Wall Street Journal, Deals Give Drugmakers Rights to DNA Data by Melanie Evans — Deals between drugmakers and hospital systems to mine the genetic profiles of hospital patients are triggering concerns over the control of valuable genetic data. Drugmakers have been spending hundreds of millions of dollars for access to patient information because of the data’s potential to help unlock disease insights and discover new drugs. They are striking deals to sequence patients’ genetic code, including with hospital systems like Geisinger in Pennsylvania, Mount Sinai Health System in New York and Mayo Clinic in Minnesota…Agreements generally bar hospitals from sharing data with other companies, or the drug companies from sharing data with hospitals’ rivals, according to interviews with drug-company and hospital officials involved in the deals. “They didn’t want us giving data to their competitors,” said researcher Dr. James Cerhan of the Mayo Clinic, which will sequence 100,000 patients under an agreement with Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.
Advisory Board, 5 years ago, Mayo Clinic made 3 huge bets. Are they paying off? by Jackie Kimmell — In 2014, Mayo Clinic celebrated its 150th anniversary—a moment when the storied health system might have been expected to rest on its laurels, or at least to double down on its historical strategy. Mayo's then-CEO, John Noseworthy, decided on a very different approach. In a commentary published at the time, he shared a striking vision of the health system's future in 2020. While emphasizing Mayo's continued commitment to its core values, he announced three strategic bets that seemed unexpected and risky—especially compared to the usual hospital growth playbook…

Star Tribune, Let's invest in alternatives to mining for northeastern Minnesota by Michael Paymar — …In 2013, when the Mayo Clinic was hinting that further expansion would occur outside of Minnesota, the state determined there was a compelling interest to make public investments in the Rochester area. The Destination Medical Center (DMC) was created. A public and private investment of $5.6 billion is to be directed to the Rochester area over a 20-year period. These investments are expected to provide dramatic growth with a promise of 35,000 new jobs. PolyMet is promising 350 jobs. While not an apples-to-apples comparison, a future DMC-like investment could be made on the Iron Range in exchange for permanently abandoning sulfide mining.

Mankato Free Press, Prevent injuries by cross training by Michael Hendel — Cross training simply means doing different types of exercise and can be as simple as switching between activities throughout the week. Doing so can help prevent injuries by giving your muscles and joints a break. When you do the same exercises over and over, you can overuse a particular muscle or joint, leading to injury. By varying your routine, the work is spread among different parts of your body. This helps keep you balanced by strengthening muscles and joints that might not be used if you stuck to just one activity. — Michael Hendel, M.D., is an orthopedic surgeon with Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato.

Harvard blog, Want a sharp mind, strong memory? Ramp up activities by Andrew E. Budson, M.D. — A recently published study from researchers at the Mayo Clinic followed 2,000 cognitively normal men and women age 70 or older for about five years. Participants filled out surveys regarding their engagement in five common mentally stimulating pursuits –– social activities, reading books, playing games, making crafts, and using a computer –– in midlife (between ages 50 and 65) and in late life (ages 70 and above). The researchers also performed face-to-face evaluations every 15 months. These evaluations included a neurologic interview and exam, detailed history of their abilities at home and in the community, and neuropsychological testing for memory, language, visuospatial skills, attention, and executive function.
Outside magazine, Is It More Important to Run Faster or Run Longer? by Alex Hutchinson — In practice, I think the urge to crown one single variable as the most important probably isn’t very useful. It reminds of me an an example Mayo Clinic physiologist Michael Joyner sometimes cites: the final of the men’s 5,000 meters at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. The race was won by Bob Schul, who trained pretty much exclusively with twice-a-day interval workouts. The runner-up was Harald Norpoth, who relied on well over 100 miles a week of long, slow distance. Bronze went to Bill Dellinger, who later coached at the University of Oregon and did a mix of intervals and longer, slower runs. Exactly one second separated the three men. As a bonus, also in the race was Ron Clarke, who did mostly medium-paced runs that we would now call threshold training.
TCTMD, AHA Outlines Diagnosis, Treatment Options for Underrecognized Critical Limb Ischemia by Caitlin E. Cox — CLI is “a debilitating disease with increased mortality in the first year of diagnosis, greater than what we see for coronary artery disease,” said writing group chair Sanjay Misra, MD (Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN). Still, “healthcare providers in the cardiovascular space really don’t understand the importance of it and are really missing an opportunity to help patients.” The scientific statement is aimed broadly at clinicians taking care of patients who might be at risk for developing vascular disease. “I think there will be something there for everyone,” said Misra, who stressed to TCTMD that the document stemmed from a multidisciplinary, team effort.
Physics World, Artificial intelligence helps detect atrial fibrillation — “Atrial fibrillation is an arrhythmia where the atrium, or top chamber of the heart, loses its coordinated contractual activity and instead quivers, because the electrical impulses is changed in the way it course through the atrium,” explains Peter Noseworthy of the Mayo Clinic. “So, the top chamber beats irregularly and it causes the bottom chamber, the ventricle, usually to beat fast and irregularly, which can be bothersome, but most importantly it predisposes people to risk of stroke.” He adds that atrial fibrillation can be caused by many conditions, such as valvular heart disease, sleep apnoea and hypertension, but often doesn’t have a clear underlying cause.

Becker’s Hospital Review, Mayo Clinic invests in breast cancer imaging AI by Andrea Park — Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic has entered into a collaboration with Imago Systems, a Lansdowne, Va.-based software company using artificial intelligence for the early detection of abnormalities in imaging data. Under the multiyear agreement, Mayo Clinic will provide financial backing to help Imago develop technology for breast imaging analysis. Additionally, Mayo Clinic researchers will lead and participate in clinical studies to validate the software, which aims to detect early-stage breast cancer in mammograms and other imaging data. Imago's technology uses AI algorithms to uncover more information and insight from traditional grayscale images. The software does not require any additional radiation exposure, and therefore has the potential to be a safe and effective method for improving the diagnostic abilities of radiologists and clinicians, according to Thomas Ramsay, Imago's chairman and CEO.
