Whooping cough - Mayo Clinic

Whooping cough. It's a bacterial infection that's risen to epidemic levels in some parts of the U.S. In adults, the symptoms can be mild, but if the infection is spread to a baby who hasn't yet received a full course of vaccinations, whooping cough can be very serious. Here's more on how to handle this disease.

 HIV Cure Research

Although antiretroviral therapy has dramatically extended the life of HIV infected individuals, the life-long daily regimen of pills is not a cure. The drugs' side effects lead to various complications such as increased incidence of heart disease and cancer that significantly reduces lifespans. Based on this reality, the recent isolated reports of individuals being cured of HIV infection have brought a lot of excitement as well as cautiousness. Brief presentations by a distinguished lineup of clinicians, researchers and advocates, many of whom have dedicated their life's work toward finding a cure for HIV infection, address where we are with a cure for HIV.

Improving Muscle Health


Nathan K. LeBrasseur, M.S., Ph.D., Associate Professor and Co-Chair of Research in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, discusses age- and disease-associated muscle loss. Most of us will lose 30-percent of our muscle mass between our 40’s and 80’s and that has severe implications for our physical function, susceptibility to diabetes, and resiliency to multiple forms of stress. Improving muscle health is important. In addition to exercise, he is also researching the muscle-derived protein myostatin. It is a negative regulator of muscle mass. If its activity is not regulated it can actually cause deterioration and wasting of skeletal muscle.

Called the Mitraclip, a small device is inched up to the heart through a catheter inserted through a vein in the groin. Once the clip is in place, it literally catches the loose leaflets and minimizes the leak (picture pinching your lips shut with your fingers). It's done under general anesthetic, so patients are literally home the next day.
