She found she was able to reverse memory loss in mice by lowering an enzyme called caspase-2. She'll be partnering with researchers at the Mayo Clinic to work on advancing this discovery.

Washington Post, There’s a breast microbiome, and it’s different in women with breast cancer by Erin Blakemore — Among the most popular topics in biology in recent years is the human microbiome, the trillions of bacteria and other tiny organisms inside and outside our bodies that outnumber our own cells by as much as three-to-one. Much of the news on this topic has been about the colony of bacteria deep in your gut; scientists believe that the mix may contribute to all sorts of medical conditions ranging from Crohn's disease, an inflammatory bowel disorder, to anxiety … “There were really striking differences between skin tissue and breast tissue,” said Tina J. Hieken, a Mayo Clinic breast surgical oncologist who led the study. Not only did breast skin have a different mix of bacteria, but the bacteria that lived there were more abundant.

Conde Nast Traveler, This Is How Much Water You Should Drink On a Plane by Cassie Shortsleeve — Depending on where you’re going, how long you’re traveling, and what kind of a plane you’re on. Desert-like airplane cabins, a no-liquids TSA rule, and in-flight libations make dehydration a common condition for travelers. But in-the-skies hydration isn’t a math equation: There’s no specific catch-all for how much water you need to drink while flying, says Clayton T. Cowl, M.D., Chair of the Division of Preventive, Occupational, and Aerospace Medicine at the Mayo Clinic. (That's right, there's a chair of aerospace medicine at the Mayo Clinic.)

LifeHacker, Why You Shouldn't Rely On Dr. Google When You're Sick by Patrick Allen — When you’re not feeling well, your first move might be checking your symptoms with a search engine. A recent study, however, suggests real doctors are still way more accurate than any symptom checker tools out there. The study, published in the Journal of American Medical Association Internal Medicine, tested 234 physicians and 23 online symptom checkers—including the popular WebMD and Mayo Clinic—on 45 hypothetical patients with their own symptoms and medical history. The physicians were able to correctly diagnose 72% of the patients (mind, that’s 72% without running any tests), while symptom checkers could only get 34% right. And when it came to serious conditions, doctors were far more accurate than even the best symptom checking tools.

Cancer Network, Gaps Exist Between Patient Perception, Physician Recollection of MPN Visits By Leah Lawrence — More than one-third of patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) who responded to a research survey were not “very satisfied” with their physician’s overall management and communication, according to the results of a study published in Cancer. This and other discrepancies between patient and physician recollection of interactions point to the need for improved patient education and patient/physician communication, the study found. “This analysis of MPN Landmark survey data suggests that patient and physician respondents often view the assessment of MPN prognosis, disease burden, and treatment goals differently, with physician respondents overestimating the ability of patients to recognize symptoms as MPN-related,” wrote Ruben A. Mesa, MD, of Mayo Clinic Cancer Center in Scottsdale, Arizona, and colleagues.
Chanhassen Villager, Commentary: Chan family offers heartfelt thanks for community support — Melanie was first diagnosed with a brain tumor in January after suddenly having a series of migraines that each lasted more than a week.

Dr. Daniels told us that because Melanie’s tumor appeared to be low grade, we didn’t need to panic and rush into surgery. We could catch our breath and “watch and wait” to see what the tumor would do. And what’s more, Melanie could keep her spot in “Beauty and the Beast” at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres, as she had been cast in the show just prior to her diagnosis.

Star Tribune, A tale of good fortune, with thanks to Minnesota's immigrants by Paul Olson — After 24 years of being “cured” of prostate cancer, it came back. My PSA number shot up from less than 0.01 to 16.5. My urologist, who did the original surgery, said this was virtually unheard of. He ordered six different scans. Nothing showed up. Finally, he called his buddies at the Mayo Clinic, who — believe it or not — saw me the next day. A team at Mayo had devised a new scanning device that was especially suited to detect the undetectable — the C-11 Scanner — and they wanted me as a test case. Could they detect the undetectable? Here’s where the real story — the one about immigrants — begins. As I wait anxiously in his office, Dr. K bursts through the door. He’s Korean. My anxiety shifts to wondering: What’s his education, qualifications, etc.?

ELLE magazine, After Reading This, Gum Will Be Dead to You — If you've got more of a sweet tooth and prefer the full-sugar variety, you can add an extra five calories, making each little piece between seven and 10 calories. There is a saving grace, though: Depending on how long you chew for, you could be burning off the calories you're taking in. According to the Mayo Clinic you'd burn 11 calories chewing for an hour, so if you keep the gum moving in your mouth for anything between 15 minutes and half an hour for sugar free, and 30 minutes to an hour for full sugar, you're almost in negative-cal territory.
