Treatments for Mesothelioma

Categories :Uncategorized

Unfortunately in years past, treatment for mesothelioma has been largely palliative rather than curative. This is many times a product of the latency of the disease. It can take anywhere from 20 to 50 years for signs of mesothelioma to show and most times the disease is too far along to combat it.

Hospitals, universities, and pharmaceutical companies are now pushing for increased research on asbestos and asbestos- related diseases, allowing them to enhance treatment options.

A company named Alfacell is making progress towards new treatments. They have a product called Oncanase, which serves to work in a similar fashion as RNA Interference. It is a therapeutic medication that has derived from a leopard frog and has already killed cancer cells while keeping healthy cells safe at the same time.
