The Mesothelioma Victims Center is sharing new information from Science Daily for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma and their family members. The article highlights a new “Smart” approach for treating mesothelioma. After helping diagnosed victims of mesothelioma for nearly a decade, the group is calling this news a significant breakthrough for victims, provided the person is diagnosed in the early stages of this illness.
The Victims Center says, "We are incredibly passionate about making certain all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma get the best possible compensation for this rare form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. We are equally as passionate about making certain all diagnosed victims get the best possible treatment options. What makes us unique is we marry a specific victim to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys to ensure they get the best possible compensation, and based on the condition of the victim, we research the most viable treatment options in their specific area, region, or the nation.
"We think the SMART approach discussed in Science Daily is a game changer, especially for individuals diagnosed in the early stages of mesothelioma." For more information diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, or their family members are urged to contact the Mesothelioma Victim Center anytime at 866-714-6466. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
According to Science Daily on January 20th, 2014, "Results of clinical research that treated mesothelioma with radiation before surgery show the three-year survival rate more than doubled for study participants afflicted with this deadly disease, compared to treating with surgery first.
"The SMART approach significantly reduced the treatment cycle for patients to one month from five months. It also reduced the risk of recurrence because the radiation wiped out the cancer’s ability to seed itself elsewhere in the chest or abdomen during surgery. These research results offer real hope to mesothelioma patients who have too often been told in the past that they may have only six months to live according to the study.
