Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with rhabdoid differentiation is thought to portend a poor prognosis, similar to RCC with sarcomatoid differentiation. Mayo Clinic researchers reviewed a large series of patients with grade 4 RCC to determine the differential effects of rhabdoid and sarcomatoid differentiation on patient outcome.

Measurement of sex steroids, particularly testosterone and estradiol, is important for diagnosis or management of a host of conditions. Mayo Clinic researchers summarize why and how liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) is increasingly replacing other methodologies for measurement of testosterone and estradiol.
