By Center for Individualized Medicine Center for Individualized Medicine (@samuelsmith5209)

Which antiplatelet medication is best after a coronary stent? The answer may lie in your genes, but heart experts differ with the Food  and Drug Administration on when to do genotype testing on angioplasty patients and whether genetic testing will keep heart patients out of the emergency rooms. Around 600,000 angioplasties are performed every year in the United […]

Genomics: Making Science Fiction a Reality

By Mystery User

Article originally posted on Discovery’s Edge. Genetic research first intrigued pharmacologist Richard Weinshilboum, M.D., of Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., more than 30 years ago, when he began painstaking biochemistry techniques in his Pharmacogenomics Laboratory. As Dr. Weinshilboum’s research team studied enzymes involved in eliminating neurotransmitters, they discovered a related enzyme, known as TPMT, that eliminated a […]

Discovering Smoker’s Lung Cancer Biomarker

By AJ Montpetit AJ Montpetit (@ajmontpetit)

Researchers at Mayo Clinic recently found that a specific pair of proteins may be a successful prognostic biomarker for identifying smoking-related lung cancers. The clinical significance of neuroendocrine (NE) differentiation in lung adenocarcinoma (AD), and the most appropriate biomarkers for this assessment, has long been debated. In the absence of a gold standard, investigators have most […]
