  • A Structured Multidisciplinary Quality of Life Intervention for Patients Receiving Radiation Therapy for Advanced Cancer Treatment & Their Caregivers: A Telemedicine Project Rochester, Minn., Jacksonville, Fla.

    This study will use video technology in conjunction with in-person participation. This is a pilot project, where all enrolled participants will receive the multidisciplinary intervention. Participants (patients and caregivers) from Mayo Clinic Rochester will attend an in-person group session, and participants (patients and caregivers) from Mayo Clinic Florida or Northfield Mayo Clinic Radiation Oncology Center will participate through the use of video conferencing. The goals are to examine feasibility (percent of eligible patients and caregivers who enroll), attrition, and adherence (attend at least four of the six sessions), to determine any differences between the two formats, and to examine potential QOL differences as a result of the intervention.

  • Mayo Clinic Individualized Medicine Biobank for Bipolar Disorder Eau Claire, Wis., Rochester, Minn., Jacksonville, Fla., Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., Austin, Minn.

    The purpose of this biobank is to develop a research resource for bipolar disorder. Patients, and close genetic relatives, will provide samples of blood, complete interviews, complete health questionnaires, and allow access to medical records. Participants will also agree to be followed into the future by linking to medical records, along with occasional follow-up health surveys or collection of additional biologic specimens. The biobank serves as a source for researchers instead of having to look for volunteers for each new project.

  • Microbiome of Depression &Amp; Treatment Response to Citalopram: A Feasibility Study Jacksonville, Fla., Rochester, Minn., Austin, Minn.

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of developing a microbiome probe of depression and to evaluate the microbiome change in a preliminary analysis of treatment response (n=20) vs. non response (n=20) to the antidepressant citalopram. This study is a 12 week open trial that will enroll approximately 80 participants (anticipated 40 study completers with paired biomarker data) with an episode of major depression, Bipolar I or Bipolar II and 40 age- and sex-matched healthy controls.
