AGING CONDITIONS

Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma Research

Although mesothelioma was recognised in the late 1700’s, its association with asbestos was only linked in the 1960’s. The first cases were documented by J.C.Wagner, describing 32 cases of workers in the "Asbestos Hills" in South Africa. Since then, the relationship between mesothelioma and asbestos exposure has been confirmed in studies around the world.

The incidence of mesothelioma in the United States remains low, with 14 cases occurring per million people per year. A marked increase [300%] in mesothelioma in males between 1970 and 1984, is directly associated with environmental and occupational exposure to asbestos, mostly in areas of asbestos product plants and shipbuilding facilities.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is sponsoring clinical trials designed to find new treatments and better ways to use current treatments. For more information on these trials: Cancer Information Service

People considering clinical trials may be interested in the NCI booklet Taking Part in Clinical Trials: What Cancer Patients Need To Know. This booklet describes how research studies are carried out and explains their possible benefits and risks.

 

Legal Action For Mesothelioma

If you or some one close to you has been diagnosed with Mesothelioma as a result of Asbestos exposure, you may consider legal remedies. If the mesothelioma was caused by the negligence of an employer or organization then you are due compensation. Whilst such action will not cure mesothelioma, it will ensure that the expensive treatment required for mesothelioma does not alter your life nor the life of your loved ones.

Mesothelioma law is basically about being compensated by the makers and distributors of asbestos.The best way to get compensation is by hiring the right lawyer!
