Mayo Clinic Radio: Liver Transplants

Miss the show? Here's the podcast! Mayo Clinic Radio Full Show 12-6-14 44min mp3

On Saturday, December 6, at 9 a.m. CT, Julie Heimbach, M.D., and Charles Rosen, M.D., will join us to talk about dramatic changes happening in the world of liver transplants. For instance, it wasn’t long ago that patients with hepatitis B, hepatitis C or a certain type of tumor would not have been eligible for a liver transplant. That's no longer true.  We’ll also discuss a fairly novel approach to patients with obesity-related liver disease, which is to combine liver transplant with bariatric surgery. Obesity is one of the fastest growing reasons for needing a liver transplant. We hope you’ll join us.

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.
