Study: individuals with peritoneal mesothelioma more likely survive if BAP1 gene is inactive

A recent study revealed that survival rate for patients with a peritoneal mesothelioma is likely to increase if the BAP1 gene has been inactive, an article of Mesothelioma Research News reported on January 10.

Researchers examined the medical records and biological samples of 46 individuals with malignant peritoneal mesothelioma and found out that patients with inactive BAP1 mutations or those who have lost their BAP1 gene have a considerably increased survival rate. There had been previous medical literature that associates BAP1 mutations to high cancer rate. Researchers stated that they consider that complete BAP1 loss could be determined by BAP1 protein nuclear expression. Reports also said that information about peritoneal cancer is scarce. The study was released in the Journal Thoracic Oncology.

Peritoneal mesothelioma is a kind of cancer that affects the abdominal and pelvic cavities that could be a result of asbestos exposure.
