The Mesothelioma Victims Center believes one of the biggest issues facing individuals diagnosed with mesothelioma is that without an annual checkup it is very difficult to detect this very rare form of cancer, which is why the group is advocating victims have a yearly x-ray performed by a skilled radiologist if they had heavy exposure to asbestos decades ago. The Center believes a recent news announcement about biomarkers could be the kind of breakthrough that might allow for earlier detection of mesothelioma, and as a result better treatment options. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Mesothelioma Victims Center is 100% focused on making certain all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma and their family receives the best possible compensation for this rare form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. They are also doing everything possible to create more awareness of mesothelioma, and the need for early detection for individuals exposed to asbestos at work decades ago. This early detection includes annual chest x-rays, to ensure a worker who had heavy exposure to abestos decades ago does not have masses, or benign tumors on their lungs. The Victims Center noticed a recent article about early detection of mesothelioma that gave them hope about possible early detection. This article was focused on biomarkers.

According to June 6th 2014 article by Chromatography Today, "A team at the Copenhagen University Hospital in Denmark has identified four biomarkers which could help identify between malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) and non-cancerous pleural tissue with reactive mesothelial proliferations (RMPs). This is a common but difficult diagnostic problem in pleural biopsy samples taken from patients who have suspected MPM. The ability to make quicker and more accurate diagnoses could help improve patient outcomes.”

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “The study, which was published in the Journal of Molecular Diagnostics, aimed to find micro RNA's, which are small, non-coding RNA strands made of around 22 nucleotides. They were of interest as previous research has shown their ability to be diagnostic, prognostic and predictive markers in other cancers. We are urging individuals who had heavy exposure to asbestos in a power plant, a oil refinery, a manufacturing facility, in while serving in the US Navy to have annual physical exams that include a x-ray, because the sooner this disease is diagnosed the better the treatment options, and potential compensation for the victim."
