always provide a conclusive diagnosis. The term “diagnostic odyssey” describes the series of clinical consultations and testing that patients with undiagnosed disorders often receive in search of a genetic diagnosis. To help these patients, Mayo Clinic researchers embarked on a […]

Could population genetic screening improve public health?

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher

Hereditary BRCA-related breast and ovarian cancer, Lynch syndrome and familial hypercholesterolemia are estimated to be relatively prevalent in the general population but poorly found using traditional risk screening. In a typical medical practice, genetic testing for these conditions is based on personal or family history, ethnic background or other demographic characteristics, that may not always […]
