Mayo scientists develop mathematical index to distinguish healthy microbiome from diseased

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy

What causes some people to develop chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, cancer and metabolic syndrome while others stay healthy? A major clue could be found in their gut microbiome — the trillions of microbes living inside the digestive system that regulate various bodily functions. To utilize the huge population of tiny organisms as a […]

Mayo Clinic researchers look at post menopause as key factor in endometrial cancer

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher

Mayo Clinic researchers have identified a microbiome signature associated with endometrial cancer, which is in part promoted by post menopause. In a study, supported by Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine and published in Scientific Reports, researchers sought to understand how endometrial cancer risk factors alter the reproductive tract microbiome and endometrial cancer risk. “If […]

The magic of the microbiome: new Mayo researcher looks for ways to promote health, prevent disease

By Sharon Rosen Sharon Rosen

“Don’t miss seeing the forest by focusing only on the trees,” explains Jaeyun Sung, Ph.D., a systems biologist who recently joined the Microbiome Program within Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine. That is Dr. Sung’s approach to exploring how the microbiome – the tens of trillions of microbes within and on our bodies – affects […]

Mayo Researchers Identify Unique Breast Microbiome and Bacterial Differences Between Healthy and Cancerous Tissue

By Sharon Rosen Sharon Rosen

Researchers in the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine have been studying the community of bacteria, known as the microbiome, that live in many areas of our body for clues about how these bacteria help us stay healthy or cause disease. In fact, investigators have already discovered that when the microbiome is in balance, these […]

Mayo Clinic Joins the National Microbiome Initiative

By Jeff Briggs Jeff Briggs

The microbiome — which includes a community of trillions of bacteria living within our gut — has been called one of the next big frontiers in medicine. In recent years, research has shown that the bacteria in our gut plays a critical role in our overall health. The balance of good and bad bacteria can […]

The Diet And Genome Microbiome Dance

By AJ Montpetit AJ Montpetit

  A Mayo Clinic researcher, and collaborators, have shown that an individual’s diet and genomic makeup interact to determine which microbes exist and how they act in the host intestine. The study was modeled in germ-free knockout mice to mimic a genetic condition that affects 1 in 5 humans and increases the risk for digestive diseases. You […]
