(PRWEB) May 12, 2014
The Mesothelioma Victims Center has found an article recently published by Science Daily that suggests mesothelioma is usually diagnosed in an advanced stage, and is sharing it this week as a wake up call to all diagnosed victims and their family members. The group is convinced the vast majority of diagnosed victims of mesothelioma in the United States lose out on what could be hundreds of thousands, and or millions of dollars in compensation. All too often the Center hears about victims waiting too long to begin the financial compensation process, or hiring a less qualified local personal injury attorney, mesothelioma cable TV or Internet middleman marketing law firm, and losing out on what could be significant compensation.
According to the Science Daily article, “Mesothelioma is a very aggressive cancer associated with asbestos exposure that is usually diagnosed in an advanced stage. So far no therapeutic strategy has proven effective against this deadly cancer and the prognosis remains very poor with only few exceptions. In December 2013, the research team of Antonio Giordano, a pathologist, Director and Founder of the Sbarro Health Research Organization in Philadelphia, PA, and Professor of Pathology and Oncology at the University of Siena, Italy, published two separate studies aiming to address the urgent need to identify possible new methods for mesothelioma treatment.”
