    Variants, Virulence, and Vaccines, Oh My!

    Variants, Virulence, and Vaccines, Oh My!

    Guest: Elitza S. Theel, Ph.D. (@ElliTheelPhD)


    Host: Amit K. Ghosh, M.D. (@AmitGhosh006)


    Dr. Elitza Theel, Professor of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology and Director of Infectious Diseases Serology Laboratory at Mayo Clinic’s Rochester Campus, discusses our immune response to vaccination and natural infection and outlines the different types of antibody assays currently available. Dr. Theel also discusses the concept of herd immunity in the context of different circulating SARS-CoV-2 variants and the increased need to get higher rates of vaccination in the community as the infectivity and transmissibility of circulating SARS-CoV-2 variants changes. We also discuss the status of correlates of protective immunity against SARS-CoV-2 and the need for booster vaccine doses for immunocompromised individuals.

    Evaluating Hematuria

    Evaluating Hematuria

    Guest: Aaron M. Potretzke, M.D. (@potretzke)


    Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. (@ChutkaMD)


    Microscopic hematuria, and less commonly gross hematuria, are conditions commonly seen by the primary care provider. Malignancy is the most ominous cause of hematuria. Fortunately, other causes are much more likely. Since this is a relatively common health condition, when should we investigate hematuria and what should the evaluation consist of? How do we evaluate a patient’s risk for urinary tract malignancy? Dr. Aaron Potretzke, a urologist at Mayo Clinic joins us to discuss these questions.


    Specific topics:


    Definition of hematuria

    Benign causes of hematuria

    Risk of malignancy in low, medium, and high-risk patients

    Stratifying malignancy risk in patients for genitourinary malignancy

    Recommended evaluation for patients with hematuria

    How to manage patients with persistent hematuria despite a negative evaluation

    Role of urine cytology in the evaluation of hematuria

    Exercise is First-Line Treatment for Your Parkinson's Patients

    Exercise is First-Line Treatment for Your Parkinson's Patients

    Guest: Edward R. Laskowski, M.D. (@DrEdSportsMed)


    Host: Sanjeev (Sanj) Kakar, M.D. (@sanjkakar)


    Daily exercise has so many health and emotional benefits – it can help decrease your blood pressure, promote cardiovascular wellbeing, alleviate stress, and assist with weight loss and blood sugar control. Parkinson’s disease is a condition that affects the central nervous system, and in particular the brain, that can lead to shakiness, poor balance, and frequent falls. Joining us in this episode is Edward Laskowski, M.D., a professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation and sports medicine specialist at Mayo Clinic’s Rochester Campus, to discuss why exercise is first-line treatment for your Parkinson’s patients.

    Parkinson's Disease - It's More Than Just a Tremor

    Parkinson's Disease - It's More Than Just a Tremor

    Guest: Jeremy K. Cutsforth-Gregory, M.D. (@JCGneuro)


    Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. (@ChutkaMD)


    Parkinson’s Disease is one of the more common neurodegenerative diseases, in fact, patients with Parkinson’s outnumber those with multiple sclerosis, ALS, and muscular dystrophy combined. It tends to affect older patients, although on rare occasions it can be seen in those under the age of 50. It can have a devastating effect on an individual’s lifestyle as the physical symptoms of the disease tend to gradually progress over years. This podcast will feature Dr. Jeremy Cutsforth-Gregory, a neurologist at the Mayo Clinic, as we discuss the evaluation and management of Parkinson’s Disease.


    Specific topics:


    Pathophysiology of Parkinson’s Disease

    Common presenting symptoms of Parkinson’s

    Assessing patients with tremor

    Complications of advanced Parkinson’s

    Pharmacologic management of Parkinson’s
