Are New Treatments For Mesothelioma Being Studied?

by admin on January 30, 2009

Yes. Because mesothelioma is very hard to control, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) is sponsoring clinical trials (research studies with people) that are designed to find new treatments and better ways to use current treatments. Before any new treatment can be recommended for general use, doctors conduct clinical trials to find out whether the treatment is safe for patients and effective against the disease. Participation in clinical trials is an important treatment option for many patients with mesothelioma. mesothelioma treatment information is at  http://mesothelioma-asbestos-cancer.org/
