The protein research being done at Mass General is the second possible breakthrough we have heard about this year and it gives us hope
(PRWEB) July 18, 2014
The Mesothelioma Victims Center is excited to share the recent news released by Science Daily that researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital have designed a new therapy for mesothelioma victims. The group says, “We have been helping victims and family members of a victim for many years. Part of our service focuses on finding the most up-to-date treatment options, and this newest one is very promising.”
According to Science Daily in March of 2014, "A novel approach to cancer immunotherapy may provide a new and cost-effective weapon against some of the most deadly tumors, including ovarian cancer and mesothelioma. Investigators report that a protein engineered to combine a molecule targeting a tumor-cell-surface antigen with another protein that stimulates several immune functions prolonged survival in animal models of both tumors."

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We want diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, or their family members to have a sense of urgency about this rare form of cancer, especially if it is caught in an early stage. The protein research being done at Mass General is the second possible breakthrough we have heard about this year and it gives us hope.
“If a diagnosed victim of this rare form of cancer, or their family members call us at 866-714-6466, we make certain they have the best-of-the-best mesothelioma compensation attorneys. We also do everything possible, from a research standpoint, to make certain the victim and their family have access to the nation's top mesothelioma treatment centers.

The Mesothelioma Victims Center just might be the best-branded advocacy group on the Internet when it comes to the best possible compensation for all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, and how they offer instant access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys with just one call to 866-714-6466. However the group is now expanding their focus to include new treatment options for this malignant form of cancer, and they are urging diagnosed victims, or their families to call them for up to date information on treatment options.
Information About Mesothelioma For Diagnosed Victims And Their Families From The Mesothelioma Victims Center:
According to the US Center for Disease Control, the average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old. Frequently victims of mesothelioma are initially misdiagnosed with pneumonia. This year between 2,500 and 3,000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is attributable to exposure to asbestos.
High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include: US Navy Veterans, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, manufacturing workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, and construction workers. Typically the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s.
The states with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include: Pennsylvania, Maine, New Jersey, West Virginia, Florida, Wyoming, and Washington. However, based on the calls the Mesothelioma Victims Center receives diagnosed victims could be in any state including California, New York, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, and Alaska.
