Mayo Clinic Radio: Measles Virus vs. Cancer

By McCray

On Saturday, November 29, at 9 a.m. CT, we’ll rebroadcast a conversation with two of our favorite guests this year - Stacy Erholtz and  Stephen Russell, M.D..  Stacy's been involved in groundbreaking research at Mayo Clinic led by Dr. Russell, which uses the measles virus to fight cancer. Stacy shares her story about receiving 10 million doses – a seemingly lethal amount – of the measles virus to treat her multiple myeloma. It's called oncolytic virotherapy, and Dr. Russell discusses the science behind virus therapy. He talks about where future research might be headed, are there other diseases that could be cured by using viruses and where did all those doses of measles vaccine come from?  Join us.

Pancreatic Cancer: Mayo Clinic Radio

By Joel Streed

Many of us might not really know where our pancreas is located or what it does, but one thing we DO know is that a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer has a poor prognosis, even when discovered early.  Pancreatic cancer typically spreads rapidly and is seldom detected in its early stages, which is a major reason why it's a leading cause of cancer death.  On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, we'll be joined by KMarie Reid Lombardo, M.D., and Gloria Petersen, Ph.D., to discuss signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer, how it is diagnosed and what the future holds in research.

Here's the podcast: Mayo Clinic Radio Full Show 11-22-2014
