One promising study has utilized viruses modified to seek out mesothelioma cells.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 18, 2014
ResearchMesotheliomaCancer.com, a website that is devoted to helping mesothelioma patients and their families learn all they can about the serious form of cancer, has just launched its new and user-friendly website. In addition to explaining about common mesothelioma symptoms, http://www.researchmesotheliomacancer.com/ also offers in-depth information about the various disease types, technologies, and treatments.
For example, one of the new articles, http://www.researchmesotheliomacancer.com/pericardial-mesothelioma-types-mesothelioma/, discusses pericardial mesothelioma, a form of the cancer that affects the lining of the heart. Found in less than 10 percent of all cases, pericardial mesothelioma is a very rare form of secondary lung cancer. People who are suffering from this type of cancer typically have a chronic cough, chest pain, and an abnormal heartbeat. In addition, they may also experience shortness of breath and a milder cough instead of one that is more severe.
The new website, http://researchmesotheliomacancer.com/, also offers details about some experimental treatments that might provide mesothelioma patients and their loved ones with a welcome ray of hope. For example, gene therapy is a new approach that involves adding new genes to mesothelioma cells so that they will then weaken the cancerous cells and cause them to die.
“One promising study has utilized viruses modified to seek out mesothelioma cells,” the article noted, adding that once the viruses find them, they inject them with an infection that causes the cells to shrink or die.
Another new article on the website (http://www.researchmesotheliomacancer.com/pleural-mesothelioma-types-of-mesothelioma/) that is already getting a lot of attention from readers looks at the pleural form of the disease. As the article explains, as asbestos fibers assault the pleural cavity, malignant tumors can develop in the area and then prevent the lungs from functioning as they should. Symptoms of pleural mesothelioma include chest pain, coughing up blood, a loss of appetite, and fever.
