New York, NY (PRWEB) August 30, 2008
The National Mesothelioma Virtual Bank is a web-based database that provides mesothelioma researchers virtual access to tissue samples and related clinical data on over 600 individual cases of mesothelioma. These case files are highly annotated and easily searchable due to the Bank's richly-structured data architecture that allows researchers to cross-reference vast data sets and to precisely identify the information necessary for their research.
Belluck & Fox believes that greater access to research materials is essential for the development of more effective diagnostic and treatment techniques and we support any project that can benefit the lives of mesothelioma patients. As a firm with a history of representing victims of asbestos, we are very familiar with the difficulties of treating mesothelioma, but we remain hopeful that medical science will one day develop a cure for this terrible disease.
