The European mesothelioma epidemic. (1/1637)

Projections for the period 1995-2029 suggest that the number of men dying from mesothelioma in Western Europe each year will almost double over the next 20 years, from 5000 in 1998 to about 9000 around 2018, and then decline, with a total of about a quarter of a million deaths over the next 35 years. The highest risk will be suffered by men born around 1945-50, of whom about 1 in 150 will die of mesothelioma. Asbestos use in Western Europe remained high until 1980, and substantial quantities are still used in several European countries. These projections are based on the fit of a simple age and birth cohort model to male pleural cancer mortality from 1970 to 1989 for six countries (Britain, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands and Switzerland) which together account for three-quarters of the population of Western Europe. The model was tested by comparing observed and predicted numbers of deaths for the period 1990-94. The ratio of mesothelioma to recorded pleural cancer mortality has been 1.6:1 in Britain but was assumed to be 1:1 in other countries.  (+info)

An expert system for the evaluation of historical asbestos exposure as diagnostic criterion in asbestos-related diseases. (2/1637)

Compensation schemes for asbestos-related diseases have developed different strategies for attributing a specific disease to occupational exposure to asbestos in the past. In the absence of quantitative exposure information that allows a valid estimate of an individual's historical exposure, general guidelines are required to retrospectively evaluate asbestos exposure. A risk matrix has been developed that contains qualitative information on the proportion of workers exposed and the level of exposure in particular industries over time. Based on this risk matrix, stepwise decision trees were formulated for decisions regarding the decisive role of historical asbestos exposure in case ascertainment of asbestosis and mesothelioma. Application of decision schemes will serve to speed up the process of verifying compensation claims and also contribute to a uniform decision-making process in legal procedures.  (+info)

A historical cohort mortality study of workers exposed to asbestos in a refitting shipyard. (3/1637)

To investigate the risks of developing asbestos-related diseases we conducted a historical cohort mortality study on 249 ship repair workers (90 laggers and 159 boiler repairers) in a single U.S. Navy shipyard in Japan. We successfully identified the vital status of 87 (96.7%) laggers and 150 (94.3%) boiler repairers, and, of these, 49 (56.3%) and 65 (43.3%) died, respectively, during the follow-up period from 1947 till the end of 1996. Our in-person interviews with some of the subjects clarified that asbestos exposure was considered to be substantially high in the 1950-60s, decreased thereafter gradually but remained till 1979 in the shipyard. The laggers, who had handled asbestos materials directly, showed a significantly elevated SMR of 2.75 (95% C.I.: 1.08-6.48) for lung cancer. The risk developing the disease was greater in the laggers after a 20-year latency (SMR = 3.42). Pancreatic cancer yielded a greater SMR than unity (7.78, 90% C.I.: 2.07-25.19) in a longer working years group. Four laggers died from asbestosis. The boiler repairers, who had many chances for secondary exposure to asbestos and a few for direct exposure, showed no elevation of the SMR of lung cancer overall, but there was a borderline statistically significant SMR of 2.41 (90% C.I.: 1.05-5.45) in a longer working years group. One boiler repairer died from mesothelioma and four from asbestosis.  (+info)

Morphological variations in transplanted tumors developed by inoculation of spontaneous mesothelioma cell lines derived from F344 rats. (4/1637)

Morphological and immunohistochemical features of the abdominal mesotheliomas that were developed by inoculation of 3 cell lines (MeET-4, -5 and -6) established from spontaneous abdominal mesotheliomas in male F344 rats. Although the original tumors of three cell lines showed signs of epithelioid growth with a predominantly simple papillary pattern, transplanted tumors revealed a variety of morphologic features including epithelioid with glandular structures, sarcomatous, and a mixture of these components. All tumor cells of transplanted tumors were positive for alpha-smooth muscle actin (ASMA) but almost negative for desmin as were epithelioid cells of the original tumors, and the cell lines were positive for desmin but not for ASMA. These results suggested that mesothelioma in the F344 rat had the potential for wide spectrum differentiation under in vitro conditions. The microenvironmental factors obtained in vivo can modify their potential ability and their morphological aspects. These factors may be related to tumor cell reexpression of ASMA of tumor cells that were masked under in vitro culture conditions.  (+info)

T-cell receptor transgenic analysis of tumor-specific CD8 and CD4 responses in the eradication of solid tumors. (5/1637)

The role of tumor-specific CD8 and CD4 lymphocytes in rejecting solid tumors has been difficult to determine because of the lack of models in which tumor antigen, specific CD8 cells, and specific CD4 cells can be monitored and controlled. To investigate the minimal components required for the induction and maintenance of CTL activity sufficient to reject a solid tumor in vivo, we transfected the influenza hemagglutinin (HA) gene into a nonimmunogenic class I+/class II- murine malignant mesothelioma (MM) tumor line to generate an endogenous tumor antigen and used TCR transgenic mice with class I- or class II-restricted specificities for HA as sources of naive, tumor-specific T cells. The data show that the presence of a strong tumor antigen is not in itself sufficient to induce an effective CTL response, nor does the presence of a high frequency of precursor cells guarantee tumor rejection. We also show that tumor-specific CD4 cells, when CTL numbers are suboptimal, greatly enhance the eradication of tumor, confirming the importance of antigen-presenting cell presentation of tumor antigens to class II-restricted cells. These data confirm that T-cell receptor transgenic cells, combined with nominal tumor antigen transfection, represent powerful tools to analyze tumor-specific T-cell responses.  (+info)

Photodynamic therapy with mTHPC and polyethylene glycol-derived mTHPC: a comparative study on human tumour xenografts. (6/1637)

The photosensitizing properties of m-tetrahydroxyphenylchlorin (mTHPC) and polyethylene glycol-derivatized mTHPC (pegylated mTHPC) were compared in nude mice bearing human malignant mesothelioma, squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma xenografts. Laser light (20 J/cm2) at 652 nm was delivered to the tumour (surface irradiance) and to an equal-sized area of the hind leg of the animals after i.p. administration of 0.1 mg/kg body weight mTHPC and an equimolar dose of pegylated mTHPC, respectively. The extent of tumour necrosis and normal tissue injury was assessed by histology. Both mTHPC and pegylated mTHPC catalyse photosensitized necrosis in mesothelioma xenografts at drug-light intervals of 1-4 days. The onset of action of pegylated mTHPC seemed slower but significantly exceeds that of mTHPC by days 3 and 4 with the greatest difference being noted at day 4. Pegylated mTHPC also induced significantly larger photonecrosis than mTHPC in squamous cell xenografts but not in adenocarcinoma at day 4, where mTHPC showed greatest activity. The degree of necrosis induced by pegylated mTHPC was the same for all three xenografts. mTHPC led to necrosis of skin and underlying muscle at a drug-light interval of 1 day but minor histological changes only at drug-light intervals from 2-4 days. In contrast, pegylated mTHPC did not result in histologically detectable changes in normal tissues under the same treatment conditions at any drug-light interval assessed. In this study, pegylated mTHPC had advantages as a photosensitizer compared to mTHPC. Tissue concentrations of mTHPC and pegylated mTHPC were measured by high-performance liquid chromatography in non-irradiated animals 4 days after administration. There was no significant difference in tumour uptake between the two sensitizers in mesothelioma, adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma xenografts. Tissue concentration measurements were of limited use for predicting photosensitization in this model.  (+info)

Multicentre randomised controlled trial of nursing intervention for breathlessness in patients with lung cancer. (7/1637)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of nursing intervention for breathlessness in patients with lung cancer. DESIGN: Patients diagnosed with lung cancer participated in a multicentre randomised controlled trial where they either attended a nursing clinic offering intervention for their breathlessness or received best supportive care. The intervention consisted of a range of strategies combining breathing control, activity pacing, relaxation techniques, and psychosocial support. Best supportive care involved receiving standard management and treatment available for breathlessness, and breathing assessments. Participants completed a range of self assessment questionnaires at baseline, 4 weeks, and 8 weeks. SETTING: Nursing clinics within 6 hospital settings in the United Kingdom. PARTICIPANTS: 119 patients diagnosed with small cell or non-small cell lung cancer or with mesothelioma who had completed first line treatment for their disease and reported breathlessness. OUTCOME MEASURES: Visual analogue scales measuring distress due to breathlessness, breathlessness at best and worst, WHO performance status scale, hospital anxiety and depression scale, and Rotterdam symptom checklist. RESULTS: The intervention group improved significantly at 8 weeks in 5 of the 11 items assessed: breathlessness at best, WHO performance status, levels of depression, and two Rotterdam symptom checklist measures (physical symptom distress and breathlessness) and showed slight improvement in 3 of the remaining 6 items. CONCLUSION: Most patients who completed the study had a poor prognosis, and breathlessness was typically a symptom of their deteriorating condition. Patients who attended nursing clinics and received the breathlessness intervention experienced improvements in breathlessness, performance status, and physical and emotional states relative to control patients.  (+info)

Telomerase activity in human pleural mesothelioma. (8/1637)

BACKGROUND: Gradual telomere erosion eventually limits the replicative life span of somatic cells and is regarded as an ultimate tumour suppressor mechanism, eliminating cells that have accumulated genetic alterations. Telomerase, which has been found in over 85% of human cancers, elongates telomeres and may be required for tumorigenesis by the process of immortalisation. Malignant mesothelioma is an incurable malignancy with a poor prognosis. The disease becomes symptomatic decades after exposure to carcinogenic asbestos fibres, suggesting the long term survival of pre-malignant cell clones. This study investigated the presence of telomerase in pleural malignant mesothelioma, which may be the target for future anti-telomerase drugs. METHODS: Telomerase activity was semiquantitatively measured in extracts from 22 primary pleural mesotheliomas, two benign solitary fibrous tumours of the pleura, four mesothelioma cell lines, and six short term mesothelial cell cultures from normal pleura using a non-isotopic dilution assay of the telomeric repeat amplification protocol. RESULTS: Twenty of the 22 primary mesotheliomas (91%) and all tumour derived mesothelioma cell lines were telomerase positive. Different levels of enzyme activity were observed in the tumours of different histological subtypes. Telomerase activity could not be detected in the six normal mesothelial cell cultures or in the two mesotheliomas. Both benign solitary fibrous tumours showed strong telomerase activity. CONCLUSIONS: Telomerase activity is found in a high proportion of mesotheliomas and anti-telomerase drugs might therefore be useful clinically. The results are consistent with the hypothesis that telomerase activity may be a feature of carcinogenesis in mesotheliomas and possibly in many other cancers.  (+info)

Treatment of Malignant mesothelioma is a rare cancer that occurs in the thin layer of tissue that covers the majority of your internal organs. Doctors divide mesothelioma into different categories based on what part of the mesothelium is affected by cancer. Mesothelioma that occurs in the tissue that surrounds the lung is called pleural mesothelioma and is the most common form. Mesothelioma that occurs in the tissue in your abdomen is called peritoneal mesothelioma and accounts for 10 percent to 20 percent of all mesotheliomas. In rare cases, mesothelioma can also occur in the lining around the heart, and in the lining around the testicles, Between 2,000 and 3,000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma in the United States each year. Men are more likely to develop mesothelioma than are women. Its more common in older adults - most people with mesothelioma are 65 and older - though mesothelioma can be diagnosed at any age, Mesothelioma is closely linked to exposure to asbestos - a natural fiber that was

AU - Strizzi, L.. AU - Procopio, A.. PY - 2001. Y1 - 2001. N2 - Methionine aminopeptidase-2 (MetAP2) is the molecular target of the angiogenesis inhibitors, fumagillin and ovalacin. Fumagillin can also inhibit cancer cell proliferation, implying that MetAP2 may play a quite complex role in tumor progression. Here, we examined the expression and function of MetAP2 in an in vitro model of human mesothelioma. We found that mesothelioma cells expressed higher MetAP2 mRNA levels than primary normal mesothelial cells. Consistently, fumagillin induced apoptosis, owing to early mitochondrial damage, in malignant, but not in normal mesothelial cells. Transfection of mesothelioma cells with a MetAP2 anti-sense oligonucleotide determined a time-dependent inhibition of cell survival and induced nucleosome ...
A virus that causes leukemia in gibbon apes may have the power to help fight malignant mesothelioma in people.. Gibbon ape leukemia virus (GALV) has been tested for years as a viral vector, a carrier of therapeutic genetic information, in the treatment of various human illnesses, including cancer. A new study in Japan compared GALV with a leukemia virus derived from mice to see which carrier communicated most efficiently with mesothelioma cells. While both types of viruses replicated in most of the mesothelioma cell lines tested, the mouse-derived virus was not effective in a mesothelioma cell line called ACC-MESO-1. In this cell line, only the GALV spread efficiently both in culture and in mice that had been given human mesothelioma xenografts. GALV carrying a prodrug activator gene (which triggers expression of a suicide gene in infected cells) efficiently killed ACC-MESO-1 mesothelioma cells. The result was significant inhibition of mesothelioma tumor growth in the mice. Further testing ...

Context: Diffuse malignant mesothelioma is generally divided into 3 basic histologic types-epithelial, biphasic, or sarcomatous. However, a great diversity of histologic patterns exists within these 3 basic histologic types.. Design: The diverse histologic patterns of diffuse malignant mesothelioma are briefly described, including infrequently encountered patterns.. Results: The histologic patterns of diffuse malignant mesothelioma provide a wide variation of features for the pathologist to consider in the differential diagnosis of a pleural biopsy.. Conclusion: Pathologists should be aware of the varied histologic patterns of diffuse malignant mesothelioma when evaluating pleural biopsies.. ...
The imaging method called positron emission tomography (PET) using the radioactive tracer molecule 18F-FDG is a valuable way to both diagnose and track the progression of malignant peritoneal mesothelioma. Nuclear medicine researchers at a Hospital in Barcelona, Spain reviewed the diagnostic and treatment records of 60 people with malignant peritoneal mesothelioma, a form of mesothelioma that spreads on the membrane lining the walls of the abdomen. The study subjects included 34 women and 26 men with a mean age of 53. All the patients in the study had had multiple 18-F-FDG-PET scans to diagnose or track their cancer. Eleven of the studied patients had an FDG-PET scan prior to receiving treatment. In all cases, the scans showed characteristic mesothelioma disease … Continue reading Tracking Mesothelioma with FDG-PET » ...
It can be difficult to differentiate diffuse malignant peritoneal mesothelioma (DMPM) from reactive mesothelial hyperplasia (RMH) or peritoneal dissemination of gynecologic malignancies, such as epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC), which cause a large amount of ascites. Detection of the homozygous deletion of p16/CDKN2A (p16) by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) is an effective adjunct in the diagnosis of malignant pleural mesothelioma. The aim of this study was to investigate the ability of the p16 FISH assay to differentiate DMPM from RMH and EOC.. ...

Mesothelioma is a disease where cells in the mesothelium become abnormal and divide without order or control. The cancer cells can invade nearby tissues and organs or spread to other areas of the body. Mesothelioma usually affects the pleura, the membrane that surrounds the lungs. This form of the disease is called pleural mesothelioma. The peritoneum can also be affected, which is known as peritoneal mesothelioma. It rarely begins in the pericardium.. Mesothelioma can be divided into three types: epithelioid, sarcomatoid and mixed/biphasic. Epithelioid mesothelioma has the best outlook and makes up 50% to 70% of all mesothelioma cases.. Decades ago, researchers connected the development of mesothelioma to crocidolite asbestos exposure in South African miners. Approximately 70% to 90% of patients who develop mesothelioma have some prior asbestos exposure commonly through work. Mesothelioma cases tend to come from those working near or in shipyards and plants that produce asbestos ...
SOUSA, Susana Marques de et al. Malignant Peritoneal Mesothelioma as a Rare Cause of Dyspeptic Complaints and Ascites: A Diagnostic Challenge. GE Port J Gastroenterol [online]. 2020, vol.27, n.3, pp.197-202. ISSN 2341-4545. http://dx.doi.org/10.1159/000503075.. Introduction: Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma (MPM) is a rare malignancy of the mesothelial cells in the peritoneum. The best-defined risk factor is asbestos exposure, but germline mutations in BAP1 also increase susceptibility to this tumor. The diagnosis of MPM is challenging since clinical manifestations are often nonspecific. Case Presentation: We describe a case of MPM in a 53-year-old former construction worker with prior asbestos exposure. The clinical presentation was a 3-month history of dyspeptic complaints. As initial workup, abdominal ultrasound and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy were performed. Chronic gastritis due to Helicobacter pylori was detected, which was promptly treated but without symptom relief. Abdominal ...

Asbestos Cancer. Papillary mesothelioma is a very rare variation of epithelial mesothelioma. It is also referred to as well-differentiated papillary mesothelioma (WDPM). It is relatively benign, or has a low malignant potential, meaning that unlike most mesothelioma it is not likely to spread to other parts of the body. However, there have been cases of aggressive papillary mesothelioma, and treatment should not be delayed. WDPM normally responds well to treatment, and the prognosis for patients is good.. Who Gets Papillary Mesothelioma?. WDPM is usually found in women of reproductive years, and starts in the membrane which lines the abdominal cavity and surrounds the abdominal organs (peritoneum). It has been found in men, in the tunica vaginalis which is the outpouching of the peritoneum which surrounds the testicles. It has also been found in the protective sac around the heart (pericardium), the lining of the lungs (pleura), and the ovaries.. Papillary mesothelioma has not been as closely ...
Our results suggest that CK2α is over-expressed and positively regulates Hh/Gli1 signaling in human malignant pleura mesothelioma. This is supported by several lines of evidence. First, broadly aberrant over-expression of CK2 was demonstrated in most of the primary mesothelioma samples and cell lines we tested. Second, we found a statistically mild correlation between CK2 and Gli1 expression both at the mRNA and protein levels. Third, in experimental studies of mesothelioma cell lines, CK2α inhibition by siRNA or small-molecular inhibitor resulted in down-regulation of Gli1 expression and transcriptional activity. Finally, forced over-expression of CK2α led to Gli1 transcriptional activation.. To date, there is no evidence for the expression status of CK2 in mesothelioma, although CK2 reportedly affects cell growth in several types of tumor. Our study shows the broad over-expression of CK2α for the first time. Our findings suggest that CK2 may play an important role in mesothelioma ...

Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM), an aggressive malignant tumor of mesothelial origin associated with asbestos exposure, shows a limited response to conventional chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Therefore, the overall survival of MPM patients remains very poor. Progress in the development of therapeutic strategies for MPM has been limited. We recently reported that the calpain inhibitor, calpeptin exerted inhibitory effects on pulmonary fibrosis by inhibiting the proliferation of lung fibroblasts. In the present study, we examined the preventive effects of calpeptin on the cell growth of MPM, the origin of which is mesenchymal cells, similar to lung fibroblasts. Calpeptin inhibited the proliferation of MPM cells, but not mesothelial cells. It also prevented 1) the expression of angiopoietin (Ang)1 and Tie2 mRNA in MPM cells, but not mesothelial cells and 2) the Ang1induced proliferation of MPM cells through an NFkB dependent pathway, which may be the mechanism underlying the preventive effects of

Malignant mesothelioma is an aggressive tumor arising from mesothelial cells of serous membranes. Src family kinases (SFKs) have a pivotal role in cell adhesion, proliferation, survival and apoptosis. Here, we examined the effect of SFK inhibitors in NCI-H2052, ACC-MESO-4 and NCI-H28 cells, mesothelioma cell lines and Met5A, a human non-malignant mesothelial cell line. We found that PP2, a selective SFK inhibitor, inhibited SFK activity and induced apoptosis mediated by caspase-8 in NCI-H28 but not Met5A, NCI-H2052 and ACC-MESO-4 cells. Src, Yes, Fyn and Lyn protein, which are members of the SFK, were expressed in these cell lines, whereas NCI-H28 cells were deficient in Fyn protein. Small interfering RNA (siRNA) targeting Fyn facilitated PP2-induced apoptosis mediated by caspase-8 in NCI-H2052 and ACC-MESO-4 cells. PP2 reduced Lyn protein levels and suppressed SFK activity in all mesothelioma cell lines. Lyn siRNA induced caspase-8 activation and apoptosis in NCI-H28 cells but not in NCI-H2052 ...

Background Mesothelioma is often perceived as a locally aggressive cancer. The ability of mesothelioma to metastasise and how mesothelioma causes death are unclear. We studied mesothelioma cases from Western Australia (WA) where crocidolite mining has led to significant exposure of the population to asbestos.. Methods Postmortem records of all mesothelioma patients who underwent an autopsy were identified from the mesothelioma database (∼1600) of the WA Cancer Registry.. Results Of the 253 postmortem records identified, 208 were complete, including 190 cases of pleural and 18 peritoneal mesothelioma. Patients with pleural mesothelioma were predominantly (90%) males and 55% had right-sided tumour. Median survival was significantly longer in epithelioid mesothelioma over biphasic and sarcomatoid subtypes (262 vs 214 vs 127 days, ...
Asbestos-related diseases, in particular, the unique disease mesothelioma ia and the law governing compensation for mesothelioma Mesothelioma Cancer uniqueness do not also differs from other medical claims. Mesothelioma Cancer is unique, the exclusive nature of the disease. Mesothelioma asbestos exposure almost exclusively to the cause and other irregular activities in the cause of mesothelioma is currently known to medical science. Mesothelioma attributed to companies which manufacture products that contain asbestos as a result of negligence. (Which, for the manufacture of asbestos) companies are aware of the asbestos exposure such as mesothelioma and asbestosis health risks, but if they do not tell the workers or the general public about the leak can be a company of the injured. The production of asbestos mesothelioma asbestos exposure the companies knew of the development of the risk since the 1920s. ...
Asbestos Cancer Pleural mesothelioma is cancer of the lining of the lungs. It is not the same as lung cancer, but is sometimes referred to as asbestos lung cancer. Pleural mesothelioma is the most common type of mesothelioma, accounting for about 75% to 90% of mesothelioma cases. Most patients do not notice or recognize symptoms until 20 to 50 years after asbestos exposure, and may at first believe that they have another less serious illness. Pleural mesothelioma kills most victims within a year of diagnosis, but very early detection can greatly increase your life expectancy.. Pleural mesothelioma is a progressively debilitating and very painful form of cancer. It is caused by asbestos exposure. The majority of victims were exposed in the workplace, but exposure can occur in the home, at school, or in other settings.. The Pleura. The pleura is the mesothelium which surrounds the lungs. It protects and lubricates the lungs, helping them to function properly. It is made up of two layers:. ...
Mesothelioma Treatment Options - Mesothelioma Prognosis Unfortunately, mesothelioma is among the various diseases that continues to produce quite a disappointing and negative prognosis. To this day, there is no known or medically-accepted cure for mesothelioma. If you need legal advice and assistance, contact mesothelioma lawyers. However, even though it is extremely rare, there have been cases where the disease has been cured without remission. Also, advancements in the treatment for mesothelioma have significantly improved the overall life expectancy in mesothelioma patients. Determining mesothelioma treatment options, there are various factors that must be considered. Among aspects to be considered, the most common are: • Stage of mesothelioma -The earlier that the disease is diagnosed, the better chance the patient will have of survival. • Patients age • Overall health status -If the disease has progressed to the extent that the health is considered to be poor, the mesothelioma treatment
Malignant mesothelioma is a rare type of cancer. It develops from transformed cells originating in the mesothelium, the protective thin membrane encompassing the bodys internal organs and cavities. There are three recognized forms of malignant mesothelioma: Pleural mesothelioma is the most common type of the disease (roughly 70% of all cases) and occurs in the outer lining of the lungs and internal chest wall, peritoneal mesothelioma occurs in the lining of the abdominal cavity, and pericardial mesothelioma originates in the pericardium, the sac that surrounds the heart.. Malignant mesothelioma is usually caused by exposure to asbestos and the inhalation of asbestos particles. Inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers may cause an inflammation of internal tissue and disrupt organ function leading to the development of mesothelioma. In most cases, the symptoms of mesothelioma such as shortness of breath, lower back pain or side chest pain will only appear years after exposure and are frequently ...
Mesothelioma is an intractable tumor with no curative treatment to date. In a first step toward developing targeted therapeutics against mesothelioma, we sought to identify internalizing antibodies that target mesothelioma-associated cell surface antigens. Taking a functional approach, we have used a nonimmune phage antibody library as an unbiased random-shaped affinity repertoire to select for tumor-targeting scFvs on live mesothelioma cells. The selection methodology was optimized to enrich for scFvs that efficiently target internalizing epitopes (17, 37, 38), providing a means of efficient intracellular payload delivery to mesothelioma cells. We identified 95 unique mesothelioma-targeting scFvs, 21 of which were further characterized by FACS profiling on tumor cell lines, immunohistochemistry on mesothelioma tissue samples, and in vitro internalization/payload delivery assays. All 21 scFvs bind to both epithelioid and sarcomatoid type mesothelioma cell lines. In addition, all 21 scFvs stain ...
This study will examine whether environmental asbestos deposits in California are associated with increased rates of mesothelioma, a rare cancer of the pleura and peritoneum that occurs almost solely as a result of asbestos exposure. The project brings together a multidisciplinary team to address geologic occurrence of asbestos in California, potential human exposure based on population patterns and known occupational exposures, and epidemiologic characteristics of disease in the state. The study will provide the ability to assess age-, race- and sex- adjusted mesothelioma rates in relation to asbestiform type and location as determined by geographic mapping. Previous epidemiological studies of asbestos-induced malignancy have focused primarily on occupation asbestos exposures. Studies in other countries have documented mesotheliomas due to environmental asbestos exposure, but there has been little research on this in the U.S. Information on mesothelioma cases from 1988-96 will be obtained from ...
Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that forms tumors in and around ones vital organs. These tumors result in the lining of these organs becoming abnormal, imperiling an individuals life in the process. The rise of mesothelioma has been linked to the use of asbestos in the building and manufacturing industries. Beginning in the 1940s, thousands of workers in locations such as shipyards and power plants inhaled or ingested asbestos, which resulted in many of these workers developing mesothelioma later in life. Currently, there are three known forms of mesothelioma, which are determined by the location of ones tumors. If an individual has developed tumors in their abdominal lining, then they have peritoneal mesothelioma. If the tumors manifest in ones lungs, then they can be said to have pleural mesothelioma. The most severe form of mesothelioma is pericardial mesothelioma, which attacks the lining of the heart.. Ones mesothelioma prognosis depends on a number of factors. These include the type ...

Malignant mesothelioma is an asbestos-related fatal disease with no effective cure. Recently, high dose of ascorbate in cancer treatment has been reexamined. We studied whether high dose of ascorbic acid induced cell death of four human mesothelioma cell lines. High dose of ascorbic acid induced cell death of all mesothelioma cell lines in a dose-dependent manner. We further clarified the cell killing mechanism that ascorbic acid induced reactive oxygen species and impaired mitochondrial membrane potential. In vivo experiment, intravenous administration of ascorbic acid significantly decreased the growth rate of mesothelioma tumor inoculated in mice. These data suggest that ascorbic acid may have benefits for patients with mesothelioma.. Ascorbate induces autophagy in pancreatic cancer.. Ascorbate (ascorbic acid, vitamin C) is one of the early, unorthodox treatments for cancer. The evidence upon which people base the use of ascorbate in cancer treatment falls into two categories: clinical data ...

Apoptosis is a special form of cell death that if non-functional may lead to diseases such as cancer. A reduction of the intracellular potassium ion (K+) content is necessary for activating enzymes important for the execution of apoptosis. Pharmacological modulation of K+ fluxes to reduce intracellular K+ in cancer cells might therefore force the cells into apoptosis and decrease tumour cell mass.. Human malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a form of cancer often caused by asbestos exposure. Although asbestos has been banned in the Western World, the incidence of MPM is expected to increase. Cisplatin is the first-line chemotherapy for MPM, but acquired resistance to the drug is a clinical problem.. This thesis is mainly based on work with the human malignant pleural mesothelioma cell line (P31 wt) and a cisplatin-resistant sub-line (P31 res). The aim was to first characterize K+ fluxes in P31 wt and P31 res cells, and then manipulate them in order to reduce intracellular K+ and induce ...

Cases of long-term survival with mesothelioma are reported in medical literature, as well as a few cases of spontaneous remission. Long-term survival is more common than spontaneous remission. Only a few cases of spontaneous remission are reported in medical literature (see below, with citations). Some people survive more than a decade with mesothelioma, and recent research indicates some of them share genetic factors that appear to improve their survival. A rare few live for decades with mesothelioma and eventually die of another disease. For example, the esteemed evolutionary biologist Steven A. Gould lived for 20 years with peritoneal mesothelioma before dying of another unrelated condition. Spontaneous remission is less common, but a few cases are documented. For example, a 73-year-old Japanese man with pleural mesothelioma underwent surgery to remove as much cancer as possible. After surgery, tumors grew back, which is very common. The patient tried complementary therapies involving a ...
OBJECTIVES--To evaluate a case-control study of malignant mesothelioma through patterns of exposure to asbestos based upon information from telephone interviews with next of kin. METHODS--Potential cases, identified from medical files and death certificates, included all people diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and registered during 1975-1980 by the Los Angeles County Cancer Surveillance Program, the New York State Cancer Registry (excluding New York City), and 39 large Veterans Administration hospitals. Cases whose diagnosis was confirmed in a special pathology review as definite or probable mesothelioma (n = 208) were included in the analysis. Controls (n = 533) had died of other causes, excluding cancer, respiratory disease, suicide, or violence. Direct exposure to asbestos was determined from responses to three types of questions: specific queries as to any exposure to asbestos; occupational or non-vocational participation in any of nine specific activities thought to entail exposure to ...

The etiology of WDPM has not been clearly elucidated. It has been suggested that proliferative lesions might be related to local trauma, herniorrhaphy, or a long-term hydrocele.17 A relationship between asbestos exposure and mesotheliomas of the tunica has been postulated. Only one case of WDPM of the tunica vaginalis in the literature had a history of asbestos exposure7 and one had a history of a household contact with exposure.4 Our case had no asbestos exposure like the rest majority of reported cases. In addition to asbestos, potassium bromate in drinking water has been shown to increase the risk of MM of the tunica vaginalis in an animal model.15 SV40 is a DNA monkey virus that has been associated with MM and has been implicated in mesotheliomas of the pleura. SV40 contaminated polio vaccines produced between 1955 and 1978 are postulated to have been the route of virus transmission from monkeys to humans. Many studies have demonstrated the presence of SV40 in pleural mesotheliomas through ...

Malignant mesothelioma of the tunica vaginalis testis is an extremely rare tumor without specific clinical manifestations, mainly including hydrocele formation and a painless mass. We herein present the case of a patient with hydrocele of the left testis, without any other complaints. Tunica vaginalis subinvolution was performed, and postoperative pathological examination revealed a malignant mesothelioma arising from the left tunica vaginalis testis. Whole‑body positron emission tomography‑computed tomography (PET‑CT) and subsequent abdominal and pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed no evidence of local lymphadenopathy. Radical left orchiectomy was performed after the pathological diagnosis. The pathological examination after the second surgery demonstrated that the tumor had invaded the adjacent periorchium and spermatic cord, but there was no evidence of local lymph node metastasis. Pemetrexed and cisplatin were administered at a dose of 900 and 130 mg, respectively, on the ...
Schools in Granite City, Illinois will finally be safer and pose less of a mesothelioma risk for students and teachers alike, as asbestos abatement will occur at the schools over the next two summers. According to St. Louis Todays Suburban Journals, the school board for Granite City recently voted to award $893,351 in contracts to remove asbestos floor tiles containing asbestos at six elementary and middle schools in the district. The money for the abatement will come from $6 million in building improvement bonds that were approved by school board last spring. In total, about 200,000 square feet of the asbestos tile will be replaced over the next two summers. It is the latest asbestos abatement project for the school district, which first began removing asbestos products from its schools in the late 1980s. If you or a loved one has developed mesothelioma following years of asbestos exposure, contact Sokolove Law today to learn more about pursuing a mesothelioma claim. ...

The diagnosis of MPM is always challenging because (1) MPM may appear in patients up to 30-40 years after exposure to asbestos; (2) the clinical and imaging signs of MPM are non-specific; and (3) a definitive diagnosis, which relies on histology, can sometimes be very difficult to achieve, even with the use of immunohistochemistry.5 To date, no single marker or panel of soluble biomarkers is available for a clear diagnosis of MPM.51 ,52. In the present meta-analysis our results indicated that the pooled sensitivity of serum and PF SMRPs was 0.61 and 0.79, respectively, and their specificity was 0.87 and 0.85, respectively. These data indicated that the sensitivity and specificity of SMRPs in serum and PF were not as high as expected. SMRPs might be helpful in confirming (ruling in) MPM if the results are higher than the cut-off values. Thus, positive SMRP test results suggested that invasive diagnostic steps such as medical thoracoscopy might be necessary. On the other hand, the low sensitivity ...

MM is a localized tumor of the pleural or peritoneal cavity, which is closely associated with asbestos exposure. Despite the banning of asbestos in the United States , 25 years ago, this neoplasm continues to be diagnosed due to a long latency period between exposure and clinical disease. In fact, incidence of MM in the United States is expected to rise over the next decade due to this long latent period (1) . Furthermore, in countries such as Italy, Australia, and South Africa, incidence of this malignancy is much higher than in the United States because of more recent asbestos exposure, abandoned mines, and inadequate occupational protection guidelines. In fact, epidemiological studies predict that up to a quarter of one million Europeans will develop MM during the next few decades (11) . There is currently no effective treatment for mesothelioma, and most patients succumb to the disease within 2 years of diagnosis (2) . In this article, we provide evidence that taurolidine, a synthetic ...
Introduction RON/MST1R is a member of the MET tyrosine kinase family and has a putative role in several cancers. Macrophage stimulating protein (MSP) is the only known ligand for RON/MST1R. The MSP-RON signalling pathway has been implicated in a variety of cellular functions such as macrophage activity and wound healing. We have previously identified MST1R/RON as frequently activated in MPM, and high positivity for RON staining was an independent predictor of favourable prognosis.. Methods A panel of mesothelioma cell lines were screened for the expression of MSP and RON at the mRNA and protein level. The proliferative response of Ju77, H226 and Met5A (non-malignant transformed human pleural mesothelial cells) to MSP treatment was determined. A phospho-kinase array was utilised to detect the downstream signalling pathways activated upon MSP stimulation. The effect of two MST1R/RON inhibitors (a) a pre-clinical monoclonal antibody (RON8, Imclone) and (b) a small molecule inhibitor on ...
Peritoneal mesothelioma for the primary and peritoneal mesothelium cell tumor of the organization, clinical rare. Pathology can be divided into adenomatoid mesothelioma , cystic mesothelioma and malignant mesothelioma (peritoneal malignant mesothelioma, PMM). The first two are benign. Cystic mesothelioma was particularly prevalent in women, the cause is unknown, occurred in the surrounding pelvic or annex, was single or multiple cystic masses; patients often palpable abdominal mass and treatment. PMM account for about 30% of malignant mesothelioma; its occurrence and also closely related to asbestos exposure, about 5% of the patients have a history of exposure [1]; asbestos fiber intake by mouth, through the intestinal wall and translocation to the peritoneal disease . Exposure to asbestos from the diagnosis, the disease incubation period of up to 25 to 40 years. However, from 1951 to 1993, domestic 20 reported 161 cases of PMM in only 1 case has a history of exposure to asbestos. No history of ...
Most people who develop mesothelioma have worked on jobs where they inhaled asbestos particles, or they have been exposed to asbestos dust and fiber in other ways. It has also been suggested that washing the clothes of a family member who worked with asbestos can put a person at risk for developing mesothelioma.[3] Unlike lung cancer, there is no association between mesothelioma and smoking, but smoking greatly increases the risk of other asbestos-induced cancers.[4] Compensation via asbestos funds or lawsuits is an important issue in mesothelioma (see asbestos and the law ...

Currently, mesothelioma mortality surveillance is based on territorial cancer registries in Germany [50], on death certificates in Great Britain [9], and on both in the United States [51,52], whereas Italian ReNaM is one of the largest extent system of epidemiological surveillance for MM and also in the field of occupational disease monitoring [24]. By the early 1960s, while in the Great Britain, the United States and Scandinavian countries, asbestos consumption was already decreasing, unfortunately, the Italian consumption rose in the same period and began to decrease only when it was known a ban would be put in place [24]. The development of a complete national cancer incidence registry in the Scandinavian countries contribute to systematic linkage with occupational information archives [53-55]. The Italian ReNaM dataset has some critical limitations because its development has been non-homogeneous [24]. In Taiwan, the majority of asbestos used was imported with the amount peaking at 35,000 ...

Our estimate of the economic burden of illness in Canada attributable to occupational asbestos exposure is $C831 million in direct and indirect costs for newly identified cases of mesothelioma and lung cancer in 2011 and $C1.521 billion in quality of life costs based on a value of $C100 000 per QALY. This amounts to $C356 429 and $C652 369 per case, respectively. Our estimate of the economic burden of illness is $C2.352 billion for newly identified cases of mesothelioma and lung cancer in 2011. To put it into perspective, the Canadian economy had a gross domestic product of $C1.8 trillion that year, so the burden identified represents 0.131% of this amount. Though this fraction may not seem large, the monetary amount is nonetheless substantive, particularly given that it is only newly diagnosed cases and a conservative estimate of the incidence of illness and related costs due to asbestos exposure. We did not consider other illnesses known to be attributable to asbestos exposure such as pleural ...

The daughter of mesothelioma victim, Julie MacDougall, has started a charity in her fathers name to help raise awareness for the rare cancer. Julies father John MacDougall was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2006 when he was rushed to the hospital after collapsing and complaining of breathlessness, heavy sweating, and bloating. John MacDougall died at the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy, U.K., in August 2008; he was only 60 years old. Now nearly two years since her fathers death, Julie, with her mother and brother, has started the John MacDougall Mesothelioma Trust to help others just like her family and her father. Julie has said that starting this charity in memory of her father is the way she is coping with her loss. John MacDougalls mesothelioma diagnosis has been attributed to his early days as a shipyard worker during the 1960s and 70s. Like many shipyard workers of this time, he was exposed to asbestos by handling asbestos-laden products and materials- as part of his job. In 2007, John ...

Research directly links asbestos exposure to deadly diseases like mesothelioma and lung cancer. The government has acknowledged the long-term danger associated with asbestos exposure by imposing training guidelines, like wearing hazmat suits, to ensure its safe removal from buildings. The irony is obvious when you consider that just last year the United States still exported 715 tons of this deadly poison, which kills 10,000 Americans annually, to use in shingles, brake pads and other household appliances.. More than four decades ago, the Environmental Protection Agency declared asbestos a known human carcinogen yet were still importing it in 2010?. Its hard to convince the public a total ban is needed when they already believe its outlawed. Even politicians believe a ban is in place. As the Simmons law firm attends the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundations 2010 International Symposium on Malignant Mesothelioma this week, Im reminded of a story from last years event..

March 22, 2010 (Wilmington, DE) - David Marshall obtained a defense verdict on behalf of a national building products manufacturer of asbestos cement pipe in a wrongful death case. The plaintiff alleged household asbestos exposure from his father, a pipe layer at an Army ammunition plant in Kansas. The plaintiff developed peritoneal mesothelioma and died at the age of 38. There were no other defendants remaining in the case at the time of trial. The defendant presented evidence that the pipe used by the plaintiffs father was that of another manufacturer and also presented evidence that the mesothelioma was idiopathic in nature and was not related to any asbestos exposure. The case was tried over a two-week period in Wilmington, Delaware before the Honorable Mary Johnston.. This was only the second case to go to verdict in Delaware since the recent dramatic increase in filings there. The first verdict yielded an award of over $2 million.. ...

According to Guerreros complaint, cost overruns and delays were imposing significant pressure on the city to get the job done, and that led to asbestos safety concerns being dismissed. It reads in part, The remodeling became much more extensive than planned, which thus disturbed more asbestos, frequently contaminating and re-contaminating work areas. Respondent (the city) was under extraordinary public scrutiny and pressure due to severe cost overruns and occupancy delays.. The claim points to the city ending its contract with its long-time air monitoring contractor to support its assertion that it acted to diminish awareness of the potential for mesothelioma risk, saying the city was using its control of sampling protocols to intentionally avoid reporting the extent of asbestos contamination which it could in turn utilize to mislead regulators and continue to expose unknowing workers, including claimant..
