Mayo Clinic Radio: Measles Virus vs. Cancer

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.

Mayo Clinic Radio: Pancreatic Cancer

Miss the show? Here's the podcast: Mayo Clinic Radio Full Show 11-22-2014 44min mp3

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, Saturday, November 22 at 9 a.m. CT, 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.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, Saturday, October 11 at 9 a.m. CT, we'll discuss Aamyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) with Anthony Windebank, M.D. Often called Lou Gehrig's disease, ALS is a type of progressive motor neuron disease that typically strikes at middle to later life and causes nerve cells in the spinal cord, brainstem and brain to gradually break down and die. These nerve cells are responsible for muscle function, so eventually ALS can affect the ability to control the muscles needed to move, speak, eat and breathe. We hope you'll join us to learn more about this debilitating disease and what's happening with the latest in ALS research.

Myth or Fact:  Football players are at greater risk for ALS.

Researchers are helping to develop strategies to combat ALS.  Read more here.
