Ohio State University Study Mesothelioma Mechanism

Supported by the National Science Foundation, scientists at Ohio State University are taking the first steps to understand how, at a molecular level, asbestos fibers gradually lead to mesothelioma, a cancer of the lungs.  So far, the scientists have observed the first step in the process, whereby asbestos fibers bind to specific receptor proteins on the surfaces of cells.  Moreover, although so far scientists have only used crocidolite fibers, they hope to study all six of the most common types of asbestos fibers.

Because scientists are in the very preliminary stages of research, medical applications for what little they have so far uncovered will have to wait for many years.  Nonetheless, scientists have high hopes that in the future their findings will help treat mesothelioma and other asbestos-caused diseases.

Victims of mesothelioma today, however, unfortunately do not have access to cures.  If you have been exposed to asbestos and have developed mesothelioma, contact the mesothelioma attorneys Williams Kherkher.  Call at 1-800-220-9341 or send us a message from our website.
