Mayo Clinic: Gut bacteria may lead to multiple sclerosis treatment

A human gut microbe discovered by researchers at Mayo Clinic may help treat autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, according to findings published in the journal Cell Reports. The Mayo research team, including researchers from thFox 9 Twin Cities University of Iowa, tested gut microbial samples from patients on a mouse model of MS. Of three bacterial strains, they found one microbe, called Prevotella histicola, effectively suppressed immune disease in the preclinical model of MS. “If we can use the microbes already in the human body to treat human disease beyond the gut itself, we may be onto a new era of medicine,” said a statement from Dr. Joseph Murray, M.D., a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist. “We are talking about bugs as drugs."

NPR, Scientists Aim For Better, Cheaper Tests For Alzheimer's by Shirley S. Wang — At the recent Alzheimer's Association International Conference in London, scientists presented early but promising data on a new blood test and a novel brain imaging technique. They also unveiled preliminary data on a study to investigate the potential clinical usefulness of a test that's already on the market but isn't widely reimbursed by insurance… Ronald Petersen, director of the Alzheimer's Disease Research Center at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, who wasn't involved in the blood-test research, called the data "very impressive" but cautioned that the findings need to be replicated elsewhere. "It's exciting," says Petersen, but "it's not ready for prime time."

NBC News, Finding the Right Medication: Gene Test May Help Treat Depression by Shamard Charles and Lauren Dunn — According to a study conducted by the Mayo Clinic that looked at one genetic test similar to many used in hospitals (GeneSight Pscychotropic), symptoms of depression were reduced by 70 percent compared to treatments prescribed without genetic testing. While the results are striking, this technology is not a guarantee of complete resolution of depressive symptoms or medication side effects.

MPR, Glen Campbell's doctor reflects on singer's contribution to Alzheimer's awareness by Cathy Wurzer — Tributes are coming in from all corners of the music world after the death of singer, TV and movie star Glen Campbell, who died Tuesday at the age of 81. …Campbell received treatment at Rochester's Mayo Clinic for the disease. A documentary was made about his experience called "I'll Be Me." The film also featured his doctor, Ron Petersen, who spoke with MPR's Cathy Wurzer about Campbell's life., Glen Campbell's doctor: Music star was 'striking example' of Alzheimer's quirks by A. Pawlowski — As Glen Campbell transformed from a country music legend to an Alzheimer’s patient, Dr. Ronald Petersen was by his side. Petersen, director of the Mayo Clinic Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, was the late entertainer’s physician. He saw first-hand how music and personality affected the course of the disease in Campbell, robbing him of the ability to remember lyrics, but not guitar solos or social graces.

AARP, Glen Campbell's Final Gift by Kathleen Fifield — Officially diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2011, Campbell swiftly set off on a goodbye tour, with a five-week adieu turning into a 15-city marathon. Ronald Petersen, a neurologist who treated Campbell at the Mayo Clinic, says that as bold as it was of Campbell to go public with his diagnosis at the time (something that very few celebrities choose to do), it was “additionally courageous, and important, of him to allow a film crew to document what’s happening to him on the road as the disease progresses.” The resulting documentary, Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me, was released in 2014.

STAT, Fans ‘didn’t care if he messed up’: Glen Campbell’s doctor discusses his struggle with Alzheimer’s by Damian Garde — Glen Campbell’s decades-long musical career came to an end Tuesday, when the 81-year-old country music superstar died after a six-year struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. Campbell’s choice — to go public with his diagnosis and then invite a camera crew to track its every effect — made waves in the Alzheimer’s field, said Dr. Ronald Petersen, the Mayo Clinic neurologist who treated the singer. Patients and their families can feel alienated, ashamed, and alone after such a diagnosis, making Campbell’s willingness to be candid a potential light in the dark, said Petersen, who leads the Mayo Clinic Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. STAT talked to Peterson about how “I’ll Be Me” came to be and the legacy it left for his famous patient. The interview has been condensed.

STAT, The places in America where seniors are most — and least — likely to take their blood pressure meds by Rebecca Robbins — Your ZIP code can signal a lot about your health — including how consistent you are in taking your pills. STAT wanted to know: Where in America are people most likely to take their prescription drugs? And where are they least likely?... And, crucially, Olmsted County is home to one of the world’s best-known hospitals, Mayo Clinic, which has five primary care clinics serving the county’s residents. Mayo is among the providers pushing a model of community care aimed in part at boosting medication adherence, according to Dr. Robert Stroebel, a primary care physician at Mayo. The tweaks can be simple but powerful, like making sure that everything is done consistently during an office visit and following up with calls or messages reminding at-risk patients to come back in. “If we have a mechanism to identify those patients and engage with them, then we can hopefully readdress the issues that may be leading to their non-adherence,” Stroebel said.

Health, Blue Light-Blocking Glasses That Might Help You Sleep by Anthea Levi — All colors of light have the potential to cause retinal injury depending on the intensity and duration of exposure, says Raymond Iezzi, MD, an ophthalmologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. But blue light—the primary type of light emitted from LED-based devices like your computer and smartphone—has a shorter wavelength than other colors of light, and it delivers more energy to the eye compared to softer (think: red or yellow) sources. "Individuals tend to blink less frequently when mesmerized by what is on their screens, or by simply focusing on their work for extended periods," explains Dr. Iezzi. "This can worsen symptoms of dry eye and cause burning, irritation, and blurred vision."

USA Today, Is it safe to do intense exercise at 8 months pregnant, like Serena? by Ashley Miller — Serena Williams' recent Snapchat photos showing the tennis star volleying a medicine ball at 35 weeks pregnant have some wondering: What's a healthy exercise routine while pregnant?...Margaret Dow, a physician of obstetrics gynecology with the Mayo Clinic, said Williams is sharing a beautiful message about exercise while pregnant. "Celebrating fitness in pregnancy is a fantastic move," Dow said.

Romper, Can I Get Pregnant If I Had Cancer As A Child? Science Gives You Options by Kelly Mullen-McWilliams — "We talk about how child cancer survival rates are over 80 percent — four decades ago most of these children would not survive, but now we know they will," notes Dr. Asma Javed, M.B.B.S, of The Mayo Clinic Fertility Preservation Program, part of The Mayo Clinic Children's Center, in an interview with Romper. And this statistic, while deeply encouraging, puts fertility front and center. Javed explains: "As young adults, they will question why they don't have children and why there weren't any options offered to them. There are studies that show that for long-term cancer survivors, their number one regret . . . is not being able to have children."

Romper, Can I Have An Ultrasound With A Tipped Uterus? You'd Be Surprised At What Science Can Do by Alexis Barad-Cutler — One of the perks of those frequent treks to the OB-GYN's office throughout 40 weeks (more or less) of pregnancy, is the photo album's worth of pictures you get from your hard-won ultrasounds. But an ultrasound isn't always "fun" for the woman involved, especially if she has any medical conditions that could make a "sneak peek" more painful than pleasant. So, can you have an ultrasound with a tipped uterus? Turns out, there are a few things every woman needs to know — whether she's pregnant or not — before making an appointment to see that capable ultrasound technician. According to the Mayo Clinic's website, a tipped uterus (also called a tilted uterus, among a few other more medical-sounding terms) is a "normal anatomical variation." In layperson speak, that means that this occurs naturally in some women, and isn't something to necessarily freak out about. The Mayo Clinic explains that in most women, the uterus tips forward at the cervix and towards the navel.

Romper, Here's How You'll Feel After You Get Pitocin, Because It Pays To Be Prepared by Candace Ganger — According to the Mayo Clinic, how you react to Pitocin, and how long it takes for the cervix to "ripen" and labor, is entirely dependent on you as an individual. The clinic adds that the use of this medication, which does cause contractions, could cause them to be too strong and, in rare cases, can tear the uterus.

International Business Times, Walking Corpse Syndrome: The mysterious disease which leaves people thinking they are dead by Lea Surugue — Cotard's syndrome leads patients to deny their own existence or the existence of some of their organs. One of the largest studies to date on the topic has now confirmed that brain injuries may be playing a significant role in the development of the condition, which is more often described as a psychiatric disease…"Though I cannot specifically comment on why Cotard's was left out, I presume it has something to do with the paucity of research completed on the topic," Aradhana Sahoo, from the Mayo Clinic (Minnesota) told IBTimes UK. "While a number of case reports detailing individual presentations of Cotard's syndrome in patients have arisen over the years, few scientific studies have been published on the disorder."

Atlanta Journal Constitution, Alkaline water: Is this newly trendy water better than the rest? by Nneka M. Okona — From independent sellers touting month supplies of alkaline water for purchase, to those looking for another way to maintain optimum health, alkaline water has become a buzzword of sorts… The benefits of drinking alkaline water vary depending on who you ask. According to the Mayo Clinic, some studies suggest regularly drinking alkaline water can help slow bone loss.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 5 easy ways to improve your sleep (without sleeping longer) by Kelly Sundstrom — No matter how unpredictable your ability to fall asleep may sometimes feel, your brain actually wants to be on a regimented sleep schedule. According to the Mayo Clinic, most people only need between 7 and 8 hours of sleep per night. Try to put yourself on a schedule by going to bed at the same time every night - and stick to it. If you can't seem to fall asleep within 20 minutes, get up and read a book or take a hot bath, then try again when you feel drowsy.

Healio, Specialty centers may confer improved outcomes for long QT syndrome — Patients with long QT syndrome who were treated at a single specialized center had reduced rates of cardiac events, according to research published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. “Although long QT syndrome is a potentially lethal syndrome, when it is recognized and treated, sudden death should almost never happen,” Michael J. Ackerman, MD, PhD, director of the Long QT Syndrome/Genetic Heart Rhythm Clinic at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, said in a press release. “The expectation needs to shift from merely preventing sudden death to enabling these patients and their families to live and thrive despite the diagnosis.”

News4Jax, Mayo Clinic News Network: Mediterranean diet: A heart-healthy eating plan — If you're looking for a heart-healthy eating plan, the Mediterranean diet might be right for you. The Mediterranean diet incorporates the basics of healthy eating -- plus a splash of flavorful olive oil and perhaps even a glass of red wine -- among other components characterizing the traditional cooking style of countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea.

Alzforum, As Youth Fades, So Does the Fire of Glycolysis in the Brain — One source of vulnerability may be a diminished buffer against oxidative stress. “While this may be a normal physiological development of old age, an associated aspect of decreasing aerobic glycolysis is a loss of neuroprotection via the pentose phosphate pathway that protects against oxidative stress, thus increasing the risk for oxidative damage. This, in turn, may be a key predisposing factor to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. This may be one reason why these diseases are age-related,” said Richard Caselli, Mayo Clinic Arizona, Scottsdale, in an email to Alzforum. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), too, is marked by oxidative stress in neurons.

Star Tribune, Miromatrix has high hopes for its bioengineered liver by Joe Carlson — Miromatrix is developing a process that transforms pig livers for use in humans through "reseeding" a white collagen shell… It may sound like science fiction, but the first attempt at this will take place before the year is out: A pig at the Mayo Clinic will have its liver removed, and a new liver “recellularized” with human and pig cells implanted in its place, to test whether a Miromatrix bioengineered liver can keep the pig alive for at least two days. Results of the experiment should be in by this time next year, and that may clear the way for the first human implant around 2020.

Star Tribune, Residents fight for old Rochester by Matt McKinney — As new construction projects rise in downtown Rochester for an ambitious Mayo Clinic expansion, a group of people who fear the loss of historic buildings has redoubled efforts to save them. A consultant will soon deliver an interim report that makes the case for creating a historic district in downtown Rochester, a move that some preservationists hope will be a bulwark to protect historic buildings from the red-hot property market that Mayo's expansion has created.

Children’s Hospitals Today, Families and Clinicians Fight Against Sepsis by Darcie Reason — At Mayo Clinic Children's Center in Rochester, Minnesota, Charles Huskins, M.D., vice chair of Quality, remembers another young girl admitted to the ED who had difficulty communicating her symptoms and pain. After a careful evaluation, lab tests and a blood culture came back negative. Additional imaging studies showed no abnormalities. Several hours later, the patient's mother noticed a change in her daughter's mental status, which triggered the nurse to reassess vital signs and call in the team. She was deteriorating to severe sepsis." "That's the dynamic nature of sepsis—it can turn quickly and appear differently in each child. We have to be vigilant and we have to assess and reassess," he says. "The input from the parents is critical—that's another flag something is wrong."

EHR Intelligence, Most Significant Epic, Cerner Health IT Achievements of 2017 by Kate Monica — Epic Systems and Cerner Corporation solidified their status as top dogs in the health IT industry in 2017. Both health IT companies scored massive contracts this year, with Epic continuing to gain popularity among the private sector and Cerner expanding its presence in the public sphere… Epic Systems collaborated extensively with Mayo Clinic in 2017 to foster mutual improvements for both the health IT company and the large health system.

Medscape, Oncologists Still Avoid Discussing Cost of Care by Theodore Bosworth — "You do not go to medical school to understand the cost of care and how it impacts your patients, but it is clearly becoming important to learn," said Rahma Warsame, MD, a research hematologist-oncologist at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota. She was among those who presented discouraging data on the infrequency with which clinicians discuss cost but acknowledged that the subject can be overwhelming. Clinicians do not typically have the tools to provide meaningful guidance.

Neurology Advisor, Parkinson's Patients May Face Greater Risk of Melanoma — The investigators said that since there is such a strong connection between these diseases, doctors treating patients for either disease should watch for signs of the other. They also recommend that doctors counsel patients about their risk of the other condition. "Future research should focus on identifying common genes, immune responses, and environmental exposures that may link these two diseases," first author Lauren Dalvin, MD, of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., said in a Mayo news release. "If we can pinpoint the cause of the association between Parkinson's disease and melanoma, we will be better able to counsel patients and families about their risk of developing one disease in the setting of the other."

WEAU Eau Claire, Mayo Clinic Health System implements new medical record software — The switch to the new software means employees at locations throughout Wisconsin have been busy learning how to use the new tool. “Every caregiver had probably a minimum of 8 hours of training and then a significant amount of homework and online training as well,” Dr. Richard Helmers the northwest Wisconsin regional vice president at Mayo Clinic Health System said. Helmers says the Epic system will allow Mayo to take care of patients more efficiently.  “The major goal of this was to have the knowledge and expertise of Mayo Clinic available to every Mayo Clinic caregiver at every Mayo Clinic site for every Mayo Clinic patient,” Dr. Helmers explained.

KEYC Mankato, Back To School Vaccinations by Shawn Loging — Mayo Clinic Health System - Mankato Infectious Diseases Physician Assistant Jessica Sheehy said, "Most of the vaccination series have been shown to have 99 percent efficacy or greater if you do complete the vaccination series and you also help protect those children who are unable to have the vaccinations due to other illnesses such as immunocompromised state or maybe needing chemotherapy." Sheehy assures parents that a study suggesting a link between vaccines and autism has been disproven.
