Mesothelioma is a terrible form of cancer that is generally contracted through long term exposure to asbestos. Because the latency period for mesothelioma is so long, it can be difficult to diagnose, and therefore difficult to treat in time. Because of this, there has been a great deal of research into mesothelioma treatments.
Alfacell has recently made some significant findings in this field. They now have a product called Oncanase. Derived from the leopard frog, it has been proven to kill cancerous cells while leaving healthy cells alone. There has also been a significant finding from researchers at the National Centre for Asbestos Related Diseases at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. The skin cream, Aldara, is injected into the mesothelioma tumor along with a stimulant called anti-CD40. These treatments may have success in the future.
Mesothelioma is being researched all around the world. Some day there may be a cure instead of just palliative treatments. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, contact the mesothelioma lawyers of Williams Kherkher at 800-220-9341.
