Scientists seek new treatment for mesothelioma

Scientists from Adelaide, Australia are seeking a new way to treat mesothelioma, an often devastating cancer commonly caused by exposure to asbestos fibers.

The scientists, headed by Flinders University Associate Professor Sonja Klebe, have been working diligently to develop a new treatment aimed at reducing, if not eliminating, the source of mesothelioma tumor growth. The sense of urgency is triggered by the high rate of reported asbestos-related illnesses in the home renovation industry.

Professor Klebe said that taking on a different approach by using experimental drugs and gene therapy on animals has resulted in a positive outcome as shown by the increasing survival rate of animals undergoing treatment.

With the high amount of airborne asbestos in surroundings and the fact that mesothelioma takes some time to develop, scientists predict asbestos-related diseases will rise considerably in the coming years. In less than ten years, it will most likely be diagnosed in adults who, as children, were exposed to airborne asbestos fibers during a home renovation and even whole families of home renovators, in which a person exposed to the toxic fibers washed off traces of asbestos from their work clothes.

Sadly, many people are diagnosed annually with mesothelioma because of negligent exposure. If you or someone you know has been exposed to asbestos fibers for a long period and has developed mesothelioma as a result, a lawyer may be able to help you obtain compensation. Call 800-781-3955 today.
