Advanced biopharma may offer mesothelioma treatment options

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that affects people in Ohio who have worked with asbestos. In most cases, people are only diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma once the cancer has developed significantly. As a result, they may have few options for effective treatment, although early detection may provide more opportunities. Some people may develop mesothelioma decades after asbestos exposure, usually at work in industries that involved heavy contact with the dangerous fibers. While mesothelioma typically develops in the lining of the lungs, it can also affect the heart, abdomen, testicles, and other parts of the body.

Some technological developments may offer new opportunities for people to be diagnosed and treated earlier on in the development of mesothelioma, including artificial intelligence technologies that model the human immune system. By scanning the tissue of mesothelioma patients, biopharma technologies may be able to differentiate mesothelioma patients with a high degree of accuracy, leading to earlier diagnoses and treatment. In addition, these technologies might be able to discern which patients are likely to respond to different treatment options. There are other high-tech developments that could provide opportunities for future mesothelioma patients, including the potential to create artificial, bio-identical organs for transplant.

Most people who develop mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos, which was widely used in construction and other industries until the 1980s. Because mesothelioma can develop for many decades after initial exposure, new patients who were exposed to asbestos are continuing to be diagnosed, with up to 3,000 cases discovered every year. Up to 10% of workers who are exposed to asbestos may develop mesothelioma later in life.

Asbestos-related illnesses like mesothelioma can be devastating, leading to severe complications and costly medical bills. Victims may want to consult with an attorney about the potential to pursue compensation for their losses.
