Researchers at the Asbestos Diseases Research Institute (ADRI) studied hundreds of patients to evaluate the correlation of survival rates and chemotherapy. The results indicated that older mesothelioma patients should receive chemotherapy treatment for higher survival rates. According to The » Read More

MIT Researchers Develop Inhalable Treatment for Pleural Mesothelioma


For patients suffering from mesothelioma, finding a treatment that works is vital. Fortunately, the options for mesothelioma treatment are advancing, including the development of inhalable treatments. Scientists at the Koch Center for Integrative Cancer Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are working toward developing an inhalable treatment to target cancer cells located in » Read More
