A new study on malignant pleural mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos, identified three sets of tumors with different molecular structure characteristics. Lung X-Rays According to a study by a World Health Organisation (WHO), these molecular profiles could shed light on the clinical management and treatment strategies for mesothelioma and thus improve the understanding of the carcinogenic processes that contribute to this deadly disease. According to Matthieu Foll, the lead author of the study and a scientist at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in the field of genetic susceptibility to cancer, “innovative … Continue reading Great Breakthrough in Understanding Mesothelioma a Cancer Caused by Exposure to Asbestos
