Identification of early-onset IBD patients may enable tailored treatment and surveillance plans. With over 50 genes implicated in early-onset IBD, genetic testing should be included in the workup of children under the age of six with IBD. Join Mayo Clinic, in this “Specialty Testing” webinar, for a discussion of this testing and its clinical application.
This "Specialty Testing" webinar describes a new serum test for bile acid malabsorption. Descriptions illustrate how the test can be used as a screening test and as a tool for therapeutic action.
This “Specialty Testing” webinar will discuss the collaborative effort which led to the discovery of Kelch like protein 11 (KLHL11) IgG as a specific biomarker of neurological autoimmunity associated testicular germ cell tumor.
Being able to identify SARS-CoV-2 in tissue is key to better understand the virus that causes COVID-19. Now, a first-of-its-kind test that detects SARS-CoV-2 in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue is available from Mayo Clinic Laboratories.
Dr. Matthew Binnicker addresses the dramatic decrease in flu cases, and the corresponding drop in serious illness and death related to influenza, seen throughout the country this year.
Dendritic cells play a crucial role in the body's immune response. Research has shown that too few of these cells in the blood may signal a defect in innate immunity. Up to this point, however, no clinical test has been available to count dendritic cells.
This "Specialty Testing" webinar will address practical aspects and pitfalls in the molecular diagnosis of brain tumors.
Patrice Brown, PA(ASCP), shares her story of growing up in Virginia and moving to Rochester, Minnesota to work at Mayo Clinic. She also shares her unique perspective of traveling internationally as COVID-19 was starting to spread.
In this month’s “Hot Topic,” Gessi Pino, a genetic counselor in the Biochemical Genetics Lab at Mayo Clinic, and Kimiyo Raymond, M.D., a clinical consultant in the laboratory and an expert in Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation (CDG), discuss glycosylation and its importance in human biology, highlight laboratory testing, and offer strategies to screen and diagnose CDGs.
William Morice II, M.D., Ph.D., chair of the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at Mayo Clinic and president of Mayo Clinic Laboratories, joins the "Answers From the Lab" podcast for his weekly leadership update. In this episode, Dr. Morice and Bobbi Pritt, M.D., look back at how the COVID-19 pandemic reshaped laboratory medicine throughout 2020.
Dr. Graham recalls how his upbringing influenced his outlook on life and discusses the power of investing in relationships.
Xinjie Xu, Ph.D., co-director of Mayo's Genetics and Genomics Laboratory, explains Mayo Clinic Laboratories' updated approach to testing for risk stratification of patients newly diagnosed with plasma cell proliferative disorders, such as multiple myeloma. Based on recently published data, the new testing algorithms focus on use of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) panels, rather than chromosome studies.
In this month’s “Hot Topic,” John Mills, Ph.D., explains the central role of tissue immunofluorescence in the identification of neural antibodies and discusses the benefits of an integrated laboratory approach to the development and validation of novel antibody biomarkers.
