No, You Can't Have It All—& That's Okay

We know what you’re thinking — I’m not even 35 yet, why should I be worrying about what’s going to happen when I’m 40, 45….ahem, 50. You’re going to say a pair of forty-something women frustrated with their career trajectories is just normal mid-life angst — nothing new.But is it? Maura, 47, has been an editor at some of the most well-regarded publications in New York, but these days she’s feeling the existential dread of working at a print publication at a time when she's constantly reminded t...

Mayo Clinic researchers develop more efficient system to reprogram stem cells

Induced pluripotent stem cells, the workhorse of many regenerative medicine projects, start out as differentiated cells that are reprogrammed to pluripotent stem cells by exposure to a complex set of genetic cocktails.

Mayo Clinic finds individualized diets are most effective for managing blood sugar levels

An individualized diet based on a person's genetics, microbiome and lifestyle is more effective in controlling blood glucose (sugar) levels than one that considers only nutritional composition of food, Mayo Clinic researchers have confirmed. The research published in the Feb. 8 edition of JAMA Network Open demonstrates that each person's body responds differently to similar foods, due to the unique composition of each person's gut microbiome -- the complex community of trillions of bacteria with...

Mayo Clinic researchers develop prediction tool for kidney stones

Kidney stones are a common and painful condition, with many sufferers experiencing recurrent episodes. Most people who pass an initial stone want to know their chances of future episodes, but this has not always been easy to predict. Now Mayo Clinic researchers are tracking the familiar characteristics of kidney stone formers in an online prediction tool that could help sufferers anticipate if they'll experience future episodes. The study was published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings.

Mother’s lifesaving surgery stopped at last minute because her bank blocked payment for operation

A British mother’s lifesaving neuro-surgery in America had to be cancelled while she was being prepped for the operation – because her bank blocked payment after an automatic fraud alert was generated. Samantha Smith, from Rochdale, flew to Arizona for the £250,000 procedure to rebuild her neck, which has been weakened by Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. The 32-year-old, whose condition means her neck has become too weak to support her skull, was lying in her hospital bed at the Mayo Clinic, in Phoenix...

Cervical cancer screening rates are unacceptably low, finds Mayo Clinic study

The percentage of women who are screened for cervical cancer may be far lower than national data suggests, according to a Mayo Clinic study recently published in the Journal of Women's Health. Less than two-thirds of women ages 30 to 65 were up-to-date with cervical cancer screenings in 2016.

Mayo study uses AI to create inexpensive, widely available early detector of heart disease

A Mayo Clinic study finds that applying artificial intelligence (AI) to a widely available, inexpensive test -- the electrocardiogram (EKG) -- results in a simple, affordable early indicator of asymptomatic left ventricular dysfunction, which is a precursor to heart failure. The research team found that the AI/EKG test accuracy compares favorably with other common screening tests, such as mammography for breast cancer. The findings were published in Nature Medicine.

Obese mice lose anxiety when 'zombie cells' exit their brain

Mayo Clinic researchers and collaborators have shown in mice that obesity increases the level of 'zombie' or senescent cells in the brain, and that those cells, in turn, are linked to anxiety. When senolytic drugs are used to clear those cells, the anxious behaviors in the mice dissipate. These findings appear in Cell Metabolism.

Mayo Clinic discovers biological markers that could guide treatment for prostate cancer

Genetic alterations in low-risk prostate cancer diagnosed by needle biopsy can identify men that harbor higher-risk cancer in their prostate glands, Mayo Clinic has discovered. The research, which is published in the January edition of Mayo Clinic Proceedings, found for the first time that genetic alterations associated with intermediate- and high-risk prostate cancer also may be present in some cases of low-risk prostate cancers.

Linking Directly To Impact

Joel identified the coherence problem. Unless you’re selling memberships or advertising, maximizing engagement is useless. Each additional engagement doesn’t yield an additional dollar (or cent). Worse, it can decrease valuable activity as key contributions and members are lost in the clutter and overwhelm. Forget commitment curves, engagement ladders, and the like. Only a tiny fraction of members will ever progress through them anyway. Instead, focus on a simple strategic plan. The Mayo Clinic’...

Three Types of Community Work

We’re usually invited to work on one of three types of community projects: 1) “We have a success and want to make it better”. This is usually when someone wants to overcome a specific challenge, develop a longer-term roadmap, or improve a particular area. 2) “We’re about to launch a community and want to get it right”. This is self-explanatory. Someone needs help to launch the community. 3) “We’ve screwed it up and need help”. Engagement is plummeting, people aren’t participating, and the commun...

Amid Lawsuits, Experts Caution More Research Into IUDs Causing Neurological Disorder

Hundreds of women — at present, 856 and counting — have filed lawsuits against German drug company Bayer over the last two years, claiming that the popular IUD Mirena is causing severe neurological side effects. Experts who have been following the case, however, say that more research is needed before a connection can be made between the contraceptive and the disorder.Mirena is a tiny piece of T-shaped plastic that is inserted directly into the uterus as a way to prevent pregnancy. The FDA appr...

Well, This Is Annoying

This is a PITA, but I'm still sick. I have the pestilence. No, the "stomach flu." I had to put off travel plans (picture being stuck in traffic on the freeway when you have the trots—that isn't a happy picture). My doctor's next open appointment is in April of 2020. Just joking. Anyway I'm a mess. Tired, can't stay hydrated, can't get warm.

Mayo researchers say oral apixaban safe and effective for treating blood clots in cancer patients

Mayo Clinic researchers have found that an oral drug, apixaban, used to treat blood clots in patients undergoing cancer therapy, is safe and effective. The drug was associated with fewer major bleeding events and fewer recurrent blood clots, compared to low-molecular- weight heparin. Their findings were presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology by Robert McBane II M.D., a Mayo Clinic cardiologist.
