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...

There was a time when it could be found in textiles, drywall, clothing, gaskets, insulation, cement, pumps, brakes, machinery and other building materials. That changed years ago when it was discovered that asbestos exposure could be linked to serious health conditions such as asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma. Even though asbestos isn’t as prominent as it once was, asbestos-related illnesses still affect thousands of Americans every year. What is Asbestos? Asbestos is a group of naturally-occurring fibrous minerals. The minerals have thin, microscopic...
