LegalView recently used its mesothelioma blog to report on scientific research regarding a natural treatment for malignant pleural mesothelioma victims. Researchers released the report, which found certain types of immune cells in the body to be a top defense against the cancerous mesothelioma cells.

LegalView, the most comprehensive legal resource available on the Internet, used its mesothelioma information blog to disseminate research on a naturally occurring treatment for victims of malignant pleural mesothelioma. The research published in the June issue of the Journal of Thoracic Surgery, claims that a certain type of immune cell, which is a naturally occurring cell in humans, may offer a better prognosis for patients suffering from the severe form of mesothelioma cancer. In the study, Canadian researchers tested samples of mesothelioma that had been removed from patients suffering from the cancer. Researchers then determined the specific cell count for a type of immune cell, and compared the cell count to the patient's survival. Scientists determined that patients with higher levels of the CD8+ immune cells faired much better than their counterparts.

Malignant pleural mesothelioma, also commonly referred to as MPM among the medical community, is considered one of the most deadly forms of mesothelioma cancer and the prognosis for many is often grim, with a life expectancy of only several months. Mesothelioma is caused through the inhalation of asbestos fibers and dust, which are derived from a mineral known as vermiculite. Asbestos contained the makings of a highly noncombustible substance that was inexpensively produced, thus causing the widespread use of asbestos in insulation. The asbestos-ridden insulation was placed into homes, apartment buildings, schools, universities, ships, office buildings and hospitals. Currently, asbestos can be found in a number of complexes throughout the country, as not all asbestos was removed upon discovery of its cancer-causing affects. Individuals suffering from this condition are urged to locate an experienced mesothelioma attorney and receive a consultation on a potential mesothelioma lawsuit. Because of the expensive medical bills associated with this deadly condition, relief may be available in the form of litigation and thus monetary compensation as a potential outcome.

The malignant pleural mesothelioma study on the CD8+ immune cell noted that the naturally occurring cell is part of the T-lymphocyte cell type, which are cells that locate and destroy virus-infected cancerous cells. While studies have been conducted to test the effects of natural immune boosters, such as mushrooms, teas and vitamins, there remains an ethical debate regarding this type of treatment for patients. Further, it has been debated by some that the monetary loss of the pharmaceutical community would be severe if treatments were derived from these naturally occurring ingredients rather than from marketable treatments, although this argument is only an based on speculation from individuals.
