Positive Genetic Studies and Treatment for Mesothelioma Patients

Understanding malignant mesothelioma and the way it develops is significant when discovering prevention, development control, and the eventual lead to a cure. Cancer researchers at the Mayo Clinic have been researching the genetic composition of the disease in hopes to find a connection between the development of mesothelioma and mutations in DNA. To find these genetic roots, Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) was applied. In this study, 11 mesothelioma patients were tested (7 with pleural mesothelioma and 4 with peritoneal mesothelioma). Using the NGS method, patient’s DNA was quickly and accurately analyzed to find genetic mutations. Results showed 86% of those with...

Checking for Asbestos in Your New Home

Although asbestos use has been heavily restricted in the United States for decades, homes that were built before 1980 may still contain the material in their floor tiles, insulation, shingles, and drywall. Building materials containing asbestos is not normally dangerous, but they can shed asbestos fibers if they are damaged or disturbed. These microscopic fibers can be inhaled or ingested and lead to serious health problems, including the rare form of cancer known as mesothelioma. The only way to truly know if you have asbestos in your home is to contact an asbestos building tester and have them inspect your home....

Mesothelioma: Separating Facts from Myths

There are many myths and misconceptions about mesothelioma, the rare cancer often associated with asbestos exposure.

The United States government has restricted the use of asbestos in order to prevent diseases like mesothelioma, but misinformation and misconceptions can still be very dangerous. With that being said, here are some of the more common misconceptions about mesothelioma. Myth: Mesothelioma is a Lung Cancer Although mesothelioma appears to affect the lungs most of the time, the...

Exciting New Developments in Research and Technology Regarding Mesothelioma and Lung Cancer

Mesothelioma, a cancer caused by asbestos exposure, is rare, aggressive and fatal.  Researches are discovering more and more about this disease daily, and with that, they are one step closer to finding more effective treatments. In a most recent study, scientists looked into why, after initial treatments, the cancer cells become immune to the chemotherapy, even when different drugs are being used. Some researchers believe that the cancer cells escape into the bloodstream and then form together creating “cancer clusters.”  These “cancer clusters” do not respond to chemotherapy, as no drug is able to permeate. Now that scientists and researchers...
