Lung Cancer Trial Targets Asbestos-Related Diseases Such as Pleural Mesothelioma

New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University Medical Center are currently recruiting patients for a clinical trial of a new targeted radiation and chemotherapy protocol for pleural mesothelioma, reported HealthDay News on July 21, 2008.

The article points out that the current standard treatment is to remove the affected lung.

The study will investigate whether a combination of chemotherapy and radiation targeted directly at the lung's lining can improve outcomes while avoiding surgery.

According to a hospital press release, patients aged 18 and older who have not had recent radiation therapy or chemotherapy and have not received prior Alimta chemotherapy will be considered for the study.

Sadly, many patients who now contend with asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis, could have avoided their illness if certain employers and the makers of asbestos containing products had been more honest about how dangers asbestos is to a person's health.

This situation, where exposure to asbestos was easily preventable, is all too familiar to the mesothelioma attorneys in the Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. Asbestos Litigation unit.

We are a leading plaintiffs' law firm that has represented people affected by mesothelioma for over 20 years.

Men and women diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure may be entitled to compensation from the companies responsible for their disease.
