The Mesothelioma Victims Center is pointing to a new study from Spain that indicates high dose radiation combined with radical surgery for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma added no benefit as far as lengthening the life of a victim was concerned. However, the Mesothelioma Victims Center is suggesting some new US treatments may offer better results with the qualifier being that the earlier the individual is diagnosed the better their chance of extending their life becomes. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

“This week the Mesothelioma Victims Center is sharing a recent new article from Spain on the topic of radical surgery treatment options and high radiation therapy being offered to those who may not know that other options exist. Here in the United States, there are highly successful alternative options to the invasive procedures we ran across in this article,” says the Mesothelioma Victims Center.

According to the EUROPEAN SOCIETY FOR MEDICAL ONCOLOGY, "High-dose radiotherapy adds no survival benefit after chemotherapy and radical surgery in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma, according to a phase 2 study presented here at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress 2014.”

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “The findings go on to explain: 'Tests were done to see if see if the adjuvant therapy could prevent relapse or at least delay it,' —current ESMO president and lead author Rolf A. Stahel, MD, from the clinic and policlinic for oncology at the University Hospital Zurich. Stahel goes on to say, 'We aimed for a 6-month delay in local recurrence, which would be meaningful because it's an aggressive treatment for patients."

The Center says, "The saddest thing about mesothelioma is that it is typically diagnosed in a late stage. This is what our experience, shows at least. We have been doing everything possible to try to make certain that individuals who had workplace exposure to asbestos know to have an annual medical checkup performed to make certain their is no indication that mesothelioma is present or possibly developing. The new Spanish study is heartbreaking, but it should also be a wake up call for a victim of this rare form of cancer and their family members.
