Scientists Focus on Enzymes and Proteins to Develop New Treatments

This enzyme, known as orotate phosphoribosyl transferase (OPRT) is believed to curb the development and spread of mesothelioma which would have a huge impact on treatment development. Scientists tested 15 people with malignant pleural mesothelioma and found that the enzyme OPRT was present; 85% of mesothelioma patients had high levels. Scientists then took a group of patients who were unsuccessful in their treatment Pemetrexed, which is the common chemotherapy drug...

The bill, if passed, would focus on the use of cannabis oil as a therapeutic alternative to conventional cancer treatments. Patients could eventually purchase medical...

Unfortunately, our reliance on asbestos came at a huge price. As useful as asbestos could be, it has also been linked with a number of serious health problems such as lung cancer and mesothelioma. Sadly, a great number of those who have now been diagnosed with asbestos exposure related illness were...
