2015-347 – Mayo Clinic has developed compositions and methods for detecting soluble PD-L1
2013-237 – Bim is a biomarker for PD-1 and PD-L1 therapies.
2013-273 – Background: Aerobic fitness is one of the best predictors of all-cause mortality but not easily assessed on a large scale accurately. Technology Description: A web based health fitness assessment tool which may be carried out at any location and requires nothing more than a device camera, web portal, a step, and a chair. Using technology based light reflection and color spectrum, heart... Read More
2012-144 – The knock-in mouse model mimics an incompletely penetrant genetic mutation found in patients with atypical autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). The model was established to investigate the pathogenic mechanism of this particular mutation (PKD1 R3277C). As in patients, mice carrying the mutation together with a PKD1 truncating change develop severe, early onset disease,... Read More
2012-073 – Erectile dysfunction (ED) is estimated to affect 20-30% of men between the ages of 40-80 years. In cases of medication-resistant ED, surgical treatment, and especially penile prosthesis implantation is the standard of care. Complications of surgery can include neurovascular and urethral injury, and other tissue damage that can contribute to sub-optimal outcomes. A Mayo Clinic investigator... Read More
2011-271 – We identified a novel translocation of TP63 gene which encodes p63 protein. The translocation leads to overexpression of a dominant negative TP63 isoform. Dominant negative TP63 isoforms lead to inactivation of p53, the most important tumor suppressor known. The translocation can be useful for diagnosis and subclassification of certain peripheral T cell lymphomas, B-cell lymphomas... Read More
2003-150 – A mouse lacking both copies of the IEX-1 gene was generated. These mice have a mean arterial blood pressure that is approximately 30mm of Hg higher than that seen in wild type mice. These mice are useful for assessing compounds for the ability to reduce high blood pressure.
