Mayo Clinic in the News Weekly Highlights for March 16, 2018

By Emily Blahnik




New York Times, Black Cancer Matters by Susan Gubar — Given the mortality discrepancies, it is disturbing that African-Americans are underrepresented as subjects in cancer research, as are other minorities. According to research by Dr. Narjust Duma of the Mayo Clinic, only 6 percent of participants in clinical trials are black, although African-Americans make up approximately 12 percent of the population; Hispanics amount to 3 percent of participants, although they make up about 15 percent of the population.

Wall Street Journal, At-Home Cancer-Risk Test Opens New—and Fraught—Field by Thomas M. BurtonThe debate feeds into a larger one about how the government should regulate the lab-developed test business, which has mushroomed in the more than three decades since it arose. One of the first to create such a model was the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. It uses its own tests to evaluate thousands of such patients’ samples flown in daily. The field now features some of the world’s most sophisticated tests, such as “next-generation sequencing” diagnostic analysis of multiple mutations in cancerous tumors.

HealthDay, Want to Know Gender Identity? Ask Away, Patients Say by Robert Preidt — The researchers said that finding out about patients' sexual orientation and gender identity is important in order to reduce health disparities among LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex) patients. "Our results should help ease the concerns of providers who want to deliver the highest-quality care for their patients but may not ask sexual orientation or gender identity questions for fear of distressing or offending their patients," study co-author Joan Griffin said in a news release from Mayo Clinic, where she's a health services researcher. Griffin said the findings may apply "to relatively similar areas in the country, especially the Midwest, but there may be differences in other regions in the U.S. or by cultural groups that we did not capture in our sample."

HealthDay, Genetic Heart Defects Rarely the Cause of SIDS, Research Shows by Robert Preidt — Heart diseases linked to genetic flaws cause far fewer sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) cases than once thought, a new study finds. In a genetic investigation of 419 SIDS cases, Mayo Clinic researchers found that genetic mutations associated with heart disease accounted for about 5 percent. "Through this research, we now know that the vast majority of SIDS cases do not stem from genetic heart diseases," study co-senior author Dr. Michael Ackerman said in a Mayo Clinic news release.

VICE, This Is How Much Longer You'll Live If You Stop Eating Meat — Researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona reviewed six large-scale studies that tracked more than 1.5 million people for periods ranging from five-and-a-half to 28 years. Participants ranged from hardcore vegans to those who stuffed their face with meat every day. Their review, published under the title "Is Meat Killing Us?" in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association, found that meat is, indeed, killing us.

Tonic, Do Weighted Blankets Work for Insomnia or Anxiety? by Shayla Love — Lois Krahn, a sleep specialist and a professor of psychiatry at the Mayo Clinic, was also particularly troubled by the neurotransmitter claims. She said that even if a study measured serotonin in the blood, that wouldn’t necessarily reflect what’s going on in the brain, behind the blood brain barrier. Measuring melatonin from blood might be a bit more reliable, but you could only do so by “creeping into someone's bedroom and drawing blood in the middle of the night,” she says. “Really the best measures would be from having a shunt in a person's brain that goes into the ventricle, and I can't believe they've done that. It just seems like proposing a theory with no data. I'd be very skeptical and cautious about that.”

USA Today, Stephen Hawking had ALS. What is it? A look at the motor neuron disease by Mary Bowerman — Symptoms can vary from person to person, but typically involved muscle weakness, stiffness or slurred speech, according to Mayo Clinic. The disease is progressive, and eventually results in total lack of movement and the ability to speak or breathe.

CNN, In the fight for her life, young professional runner isn't slowing down by Samantha Bresnahan — Gabriele Grunewald is much like many young 30-somethings: She loves her dog, married her college sweetheart, enjoys the coffee shop around the corner from her Minneapolis apartment and likes to explore the trendy new restaurants and brewpubs around town. But in one crucial way, she stands apart, though not alone. She is battling an extremely rare cancer. And it is not slowing her down… Grunewald now receives her immunotherapy transfusions at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, closer to home, while having Ho remotely manage her care.

Washington Post, Las Vegas fund begins payouts to shooting victims, but one long-hospitalized survivor isn’t among them by Sarah Kaplan — In an interview Monday, Scott Nielson, chairman of the victims’ fund committee, said he was aware of the Melansons’ situation and was working to address it…After speaking with Nielson on Monday, Steve Melanson will need to fill out a new claim application. He said he hopes to use the funds to take his wife to see gastrointestinal specialists at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota — something that probably will involve costly transportation fees and co-pays.

Post-Bulletin, 5 Mayo projects receive grants — The Minnesota Partnership for Biotechnology and Medical Genomics awarded five grants to Mayo Clinic collaborative projects in 2018. Five teams at the clinic will begin two-year projects to work on treatment options for the following diseases: epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis, colorectal cancer and bacterial infections.

Post-Bulletin, Heard on the Street: Mayo Clinic doctor takes on role with Wisconsin firm — A Mayo Clinic doctor is adding leadership at a Wisconsin biotech firm to his list of duties. Dr. Paul Limburg, a gastroenterologist, was named co-chief medical officer for cancer detection company Exact Sciences at the start of this quarter. He and Mayo Clinic have financial interest in Exact Sciences.

Post-Bulletin, Mayo fellow uses AI to detect seizures by Anne Halliwell — A fellow at Mayo Clinic is using artificial intelligence to pinpoint seizure-causing areas in patients’ brains. And it might not end there. Yogatheesan Varatharajah, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Illinois, researches ways to apply AI to medicine — specifically, to disorders in our brains. Using data from nonseizure times, artificial intelligence can identify seizure-generating parts of the brain much more quickly than usual. Then, when an epileptologist looks at a patient’s records and MRI scans, the AI’s conclusion also would pop up — “here are the sensors within the seizure-generating region, according to these EEG readings.” “Looking at those, if there is a good concordance within the different ways of identifying the seizure emitting regions, they can go ahead and do this surgery instead of waiting for seizures to occur,” Varatharajah said. “For the patient, the most important thing is you save a lot of trauma.”

Post-Bulletin, Lung cancer survivor donates to Rochester, Phoenix Mayo campuses by Anne Halliwell — On Monday, Linda Wortman presented a nearly $20,000 check to Mayo Clinic to fund lung cancer research and treatment. Wortman, a lung cancer survivor and Mayo Clinic patient, won the Team Draft Lung Cancer Survivors Super Bowl Challenge with her team, “Run Like L.” She raised a little more than $50,000 by the time the Super Bowl rolled around. Much of that will now fund Mayo Clinic research, said Chris Draft, the co-founder of Team Draft.

Post-Bulletin, Mayo Clinic makes recycling a priority by Allison Roe — As the largest employer in Minnesota, Mayo Clinic has a lot of influence on the local community, and also is in the state and national spotlight, whether for medical reasons or not. Because health care is an incredibly resource-heavy industry, Mayo is fighting an uphill battle when it comes to sustainability. But the clinic is making giant steps in practicing environmental responsibility hrough a robust use of their Recycling Center and initiatives set forth by the Facilities Operations department along with Mayo Clinic’s Green Committee.

KTTC, Former Mayo Clinic doctor resigning from U of M Board of Regents — A retired Mayo Clinic physician is resigning from her position on the University of Minnesota Board of Regents.

KIMT, At-home test doesn’t replace the doctor by Annalisa Pardo — The Food and Drug Administration recently approved an at-home breast cancer test. The test is through the genetic testing company 23andme. It detects mutations of the breast cancer gene BRCA1/BRCA2, which is commonly found in Ashkenazi Jewish women.  “If somebody carries a mutation, they are at higher risk of developing breast cancer,” Sandhya Pruthi, M.D., Chief Medical Editor of, said.  The test detects three out of 1,000 mutations of the gene in this population, not the general public.

KARE 11, VERIFY: Do hangovers get worse as we age? — Our source is Dr. Donald Hensrud, the Medical Director of the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program in Rochester. So, do hangovers get worse as we age? "The short answer is yes. And, there are many different reasons for this," said Dr. Hensrud. Ok, just like we thought, it's true. But, why? "As we age, we gain a little bit of body fat. Alcohol is not absorbed by body fat, so our levels can rise a little bit," said Dr. Hensrud.

Twin Cities Business, Mayo Clinic Ups Stake in DIY Genetic Testing Firm, Sees Health Benefits in New Tech by Don Jacobson — The Mayo Clinic is continuing to make venture capital investments in direct-to-consumer genetic testing, which scholars from its own Center for Individualized Medicine recently determined could be “potentially beneficial” for the public under a new generation of products designed to improve protection of users’ personal information. The market potential of do-it-yourself genetic testing services, which don’t require the direct participation of a medical provider, is thought to be considerable, estimated by some observers to be set to grow from its current annual level of $117 million to around $600 million by 2026 – a nearly 20 percent annual growth rate.

WKBT La Crosse, Kids' misuse of '' app causes concern by Sarah Thamer — …Pediatrician Charlie Peters with Mayo Clinic Health System says the comments that kids may be receiving on the videos could have long term negative effects ."Their self image, self concept, self esteem." He says it's important for parents to keep a close eye on what their kids are being exposed to. "It's a reminder that what they can come in contact with would not necessarily be information or material that parents would approve of."

WKBT La Crosse, Local emergency rooms to play key role in tackling drug addiction by Sarah Thamer — Mayo Clinic Health System Vice President Tanner Holst says many people will get discharged from the ER directly after they've been stabilized, which doesn't help solve the problem. He says emergency room recovery coaches could potentially reduce opioid-related overdose deaths and cut back on emergency room visits. "Some of these individuals may not be an opioid crisis but they may use the ER as a place to receive support where having a community resource like this that's on call 24/7 potentially can really give someone a different avenue to seek treatment."

WKBT La Crosse, Study finds e-cigarette users are exposed to more toxins by Ryan Hennessy — Doctors at Mayo Clinic Health System say that young people are at a higher risk from the e-cigarettes and that there is a common misconception surrounding them. “We know that there's a lot of misconceptions out there about how safe is vaping or e-cigarettes, in other words.

KEYC Mankato, Fairmont Women Sew "Angel Gowns" for Infants by Temi Adeleye — For the second year of their sewing event, the Council of Catholic Women for St. John Vianney Catholic Church, decided to sew angel gowns. The infant gowns are for baptismal or burial purposes, and they will be sent to Haiti, as well as Catholic Charities. President of CCW for the St. John Vianney Chapter Beth Kloeckner said they were inspired to start the event. "Other Council of Catholic Women have been doing this project for a while, again we had extra material and people interested in it so we brought it home," said Kloeckner.  Jeanne Schofield was the coordinator for the sewing day. As a laundry aide at Mayo Clinic Health System, Schofield stumbled upon loads of pillowcase fabric, that she could not get rid of. "It's far too good of fabric to just put into a dumpster, so I went to find an area for it to be useful, for and this one area," said Schofield. "And from there it just mushroomed and grew a life of its own."

KEYC Mankato, Local Pastor Receives Anterior Hip Replacement Now Offered At Mayo In Mankato by Samantha Huot — ...Omtvedt received a double hip replacement last November after experiencing what he thought was back pain for about a year. But Omtvedt opted out of the traditional replacement route, instead becoming one of Dr. Eric Busse's first patients at Mayo Clinic in Mankato to undergo the anterior surgery approach. "Before my partner and I came down here there was no one in the area doing the direct anterior total hip. So, we're just offering a new service," Dr. Busse, M.D., Mayo Clinic Orthopedics said.

AZCentral, The Gilbert miracle baby and the mother who had a heart transplant 'so I can understand' by Ken Altucker — Steven Lester, a Mayo Clinic cardiologist who was not involved in Welch's care, said the most common inheritance pattern for this heart condition is autosomal dominant, when a person gets one copy of the mutated gene from either parent. A child has a 50 percent chance of inheriting the gene if either parent is a carrier. A flip of the coin. The question is when symptoms may first appear. Onset could come when a person is an adult.

Jacksonville Daily Record, Mayo Clinic seeks permit for $50M addition — Mayo Clinic submitted a permit application for a $50 million Mayo South Building Addition, a project announced a year ago as part of growth at the Jacksonville campus. The Robins & Morton Group of Orlando is the contractor for the addition to create a five-story, 104,350-square-foot building at the 4500 San Pablo Road S. campus.

Her focus is preventative cardiology and women’s heart health.

Medscape, Oncologists Getting 6% of Drug Price Is 'Financial Conflict' by Roxanne Nelson — "No one is immune from $ temptation.... We have a system that rewards oncologists and their chemotherapy offices with more $ for giving more expensive chemo. This has to change," said Vincent Rajkumar, MD, a professor of medicine and a hematologist/oncologist at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota. He was highlighting a controversial topic — Medicare Part B reimbursement for drugs that poses a "financial conflict" for oncologists in choosing which drug to prescribe.

Business Insider, Everything you've been told about how much water you're supposed to drink is a lie — here's the real rule you should follow by Kevin Loria — Specific numbers and goals don't make a lot of sense. That's because the amount of water needed to avoid dehydration varies depending on a huge number of factors. As the Mayo Clinic explains, you'll need more water if you're exercising, if it's hot or humid outside, if you're fighting off illness, or if you're pregnant or breast-feeding.

Modern Healthcare, Cancer patient crochets through chemotherapy, brings hope to other patients — Crocheting wasn't Bill Schluter's go-to until he went to see his doctor.  Five years ago, Schluter picked up a crochet hook and yarn when the doctors at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., suggested that the handicraft could help him with recovering from his short-term memory loss after a brain injury… He recently made more blankets for 30 children at the Ronald McDonald House in Rochester. "I hope they get out of the blankets the knowledge that someone who doesn't know them cares," Schluter told Mayo Clinic. Schluter has completed his last round of chemo but hopes to keep crocheting for those in need.

MedPage Today, Inhaled Nitrite Flops as HFpEF Therapy by Nicole Lou — Delivery of the compound by nebulizer did not improve peak exercise capacity on cardiopulmonary exercise testing, as it left patients with the same 14 ml/min/kg VO2 as their peers randomized to placebo (P=0.27), Barry Borlaug, MD, of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, reported at the annual American College of Cardiology meeting here. "HFpEF remains an enormous unmet public health problem. Further study is required to determine the potential efficacy of other nitric oxide-providing therapies in HFpEF," Borlaug urged.

Healio, High microsatellite instability, mutation load may predict checkpoint inhibitor response — Several trials have shown patients with MSI-high colorectal tumors have significant responses to checkpoint inhibitors, Ramesh K. Ramanathan, MD, professor of medicine and associate director of the early therapeutics program at Mayo Clinic Cancer Center and director of gastrointestinal medical oncology at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, said during his presentation…“The overall survival for pretreated patients at 1 year is about 50%, which is pretty encouraging. Typically, with chemotherapy, you would expect 20% to 30%,” Ramanathan said. “However, these studies did not have a control arm.”

Healio, Congestive HF risk elevated in patients with breast cancer, lymphoma — Carolyn M. Larsen, MD, assistant professor of medicine at Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona, and colleagues conducted a retrospective study of participants from the Rochester Epidemiology Project, matching 900 patients with breast cancer or lymphoma with 1,500 controls with no cancer history and followed them for new-onset congestive HF from 1985 to 2010 (median, 8.5 years). “There was a gap in the existing knowledge of the long-term cardiovascular risk associated with anthracycline-based chemotherapy, which many patients with breast cancer and lymphoma receive,” Larsen told Cardiology Today.

Healio, Molecular testing for thyroid cancer can reduce unnecessary surgeries — According to Hossein Gharib, MD, professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science in Rochester, Minnesota, and past president of the American Thyroid Association, both of these tests offer a 95% negative predictive value, which means they are highly accurate in ruling out malignancy. However, he added that neither test features a particularly high positive predictive value. “We like the positive predictive value to be high; in other words, when we do the test and it is positive, we want to say that there is a 90% chance that this is cancer, so let’s go to surgery,” he said. “These tests don’t have that high a probability, so in that sense, they are a bit more limited.”

Telegraph, Knitting should be prescribed on NHS to lower blood pressure, reduce depression and slow dementia — A study of over 70s by the Mayo Clinic in the US , found that knitting was associated with decreased odds of experiencing mild-cognitive impairment, which increases the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

MENAFN, Twice-weekly workouts may be best medicine to slow cognitive decline — MCI becomes increasingly common at older ages and is characterised by mild problems with thinking and memory that usually do not interfere with daily life or independent function. People diagnosed with MCI are more likely, however, to go on to develop Alzheimer's or other dementias than people without it. Until now, said Ronald Petersen, the lead author of the new study and American Academy of Neurology (AAN) treatment guidelines, 'Clinicians didn't know what to do with these people. Now that we know that it's a burgeoning condition we need to pay attention when folks come in and complain.' Petersen, who directs the Mayo Clinic Alzheimer's Disease Research Centre in Rochester, Minnesota, and his co-authors found that between ages 60 and 64, 6.7 per cent of people have MCI.

Neurology Now, Marvel Medic: A comic book hero, popular in Mexico, inspired a migrant worker to pursue a career in neuroscience and give back to underserved populations. by Alice Garbarini Hurley — As a little boy from a tiny farming village near Mexicali, Mexico, Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa, MD, used to love to stop by the local convenience store to pick up the latest edition of his favorite comic book, Kaliman, el Hombre Increible (Kaliman, the Incredible Man). He and his pals Martin and Efrain would pore over the exploits of the superhero, whose powers included scientific knowledge, fast healing, and telepathy. The young boy idolized this mystical, cerebral hero who dressed in white and wore a turban with a K emblazoned on it…The future doctor grew up on a small parcel of land “in the middle of nowhere,” enjoying what he calls an exploratory life.

Next Avenue, Are You Being Helpful or Ageist for People with Dementia? by Denise Logeland — A few years ago, Angela Lunde, a leader in patient and caregiver education for the Mayo Clinic Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center in Rochester, Minn., sat at a table between two people who live on opposite sides of a dilemma. On one side of Lunde was a man with early- to mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease. “He said, ‘What I really want from my community is I want somebody to feel comfortable coming up to me when I’m out and about and asking me if I need help’ if he looked confused,” Lunde recalled. On her other side sat a college-age woman who responded to him: “But I sometimes am not sure I’m supposed to do that, because I may be implying [that you can’t figure things out] and it may offend you.” That disconnect is common between people living with a cognitive impairment and those who encounter them at work or in the community. It’s important to overcome this, Lunde said. For people with impairment, social isolation and its negative health effects is a risk.

Bustle, What To Do If You Have A Panic Attack In Public, According To Someone Who’s Been There by Brandi Neal "The anxiety is caused by fear that there's no easy way to escape or get help if the anxiety intensifies," the Mayo Clinic reported. "Most people who have agoraphobia develop it after having one or more panic attacks, causing them to worry about having another attack and avoid the places where it may happen again."… If you're not sure if you've ever had a panic attack, the Mayo Clinic lists symptoms as "rapid heart rate, trouble breathing or a feeling of choking, chest pain or pressure, lightheadedness or dizziness, feeling shaky, numb or tingling, excessive sweating, sudden flushing or chills, upset stomach or diarrhea, feeling a loss of control, and fear of dying."

SELF, 7 Possible Reasons You’re Having Those Weird Memory Lapses by Allison Goldman — The older you get, the larger your brain’s verbal Rolodex and the less likely you are to use the majority of the words you know. But the less often you use a word, the harder it is to access it in your memories, David Knopman, M.D., a professor of neurology at Mayo Clinic and a fellow of the American Academy of Neurology, tells SELF. That’s how you wind up frustrated when trying to remember the name of the cat your neighbor had when you were 10.

SELF, Here’s What to Expect Before, During, and After an MRI by Korin Miller — If you have tattoos, the Mayo Clinic advises asking your doctor whether they might impact your test results, since some darker inks can contain metal. It’s also important to tell your doctor if you’re pregnant or think you may be pregnant. Medical experts don’t understand the effects of magnetic fields on fetuses, and your doctor may recommend using an alternative test or postponing the MRI until after you give birth, the Mayo Clinic says.
