Mayo Clinic patient grateful after genetic test leads to unexpected, early detection of colon cancer

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

Alejandro Mirazo, 56, never imagined his genetic test results would reveal a hereditary link to cancer, or that his findings would potentially save his life. He had participated in a preemptive DNA research sequencing study for Mayo Clinic’s Center for Individualized Medicine in fall 2021 solely to contribute to medical research. As a Mexican American, he also wanted to add diversity to Mayo Clinic’s genomic dataset.

Study involving investigators from Mayo Clinic, Baylor College of Medicine applies drug-gene testing to improve patient care and reports outcomes

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher (@colettegallagher)

The results from the “Right Drug, Right Dose, Right Time: Using Genomic Data to Individualize Treatment” (RIGHT 10K) study strongly suggest that preemptive testing could benefit nearly every patient at some point, particularly when the testing extends beyond DNA variants already known to influence drug metabolism.

Nanopore sequencing method rapidly detects, identifies antibiotic-resistant microbes, Mayo Clinic research shows 

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

A growing number of people are dying from antibiotic-resistant infections. These infections are fueled by microbial species that are mutating to evade the drugs developed to destroy them. More than 1.2 million people worldwide died in 2019 from antibiotic-resistant infections.  In response, a team of researchers from Mayo Clinic’s Center for Individualized Medicine has developed […]

Mayo Clinic leads biorepository core for new nationwide research on long-term symptoms of COVID-19

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher (@colettegallagher)

Mayo Clinic research is dedicated to finding solutions for patients who were infected with COVID-19 and the many affected by the long-term symptoms of COVID-19 ― what the National Institutes of Health (NIH) refers to as “long COVID” or post-acute sequelae. In response to great unmet patient need, the NIH launched a new research initiative […]

Mayo Clinic researchers find genetic pathways to individualized treatment for advanced prostate cancer

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Researchers at Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine have uncovered genetic clues to why tumors resist a specific therapy used for treating advanced prostate cancer. This discovery can guide health care providers to individualized treatments for castration-resistant prostate cancer, a deadly disease that does not respond to standard hormone therapy. Several U.S. Food and Drug […]
