Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. It most often affects the lining of the lungs or the abdomen, but also rarely affects the lining of the heart. There is currently no known cure. The Meso Foundation is the national organization dedicated to finding a cure and eradicating mesothelioma as a life-ending disease by funding mesothelioma research projects around the world; helping mesothelioma patients connect with experts and learn about treatment options; and through advocacy on a national level to secure funding for mesothelioma research.

    This research into the BAP1 is a great step towards finding a cure for mesothelioma. Early detection is of the utmost importance when fighting this horrific disease. Our firm is excited to learn more about the impact these developments could have on the lives of those suffering from mesothelioma as well as their families.

    Thank you for your comment! It is exciting to see progress being made in the fight against mesothelioma. This research could make a difference in the lives of so many people. It was a pleasure to be able to virtually attend the Meso Foundation conference this year, as well.

    An individual may be at risk to develop mesothelioma if he or she was exposed to asbestos in the workplace or at home. Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos and the inhalation of asbestos particles. In most cases, mesothelioma symptoms will not appear in an individual exposed to asbestos until many years after the exposure has occurred. Those with a past asbestos exposure history experiencing symptoms should consult a physician with experience in accurately diagnosing mesothelioma. The earlier mesothelioma is diagnosed, the more likely it is to be caught at an early stage. At earlier stages of mesothelioma progression, more treatment options are available and often times a better prognosis is given. Get a Free Law Firm to Handle Your Mesothelioma Cases Here!
