Liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) has evolved into a vital technology used to perform routine tests in many clinical laboratories. With advances in technology, more clinical laboratories have implemented LC-MS/MS as viable clinical analyzers. Paul Jannetto, Ph.D., Consultant in the Clinical Biochemistry Laboratory at Mayo Clinic, authored an article in Clinical Laboratory News​ on the advantages and clinical applications of LC-MS/MS. http://mayocl.in/1M1tojo

It’s almost a crime the outside world doesn’t know about the human clinical trials occurring at Mayo Clinic’s Human Cell Therapy Laboratory in Rochester. Of the eleven (phase I) trials currently underway or just finishing, many are demonstrating promising results in treating chronic wounds, renal stenosis, and fatal neurological diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and multiple-system atrophy. http://mayocl.in/1SGnp1V

#Lyme disease is a tick-borne illness that is endemic in certain areas of the United States, including the Northeast and Upper Midwest. In several situations, laboratory testing is not recommended. However, laboratory diagnosis of Lyme disease is most commonly achieved by serologic testing, which should be limited to those persons with an appropriate exposure history and objective clinical findings. When serology is ordered, testing should be performed using the two-step approach as recommended by the CDC. #UtilizationSpotlight http://mayocl.in/1RC4l9S

Jaundice is a very common condition in newborn infants that is most often benign. However, acute and chronic bilirubin encephalopathy (acute or chronic neurologic damage resulting from high serum bilirubin levels) does still occur. Mayo Clinic used a screening algorithm to determine how to best use and interpret TcB values from healthy newborns. http://mayocl.in/1KFBA5r

During #summer activities, it’s bound to happen. But how dangerous is it to accidentally swallow a bug? Bobbi Pritt, M.D., a microbiologist, #pathologist, and Director of the Clinical Parasitology Laboratory at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, discusses when swallowing an insect is harmless and which ones can be dangerous in The Wall Street Journal​ column entitled, “Burning Question.” http://mayocl.in/1fHmoKq

Diadexus, Inc., a diagnostics company developing and commercializing products that aid in the prediction of cardiac disease risk, and Mayo Clinic recently signed an agreement to collaborate in the areas of education, research, and innovation on the PLAC® Test for Lp‑PLA2 Activity. The test, which has been cleared by the #FDA, is used to help identify risk for coronary heart disease in patients with no history of #cardiovascular events. http://mayocl.in/1HV0j4G

In support of our Mayo Clinic colleagues and Mayo Medical Laboratories clients, we are proud to announce a group of 118 of the nation’s leading cancer experts have drafted a prescription for reducing the high cost of ‪#‎cancer‬ drugs and voiced support for a patient-based grassroots movement demanding action on the issue. Their recommendations and support are outlined in a commentary, co-authored by the group, in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings. http://mayocl.in/1MMCuxh

With the introduction of matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS), laboratories can rapidly identify a wide range of bacteria, including those that pose a risk if incorrectly handled. Mayo Clinic researchers conducted a study published in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology to determine the most practical solution to work with potentially hazardous bacteria in the era of MALDI-TOF MS. http://mayocl.in/1CSxdUx

Diagnosis of idiopathic duct-centric chronic pancreatitis (IDCP), also known as type 2 autoimmune pancreatitis, requires pancreatic histology and/or concurrent inflammable bowel disease. In a recent study published in the journal Gut​, Mayo Clinic researchers examined past experience with IDCP to assess the appropriateness of this criteria, and identify unique characteristics in patients presenting with acute pancreatitis. http://mayocl.in/1faCbkB
