Phase III Clinical Trial for Mesothelioma Available in 50 Locations Across the Globe

A Phase III clinical trial is now underway in the pivotal study of interferon alfa-2b gene therapy in pleural mesothelioma. After promising results from the Phase II clinical trial, scientists and researchers are hopeful they are just one step away from FDA approval for this cancer treatment that is over 20 years in the making.


FDA Approves Genetic-Based Cancer Treatment that Could Help Mesothelioma Patients

Correcting genes that allow cancerous tumors to grow is the basis behind gene therapy, a relatively new treatment that is largely in experimental stages. The initial goals of gene therapy were to address hereditary genetic disorders, but other factors such as the sun, smoking, chemical exposure, etc., can all damage and change our DNA and


Effective Chemotherapy May Rest Upon Reducing Overactive Enzyme

Chemotherapy for mesothelioma patients has been notoriously difficult and the cancer continues to be overwhelmingly unresponsive to such treatment in many cases. However, researchers and scientists have been continually investigating new techniques that involve adjusting how chemotherapy reacts on a cellular level. A study published in the Frontiers in Pharmacology examines a specific enzyme that


Gene Therapy and DNA Sequencing for Malignant Mesothelioma

Genes are the basic unit of DNA that creates unique proteins used for specific cellular function. The expression of that gene creates an effect and if a gene cannot make a specific protein, this can lead some health risks or problems. A multifactorial disorder, like cancer, heart disease, and diabetes, are the result of multiple
