Asbestos Research in Greece

The residents of Metsovo, Greece unknowingly exposed themselves to high concentrations of asbestos by using their asbestos rich soil to whitewash their houses. This exposure spurred an outbreak of mesothelioma as well as pleural calcifications around the lungs. Upon learning the dangers, the soil was phased out and mesothelioma is on a downward trend. However, there have been some studies into this particular case.

It was found that people who developed pleural calcifications were less likely to develop mesothelioma. In studying the difference between people with and without pleural calcifications, researchers found that people without the calcifications had an excess of proteins linked to the cell cycle and death. Using this new information, researchers may be able to find a better way to treat mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma is a terrible disease. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, asbestos exposure may be to blame. Contact the mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-220-9341.
