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.

Myth or Matter of Fact: I have a history of medical illness. I would not be a suitable donor.

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.

Myth or Fact: There is a pancreatic cancer screening test available.

Mayo Clinic Radio: Lung Cancer Screening

If you missed the program when it aired, you will find a podcast here.  November 15 2014.

For more information about lung cancer screening call 507-538-0340

Finding lung cancer sooner rather than later can obviously make a big difference in the outcome, and using a CT scan to find the cancer may be the best option.  On the most recent Mayo Clinic Radio our guest was pulmonologist, David Midthun, M.D.  We discussed why lung cancer is so deadly and talk about the importance of diagnosing it early.  We also  talked to a patient who had her lung cancer diagnosed with a CT scan.  November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. Hope you'll join us.

Myth or Fact: One in 10 people newly diagnosed with lung cancer have never smoked.
