Mayo Clinic Researchers Reveal New Genes Key to Kidney Cancer

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

A genomic analysis of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC), the most common form of kidney cancer, from 72 patients has uncovered 31 genes that are key to development, growth and spread of the cancer, say researchers from Mayo Clinic in Florida. Eight of these genes had not been previously linked to kidney cancer, and […]

Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma New Routine Testing

By AJ Montpetit AJ Montpetit (@ajmontpetit)

Article Originally Featured on the Mayo Clinic News Network. A Mayo Clinic-led group of researchers has discovered three subgroups of a single type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that have markedly different survival rates. These subgroups could not be differentiated by routine pathology but only with the aid of novel genetic tests, which the research team recommends […]

Difficult Decisions with Genetic Testing

By AJ Montpetit AJ Montpetit (@ajmontpetit)

  When dealing with the findings that having your genome sequenced brings, patients have predominantly been given the choice of either all the information or none at all. In March 2013, the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) released recommendations on how to handle incidental findings (IFs) for the clinical application of whole […]
