Mayo Clinic Radio: Measles Virus vs. Cancer

By McCray

Miss the show? Here is the podcast: Mayo Clinic Radio Full Show 7-12-2014 

On Saturday, July 12, at 9 a.m. CT, we’ll talk about the groundbreaking research involving the measles virus to fight cancer. The process is called oncolytic virotherapy and Dr. Stephen Russell will be our guest, along with his patient Stacy Erholtz who received 10 million doses – a seemingly lethal amount – of the measles virus to treat her multiple myeloma.

The Wall Street Journal article on health trackers is found here.

This Saturday we’ll hear more about Stacy’s amazing story, discuss with Dr. Russell the science behind virus therapy and learn where future research might be headed.  Are there other diseases that could be cured by using viruses?  Where did all those doses of measles vaccine come from?  It’s a remarkable development in the future of medicine.  Join us.

Mayo Clinic Radio: Advance Directives

By McCray

Miss the show? Here is the podcast! Mayo Clinic Radio Full Show 6-21-2014
On the next program, Saturday, June 21,  9 a.m. CDT, we'll tackle one of the most confusing topics in health care conversations today — advance directives.  Our expert guests Timothy Moynihan, M.D., and Sheryl Ness, R.N., will address questions like ... what IS an advance directive? Isn't it the same thing as a living will? What should be included in the document and who should you choose to make these decisions for you?  Where should an advance directive be kept and how often should it be updated?
We'll find out the answers to these questions and more on the next Mayo Clinic Radio.
Myth or Matter of Fact:  An advance directive means do not treat.
