Mayo researchers develop algorithm to predict rheumatoid arthritis disease activity

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

Researchers within Mayo Clinic’s Center for Individualized Medicine and Division of Rheumatology have developed a first-of-its-kind machine learning algorithm that can predict rheumatoid arthritis disease activity in a patient. The algorithm analyzes biochemical metabolites ― the product of the body’s metabolism ― in blood. “Having fast, reliable and scalable measures for predicting the clinical course […]

Mayo researchers articulate implications of Omic-Medicine Era – What needs to happen with each stakeholder?

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher (@colettegallagher)

In the near future, genome sequencing, among other biological measures, will be as routine as X-rays and cholesterol testing. The challenge, though, will be accurately interpreting the vast amount of data and effectively using it to guide decisions about health care. In a position statement published in Hepatology, Mayo Clinic researchers layout perspectives of various […]

Mayo Clinic researchers explore personalized approach to anti-obesity medications

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher (@colettegallagher)

Individualized medicine initiatives mainly focus on rare diseases or cancer. Little has been attempted to individualize treatment for noncommunicable chronic diseases such as obesity — a chronic, relapsing disease, and a primary cause of Type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, cardiovascular disease and cancer. There are many obesity interventions, such as diets, devices, surgery and […]

Test offers hope for people with severe kidney disease

By Barbara J. Toman Barbara J. Toman (@barbaratoman)

Optimal treatment requires knowing what caused a medical condition. If your arm is broken because you fell, a simple cast might be enough. But if a tumor in your bone made it brittle, you need very different treatment. For people with a rare kidney condition—known as focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS)—identifying the cause is critical. Patients […]

15 ways genomics is impacting our lives: Genomic literacy and pharmacogenomics

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

To apply important genomic research at the point of care, medical providers and patients must first understand it. That fact spotlights the need for “Genomics 101” type of education to help the medical community keep up with newest discoveries. Genomic literacy – explaining scientific findings in understandable terms – is one goal of the ‘15 […]

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 […]
