Boston Globe
In the future, treatments tailored to patients
by Robert Weisman

Holly Boehle came to the Mayo Clinic in 2013 with an aggressive breast cancer, preparedBoston Globe Logo for almost anything. Still, she was surprised when doctors wanted to remove cells from her tumor and transplant them into “avatar mice.” Researchers then injected different cancer drugs into the mice to test which shrank the tumors, helping doctors select the best treatment for Boehle. Ultimately, Boehle, a 44-year-old school administrator in Zeeland, Mich., underwent surgery and received a combination of drug infusions based partly on the responses of the mice. Her cancer has been in remission for the past year.

Falls Are Leading Cause of Childhood Injuries, Expert Says
by Mary Dallas

Falls are the leading cause of childhood injuries, and most of them occur in the home, a pediatricHealth Day Logo trauma expert said. Many people associate falls with playgrounds, but kids can tumble off changing tables. They can also fall out of infant seats, shopping carts and windows, resulting in serious injuries, according to Dr. Christopher Moir, a pediatric surgeon at the Mayo Clinic Children Center in Rochester, Minn. Falling from windows often results in more serious injuries, according to Moir.

Context:  When people think of kids and trauma, they often think about car accidents. “However, in reality, falls are the leading cause of childhood injury and most of them happen around the home,” says Christopher Moir, M.D., pediatric surgeon at Mayo Clinic Children's Center, who has cared for a wide variety of injuries related to falls. There are approximately 8,000 children treated in emergency rooms for falls every day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. At Mayo Clinic’s Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center, 35 percent of the children cared for in 2014 were the result of a fall.

In March, Andre PearsonKESQ-2 Palm Springs went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota where he was treated for severe heart failure. His heart wasn't pumping blood… After being reevaluated, his medical team at the Mayo Clinic decided he was well enough to make the trip to Desert Ridge Estate in Indio, where his daughter was getting married.

Each one of these micro pharma companies will consist mostly of a single drug development research project.

Star Tribune, The case for uniform telemedicine by Lindsay R. Friedman, an attorney in Chicago. Paul A. Friedman is a cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester and is president of the Remote Healthcare Society. The opinions expressed are solely those of the authors. In October 2014, Larry Lee of Albert Lea, Minn., left his house to take his dog for a walk. He would not walk back. While strolling, Lee was abruptly disabled by a stroke. His dog, Dee, raced home and got the attention of Larry’s wife, Pat, who called 911. Larry was taken to the hospital near his home. Too small to have its own full-time neurologist, the Albert Lea hospital used telemedicine to permit a two-way video connection to a stroke specialist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. Through the use of a telestroke program, brain-saving medications could be started even before Larry was put on the helicopter to Rochester.

Star Tribune  Readers Write: TELEMEDICINE Minnesota’s leaders took steps this year to improve care — The June 8 commentary by Lindsay R. Friedman and Dr. Paul A.

The Mayo Clinic applauds Minnesota’s leaders for supporting this effort to both improve quality and access to medical care through telemedicine…-- Dr. Steve Ommen, Rochester, The writer is medical director for the Mayo Clinic Center for Connected Care.

Wall Street Journal, New Ways Doctors Reach Agreement on Patient Diagnoses by Laura Landro… Pathology labs do conduct internal reviews when cases “fall into the gray zone and are not clearly benign or malignant,” and pathologists often call on colleagues who may have more expertise in a certain type of cancer, says Raouf Nakhleh, a pathologist at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla., and co-author of the guidelines.

To test his theory, he had to send a serum sample to researchers at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, who confirmed that his patient had chikungunya.

Sante Fe Public Radio KSFR, Assisted Reproductive Technology Helps Families, Complicates Hospital Policies — Assisted Reproduction has greatly increased the chance for couples previously thought incapable of having children to create successful pregnancies.

FierceHealth IT, Mayo Clinic CISO: Healthcare data most difficult to keep secure by Susan Hall — Healthcare information is harder to protect than financial information, according to Mayo Clinic Chief Information Security Officer Jim Nelms, who previously spent 14 securing financial information years at The World Bank. Nelms, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, says healthcare is 10 to 15 years behind other industries in its IT practices. He attributes much of the difficulty to the plethora of medical devices being used in hospital--they make up 40 percent of the technology there--and to doctors sharing information. There's less data-sharing in financial services, he adds.

Star Tribune, New St. Jude device treats chronic pain using an iPod by Joe Carlson — That woman riding the Paris subway might be turning up the volume of “Comfortably Numb” on her iPod.

St. Jude Medical Inc. in Little Canada announced Thursday that it has gotten approval to sell a new neuromodulation device in Europe called the Invisible Trial System that is controlled with an app on an iPod Touch. … IPods and iPads are increasingly being used in health care to read data from gadgets like glucose monitors, blood-pressure cuffs and asthma inhalers.

NBC Sports, Agent says Bud Sasser has been cleared to play by Mike Florio — The Rams did something they arguably didn’t have to do with sixth-round receiver Bud Sasser. Instead of rescinding their rights to him after learning that he has a heart condition that they believe will prevent him from playing…“He has a very small case of the diagnosis given in St. Louis, he is at little to no risk,he should be able to play,” agent Scott Thield told the Columbia (Mo.)Tribune, via veteran NFL reporter Howard Balzer. “The doctor told Bud he in fact knows there are others in the league playing with this same issue.” Thield claims that Sasser received a second opinion from doctors at the Mayo Clinic, who cleared Sasser to play.

HealthDay, Potential Liver Recipients May Have New Option — Livers from donors who suffered cardiac death can be safely and effectively transplanted into patients dying of liver cancer, a new study suggests… Because of damaging oxygen loss, someone who dies from a heart attack is not considered a viable donor of organs for transplantation, the researchers said. Instead, cardiac death is controlled in a patient who will donate organs, they explained. "This can occur, for example, in a patient who has had a bad brain injury and will not recover," said lead investigator and transplant surgeon Dr. Kristopher Croome, from the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla.

NBC News, How Deadly is a Brain Tumor? Now the DNA Can Tell by Maggie Fox…Two studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine show that it's way too general to just call a brain tumor by the type of tissue involved.
