Mayo Clinic Launches Individualized Medicine Consulting Clinic -

"The Individualized Medicine Clinic began seeing its first patients about six months ago during a startup period and the numbers are growing weekly. In some cases, the clinic has not been able to help the patient due to severity of the illness. In other cases, the clinic provided information to families that may be useful in the future. And in others, the clinic found a genetic alteration or mutation and were able to provide improved therapy. Here are three examples.

*A patient with cholangiocarcinoma, an uncommon cancer of the bile ducts. After failing standard treatments, he was diagnosed and treated at the IM Clinic and now is responding to a novel therapy."
